Directed by: Prakash jha
From the director of Raajneeti
and many other serious movies
emerges another one. When i first heard of this movie,i didn’t even think i’ll be watching it in the theater. In fact, i didn’t think i would even watch it at home. I had seen bits and pieces of the movie through the promos and they didn’t really excite me in any way. But i knew that there was something about this movie keeping in mind that it had such a great star cast. And in the end since it was Prakash Jha and i had liked Rajneeti, i thought i should give this movie a try too. Believe me, not watching this movie would be one of the biggest regrets of my life!! It’s true that only people who like heavy movies would actually like the concept of the movie. People who go to watch movies with the intention of having fun and enjoying frankly wouldn’t like this movie.
First of all – the concept of the movie, the whole idea behind the making of the movie and the way the idea was depicted and portrayed throughout the movie was just simply brilliant. Well, I couldn’t have come up with this thought of making a movie based on ‘reservation’ ( Aarkshan ). The actual happenings in our society today were shown in the movie. Apart from the whole idea of showing the manner in which education is being treated today they had combined the corrupt mind of the politicians. Trust me on this, the cunning mind of the politicians and the thinking
of the world today about education is one combination you wouldn’t want to miss. Also, i loved the songs! All of them had this ‘desi’ sort of feel, the melody suited it just right and they even went well with the scenes. I must say that the charecters lived upto what was expected of them and everyone were just right for their roles. Mr. Amitabh Bacchan – I’d just like to say.. Respect sir!!
I somehow seem to love the way Mr. Prakash Jha tends to bring out practicality in a way that gets people into thought because until then i am sure none of us must have thought about it so seriously. In the end it all depends on your way of looking at things.. If you like heavy movies, believe me this one is going to top your list; well at least it did for me!!
Great movie !
And one of my all time favorites for sure
