Not a Love Story leaves you Stunned.........
23 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

RGV comes again with another Good Movie.as everyone knows that its based on a real story and the way it is shot gives it very realistic look.the cinematography is brilliant but at first you will find it a little weird.The sound design is perfect.The first half is about murder and the second half is about police investigation.The story is about a girl who have big dream to be an actress,how she comes to Mumbai and how something that brutal happens in a city like Mumbai.the Movie is shot in the same building where actual murder was occurred.the actress Mahi Gill and Deepak Dobriyal both have done Mindblowing job. another thing,this movie is not at all for all those mas-ala and mainstream movie lovers. there are some brilliant symbolic scenes like the fish in the fish tank and how the building looks normal from the outside.the song Rangeela re will give you goosebumps if you can feel it specially the line"Itne Chehro me Apne Chehro Ki Pehchan to ho,bade bade Naamo Mai Apna Bhi Namonishan to ho"cause it suits so well to the situation. on the whole if you have understanding for such kind of cinema then its a worth watch.........
