Prompted me to chip in after the ROCK ON!! "euphoria". A film I saw at the at Osians in 2003. A film made way-back ..an underground fav. Though a envy worthy status for a film to be loved and sought after even in it's unreleased state. it's been long and it needs to be out in the open. What if we never got to watch Fight Club or Old Boy ever and just were privy to the downsized Indian Censor friendly Sanjay Gupta's Zinda and what if the only Fight Club I knew was Vicky Malhotra or Chopra or whatever's Zayed Khan starrer Fuzz Club? I would dread it if censors all over the world kept a film in limbo for their own immaturity and stunted growth process.
And now that it's cleared what are the producers upto? Is it a medical product to have an expiry. Will it lose it's value?
For me Paanch still looks fresh and dark/morbid/stark/gritty and this is the movie which patented Anurag Kashyap's neon fetish. When the first poster of Alwyn Kalicharan was released in the TOI some years back ..it read "This Winter Think Neon"
15 fps shots...time transitions.....great music....VIJAY MAURYA is awesome....as usually towering over the expected SHOW STEALERS....KK and Aditya Srivastav......who are GREAT anyways....the problem is they are so good....you know they are gonna blow you...so you expect it....awesome music......Abbas Tyrewala's legendary "TAMAS" lyrics...they still manage to haunt me......
IT'S ABOUT ROCK .and there is ROCK ..they dope....they swear they scratch armpits .they want a better life .Luke wants to be recognized ever worshiped and music is a let out a let out for angst/love/lust/greed and unfulfilled dreams and not just a Sunday relief in their plush Malabar Hill penthouse.
A film which gives me the choice to explore or feel for the lesser evil than the GOOD v/s BAD routine or is PAANCH about EVIL v/s BAD ASS EVIL. How often do we have that on screen?
ONE OF THE BEST TITLE SEQUENCE....ONE WHICH YOU WILL REMEMBER....AFTER SEVEN WHICH HAD A SIMILAR GRUNGY FEEL TO IT.....I LOVED THIS ONE.....PLUS THE CITY CAPTURED IN IT'S PSYCHEDELIC GLORY.
Paanch needs a wider platform to be seen ..to be loved/hated/criticized/debated on.
