On the whole, 'Waiting' is a well-made film. Do Watch!
10 June 2016 | by suhasbhosale-03569See all my reviews

Two people, waiting...... This is an apt one-line description of a film about life, lasting love and impending loss which explores a zone Bollywood doesn't bother with. Which is itself so refreshing that you want to champion the attempt, as well some of the outcome, even if it doesn't hit all the marks, all the way. Anu Menon's Diretion is simplistic, but effective. She has handled the film well. Cinematography & Editing are fine. Music by Mikey McCleary is lovely.

Performance-Wise: Naseeruddin Shah underplays his part & remains restrained throughout. Kalki is the star of the show. She's simply terrific, enacting a rather difficult, with flourish. Rajat Kapoor is brilliant in a brief role. Arjun Mathur & Suhasini Maniratnam lend good support.

On the whole, 'Waiting' is a well-made film. Do Watch!
