A single mother trying to rekindle her relationship with her teenage son, a failed writer trying to revive his creativity and a group of friends trying to revive an unexpected situation form the crust of the film. This film is an introspective take on life the way it is. It's about communication issues, creative obsession & self destructive motives. Written by
Indie in India is growing. They might not have set BO on fire but have definitely made a mark for themselves. Innuendo is one such indie effort. Made on a paltry budget, it successfully converted some of the handicaps into an advantage. Arvind Kamath along with a talented team made a movie that delivers well. One needs a vision to make a good film, budget is secondary.
The story of Innuendo revolves around three subplots a mother trying to come close to her son, a writer and his imagination and a bunch of friends celebrating. The first subplot comes out very strongly and undoubtedly is the strong point of the film. The thirst subplot is the weak link. Though three stories seemed to be pretty insulated from each other, one can reason the connect easily. From script point of view, it's an achievement of some sort. Innuendo literally means an insinuation about a person or thing or incident. By the time credits roll, you realize how nicely title reflects the content of the movie. Usage of metaphors is equally laudable.
Performances are pretty decent. However like most of the indies, in some scenes one might find actors trying to act too hard. It might be a little turnoff though. But overall, the interpretation of characters comes out well on screen. Camera-work is good. Music is a little overdone, in my humble opinion. Editing is very crisp. Overall, technically and from performance point of view, it's pretty decent. Direction is really good. Execution of some scenes is studio quality.
It's not path breaking movie or something that will change the world. However, it's a strong and honest effort.
