Trivia

Director Bejoy Nambiar opted for 'Live Sound Sync' for many scenes to maintain the realism in many scenes. This was a challenge for the actors as they would have to remember the dialogues because the whole scene would have to be re- shot if they made a mistake. However in the Tamil version, Vikram's portion was not 'live sound' and was just dubbed. See more »

Goofs

The Ghani family is shown to be belonging to the Shi'ite stream of Islam. When the scion of the Ghani clan, Jahanzeb, is getting married to Noor, the Imam is reciting Su'rah Fateha. When the recital concludes, all the people present say "Ameen" in unison. However, in the Shi'ite stream, the conclusion of Su'rah Fateha elicits the response of "Alhamdulillahi Rab-il-Aalaameen" and not "Ameen". See more »

Well-Made & Well-Acted!
9 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Bejoy Nambiar's 'David' is a Well-Made & Well-Acted Film, that ranks amongst the better films from 2013. It has strong merits, but, its far from astonishing.

'David' Synopsis: The lives of three different men named David are about to take a step which is going to change their lives forever.

'David' narrates three stories efficiently. Nambiar is an amazing visionary & he directs the film spell-bindingly. He breaks free & walks away with a film that's genuinely engaging. Nambiar & Natasha Sahgal's Screenplay, on the other-hand, is gripping. But, the second-hour is stretched & dragged. It definitely could've been sharper & more powerful. Cinematography is top-class. Editing is perfect. The Music is in sync with the film's mood.

Performance-Wise: Neil Nitin Mukesh is splendid. Also, he carries off the part with a lot of style. Vikram is over-rated in here. Vinay Virmani surprises with a power-packed performance. He's excellent. Tabu is outstanding, as usual. Isha Sharvani is wonderfully under-stated. Nassar is in command after a long time. The veteran is superb. Lara Dutta is efficient. Monica Dogra is fabulous. Rohini Hattangadi is competent. Sheetal Menon is first-rate. Saurabh Shukla is lovable. Ajinkya Dev is excellent.

On the whole, 'David' is a fearless film.
