Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie is a cinematic representation of a short story written by Rabindranath Tagore, titled ‘Kabuliwala’, with some minor twists. Here, Rehmat Khan (Danny Denzongpa) is a passionate BIOSCOPEWALA who frequently travels between India and Afghanistan for showing movies on his […]
Plot = A leukodermic meme designer Archana Pradhan (Geetanjali Thapa) falls in love with the voice and thoughts of a radio jockey Alfaaz (Zain Khan Durrani). She goes on blind dates in search of love, which leads her to her dream man Alfaaz. Will Archana fall in love with Alfaaz, as an individual, or has she submitted her desires to his invisible presence?
Opinion = Bollywood has presented the purest form of love on celluloid after Manjhi: The Mountain Man. I have fallen in love with this movie. The proceedings on screen are filled with ‘orgasmic romance’. As an audience, you will get mesmerized by the thought process and presentation of the characters. In the age of tinder, fling relationships and one – night – stands, the movie tries to rejuvenate old school romance, in a refreshing package. You will feel the pain and loneliness of the characters, which are highly immersive. Like everyone else, the movie brought tears to my eyes, and made me cry profusely at various occasions. It was a delight to watch this flick in the multiplex, where all the remaining patrons were involved and connected with you with the characters on screen. Will love to watch more such movies in future.
Performances = I assure you that, after watching this movie, each and every girl in this country will fall in love with actor Zain Khan Durrani. His voice is mesmerizing. At the multiplex, people were literally feeling an adrenaline rush, listening to his voice and dialogues. He is an uncut diamond. Once you watch this movie, it will be impossible for you to forget his performance, till your last breath. For the first time, actress Geetanjali Thapa has got such a meaty role. You will feel connected with her emotions and loneliness. The remaining cast was just perfect in their respective roles.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Director Onir deserves a pat on the back on attempting this type of movie. His direction will move you internally and you will leave the multiplex with a mesmerizing experience. The most appreciable aspect of the movie is the dialogues written by Abhishek Chatterjee. There are some unforgettable lines and quotes, which will hit your heart directly. I felt the vacuum of not having some romantic numbers in the film, but I can ignore this flaw, considering the overall execution of the plot. The film is made on a shoe-string budget, but still, the cinematography is praise – worthy.
