| An Average Sell
MARKET's subject matter and premise remind you of CHANDNI BAR to a certain extent. A lot of the reviews have said that the former falls so short of the latter in terms of brilliance and intellectual content. My personal opinion is that both are average films with totally different approaches to film-making. They have two things in common: they are films about prostitutes and both seemed quite unimpressive to me.

MARKET starts off as a social drama on the plight of women in the red-light area in Hydrebad and ends up as a mafia-revenge picture. The director, Jai Prakash obviously wanted to increase the commercial appeal of the film, which might be the reason for the sudden shifts in plot. It is really three films rolled into one. Perhaps with a better script and a gutsy director (a rare endangered species in Bollywood) if a film was made about one of the three, then we might have something to watch out for.

But the performances for the most part are decent, with Manisha once again doing a good job. And to the film's credit there are some sequences which have some novelty to them and have been well done. But just not enough of them to make it a good film on the whole. 6/10.
