User Reviews

Well if you have emotions, October will take you for a ride...
17 April 2018 | by vpvickytheplayboySee all my reviews

Yes if you have heard the public reviews, the movie is not for everyone.You need to have patience to feel October.The director has not centered the movie around love but you are in love when the story hits you for real.From no melodious songs to no 'all good in the end' ending the movie stands apart from the league of Bollywood romantic movies.Bollywood has a neck for over fantasizing a simple story with some 'not-needed' overacting or 'un-meaningfull' dialogues which have no connection with real world to lay emphasis on the actors and present them as an example to the world but Shoojit Sircar is brave enough to bring you the reality the way it is- SIMPLE BUT STRONG.The movie as the name suggests depicts the season October which brings down the heat to cool thus changing our lives in many ways which we hardly notice.The movie depicts the real world where people are strongly connected but hardly notice others but what if there is a change.October displays an emotional tale when a man completely turns his life around a girl who hardly even existed in his life but what he learns from the experience is sure to leave a big impact on both your heart & brain.And to compliment your efforts to connect with the story there are some amazing performances from Varun Dhawan,Gitanjali Rao & Banita Sandhu. There are no negatives that might push you away from the movie,the more you watch the more you connect.Some movies are a mirror to our real world and October is definitely top on that list.The only thing which dis-satisfies you is the short duration of 2 hours because a kid inside you would love to watch more of it...
