Another one coming from the maker of Khosla ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky. I had loved the previous two , so was quite looking forward to this.
Overall, I'd say I quite liked it.
Its covers three sub-stories, the first covering a ddlj-not-quite type "love", the second takes on the trickier and the sleasier "sex", and the final part focussing on "dhoka". In a way however the three themes run subtly throughout the gritty movie, shot entirely with a handheld cam, or cctv style cams. It suites the tone of the movie , and its well utilised, although I'm not a big fan of the shaky jerky handhelds.
I don't think its as good as the his previous movies, but still worth a watch. For one thing, bits of "delhi" are again caught amazingly well, the way oye lucky did. Then again, I thought the second part was pretty good in isolation. The third was so so.
The first part where he hits out at ddlj most savagely, and cinematically pretty ineffectively was something I loved nevertheless. No matter that it is a pretty poorly made sequence, I personally hated DDLJ so much, that I was just waiting all these years for someone to take it apart, even if in a shallow manner the way its done here. I remember writing in my diary then ( gosh its been a while! - 15 years ago), and trying to analyse why the sachchrine sweetness irritated me. Why expecting parents to come around sounded silly then, and still does. They don't come around, they sit there under the weight of all their prejudices and egos, wasting the best years of your life, and sometimes it can get much much worse. It was sad that hindi movies tended to take simplistic views about "running away" ala QSQT style or "obeying parents", as if life is that simple. The whole problem of course ties in with our concept of parenting, which I disagree with. But lets leave that topic for another day.
All in all , worth a watch, but be prepared, its rather hard hitting, and a shallow look can even leave someone thinking ( and yes there were a bunch of people like that in the hall) - "abe, aise to main bhi camera le ke ek movie bana lun!
