Forget ‘Emotional Atyachaar’ of Anurag Kashyap, forget ‘Kaminey’ of Vishal Bhardwaj for a while…the reason is this absolutely groundbreaking film on Indian screen by the man who hits all the nails hard. In a way it’s film where Dibakar Benrjee throws a hand grenade to the audience. It’s revolutionary film for so many reasons- it’s first Indian film completely shot on hand held camera from start to finish and it gives you feel like watching the world of damn reality, absolutely unknown amateur actors who shed all inhibitions of conventional acting, three completely hard hitting stories as per the title suggests and a direction who’s more an auteur handling all this collage of art. Hail Dibakar Benerjee and Hail Ekta Kapoor for bringing this attack on senses.
Reality television, sting operation, casting couch, shopping mall camera footage, real porn clips or MMS scandal; Benerjee has everything on platter and out of that what he created is something totally mind-blowing and experimental screenplay of three stories. What is more praiseworthy is the way he gives you surprising shocks in each of them and unfolds them as you watch another story and its again brilliant intermixing and editing. But what is most difficult thing he accomplished as an Indian filmmaker is the way he dealt with totally naïve ensemble cast and all mind me they all deserves standing ovation for leaving no stones unturned in their raw expressions, bold attitude and hard hitting realistic acts.
Dibakar lampooned & mimicked India’s most loved and admired bollywood romance DDLJ and director Aditya Chopra in his first story with his own stamp in the end part, the second story was completely mind fucking one and one which is completely 360 degree reverse of what we expected; the best in my opinion. Compared to first two, the third one is quit weaker but not average or avoidable. Compared to his early satiric, funny & character oriented ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’ and ‘Oye Lucky Lucky Oye’, this one is absolutely acid material and it’s here where Dibakar has hit the head with all his might bewaring us the most commonly available and the most dangerous hand weapon of today’s time-‘camera’. Yes sir, you’re being watched & howdy ya’ feel about it!!!
By all means watch this new change of Indian cinema…it may possible that it makes you left the theatre in the middle or praising the Indian cinema like never before.
Ratings-10/10 (Can’t control it!!!)
