‘A Wednesday’ is the story of a common man who tries to fight for his commonality in a not so common way. Terrorism has had its way always – leaving a constant fear in the minds of many people – as they walk through the paths of their lives. And now its time for the common man to have his way – to answer back terrorism!!! And if you have actors like Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah in the lead for an interesting plot like this, half the job is done.
Naseeruddin Shah depicts very well the role of the ‘common man’ while Anupam Kher carries off the role of an authoritative police commissioner confidently. The interplay between these two characters has been woven in beautifully – both the actors perform naturally to their best.
The supporting cast – Jimmy Shergill and Aamir Bashir, as well as a character like Naseeruddin Shah’s wife (whose is never shown in the movie) do justice to their roles and contribute to the smooth flow of the movie.
A must watch for everyone, especially those who either don’t enjoy or have had enough of the regular masala type movies.
