Decaying moral values
20 October 2011 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Its tight rope walking when the trailblazing headlines are to be the backbone of a movie. For starters no matter which side you decide to glorify, the rivals will mercilessly hound you with the sole objective of crucification. Not to mention, commercially that section of audience base does not translate into box-office collections, worse spread negative publicity. But if the media succeeds in getting it trapped in an imbroglio, you have hit the jackpot mate.

Ramgopal Varma orchestrates his story with great flair. Notably he highlights the defining moment when the raging bull within momentarily exercises supremacy, chess played by lawyers on the judicial game board and finally an underlying love story that is devoid of any saccharin coats. But what distinguishes the film even more are the performances of the principals. Deepak Dobriyal is riveting, will Bollywood now take notice of this powerhouse of talent? Mahie Gill makes her way into RGV camp and her potential is well utilised. If I may dare say, after Urmila here is a true successor for RGV camp. Zakir Hussain as always impresses as the "fool me not" Inspector.

The proceeding are slick and the pace rapid. There was immense scope for the plot to pan out a howdunnit in "Johnny Gaddar" style. And yes thankfully RGV doesn't pay tribute to "Saw" series though the subject had enough potential.

There is a fine line between technical excellence and showing-off technical excellence. The background score and cinematography undoubtedly falls into the latter category. Toning down would help immensely.

And yes, the ode to "Rangeela" song is awesome. Likewise its "Company" in the scene where Mahie Gill wears shades in the police station.

PS: A better title was warranted, seriously.
