An adaptation of William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus set in contemporary New Delhi. The Hungry is a contemporary retelling of Shakespearian tragedy Titus Andronicus, set in the extravagant surroundings of an Indian wedding whilst exploring the role of the patriarch and corruption in Indian politics and big business.
The Hungry is a Naseeruddin Shah acting masterclass!
"Revenge is a dish best served cold". this proverb perfectly describes The Hungry, a violent drama based on the Shakespearian tragedy Titus Andronicus.
Set in contemporary India somewhere on the outskirts of Delhi, it is a tale of two families - the Ahujas led by patriarch Tathagat (Naseer who steals every scene he is in) and the Joshis led by Tulsi (Tisca Chopra, relishing the role tailormade for her). The story which plays out over a couple of days around a wedding between Tathagat Ahuja's son and Tulsi grips you early on with a brutal murder within the first 10 minutes into the film. Terrific acting overall supported well by Neeraj Kabi, Sayoni Gupta, Antoni Aakeel.
Technically it is great with the editing and the pacing almost perfect. Director Bornila does a swell job and this movie is not a bad time to pass 1.5 hours.
