R Balki’s Chup pays heartwarming tribute to Guru Dutt – Entertainment News , Firstpost

When you’ve finished watching R. Balki’s sixth film, and his best work since then parI called him and asked if it was copied from an original foreign source, perhaps a Mongolian film.

A Mongolian plagiarism joke was in the movie and I wanted to show it off Balki, a close friend and favorite filmmaker, about how closely I watched his films. Of course, this was completely unnecessary. Balki It’s the rare filmmaker who breaks the glass ceiling in every single film, not allowing shards to pierce his innocence as a filmmaker.

Chap: Revenge of the Artist Not an extra ounce of meat for 2 hours and 12 minutes of intriguing storytelling. This is a well-crafted super-smart serial killer her-thriller in which a florist takes revenge on a film critic. The writing is sharp. All characters, big and small, have sharp and wily lines. Even the wonderful Saranya Ponvanan as the blind mother of the heroine Nira is full of one-liners and she looks like Kanjivaram’s Alexa.

Recall that Arundhati Nag is Vidya Balan’s pokey mother. parHow does Balki think about such unconventional casting? How did he make it? Sunny Deol Does it look so debonair and ball-on-the-ball, like a cop on the prowl looking for a killer? Cops are not given a private life.Only psychiatrist friend played by crazy frizzy hair Pooja Batbrought in after the break to ask the question every filmmaker wants answered since the reviews ruined Guru Dutt’s Carga’s Ke Fool: How does a critic’s mind work? Has he ever felt guilty about the trail of heartbreak he left behind when he trashed a movie?

I thoroughly enjoyed the thriller aspect of the plot, but it was the central romance between Danny the Florist (Darqa Salman) and the entertainment journalist Nila (the very nice Shreyadanwantary).How romance grows through Sachin Dev Bahman’s timeless songs, especially from Guru Dutt’s films Jaan Kyah Chunyi Kahi of Piaasa When wakto ne kiya kya hasen sitam of Kargaz Ke Fool, The way Danny rides his bike for miles on the busy roads of Mumbai to meet Nila, the way she reacts every time he sees her….this is the most romantic and lighthearted liaison I have seen in a long time is.

Dulquer needs no introduction to romancing the screen. But Shreya needs to be seen more.

I wish their romance had a happy ending. Chap Sadly, it’s not the film that Guru Dutt’s timeless romantic songs happily come to fruition. It is a world as inherently tragic as the world of Gurru Dutt, lit by the most wonderful odes to the rewards of the mind.

Capturing the tree-clad side streets of Mumbai’s Bandra like never before, Vishal Sinha’s extraordinary cinematography layers luscious layers on the lashes of pain and longing that underscore Balki’s liberating voyage to the bound mind. will be added.

Chap It’s a movie that should have gone to the Oscars. It’s so original, it delves deep into the darkest corners of the disturbed mind without losing sight of the light that sparks every frame.

After global success shoplifter 2018, Hirokazu Kore-eda He has become the second most hero-worshipped director in South Korea after Bong Joon-ho.I confess I didn’t like Kore-eda Hirokazu’s last movie truth many, He was clearly disorientated in making a film set outside his home country.

The good news is Hirokazu Kore-eda is back on home ground. brokerNo, it’s not set in the financial world. The title refers to the baby kidnapper Sang-hyun (played by Song Kang-ho): That’s him, the kidnapper, altruistically changing the world by taking babies from churches where women leave unwanted babies. I’m thinking… give them to couples without children. Check please?

Remember Shuramila Tagore of Aradhana, the unwed mother who left her baby in the orphanage and returned to find that the baby had already been taken away?An unmarried mother with such an apt name Seo-yeon (Lee Ji-eun) shows up to bring her baby home brokeronly to discover that he has been taken away by baby broker Sang-hyun and his partner Dong-soo (Kang Dong-won).

Here’s where the already unsettling plot thickens, as all three, baby broker, his partner, and baby’s mother, set off for a road trip that’s as unrelated to me as an umbrella during a tsunami. increase.

