Bergman turning in his grave
22 March 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A terrible remake of Scenes From a Marriage. Try as hard as he would like to, Nihalani cannot absorb us into the movie like Bergman did. Bad direction, bad acting and bad story. Only the music is good. However I did like the character played by Vijay Kashyap, albeit it was very small. Shekhar Kapur is a bad actor, Dimple is pretty and tries to save the film but it is too much to ask of her. However, she too is unable to portray the complex nature of her character. There is no indication of her growing confidence and his sagging one. Both the artists have played out their parts in a draining monotone. Mita Vashisht is a much superior actor than Dimple.

The outdoor scenes of Mumbai do look great and it does not look like the same city. However therein lies the problem with these scenes. They are too unreal. It is downright impossible to be all alone in those places in Mumbai at that time. I understand that the director would choose to do it this way to ensure that the audience does not get distracted by the bystanders. However there are ways and means to shoot such scenes.

Don't bother with this movie, hire the original one instead. If that's not available, do yourself a favour and don't watch this anyways.
