Quotes

Madhvi Sharma: I don't know what has happened to journalism.
Vinayak Mane: Who told you that you are a journalist? This is what you write in the page 3 column isn't it? Who went in whose party, with whom who went... And with whom who came back... What one wore, ate and drank what... And what one didn't wear. Miss Madhavi Sharma, this is called entertainment, not journalism.

A must see, a good movie after long time
22 February 2005 | by (SFO, CALIF) – See all my reviews

I did not like Chandni Bar from the same director.

I did not watch his other movies. They came and went.

But Page-3 is nicely made. Seems real. Like Satya from RGV did.

The mental sickness of the so called high society is the summary of the movie. In the midst of all the sickness, its difficult to lead a normal life which the protagonist, Konkana Sen, does. Serious movie, not to be watched with children or expecting wives. Page-3 of newspapers is the usual place for reporting the activities going on in the parties of the rich and elite who indulge in much more filth then what is reported. How this Page-3 is also a business prospect is shown in the movie. Event management firms get paid to arrange parties and make a rich but not famous people famous overnight by clicking photographs with the celebrities invited to the party.

The western culture has crept into the high society of Mumabi quite deeply. The movie shows it boldly, no holds barred.

Madhur Bhandarkar starts a new journey from here.
