The movie that created lot of stir in recent time' Yeh Saali Zindagi' has finally released and is receiving mixed reaction from the public and critics. Writer-director Sudhir Mishra who has made masterpieces like Is Raat Ki Subah Nahin, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi has now come up with a flick about two gangsters who commit the biggest crime of falling in love.
Before moving towards the likes and dislikes about this new flick first let us know what is the storyline of the movie that stars Irrfan Khan, Arunoday Singh, Chitrangda Singh, Aditi Rao Hyadri, Saurabh Shukla, Sushant Singh.
Yeh Saali Zindagi is a story about Arun (Irrfan Khan) and Kuldeep (Arunoday Singh), the two gangsters involved in some money laundering and thuggish business. But then a turning point comes in their lives, Arun falls in love with Priti (Chitrangda Singh) but fails to gather courage to speak out his heart eventually Priti develops a relationship with another man. On the other hand Kuldeep is trying to leave the crime business as his wife is against his occupation. Here is when the guns and roses game starts with many violent and emotional twists and turns.
The story of the movie is simple but the classic filmmaker has his own style of telling the simplest story in a suspense and twisted manner. The filmmaker makes sure that nothing gets predictable and leaves on audiences to keep guessing what is going to happen next.
However, the movie is lengthy and sometimes exhausting but if you wish to solve the puzzle then it will be fun.
Mishra has given great attention on describing each character.
The most noticeable thing of the movie is its dialogues. Although the usage of words is bold but it clearly showcases today’s scenario and the credit goes to Manu Rishi and Mishra.
Final verdict would be that movie could have been more entertaining if Mishra had kept it short and simple. It looks like the director was willing to tell thousands of the stories in one single movie and that leaves audience bored.
Irfan Khan has done a wonderful job as always but Chitrangda and Arunoday need to show more intensity on screen if they want to go a long way in Bollywood.
In all a good effort put in by the director but a lot more was expected from filmmaker like Sudhir Mishra.
