| High drama high on adrenaline!
Masala movies are beautiful; no explicit message, just a trip down the lanes of diurnal fantasy. This is not a fantasy movie though; it is just pure drama on the lines Goodfellas; it is far more sombre and intense, but the stuff to excite you about the troubles and predicaments that beset the world of gangsters, is all there in an intense packaging. Indian actors are rarely method-actors but they usually have the ability to incite great passion and great empathy in their audience and with good reason: when they get the right directors, you can usually see clearly then that for them, it was never about the money, but about the pleasure that comes from realising the deepest recesses of their craft.
