Film Review – Black – B, L, A, C, K

Yesterday, I saw the film ‘Black’. I have always been a fan of Sanjay Leela Bansali from ‘Hum Dile De Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Devdas’. His direction, the way of portraying the characters, the presentation, the music, the colours…
The three strong characters, Michelle as a girl and as a woman and the teacher portrayed in the shades of black. The frustration of the young girl whose life is always full of darkness…She is blind, deaf and dumb… (Helen Keller??? Ahem.. I dono…) She founds herself a path through that blackness… And with the help of the teacher, she finally becomes a graduate! The man God she finds in that teacher, who maker her feel the meaning of words and reactions, meaning of mother, father, and finally a woman herself…She smells the beauty of life, the success of failure, determination, will power, emotions of love and trust, and the pain of darkness…Also portrayed is the Alzheimer’s disease of the teacher as the film moves towards the climax, where he fails to memorize all the small things. It’s the same state as the small girl, but the only difference is, even in the light, we find ourselves in dark… Man is really nothing without memories though he has all the senses…
The script seems fast in the beginning when we fail to understand how the teacher gets through the small child’s heart. There are no songs in the film and the background music is superb. Overall it is a worth-watch film.

Film Review – Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna

Well.. Yesterday watched the film, but Ididnt find the film so bad and sucking…
The film was slow and dragging Ii agree, but the story theme is acceptable… atleast outside india and among the higher societies of india itself.. in the fast pacing run of our life, its hard to work out a marriage and when the peopl e at both sides cant take or adjust beyond a limit, this happens…. then what does the increasing number of divorce says??? in india mayb, ppl adjust more and live like that just to make their families happy.. they all mayb happy, but to how much extent is the contentment.. no one speaks out abt it…..
In this film too everyone is happy at times.. all the characters are good.. thinking on the indian old style, we can think like dev and rhea cud have adjusted a bit more, by rhea adjusting a bit more(as kirron kher says) or rishi and maya cud also have lived more happily, if they adjusted a bit more by finding out the others needs… but is this what one really wants of his/her own??? leave the family, society and ppl .. just the individuals….why does life turns out to be just a mere adjustment with some friend or known person??

Film Review – Mitr – my friend

Today, me down with small fever. So at home now. Being at home alone, i can realize the loneliness and the refuge one gets from internet at that time. Some days back, had seen the film ‘mitr’ which portrayed the worries of a married woman living in US. She remains at home whole day cookin and cleaning the house all alone, with no one to even talk to. Her expectations from her husband and daughter and when they both could not decrease her loneliness because of their own issues, she finds solace in an online friend, who at the end turns out to be none other than her husband! The film carries a strange remark-sometimes it gives us a different perspective when we talk to strangers. I don’t know how much this is true but it makes me happy when i talk to online people,to know that people listens……..
