A bad movie with only one decent performance by Tabu
30 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Silsilay is a very bad movie about three women trying to cope with broken relationships.

The film's stories are told in parts by Shah Rukh Khan who acts as a sutradhar (narrator).

The first story is about a rising star of Bollywood, Zia (Bhumika Chawla). Zia was in love with a bookie named Neel (Rahul Bose). She gets pregnant and he dumps her. This leads to Zia's nervous breakdown and she finds solace in alcohol and a bullying sister, Dia (Divya Dutta, miscast!) The second story is of Anushka (Riya Sen, miscast too!) who is a receptionist. She loves a playboy named Nikhil (Ashmit Patel) who is only interested in sex. Anushka is unaware of Nikhil's womanizing ways. Her colleague Tarun (Jimmy Shergill) harbors romantic feelings for her but has not found the courage to tell her. Anushka's story is the worst and soulless part of the movie.

The third story is the most touching and without it, the film would've fallen flat on its face. It's about a high society housewife, Rehana (Tabu). She is the second wife to a business magnate, Anwar (Kay Kay Menon). Anwar is a womanizing bastard who has been in rather open affairs with girls. But Rehana decides to turn a blind eye on them. Rehana has a stepson Inayat (Karan Pathanky) who is an incest as he secretly harbors lustful feelings for his step mother.

As mentioned above, the third story and Tabu's performance are the only good thing about Silsilay.

Bhumika Chawla was good in parts but her actions in the climax could've been better explained. She's showing a huge improvement as an actress. Well, about Riya Sen, the less said the better. She's totally miscast in the role of a naive, young, small-town girl. Her facial expression is very stiff and she cannot emote through her eyes. This type of role called for her sister, Raima Sen, who is an actress of substance. Tabu is a magnificent actress. Any doubts about her brilliance will immediately be dispelled after watching this movie. She has the most expressive eyes and her hard-hitting dialogues will hit you right in the heart.

The other supporting casts are not that great. None of them raise above their expectations.

Silsilay is a film you better avoid. Watch this film once for Tabu!
