More than just time-pass
27 March 2006 | by ChitradurgaSee all my reviews

Calcutta Mail deserves a look. The story line, casting, and cinematography are well above-average for a Bollywood film. Anil Kapoor fills the role of the anguished father well; Sayaji Shinde makes a very credible nearly-out-of-control serial killer (he's had some practice playing such a character); and Rani Mukherjee is a delight. Although, as another reviewer has noted, the songs are a little disappointing, "Yeh Saheb Ajeeb Hai" is well worth a look, perhaps repeatedly. In particular, the choreography of "Yeh Saheb Ajeeb Hai" is fresh, fun, and Rani Mukherjee's on-screen energy definitely carries that scene. It's a pleasant change from the 20s-something NRI market focus of many recent Hindi movies.
