Its really unfortunate to see a film being valued solely on the basis
of its box office performance rather than its merit in India.Its
because of this thing that useless films like ready ,force or Bodyguard
rake in the moolah while films like Mod just fade in the pages of time.
Now I'm not saying that Mod is a fantastic film but definitely way
better than the useless films mentioned above.
Ayesha Takia runs a watch repair shop in a south Indian hill station where Rannvijay Singh comes everyday to get his watch repaired.He introduces himself as her classmate in school.As expected,Love blossoms but there comes a turn when Takia begins to doubt Singh as to who he is.Then what happens??watch the film. First the positive positive things-
With plastic emotions reigning in the movies today,this one offers a welcome break.There are some splendid tender moments between Takia & Singh & even Takia & Yadav.(e.g. she won't let Yadav enter home drunk but would serve him tea in the morning).The tuning between Takia & Tanve Azmi is very heart warming.The characters are close to life & seem real.
The music is nothing to cheer about but the song "Tu hi Tu" makes a fine hearing.The top notch Cinematography makes this small town Down south India a character in the film & adds to cinematic value & experience.
Now some negatives-The film plunges downwards once the MOD(turn-which in this case means twist) is revealed.The film gets monotonous in 2nd half & drags.Nagesh seems to lose the plot & the film's grip on the viewer looses.The choice of lead(Rannvijay) could have been better.Despite his best efforts,he fails to pull off a complex character.While Takia shines in her role,Rannvijay 's performance leaves a lot to be desired.The performance of both Azmi & Yadav is fabulous.
Despite all these flaws,Mod isn't completely unwatchable.It has its moments with Nagesh getting back to what he really stands for.The signs are positive & maybe,we'll see a Dor or an Iqbal soon!!
Most times we watch movies without any inner feeling or values, but this one is definitely a worth who loves to go into supernatural and come to real life., the picturization is perfectly done with all factors attached. sometimes life's real values comes from unknown !!! hence understanding them at the correct time is foremost which is shown at the end . The viewpoint is more important because the worth of life and its related effects gives the motivation that everything is not lost and still there is something in it which is depicted very well., i wish this is the essential factor to live a happy life. hence all those who are reading this review watch this movie and enjoy life with a meaningful purpose.
There r few film makers in India whose portrayal of characters r very deep and touches ur heart nagesh is one of them ....this story is about a girl from a village down south of India who runs a watch repair shop ,very independent in life with a caring father and sisterinlaw around and how her life takes a turn(mod) one day when she gets to meet a man ringing the bell infront of her house...beautifully depicted characters one such is her father's and a neighbour who loves her ...and her father's evening concerts(kishori mahal)....at the first place u ll fall in love with cinematography....background score could have been better overall this is another masterpiece by nageshkukunoor after aashayein and iqbal

'Sweet & Cute'. The first words that comes to ones mind after watching the movie. A good watch in the medium budget movies produced in India. Ayesha looks beautiful as always. I think its Rannvijay's first movie as a solo & he acted good coming out of the sphere of MTV reality shows. Movie is filmed in beautiful & scenic Niligiris. Music is not that great & will not appeal directly to your mind but the guitar play is soothing in almost all songs. The storyline losses its grip at some places & gives you feeling that its all predictable but the end of the movie is different than what one expect from the mentality created by watching a series of bollywood movies where the end is always where everything goes perfectly fine like the fairy tales. However, my sincere request to director that the people watching the movie are not a bunch of idiots & you are not making a typical shahrukh khan movie where you try to show the leads in school 10 years younger & that will go smoothly through the eyes of the people watching the movie. Please replace them with junior artists,people will still understand that what you are referring to instead of dressing the grownups in school dress. At last, I will not say its a great movie but i think good for one time watch.
