A Pathetic attempt at Modernity!
18 March 2009 | by (Kolkata, India) – See all my reviews

The director is confused-- what does he want to do? Does he want to make a bold movie with some lewd one-liners and steamy situations; Or a touching story of three girls on the edge of desperation; Or an art film with slow-mo conversations and occasional, irritating psychedelic freeze-frames!

The movie is as confused as a Shilajit music video (and Shilajit's music bringing up the rear with lines like 'Bishh diye Bhat mekhe khai' {I take poison with rice})but at least in the videos, this ambiguity works, unlike they do in this movie! So Rii looks hot with her clothes on, and her every minute change of clothes does nothing much to steam up the movie, or the every hour partner-change either! Mallika in that restrained role with a taxi-driver doesn't really get the viewer's sympathy! Same fate awaits the whole transsexual angle!

It's time "bold" directors should learn that being 'radical' doesn't involve making inane movies with sexual connotations! Bishh is all about a good plot possibility laid to waste by a director who's (probably) too ashamed to even let his full name known: all gimmicks (including the directors name-change from Kaushik Mukherjee to Q)come to nothing if you don't have a good script, brother!
