This week's most refreshing release '3 Storeys' shows three different stories set in a chawl of Mumbai. A well written fast pace thriller this film keeps you hooked from the start till its end.
Each story has a certain gripping element along with a surprise ending that you never see coming. The stories include Flory(Renuka Shahane), a grieving mother and a businessman Vilas(Pulkit Samrat) looking for a kholi, Varsha(Masumeh Makhija), facing an abusive marriage and her ex-lover Shankar(Sharman Joshi) & Malini(Aisha Ahmed) and Suhail(Ankit Rathi) two youngsters deeply in love but separated by parental pressure with Leela(Richa Chadda) as the narrator.
The characters share almost equal screen time with each of them giving admirable performances specially Renuka, Sharman and Masumeh. However the strength of the movie lays in its writing and the short run-time. The screenplay is written by Althea Dalmas Kaushal who in past has been a part of flops like 'Happy New Year' and 'Noor' and is brilliantly directed by Arjun Muherjee(making his debut).
'3 Storeys' is a good example of how a film rapidly moving movie can be executed within a short time span. You come out of the theater with growing respect towards these low-budget classics.
