Mumbai Meri Jaan released last week and it had my dream cast in it,so I couldn't dare to miss this one..Kay Kay,Irfan,Paresh..wow...What else do I want??? The film tells the story of 6 lives ,very different from each other,in terms of background, yet close to each other,in terms of frustration & solidarity.
The film is about the Mumbai train blasts but its not,"only" about the blasts.It peeps into the lives of rich and poor, dangerous and foolish, corruption and morality and ends up showcasing ,that in the end we all have a heart which despite facing several pains,still manages to beat in a way,which is as beautiful as Mozart's Symphony No. 40.
The performances are top notch but Kay Kay is the one who is ahead of the rest. Paresh Rawal has the most author backed role and he does ,what is expected of him,i.e. deliver a knock out performance. Irfan has done fantastically well,but I wish,he had got some more scenes.Soha and Madhavan are adequate,but its Kay Kay, Paresh and Irfan,who make this movie reach the highest level.
A wonderful and a brilliant film with the song placement in the last scene ,being a masterstroke.
my rating- 8 out of 10
