Mira Nair, Vishal Bhardwaj and Zoya Akhtar collaborate to make a little film on AIDS awareness. Nair's direction is quite solid but, while I understand the constraints due to the limited running time, I felt that the story and characters required development. 'Migration' most likely unintentionally, feeds the stereotype bogus that AIDS originates from homosexuals. This could have been avoided with more story development. All the performances are good. Shiny Ahuja particularly stands out (then again, he also had the best role). Arjun Mathur and Raima Sen are adequate. An incredibly beautiful Sameera Reddy shines as the frustrated housewife while Irfan Khan and Sulabha Deshpande are competent. In addition, the camera-work is quite good. Overall, 'Migration', though slightly contrived, is a well-executed film and an interesting watch.
