Thumbs Up For Sudhir Mishra!!
10 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Yeh Saali Zindagi' is a restless satire of the underskirts of Delhi,full of dilemma and heart With entertaining narration.

Irfan Khan shows his acting skills once again by effortlessly portraying the emotions and confusions of a witty(at the same time heard-hearted) man with oceanly passion for a girl,whom he consider the women of his life.

Aditi Rao Hydari (of Delhi 6 fame)introduces us to her sensual and womanly side in this dark movie and is brilliant and eye-catching.

Arunodoy Singh as a tough,but cool and love-making man showers the taste of aspirations and wrong calculations.

Chitrangda Singh excels as a fighting temptation and is full of feminine energy.

Director Sudhir Mishra explores the not-so-smooth side of the north,their culture and enties love n crime into a single entity.

Film uses a lot of profane language and swear words and has about 7 steamy scenes;the reason the film being rated 'A'.

Music by Nishat khan(a well renowned sitar player) is quite good and mast.The songs like Dil Dar-Ba-Dar n Ishq Tere Jalwe is quite soothing to the rustic darkness of the movie.

Verdict:In a whole the film will keep you entertained and will reveal the darker side of this life as in previous films of t director,in a darker way. So, Check out this movie and get entertained.Ma rating:8.5/10
