A Superb Collage
30 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I'll be honest, half of the movie just flowed past me in a hurry. Watching this was like sitting on a beach and watching the waves. A movie that presents you with a whirlpool of ideas and a storm of striking images, this one is a true cult item that goes beyond experimentation. In the 100 minutes, this movie packs an enormous amount of satire and possibly the highest number of genres in a single wrapper. Taking a shot at everything from surrealism to extreme realism, Kamal Swaroop presents a truly exhaustive picture of the Indian middle class in a country full of diversity, but with a style that you will not fully grasp because it is just not possible. Certain things will stand out and haunt you forever but certain others, though maybe more important, will not sink in. It is, though, once in a life viewing experience
