I was shocked when they played the National Anthem in the beginning of the movie. Im not sure about the use of it, but I know it existed in Chennai theatres too. Why was that removed ? hmm..
Then they screened Being Cyrus. Oh Holy Crap !
The movie is technically very good.. but has a very simple Illogical story. Tamil audience have seen it many times as a sub-movie(a flashback part in a movie). Im not sure if this kind of story telling is new to Bollywood, but I wasnt impressed.
The Director, Homi Adajania, has taken a very easy story and trusted it on Saif Ali Khan. He's got a very good acting skill, but that isnt very necessary in this movie. Dimple Kapadia, Naseerudin Shaw, Boman Irani and most of all Honey Chaya have acted their part well. Only unfortunately the story isnt that thirsty to suck out their potentials.
There are twists and turns in the movie. Intellgent audience will find easy-and-sloppy logical mistakes. The other normal mass like me will find it extremely confusing. This movie speaks English completely and some bad-words in Hindhi. The editing and camera works well.
The Soundtrack is the most awesome department in the movie. Amazing music in the background. World-class.
I get sick when some mediocre effort like Being Cyrus gets so much of attention. Just becuase the movie speaks english, and just because the movie is close to reality, it cant be called a great movie.
It is the Debut effort of the director. People ! Dont give him the wrong idea.. Fail him :)
If you remember my previous post, I read a review which said "Being Cyrus is an obsessive, inconclusive, disorderly, and strangely humane story about an outsider struggling to get inside himself. " - What the heck.. Either he went to a different movie, or I was out of minds.
