After years of working, I eased into the more enjoyable but hectic role of being a full time wife, mother & personal assistant to the family very easily.
Movies blend my passion for travel, food, reading and observing people perfectly. I have no favorites as I enjoy all genres depending on the flavor of popcorn, just kidding.. depends on the mood of the moment or rather the flow of the movie. Good cinema can turn/bring ones mood to the movie being watched! What better than to share my view when I am opinionated.
We have a weekend ritual with our bestie couple of a dinner & movie, what is most important is to get recliner seats in a multiplex with the best popcorn & not miss the national anthem!
A new age, dark movie. So bold that it had me frowning. So well made that it had me cheering and so exceptional that it had me loving the flawed hero who doesn’t deserve or expect attention. The feminist in me did balk at the heroine, Kiara Advani, being taken for granted but it worked under the guise of med school ragging. I definitely expected a more glamorous lead actress and equally surprised at the subtle outfits and makeup of all the actors, art movie style subtlety.
This movie took me by total surprise.. liked it and enjoyed it and laughed at all the silly jokes and even felt the underlying pain felt by the parents of the child who can not feel pain. Losing his mom early and being brought up by an overprotective father, Surya, Abhimanyu Dasani, is fed on a diet of Superheroes by his Ajoba, Mahesh Manjrekar. Surya grows up in a secluded environment and is pretty messed up till a trip to the city and meeting his friend from his childhood, Supri, Radhika Madan just rights it all.
After years of denial Beni realises he wants Jyotsna back in his life and even ends up fighting with his best friend, Shankar for this in a shanty typical of small towns. The movie begins beautifully with numbers from old Hindi movies but soon slows and breaks down aimlessly with quite a few key notes left unsaid. Most importantly we don’t find out why Beni doesn’t go with Jyotsna in the first place!
