Poor Son…. Sorry! I must say, Poor Audiences….
Actually I m shocked to see the professional critic rating given by the professionals. Bollywood Hungama – 2stars; Times – 2 stars; Indiatimes – 2stars. The only genuine rating seen was by Mid-day, i.e. “Half Star”. Perfect rating!
The movie is being written and directed by Rakesh Chaturvedi. A very new and fresh start by the man in the field of directorship. But sad for him, apart from very new and fresh start, it’s also very awful and bad ending.
It’s about a story of a boy (Raam) who loves her mother (Padmini) very much and so passionately. But his only problem was his attitude and nature, as he was very aggressive, gets angry in a second, and does some wild things which are very harmful to others. The very first scene of the film opens in the form that police is taking this guy to the police station on a charge of being killing his mother. Further on investigating, police had tried their level best to know the reason behind this that why the son has killed her mother, which he loved her so much. But he was numb and was not speaking a word. (That’s why the film is being title as “Bolo Raam”). Now as the investigation moves further, the story often goes on flashback to reveal the whole story. At the end Raam found out some clue, ran from the Police station, caught that real culprit who killed her mother, and the case solved. (Thank God, Atlast!)
Direction by Rakesh Chaturvedi was very old style; it was looking like we are watching some 80’s B-grade movie. Tried to copy some Hollywood intercut and flashback styles, but failed to give even 1% of it. Editing by Aseem Sinha was even worst to that. It was looking like we are watching some Doordarshan TV serial. The plot was old but can be made little more interesting if the screenplay would have been properly written. Screenplay was written by Sanjeev Giriver & Rakesh Chaturvedi, and they made “A Big Torture” to the audiences. Music given by Sachin Gupta was below Ok rating, he should try some Balaji Productions. Songs were forgettable. BGM was Ok.
Padmini came after a 3yrs of gap, and gave a convincing performance. The new comer Rishi Bhutani was Ok when he was mute, but awful when he was delivering dialogues. Good news is that he remains mute in 90% of the film. For this the all the credit goes to Rakesh Chaturvedi. Talented Nasserudin Shah and Ompuri as a Mental Doctor and Senior Police Inspector were pathetically wasted. Happy for Nasserudin as he was smart and shared hardly about 15mins of screen presence. Sad for Ompuri as he shared almost more than 75% of the screen presence. New comer Juhi Pandey as a lead actress was bad. Govind Namdeo gave a decent performance as a Sub-Inspector and as a father. Manoj Pahwa was Ok, Rajpal Yadav was irritating, and the rests were type cast.
