Ode to Hrishida/ Basu Chatterjee
29 April 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Well to start with, let me state that the title of the movie has no relevance to the plot whatsoever. Its completely misleading.

Performances::

In terms of performance Rahul Agarwal (actor/director), gets into the skin of the character. The delivery and accent will make you instantly connect with Devki Nandan Tripathi. Next in line is the performance of Om Puri who as usual is spot-on. He get a meaty role and delivers with utmost perfection. I haven't watched Narayani Shashtri on telly but did find her performance in the movie commendable. Anant Mahadevan was okay'ish. Item number by Shweta Salve was good.

Coming to the other side of the coin. To start with Ravi Kissen makes over-the-top attempt to connive us with his acting skills as Madan Khachak. Falls flat. Neena Gupta comes across extremely artificial, just don't ask me why. Paresh Rawal presence is not justified in the movie. Neeraj Vora wasn't required.

There are many good points about the movie. What I particularly liked is the feel of Hrishida and Basu Chatterjee touch in it. The common man, simplicity - if you know what I mean. "Main Meri Patni Aur Woh" was the last time I felt similar about it. The one-liners deserve a special mention as they have adequate dose of clean humour. Substantial characters are introduced into the plot, sadly they do not fleshed out adequately (or maybe got chopped on the editing table).

Cinematorgraphy is good. The authentic feel of the village deserves a special mention. The songs are pleasant. Remo's title track lingers on for a while. And lastly the direction is extremely good, considering that its wielded by a first-timer. Has enough potential to mature into continuing the lineage of Hrishida and Basu Chatterjee genre of movies.
