Engaging Drama, Which Somehow Almost Prevents Itself From Being Monotonous. ♦ 78%
6 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Anupam Kher & Urmila Matondkar totally pull their respective characters together. It is because of them, accompanied by a good plot, that I rate it a 7.8/10.

Directly getting to the point in less than 10 minutes keeps the viewer hooked on to what might be the cause of happenings in the screen. A sense of suspense grows and even though the screenplay feeds us constantly, another revelation towards the end does make sense. The courtroom drama at the end is worth a watch.

What the makers fail here is to keep away from boring sequences wherein the characters are speaking/enacting something, while the actual plot is narrated. It does turn off the experience. Dialogs are just fine, while the character building is very good. Not going astray, Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Maara is a engaging watch.

BOTTOM LINE: Cinema aficionados & critic will love it alike. Once again, great performances, I have to mention.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity/Nudity/Sex: No | Violence: Mediocre | Gore: No | Smoking: Very Mild | Alcohol/Drugs: No
