Khalid Mohamed's earlier films Fiza and Tehzeeb were good. Fiza was about search for a brother by a sister, the brother turns out to be an Islamic militant after communal violence that he witnessed as a child. The film had beautiful music by Anu Malik and a guest composition of Rehman AR. Then came Tehzeeb, a tribute to Bergman by Khalid. Tehzeeb is actually Hindi version of Bergman's Autumn Sonata. Bergman is known for his films where relationships take important place. Now, Khalid comes up with Silsilay.
The film is just the opposite of its poetic title. I guess this film does not take any inspiration from any 'good' move/novel/incident. Khalid perhaps was (re)viewing too much the sleaze films that have hit the Indian screen. So, this film turned out to be a mix: of relations as in Tehzeeb and the movies that I suppose Khalid was reviewing. The ideal story line for this film became 'relationship between male and female' Its (re)presentation on the screen turns out to be 'sexual relationships' between partners. Unfortunately, Khalid made the 'relationship' as 'relationship in bed'.
The music is the worst, perhaps, best suits the film!
I would like to end this by recording my sincere regret, disbelief of having seen a film of this type from what I thought a sensitive film maker like Khalid.
I do not recommend this movie to anyone, rather I am happy to suggest watching his other films Fiza and Tehzeeb.
