I went to this movie coz there is a fine actor in the film. His name is Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He is man to watch out for and I hope that he continues doing some great work. His body of work till now is nothing short of greatness. It includes some great films made in last 10-15years. He continues to do and explore more realms by sticking to his good choices.
It saddened me that there were hardly anybody in the theatre. Maybe some 8-10 people in all, in a whole theatre to a film which was presented in the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Understandably, normal film going audience may not be understood. But do we have so very few aficionados. It is baffling and indeed threatening if anybody considers making in an offbeat film.
From the poster to the titles to every frame, the setting is reminiscent of the 1980's. It is near flawless art direction and kudos to the whole art team for achieving an incredible feat. The sound-design is immaculate too.
There are surely some disturbing things and even simple logic was missing at times. But I forgave all that, coz there was an attempt of honesty I saw behind this.
Surely, the film is questionable in many aspects. But this is not a film for everyone. Nevertheless, I liked it. If you ever try to watch, just beware. It may shock you or surprise you. A 3/5 for this.
