This movie turned out to be better than I had expected. The last thing I wanted to do was to watch a movie that hammers you through Friday evening. It did not fortunately.Yes, the modern day interpretation was not a bad idea, nor was it vague. Abhay Deol has this uncanny ability to select movies that might not create a very good impression in the 'promotions' but does manage to create a level of intrigue in movie goers, which i think works to his advantage.
So, back to the movie, though it was not a complete bouncer and managed to retain most of Dev Das's character as well as the others, I was glad the ending was not jinxed. The actors to best of my critiquing abilities were also impressive for the role they played.
The only blotch in the movie, though probably at a completely personal level, is that it again tries to explore the darkest side of Delhi which you are aware of but not candid about. When you are living in that truth anyway, I don't need someone to come and reinforce that. For a series of things that have happened both in the literary and the film world this concept was not novel. When compared to other 'dark humour' genre movies, Khosla ka Ghosla fairs much better, given that it retains the humour in life while reveling the truth. I guess, at some level the film maker really needs to decide, as to what he would want say to the audience. And, you cannot escape b saying that this movie is not meant for the masses. Its out there, its supposed to entertains you.
Heavy dose, I know!!!!
