Dark subject made to glow with brilliant direction and acting.
What can you expect from a story about an autistic girl in love with a deaf and dumb boy? Serious tearjerker, i suppose. But this movie is not your regular Hindi movie melodrama.
Anurag Basu has used a la Charlie Chaplin, slap stick comedy to brilliant effect in depicting a rather serious subject. The movie is so smartly made that one does not feel that the void of its main protagonist being a mute. The movie is shot beautifully in Darjeeling and Kolkata. A visual treat.
The acting by Ranbir is outstanding. Talking with his expressions throughout the movie. Priyanka's role as an autistic girl is a revelation. she deserves rich praise as well. Ileana is a surprise package, looking so stunningly beautiful in Bengali attire with bright cotton saris.
Pritam's music in the movie is also very fresh and apt for the script. Songs are simple but effective.
The only drawback, if you nitpick, might be the fact that Anurag Basu tried too hard to make it into a suspense thriller, with story moving back and forth in time.
Overall an excellent movie for people who dare to watch good cinema.
