Ram Gopal Varma does it again
27 October 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

Ram Gopal Varma executes his magic once again! Tackling a very different and difficult subject, the director does an excellent job in creating an entertaining film. We have all at one time or another as children imagined what it would be like to be invisible. Tusshar's character represents every person when they have felt depressed, lonely, and helpless, and Antra, their fantasy. Tusshar's daily frustrations leave him desperate enough to want to be invisible. His comic antics with his newly attained enchanted power are hilarious. Of course, "with every great power comes great responsibility."

Gayab is an interesting adventure of how an ordinary boy experiments, uses, tricks, abuses, and changes with the power of invisibility. Oh, and please answer this question: What is so great about Antra Mali??
