“Koi baat nahin beta, jo ho gaya so ho gaya, ab sab bhool jao”.
This statement in this movie by Chanda made me to watch this movie again.
I watched this movie twice. I never had plans to watch this movie. One of my friends asked me for a party and that also to be celebrated in his way. He persuaded me to watch this movie. I went with him. In the very first 30-45 minutes of movie I felt this is not of my kind. I was finding it totally meaningless. I under evaluated the movie. I was in theater but not watching it. I went into my own thoughts and probably concentrated on just 20-25% of it. My comments on the movie after first time were, it is a totally pathetic, psychic movie which revolves around only sex.
I continued with my same opinion for a long time, but somewhere I also got reminded of a few more things which were there in my cache somewhere and I felt that this movie had shown some feelings very well. I listened to the songs and took movie DVD from somebody. Print was not good so I just scrolled through some of the portions of the movie which I had liked and realized that this movie had something more than what I had concluded in the first time. I then ultimately decided to watch this movie again.
I went alone to watch this movie to theater. It was not the firs time when I was watching a movie in theater alone. This time I watched it completely, without loosing anything and as per my prediction, it is really a well directed, well made, nicely acted, awesome movie. It shows the feelings in a very nice way. The things which I was finding weird in the first time, actually I realized that they have a very important role in the manifestation of those feelings in the movie. I liked Chanda’s part the most.
The way she gets indulged into MMS scandal and she comes to know that everybody has come to know. The way the feeling of loosing respect is shown. The way a feeling of helplessness is shown. The way one’s feelings when one feels that nobody is there for him/her, is shown, is really appreciable. She comes to India and gets rejected by her family members and that also in a very harsh way. She ultimately leaves the place, comes to Delhi and there she nothing to eat even. Unfortunately she has to indulge into prostitution. Chanda’s story again takes a pace when Dev enters her life. The most touching part of the movie which I found was, when Chanda starts liking Dev, starts caring for him. At one point Dev says, “What do you know about pain?”. She tells her story to him. She says, “Mujhe to aise ghoorate the sab jaise meine jaane kitne khoon kiye hon, agar poori duniya ne mujhe dekh liya to mein kya karun aur sabko kaise pata chala ki wo mein hi thi, naa to MMS TV par dikhaya tha, naa meri photo kahin publish hui thi, kyunki sab ne download kar ke dekha tha, sabne maze liye and they called me the slut”.
And then comes the song, “Dil mein jaage arman naye .. “. After this Chanda shares her personal experiences with Dev about her family. Where she says, “Mera baap hone ke bajaye, mujhe gale se lagakar bolne ke bajaye ki koi baat nahin beta jo ho gaya so ho gaya, bhool jao, unhone khud ko goli maar li”, then Dev hugs her says the same, “Koi baat nahin beta, jo ho gaya so ho gaya, ab sab bhool jao“.
This need for this assurance that at least somebody is there for you, this feeling or expectation of getting accepted unconditionally is shown really very well.
This movie has shown some feelings really very well. The kind of feeling of deprivation of Dev, the kind of feeling of loosing everything in case of Chanda. The direction, the music, the manifestation of feelings is really good. If one can keep apart some of the controvertial dialogs and issues then this movie has shown feelings really very well. Songs also depict the feelings really good.
