Bhram - An engrossing fare
21 May 2008 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Bhram came as a complete surprise..very pleasant one. It is an extremely well made film not much into exaggerated dramatics, yet very poignant new and fresh. It was like seeing a Hindi film but made by a westerner, since treatment and approach was not hackneyed.Quite a first from Bollywood.

Beautiful visuals, evolved sentiments, real characters and technically finely honed effort. The best part is it can be a repeat watch since its not a thriller of a whodunit kind where once you know the end, the plot is revealed.It is more a drama of relationships and the twists and turns of fate. So on a repeat watch lots that one misses out while following the story the first time can be now focused the shot takings,use of tones, subtleties etc.Mature is the one word that comes to mind on seeing it.No age old traditional scenes. Innovative.Wish there were more films like this from India.

Jaane Kyun by Sonu Nigam was sensuously picturised but what I liked best was the story being told in the song. A girl who hated men now decides to give herself willingly to her man, and make the first move. It was so subtle..without dialogues or any underlining. Just her flashback in the song. Good job.

And the climax was simply awesomely shot with a great suaveness.Liked the songs as they fitted well in the mood. Not a single song was in lip sync.All background scores.I noticed this on second viewing.

Minus points..although the cast performed great, but had Dino been replaced by an Arjun rampal or even Akshaye Khanna the film would have been taken more seriously.Cinematography could have been better.

Milind was fantastic, also Dino and so was new girl Sheetal menon and Simone Singh.

Over all a good film which somehow makes a deep dent and stays with you. Once the dust settles, Bhram I think will be counted as one of the best of 2008 and among the best in the dark genre along with 'Being Cyrus'.
