An artistic journey to an unexpected romance..
21 March 2019 | by abhishekpandey1102See all my reviews

Ritesh Batra('Lunchbox') has done it again. This movie is about the budding romantic relationship between characters of two completely different backgrounds and the director is successful in capturing the nervousness, the newness and the hesitance of a growing relationship. The film has little dialogue, similar to real life situations like these, and focuses on capturing gestures. Nawazuddin has encapsulated the essence of a common man in a plain, subtle way like he always wanted to on-screen, and Sanya, is absolutely amazing in her calm, composed and measured performance of Miloni. Farrukh Jaffer as Dadi really binds the whole movie, and gives us the light-hearted laughs that any romantic story should have. Not to give anything away, a lot of moments are open to interpretation, including the ending which gives a feeling that you are listening to a love story, and you will be able to relate with most of these moments. It captures the essence of Mumbai, which is always refreshing, and reflects on the cringe of class and color which is kind of inherent in our society. Go watch it, probably with your mom, she'll love it.
