A Wednesday

Naseerudin Shah

Naseerudin Shah

The film is based on one little turning point that throws the whole perspective of the hunted and hunter.It is well-done and creeps onto you without notice. Again, a lack of fanfare does it a lot of credit.The shock of the content is enough for stomachs to churn in surprise and the director is intelligent enough to realise that.”A Wednesday” serves as magic, due to its grip plot line. The trip, from start to finish of a fateful Wednesday, keeps you on tenterhooks.

Naseerudin Shah has already proved himself over the years and “A Wednesday” easily makes its way into his Top 5 works.His talk on the “Common Man” before the movie ends is an obvious specimen of his talent.If there is one player who could face Shah, it is Anupam Kher.Goose pimples develope in the concluding scene when both giants meet face to face.

The movie throws an open debate on the Democracy of India and its giving to the common man.Of course, terrorism is the background image here, but a Wednesday talk on the status and power of the common man.This songless flick has come out as one of the best and bravest films to come out in 2008.

Just like my review,it is a small film that not only has it heart and mind in the right place but also its technique and message.I beleive many of you are yet to watch it.My suggestion for them is to go for the movie right now.

“A must watch for every indian”

  1. It’s an amazing movie, maybe even the best of bollywood. The last conversation between Naseerudin Shah and Anupam Kher is a masterpiece, like you said.

  2. when are we going to learn to keep the entire length of the movie in our head and then pass a judgment!!judging by the last 20 mins, which sounded nothing but jingoistic to me, need to be altered.and sorry Shiva it is not the best of bollywood by any means.the best of bollywood is Guru Dutt, Bimal Roy, Satyajit ray, shyam benegal, govind nihalani and these days
    sudheer mishra and vishal bhardwaj!!
