A movie to remember for long time, just like a photograph
3 June 2019 | by rahulburangiSee all my reviews

This is one of the few movies which will be with me for a loooong time. This movie leaves you speechless when it comes to all the sections of it whether it is story arc, acting by the person who has least amount of screen time, background music, use of Mumbai locations which are unseen by many non Mumbai people and use of silence when required. Many people will complain about the pace of the movie, it is may be because they are so much habituated to movies of so called super stars, so called imported actresses who can't even speak hindi, item numbers, stupid & unnecessary songs, exotic locations, that they can't find beauty in simplicity of this movie. If you talk about the pace of the film my defence would be it is just like old & matured wine which do not give you kick in first sip but you have to feel it, give it time to grab you very slooowly. If you respect it then it will give you magical moments which will be with you for very long time. The best part of the movie is its simplicity in terms of storyline & acting. Characters of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra are written/played so well, so imagine them to be someone next door to you. Ritesh Batra is once again able to do a good movie just like The Lunchbox. Hat's off to you guys.
