When I say I am a movie lover, I really mean movies like this…
This is a movie about police commissioner, Anupam Kher who remembers an old case when a character played by Naseeruddin Shah held the Mumbai police at ransom.
This movie boasts of dazzling performances. Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah live up to their reputation, giving a rare treat to movie watchers. Aamir Bashir and Jimmy Shergill also excel in august company.
But what I loved about the movie was the direction and editing. Written and directed by Neeraj Pandey, the movie has an awesome pace. I also loved the portrayal of policemen, refreshing change from the masala bollywood movies
Please dont get me wrong this movie is not perfect. It has its share of clichés and gaffes. But still it’s a heart touching and thought provoking. An honest attempt of making intelligent cinema. Believe me there are parts where you actually feel happy that finally someone left the moral high ground and talks for the common Indian on the streets.
My Rating: 4/5
