Well done.
2 February 2003 | by e-madSee all my reviews

Road is - thankfully - a departure from the Indian cinema norm. No guy meets girl, parents disapprove, 15,000 songs, good guy bad guy mumbo jumbo. A simple story, brilliant acting, and great cinematography.

In a nutshell, a guy (Vivek Oberoi) and girl (Antara Mali) are in love and on the run. Pretty Bollywood so far. But this is until they run across a wanderer (Manoj Bajpai) in the deserts of Rajasthan. The rest I leave up to you to watch.

The only point I wanted to reinforce was Vivek Oberoi. He made his debut in Company, and has risen through the ranks, straight to numero uno. As always, he is outstanding. Do not be surprised if he leaves the Hrithiks and the Arjun Rampals in his dust. Keep your eyes on this one.

Manoj Bajpai - one of my personal favorites - was no less then his "good guy" counterpart. He was superlative in Satya (my all time favorite movie), and has a string of other successes under his belt. Once again in Road, Bajpai is at his best.

The girl. One word. Hot.

This is a Ram Gopal Varma movie. He also made Satya and Comapany. Enough said. I think I like this man.

By and large, Road was superb. Great songs, an awesome soundtrack, and flawless acting all make for one of the better movies released in Indian cinemas of late. Enjoy!
