Storyline

PANKH Director's take: Cinema within cinema has always fascinated filmmakers all across the globe. The film industry of each country has characteristics peculiar to their culture. That is what distinguishes them, makes them intriguing and anecdotes associated with each industry in a specific cultural context naturally lend themselves to interesting tales. The story of Baby Kusum is such an intriguing and horrifying tale. It is a story about life imitating art in a grotesque and bizarre way. This film seeks to probe into the mechanism that operates behind the creation of dreams. It highlights a phenomenon that was peculiar and exclusive to the Indian film industry--- the practise of casting children in roles opposite to their natural genders. We have had many instances of young girls being cast as boys in films and vice versa. Their screen names used to be changed to suit the gender they were playing on screen.

sharp cinema: twisted plot: Commendable directorial effort:wow performances.
22 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

~ Innovative script, i kept wondering while watching movie what must have been going on in the cru's minds when they were filming all this.how much each character and staff on sets would have understood the plot,and kudos to director for bringing out performances from the cast irrespective of degree and extent of their comprehension towards character. I shall say nicely done.., i have especially no words for brilliant performance by Mahesh Manjarekar in such a small but probably his best role.Ronit Roy is such a good but wasted actor.., recently saw "udaan", he shines there too. Once upon a time a Hindi movie freak,I have noticed that since over 6 years now, i am not able to comfortably see the so predictable and almost repetitive or non amusing Hindi cinema.since Mukul S an-and died and Rajiv rai stopped making films, as if there is nothing to see now, except Rajkumar santoshi,Anurag kashyap,a few genuines by RGV, & handful of other makers who pop-up with some good cinema in between:Most of the time we are made to eat the sheer non or half talented arrogant and self propagandizing work of likes of Aamir khan,Karen johar, etc. in the name of good cinema.

Nice to see more players are coming up to "do their own thing".
