People have a set notion about a film based on the promotions, banners, actors and music of the film- "Kalyug" is one victim of preconceived notions.It did pretty well in spite of a bad opening solely because the film is worth seeing.Mahesh Bhatt scripted "Kalyug" after being inspired by a real life incidence reported in a national magazine about a couple who were secretly taped during their honeymoon stay in a hotel.
I have to start this with a praise for the director Mohit Suri,once an assistant to Vikram Bhatt, his directorial skills were evident in his debut "Zeher".Even though the film was accused to be a rip-off it did do good business in all parts of India."Kalyug" however is very much original and thought-provoking.
Kunal (Kunal Khemu) and Renuka (Smiley Suri) is one happy couple,newly into marital bliss.They are forced to face the dungeons of misery,shame and trauma after their personal moments in a honeymoon suite are developed on the reel of a blue film.The video becomes an instant hit on the internet and porn CD markets all over India.Poor Renuka commits suicide after being tortured and traumatized by the police and the community.After having lost the only purpose of his life, he sets on a daunting journey to burst the racket behind the porn industry.He takes on the mights of Simi Roy (Amrita Singh), the woman behind the porn site that destroyed his life.
Kunal Khemu (once a child star in Mahesh Bhatt's Zakhm) has skills no doubts, just a bit low on the charisma factor, but you won't expect a newcomer to blaze the screen.Amrita Singh looks professional, vampish and cruel, a very well performed comeback.Emraan does a sweet supporting act, and you just can't help but love this character.Ashutosh Rana is influential and menacing just as expected from him.
The biggest USP of the film is definitely its direction and screenplay.The storytelling of this 24-25 year old director is simply great and he can surely teach a thing or two to the supposedly "established" big directors.
Overall a good film, a good theme and a significant message wrapped up in a well-packaged feature film.Only if the promos were a less misleading, the film could have received a better reception as no one expected it be a clean film in spite of its subject.
And the overall 7/10 rating is surely because of the 9/10 direction.
