A story based in a land where anything goes - law is farcical, egos larger than life-size and respect supreme. "Antardwand" has a realistic take on the practise of groom abduction. Parallel cinema has never been so good.
Vinay Pathak and Akhilendra Mishra are the only recognisable faces whilst rest of the star cast comprises of practically new faces. Akhilendra Mishra reprises the usual character he normally does but for those who are expecting a funny bone from Vinay Pathak, be warned. He is serious as any patriarch can be, proving he is damn good at what he envelopes. Raj Singh Chaudhary as Raghu Veer and Swati Sen as Janki deliver great performances. Himanshi as Sia represents urban bred girlfriend whose segment is narrated in flashbacks.
The entire team of "Antardwand" deserve to be applauded for a brave attempt.
PS: Not for weak hearted, Strong gut warranted. And yes - not only you will forget all the matrimonial jokes but feel guilty as well.
