Proof that just adding SRK to the cast does not a good movie make.
3 decent/good actresses, 3 pretty bad actors, 3 somewhat boring vignettes, 1 ever-excellent supporting actress, 1 SRK.
Add a few mediocre songs marinated in some really atrocious music. Let simmer for 134 agonizing minutes.
Is there anything good about the flick? Sure. When it comes to acting, Divya Dutta once again shines in her perpetual supporting role as Bhoomika Chawla's younger sister. As far as content, the flick's been called vulgar, and crass, and completely unnecessary. Is it an effort to eschew our desi moral code and espouse Hollywood's? Hardly. As amateur an effort as it is, Silsilay is still an attempt to look at life as most of the world lives it. Casual sex is simply a fact of life, whether or not we agree with it. By attempting to portray a small slice of reality, Bollywood is acknowledging that we live in less morally restrictive times, not advocating promiscuity. In that regard, Silsilay is to be commended.
