Watched Road,Movie today.
And it was fucking awesome. I must say, hats off to Abhay Deo, only he's that courageous in the whole Bollywood Industry to act in a Tarantino style movie.
Also, Dev Benegal directed one hell of a damn good movie.
The movie is dry and slow, but, thats the kind of movies i love to watch, the contemporary Cinema.
The movie starts off very well, and what he encounters and learns how to acclimatize to the situations and well, all the other stuff is for you all to figure out,. I cant tell one bit of this BEAUTIFUL movie.
2 Things I can say for sure, firstly, NOT ONE, Mark my words, NOT ONE dialogue and Screenplay in this movie is un-necessary. All the things, scenes are beautifully crafted and roped in this movie. All in all its a LIFE's JOURNEY.
And Secondly, In my view its India's answer to QT's Inglourious Basterds
This isnt a roller-coaster Road Movie. If you are watching it expecting some roller-coaster ride, then DO NOT watch it.
Is it a novel tale about touring cinema? Sadly, despite immense potential, it’s neither of the two.
This one is mediocre middle-of-the-road movie. And that is the VERY reason why I loved this movie. Otherwise, it would have became very stereotypical. You cant actually read and guess that whats gonna happen next. Right through the movie you'll scratch your heads out as to what movie wanna convey to us, and towards the end you'll feel like some damn fool, as right from the start of the movie Benegal sends out his signals loud and clear, but, you cant actually catch it.
As the story unfolds, you'l learn that its actually a life's journey, however some of the incidents in th movie may seem bizzare and unrealistic but sadly they arent. This movie shows...aaaahh!!..I'll tell you no more as it will make you biased then.
Go, watch it and then reply back to me.
Leave the fucking critics, if QT would have directed this movie, critics would have given it 5 stars to which they gave only 1.
But then, this movie is made targeting a particular audience only and I am pretty much sure that this kinda audience is abundant
