Cinematic Brilliance
1 March 2020 | by AnotherMovieFreakSee all my reviews

Once in a while, a director decides to create a movie which breaks social norms. We have no right to abuse someone mentally or physically, even if it is just a single episode and it's better to part ways. First of all thanks to Anubhav sinha for creating such a flawless movie. The movie is well written and well directed. Every dialogues are meaningful. The beautiful part of the story is, there are too many stories weaved perfectly into a frame,which could have gone easily wrong. Each sub stories are beautiful in their own ways. Such brilliance is rare. Coming to performances, Taapsee excelled again. It's nothing new for her. She is such a brilliant performer. Pavail gulati was perfect in his own ways. Kumud mishra, a father with a lion heart; Ratna Pathak, a mother worried about society; A regular brother ; A socially suppressed mother in law; A lawyer fighting injustice from within her family; Dia Mirza ,a single mother with a will of her own; Geetika Vidya , a maid who just wanted to be a house wife; Manav Kaul, a bully. All these characters were flawed, yet so beautiful and perfectly portrayed. This movie is about performance and a strong story with a great message.
