Good Night Good Morning is a black and white, split-screen, conversation film about two strangers sharing an all-night phone call on New Year's night in New York City. Writer-Director Sudhish Kamath tries to discover good old fashioned love and romance in a technology-driven mobile world as the boy driving from New York to Philadelphia with buddies after a wild night out of drinking, calls the enigmatic girl alone in her hotel after a brief encounter at the bar. An all-night phone call becomes a surreal, dream-like experience especially when the limited validity of the adventure gives you the freedom to be who you want to be. Anonymity could be comforting and such a situation could lead to an unlikely romance. Or something like it. Written by Anonymous

Sudhish Kamath has come a long way from TFLW, he makes a perfect Woody Allenish film that stands out !!!
2 January 2012 | by turiyaomprakashSee all my reviews

GNGM is a film of its kind, if Woody Allen had wanted to make a conversational film based on 2 American's of Indian origin... It would look like Good Night|Good morning!(well almost)

Gngm is a conversational film made in black and white and the entire movie is split screen, the film is about 2 strangers who talk to each other on the new year's eve and end up falling in love(almost again). Given the fact that the whole film has just 2 locales and is split screen dialogs are a very important thing, each word in the film is quite brilliantly written and yes they touch the chord quite easily. The screenplay(I happened to see the uncut version) is quite nice in fact it is phenomenal!

If at all you are wondering what the plot of a film about 2 strangers talking to one another and that too on a phone , the answer is quite simple-the plot is in you. It is about the demons in you that curtail you from being decisive about life, romance and most importantly... relationships. Turiya Omprakash(played by Manu Narayan) and Moira(Seema Rahmani) are 2 strangers who meet up in a bar at NY and begin a telephonic conversation and end up entering into 2009 talking to each other, the plot is quite simple but the film is quite loaded! There are just 2 locations one the hotel room from which Moira speaks from and the car from which Turiya speaks from, Turiya is accompanied by 3 of his friends JC(Raja Sen), Hussein(Vasanth Santosham) and Moira is all lonely. There is just one thing in common between the 2 they are both heart broken and how this one thing brings out the monsters within them is what the film is all about.

Applauds Shilpa Rathnam and Sudhish Kamath for writing such a brilliant screenplay, in the uncut version there is a mention about the past relationships performed beautifully well... I swear I laughed my ass out for the KKHH spoof. Coming to the performances Seema and Manu have done a brilliant job and special mention to Seema. Manu does a neat job as well, the only problem I find in the casting is that Raja Sen is a little wasted he could have been given more dialogs. Vasanth Santhosham does a great job too. The other problem lies with Seema's make up in the boy meets girl scene, where the hair style remotely suits her. Besides that she is perfect.

Coming to the locations, there is a sequence about Moira's broken relationship, according to the film it is supposed to be taking place in the USA but the it looks obvious that they have been shot in Chennai. There is a scene where Moira attempts suicide and that too looks obvious that it has been shot in a beach near Chennai. Apart from these small issues the film is phenomenal, amazing and a standing ovation to the entire team. It is the best thing that could happen to Indian Indie cinema after Little Zizou(2008)!! Sudhish Kamath has come a long way from TFLW, he makes a perfect Woody Allenish film that stands out !!! I am just hoping that someone picks it up for theatrical release.

My rating for GNGM: 9.3/10!!!!!!!!!! - Sai Prasad Narendran
