A fantastically dramatic directorial debut by Rahul Bose.What can I say? I loved the movie an its characters! quite extreme? of course, and quite rightly so .Bose's depiction of the wonderfully complicated lives of today's Mumbaiites who are brought together in the central theme of the movie.With a touch of Marquez's magical realism, the movie revolves around the need for self preservation through a pretence of normality.The characters want their chaotic lives buried away from the public eye as they continue to pretend that everything IS fine. Perversely enough, curiosity always gets the better of the public eye as they poke and prod and dig beneath the ground for treasures of guarded secrets. But do we really want to know the truth? For this flick the Indian audience need to fasten their seat-belts, for truth is bizarre, complex and utterly saddening. All in all a brave attempt and thoroughly enjoyable! An appeal to the Indian audience:
