Surreal Mockumentary
8 April 2017 | by yatinsurpurSee all my reviews

For those who don't know about this new genre, a mockumentary is a good mix of scripted/fiction based content and documentary format. I saw AUTOHEAD at MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2016, when I saw this film I was blown away with this experience as before this film I had not seen any mockumentary film I had seen a mockumentary as a web-series on YouTube but not as a film. As the screening that I attended was a premier and so on the Director & Actor were present for the Q&A session post the film, so when the film got over and I saw the lead actor Deepak Sampat in front of me I could not believe that he is the same person who played Narayan as the experience of watching this mockumentary was so surreal that I somehow forgot that it was a scripted content. As this is one of the indie films I must say that the Director, camera & sound team was so in sync with each other that they somehow convinced me that it is a documentary and everything that I saw see is real for me that whole experience is just so Surreal that I think AUTOHEAD was one of the best experiments of last year's indie films. While writing this review I made sure that I don't mention any spoilers, cause I want people to just experience this film as it is.
