Bejoy Nambiar, a name I had never heard of, now is a name I will remember for a very very long time, and my heart and soul will wait for his next movie to release. Sometimes you don’t know what to say, this is one of those moments. I just came back from the theater, it’s like 12 midnight. I am totally numb. Kalki Koechlin, another girl that I’m in love with ( unfortunately, the girlfriend of my favorite film director and producer of this film, Anurag Kashyap ) in her role of Amy was spellbinding and so were the rest of them. The camera work was excellent and the techniques used were very fresh and a lot of scenes carried symbolic or obliterated content, left for the viewer to decide, to ponder. The depictions of little Amy with her mother were superbly shot.
It’s overwhelming to know that there were a little over 40 people in the theater of the capacity of over 500. It was overwhelming because I heard some of them say ‘Ek number ki philam hai yaar’. I was happy, as if I had made the movie. And it is very peaceful to know that people do acknowledge good cinema, sometimes.
Indian Cinema is officially out of its dark phase, I guess. With the likes Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj, Sagar Ballary, Dibankar Banerjee and now Bejoy Nambiar, the art of film making in India is almost on the verge of transformation or rather, realization.
If you are claustrophobic and achluophobic, you must consider watching this movie more than once. I am going to watch this movie more than once, in theater.
A must watch.
