Close Encounter of the Good Cinema Kind.
21 March 2004 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

Nana Patekar, the "Morgan Freeman" of Indian Cinema, has given some great perfs. as a village head in "Shakti", a mute in "Khamoshi". No one with an eye for good acting can miss the brilliance of this performer. A good script,a good supporting cast like Revathi, Yashpal Sharma, a crisp editing and direction makes this movie a winner. There are some great scenes and dialog-like when he first meets Zameer and explains him the "nuisance value," when he invites his subordinate for dinner and cooks "Sambar". The movie is dominated and sustained by Patekar, who takes you into the web of underworld-deceit,deception and corruption which may border on exxageration at some point but the outline to some extent is real life dilemma faced by the law enforcement. The word "Encounter" is a misnomer but it is accepted as most accept the word "Bollywood". Any movie that can hold your interest with one actor and a clever dialog is a good movie and coming from an established film House-it is even better.
