    Is this actually Written and Directed by Piyush Jha?

    The guy who directed the films like Chalo America (1999) and King of Bollywood (2004), both the genre of Comedy and both the gap of 5 yrs each. His recent Sikandar (2009), same the gap of almost 5yrs, but the genre, totally different from what he did until now.

    We have seen many directors who always stick to their particular type of Genre, and also they do give out the good films for us. Likewise, David Dhawan is famous for Comedy; J.P.Dutta is famous for Patriotic; Yashraj is famous for Love stories; and etc. But many other directors are also there, who try to do something different, from their type, from their genre. Likewise, Anurag Kashyap who has given us films like Hanuman Returns and films like Dev D, Gulaal; Vishaal Bharadwaj who has given us films like Makdee and films like Maqbool, Omkara and the recent one Kaminey; and now Mr. Piyush Jha, who has given us films like Chalo America and King of Bollywood and the films like Sikandar.

    These extra-ordinary directors had taken our Indian Cinema to a next level by their extra-ordinary talents, by which, we the Indians are proud to have such filmmakers.

    Sikandar, Written and Directed by Piyush Jha, is an extra-ordinary film, which is a must watch for all those who are concerned with Kashmir. This film is not about some Patriotic thing or not about some India-Pakistan thing. This film is all about a Kashmiri Boy, who actually becomes a pawn by the politician and is trapped by their politic moves. The twists and turns of the films are a must watch, especially before the climax. But on an honest note, I actually didn’t like the last climax scene of the film.

    But overall, beautifully written, beautifully directed, awesome music, nicely edited, and a 4Star performances by Parzan Dastur and Ayesha Kapoor.

    Rating: 3.5/5
