Shades of Mediocrity.
25 January 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I once read somewhere, where, regretfully I am unable to recall at this moment, that for a businessman, even honesty is a business proposition. Now there might be some error in syntactic terms, but the semantics and the idea casually sprung remains more or less unaltered from that of the original. Now, one might accuse me of wasting the diligent Review Readers time with trifling sentences which, one might argue has not much to do with the Film under scrutiny; I assure you that it is not the case, On the contrary, when one craftily replaces the word 'businessman' with say a 'pseudo intellectual' and honesty with 'art' It pretty much is a summation of the filmmaker's effort. Baudelaire, in his preface to Les Fleur du Mal had bragged most seriously of teaching anyone, regardless of his knowledge of Tragedies, and in as few as 10 lessons, the art of crafting, rather manufacturing Tragedies. What the Director does here is that he imitates (not steals) certain elements from Films made by filmmakers very much unlike Mr Q and uses those elements as a formula to manufacture a Film, very much unlike the Films made by the latter class, which is artistically barren and morally futile and thus he can, as ascertained by Eliot, without fear or doubt, can be called- an Immature artist. The Film in question speaks not out of an urgency to deliver a social or moral message but speaks for the sake of speaking, to showcase the intellectual capacity behind the film which I am afraid exists in a haphazard and infinitesimal form. Now to everyone who has come hither to find a good film, I'd suggest you most humbly to turn back and rather see either McQueen's 'Shame' or Mrinal Sen's 'Bhuvan Shome' or both, which shall invariably quench ones intellectual thirst of understanding and both of which are artistic films of the very highest quality made by two very intelligent men.