Why are 3 people traveling with a baby? The adults seem to have lost their motives, but little Hyejin seems to be asking all sorts of related questions, some of which even I wanted to ask the three main characters.

What is the purpose of this trip? All the characters seem to love babies so much, so why are babies given to childless couples and actually sold?

At the most elementary level of logistical sense, broker I’m not sure. Of course, the film is not a total failure. I loved the bonding of 5 travelers on a road trip. There is a deep attachment that grows during the journey. But somehow the crux of the journey, the spiritual crux of the road trip, is unconvincing.

I loved the two female detectives chasing five travelers. The two detectives are constantly eating. Comfort food in movies that are becoming increasingly uncomfortable to watch.

We love the characters, but their motives remain ambiguous. En route, she was told she had committed a heinous crime before fleeing with her baby. Her happiness seems to be just a matter of making the right decisions, so why would she decide to dig her own grave?

broker not the movie we would expect from the director of shoplifter When our sisterIts emotional tendencies are esoteric, and its characters’ behavior is neither consistent nor correct. I suspect that somewhere in this cheeky, politically incorrect, dark satire hides some really great emotional drama. I’ll have to look for it again.

I thought it was a 2018 movie directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda shoplifter much better than broker, both in terms of its emotional speed and dramatic structure.Alfonso Cuarón’s Mexican film Rome and Japanese by Hirokazu Kore-eda shoplifter Great movie. And they deserved an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. Rome I left with honor. But that doesn’t make it a better movie.

Both speak the universal language of the mind. Both are works that celebrate the joy of being part of a family, and teach us that families are, in fact, not something you are born with, but something you nurture and nurture.of Rome, Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a domestic helper in an upper-class Mexican family, is more like family to her employer than ever before.

Cuarón follows the ups and downs of Cleo’s employer’s life. We do not evaluate their shortcomings or congratulate them on their successes. Rome Simply…. not only echo life, but hone those rhythms with eternal allusions.

This is the magic of great cinema.Either way, you can easily immerse yourself in the drama. Rome When shoplifter without understanding the spoken language. I firmly believe that language should be the least relevant element of communication in a good film.of shoplifting, Signs, signals and echoes play a very important role in the overall impact of a film. 24 hours after he saw this masterpiece, I’m still thinking about the characters. The fringe people living on the fringes of Tokyo society are no different than the brave men of Satyajit Ray’s famine-stricken Bengalese. peter panchali.

It is an immoral way of life.But the one that gives space above the stomach and below the brain for love and compassion. shoplifter was a celebration of the dysfunctional state of the Shibata family without compromising their tragic situation of deprivation and poverty. It is “happiness” in the sense that happiness is obtained when one accepts one’s destiny as the ultimate culmination of a family’s journey into an open and welcoming space.of the family.

like Patel Panchali there are no villains shoplifternot even fate, that cruel verdict seems to have pierced the family’s shared joy too quickly.

not like Rome, If the director chooses to leave the family in a less tragic finale, the family will shoplifter It will fall apart at the end. In the finale, there is a haunting father-son sequence in which son Shota asks his father Samu tough questions about parental ties.In an earlier scene at the beach (both Rome When shoplifter There’s an important interlude with the family on the beach), and the father talks to his son about puberty, breasts, and excitement like an older fellow.

Apuin peter panchali I couldn’t share these confidences with my father. In India, we are too revered for our parents to discuss physical pleasures with them. Besides, Satyajit Ray was shy about physical intimacy and sex. shoplifter It hides nothing from the character’s rumination area because it scares nothing. You can’t afford to be embarrassed when sleeping in a room the size of a handkerchief with her five other members of the family.

of Rome, The family shares many silences.of shoplifting, They are constantly talking and of course eating. Did your parents tell you that talking while eating is bad manners?watch over family shoplifter They talk, run, steal, sleep while they eat… They break many rules and do it without even showing bravery. These people need to bond all the time because their time is running out. And they don’t need silence to remind them of their fragile life. shoplifterThis Family Needs Much More Approval Than Family Rome.
