And that rock band keeps appearing in between, giving soul to the narration. Most cell phone thefts happen near the door, so do not use your cell phone near the door of a metro. I'm not sure if the makers of 'The Apartment' are at least credited. Shiny Ahuja and Kanga Ranaut play easy parts but their talents are used only to a minimum. Song Name - In Dino Movie - Life in a Metro Singer - Soham Composer - Pritam Lyricists - Sayeed Quadri Music Label - Sony Music Entertainment India Pvt. Unfortunately due to this hype, people are comparing Anurag Basu to his namesake - Anurag Kashyap - who plays many leagues above him. Internal chatter, wondering if they like us will get in the way of a healthy dating process.
On this count, Life in a Metro fails miserably since it treats a mature subject with an amateur outlook. This is the kind of movie that rarely come out in Bollywood and the filmmakers should be appreciated to come up with a sensible movie which doesn't rely on over the top acting or item songs to rein in audiences. Dharmendra as the lover of Nafisa is back to India and Nafisa after realizing the mistake done by him. I've really wanted to see this movie especially because of the ensemble cast that boasts of India's most talented actors including Irfan Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kay Kay Menon and Shiny Ahuja. I promise, another train will come, and most likely in no more than five minutes, and very often in less than 1 minute.
Worth watching once for sure. Shiny gets limited scope but makes use of his screen space well. He insults her and leaves. We see both these characters respectively from Shikha and Shruti's point of view. There is this person Kay Kay who is married to Shilpa is not very happy with his marriage and sleeps with Kangana. At least most B-movies don't pretend to be original. There are about six songs in the movie and all of them are sung by male singers.
If you are afraid that some of your group members will be separated, make a plan ahead of time, in the event that this happens. The lives of a group of people, who live in Mumbai are told in this tale, which revolves around Rahul - who occupies an apartment owned by his uncle, and lets rich and influential people use it for their personal sexual past-times. The screening of this Indian film I saw was not the final cut and didn't have the final soundtrack, nor did it feature any background noise. The actor is a complete natural though this does remind you a little of the character he played in Silsiilay. Anmol and Shivani do get to spend time together in a 'notebook' style with a slight deviation. Basu's association with Pritam continues to produce some really good music.
This movie gave Anurag Basu to provide to us a authentic and fresh representation of adults in the city of Mumbai. The large population crowded in small areas poses a housing challenge leading to slum creation and expansion. While the credits roll, we are shown Akash still roaming the streets of Mumbai, Shikha and Ranjeet are in a happier marriage, and Rahul was living happily with Neha. So were Dharmendra and Nafisa Ali as the loving elder couple. The Dharmendra-Nafisa track, though was nice and sweet, at times it seemed a little out of place except the scene with Dharmendra, Shilpa and Konkona and forced because it doesn't fit with any of the other subplots.
There is a plain jane Konkana who is scared of marriage because she feels that something might go wrong in marriage. Luke opened the book of Acts by saying that the earthly ministry of Jesus had concluded, but that He was going to continue what He begun and continue to teach through the Church. Among the troupe of mostly wonderful actors, Kay Kay Menon thunders ahead portraying a selfish and chauvinistic husband and boss. Melodrama and formula somehow creep in and take over the final act of the movie in a complete departure of style from the rest of the movie. In fact at times it seems to go the Madhur Bhandarkar populist way - where by showing something big a metropolitan city in a negative light, he tries to win the masses.
Shikha deserts Akash and compromises with Ranjeet for her daughter. Create a sensual sanctuary by getting rid of anything that is not beautiful or useful. Kay Kay Menon is very good as Shikha's infidel husband Ranjeet. Akash and Shikha's relationship starts as friendship and almost blossoms romantically, until Shikha feels guilty and cannot cross the limits that she has fervently guarded for years. Performances by Kay Kay Menon, Sharman Joshi, Irfan Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma stand out, the rest including celebrity big brother star Shilpa Shetty simply fade as the movie progresses. They tend to get wild running after these things This has been rightly depicted by the movie. There are some huge implications in that.
This is an easy way to avoid the annoyance of local metro riders. The other narratives were more predictable. Overall a good movie experience. However one could argue that his character is a bit one-dimensional except in the scenes with his daughter where we see a loving father. All ends well except for Akash and in the end, you really feel sorry for him and Shikha — thanks to their wonderful performances. Special mention to both Kay Kay and Shilpa Shetty didn't realise she had it in her for really pulling it off.
