In Transit (Delayed!) Reviews: ‘Attacks of 26/11’ and ‘Inkaar’

We all saw it happen, felt the anguish and disgraced the shameful deed of audacious crime with open arms. Yet, RGV’s bio-centric recapitulation of gory chapters spits venom and reminds us of inhuman embellishment.
It isn’t a review, because it isn’t. It was bad walk down the memory lane, with events unfolding in front of us as the ‘Joint Commissioner’ runs us through his hapless credentials that were a victim of cohesive damage.
Splattered blood, screeching yet relevant background shells, hapless Mumbaikars and Kasab (as depicted in the terror sequences) – RGV recounts with pain and uncomfortable questions, yet again.
But I loved every bit of Nana. He has been a terrific actor in such intensified author backed roles and doesn’t disappoint. His baffled expressions, ferocious yet restrained was the need for a film that took one of the darkest chapters in its belly. I am sure it’s inspired well from real protagonists but reel was evidently cinematized, understandably (credits did indicate that some liberties have been incurred). His duels with Kasab was of great intrigue, shocking at times. But RGV has been kind. Kasab is still human in his adaptation, and difficult to believe that bloated individuals with utter disrespect for human life would live with weapons of a normal, very normal human being.

An attempt to be recorded for not playing again.

A Sudhir Mishra film is always special for me. An assignment filled with intrigue, awe and perspiration, ‘Inkaar’ deals with one of the most sensitive issues in our racks with pertinent audacity.
Stylishly penned and laced with necessary humour content, it takes off from the stands. A famed moderator (Deepti Naval), usual colleague suspects and loads of ‘tu tu main main’: elements that have never ever given us the right verdict on such deterrent issues. Fair enough, Sudhir gives us drama and emotions in toasts and keeps us glued to continue battering about an issue that has long undergone human evolution, few systemic and few are iconic indulgence. Debates, have and will occur as long as men and women work together in mutual-non mutual congruence. ‘Inkaar’ gets this uncomfortable liaisons out in the park.
Impulsive, arrogance, egos – they have been hallmarks of show business for ages now, and we have been splashed with those ethos, with some sweet melodies and titillating screenplay. Arjun Rampal and Chitrangada Singh’s chemistry sizzles, both come up with terrific performances. Rest of the cast supports with flair.
Not a typical classic, yet ‘Inkaar’ has moments of breeze and pedigree.

Flamboyance meets me, and I could be contagiously luring. It kind of comes off in my writing, as my stories of passion and indulgence unfold.
