Who would have thought?
I watched this movie last night. It has been more than 20 hrs since then. The movie is still on my mind. I had to write something.
I was completely blown away by the movie, and the Director, and the actors,and the camera work, and the writers, and the subject, and last but not the least, the complete outlook of the movie, which I reckon was biggest the USP of LSD.
This is a 'First' in Hindi cinema. Mind you.
This movie is about the harsh reality that exists in our society. There is no denying. There is no sugar coating it. There is no spoon feeding. There is no compromise. There is no pity. There is no make believe.
It is in your face as it is. It's all real.
The Actors have done a tremendous job. They have put those so called 'stars' to shame. I couldn't believe how natural they are, that It doesn't look acting at all. It seems you are watching real people through a camera.
Dibakar Benerjee is 'THE' Director in contemporary Hindi Cinema among others. He has Director's attitude and aptitude. He knows what he is doing. and doesn't compromise on that. We need more like him to revolutionize the Hindi cinema. And I suppose it has already started in last 5 yrs or so. Amen.
Let me tell you that LSD is not for everyone. So how do you tell if it's for you or not? Only you can decide it.
Do yourself a favor. Go, watch it with an open mind.
