I was pleasantly surprised with the polished performance turned in by Akash (Mikaal Zulfiqar). I have had the opportunity to teach MBAs in New York Polytechnic and Rutgers, and can certify that this was a very real depiction of a Wall Street tycoon. Nothing over the top, calm, poised, confident.
He genuinely plays the piano, and rendered the song with such elan and intensity it seemed he was a concert pianist.
The movie had a relaxed but confident forward motion. I gave it a 9 because the heroine's dresses were over the top. Otherwise this was a 10.
And I appreciated the director's not inserting cheesy villains or extending the story just because it had to be of a certain length. Its a pretty confident move to have both new leads, but this was a casting coup.
Watch it with a glass of wine in your hand, and prepare to be transported.
