No Need For Via, Make A U-Turn and Watch Something Else
4 February 2009 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

'Via Darjeeling' is pretty much a much ado about nothing kind of film. In the end one does feel that they have wasted about two hours watching a movie that left way too much to be desired. True, the film is different from the usual Bollywood flick but some filmmakers seem to forgot that different does not necessarily equal good and 'Via Darjeeling' is pretentious to say the least. Basically, it's about a group of friends telling different perspectives of one story. That's it. On the technical side, the songs are good. The lyrics of some of the songs are especially great. Cinematography is monotonous and the sound effect is quite poor. The bad writing does not give enough scope for some of the actors. Kay Kay Menon delivers the best performance of the lot, followed by Vinay Pathak. Sonali Kulkarni and Simone Singh look ravishing. Kulkarni is good in many scene, bad in one scene and average otherwise. Parvin Dabas is adequate. Sandhya Mridul, Prashant Naryananan and Rajat Kapoor are alright. I was surprised that such a cast of talented actors chose to be in this movie. After all, they are the reason I decided to see it and I couldn't seem to figure it out. Were they doing a favour or did they really see something in the script?
