Raman Raghav II


Due to all kinds of problems, I was unable to see this film when it was released in our theaters. I was however told by very discerning filmgoers that I must see it and so procured a DVD and saw it yesterday.

First thing that struck me was that here was another film completely out of the ordinary Indian film that was also a commercial success. A psychological study of an ordinary slum dwelling person and a senior police official both psycho cases. That it was a success says something about the average movie goer of India who seems to have developed a taste for the esoteric instead of only the dramatic, song and dance routines movies.

Both the protagonists, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vicky Kaushal come up trumps in their roles and some superb direction from Anurag Kashyap has produced a first class movie which I was able to enjoy to the full in the comfort of my home where I could adjust the volume of sound to my liking!

If you have not seen it, I strongly recommend your doing so. You will not be disappointed.

    you should have been a movie critic rummy. whether i ever get to watch the movies you review… i am always taken by your fair and astute critique of them!
    i am going to watch for the book AND the movie of the last post… ‘the namesake.’

    1. I love going to the theaters to watch movies as that gives me an opportunity to get out of my home and since transportation is not a problem, and the theaters are quite close by, I enjoy the experiences. It is only when I cannot get to see a film that I get a DVD to watch at home. You will enjoy The Namesake.
