Great Prison Movie
You can call it a bromance, comedy, musical or whatever but its a prison movie at the end of the day. Almost the whole movie takes place in one setting. There are very few prison movies made and for a good reason, they are very hard to pull off. It’s no Shawshank Redemption but for an Indian movie, it was extremely well made and executed. One of my favorite Indian movies now.
Music is great and goes really well with the plot. Not sure if it’s songs you’ll listen to outside of the movie but in the movie they work brilliantly. I’ve found myself on YouTube a few times watching the songs again.
Prison movies usually don’t have a lot of characters so you have to make them count. Ronit Roy is not doing the usual. Even though he’s played a cop/hard-ass a few times, this one was very well played. Not the clichéd part some are describing it as. The scene where his wife calls him is great and very telling. Pay attention to the details. He definitely enhances the movie. The rest of the cast is great too. You’ll recognize some faces even if you don’t know the names, other than Farhan. Farhan and Deepak especially stand out. Deepak is always great in the few movies I’ve seen him in.
A must watch in my opinion if you appreciate Indian cinema. This one is a really under-appreciated movie and I think it’ll build a fan base over time due to Netflix, etc.
I’ve never review for any movie .. But this movie deserves ….
