Trivia

Virti was a little scared, and the retakes made her all the more nervous. Naseer-sir came as a savior, he picked up a pencil and asked Tanu to place it between her lips and under her tongue and repeat those dialogues loudly for some time. Magic happened, and in one take all the lines came out perfectly. See more »

Molecule Review: Hope Aur Hum (6 Stars)
18 September 2018 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

If Sudip Bandyopadhyay's Hope Aur Hum was any more simple, I would be looking at a plain piece of paper for 100 minutes. That is the type of calmness and whiteness that the makers concoct in this family drama that talks about aging in general. Naseeruddin Shah plays a grandfather who is in love and respect with his WWII-era German photocopying machine so much that it is housed in a room big enough to accommodate an Indian politician's ego. The rest of the family has a problem with it is not something that he pays attention to unless he realizes one day that old is not always gold. What prevents Hope Aur Hum from becoming dull with this lackluster story arc is the other characters played with finesse by Sonali Kulkarni and Naveen Kasturia to name a few. Ignore the acting performances of the two kid artistes and you will complete watching this film in a much more light mood. It has some great conversations that you can relate with and that will put a smile on our face. Hope Aur Hum is a bonafide feel good movie and one that might stay with you for a few days. Which is, let's agree, not very rare in the Hindi indie scene.
