The sum of parts is less than the whole
12 October 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

"Nishabd" strictly speaking could have translated into the missing link between "Lolita" and "Cheeni Kum". RGV toyed with the media in an attempt to garner free publicity. The provoked media in turn added fuel to the fire. And finally the audience oscillated between speculation and fantasising. "Nishabd" as it finally turned out to be wasn't anything RGV/ media/ audience wanted.

"Nishabd" is a visual treat, you will fall in love with nature. Kudos to Amit Roy showcasing his talent of holding the camera. The background score is engaging. The single song Big B sings is good to listen thought doesn't blend in with the storyline. Technically the movie is brilliant. Every actor gives a calibrated performance. The audience gets an opportunity to see the subtlety which Big B manages to portray on the screen. There are many scenes as per the the conventional Bollywood rules could have dictated to be made as over-the-top. But RGV breaks away from the norm and makes it surreal.

Sadly all the goodness fails to make it a wholesome product. "Nishabd" is good in parts and at a few places it does not integrate with the spinal cord. Better writing and screenplay was warranted to convincingly flesh out the attraction between the pair in question. The audience had a serious disconnect on this front. Jiah Khan's character wasn't fleshed out adequately especially attempting to portray a product from a broken family goes astray on moral front. On the same note the character of the rest of the cast namely Revati, Shraddha, Nasser & Aftab are well written.
