Its all about being Maddi
Not all movies with low box office earnings are duds.. This cute flick proves just that. And another point to ponder is how can guys deciding the various awards recipients' could not recognize the valiant effort of a man, an amchi Mumbai guy, popularly known thereafter as simply Maddi!!! How many a times one can recollect an actor by his screen name n not his actual one, that too from a movie that could not ring the box office bells??? To be true, if such a thing happens then that only in a way can depict the heavy role played by that character in the picture... Meet Maddi, the local amchi Mumbai man who is an Indian at heart n gets bowled over by a truly magnificent looking girl at first sight... He breathes life into his role & puts in such a performance to have shamed many an established stars., He brings in his own style n one is gonna love him for that.. Be it his rowdy look, his mischievous nature, his ascent or his anger, its simply a style that is inimitable.. N in fact the best parts of the movie are when he is with his love interest, doing what he does best, romance.. Its a sheer pleasure seeing him emote, confessing his love, getting excited on hearing the partner's approval of him or gifting a memento to his friend , i mean he does it with a class n energy n uniqueness unheard of before.. Towards the end one can be seen equally moved n dejected on the guy being rejected!!! Not for something he ruled the charts down south n was sought by directors like Mani Ratnam sir for varied roles.. He may not have made it big in bollywood but i guess his time will come... Ably given company by the eye catching miss diya who gives a decent performance n paves way for some great on screen chemistry with Maddy.. A simple, no-nonsense girl character has been given some new dimensions by her., she will leave u spellbound by her beauty, freshness, charm n simplicity... The other co stars too act good.. Saif too pitches in with a satisfactory show. My review would be incomplete without talking about the music.. The music director from south has given some compositions dat can still be heard after more than 10years!!. Be it the beautifully sung melodious tunes in *Zara Zara*& * Dill KO tumse* & my favorite from the versatile singer KK* sach keh raha hai deewana*, a song that Will make you cry, literally n very meaningfully penned.. Another noteworthy point that may have gone against the movie is shoddy dresses given to Maddi, that simply looked old fashioned n southern in character unlike the ones adored by the lead actress. Guys, its a movie that one movie buff must have in his/her collection.. Maddy u are a diamond that needs a director to give it the sheen it truly deserves......... U not only rock but dazzle too..
