Via Darjeeling Bollywood Movie Review


A tale with multiple endings, the story begins on a backdrop of typical 'Adda' concept prominent in Bengal and a group of friends (Rajat, Simone, Sandhya, Prashant) along with their cop friend inspector Robin Datt (Vinay Pathak) get together. Robin starts off with a tale that happened two years ago when a newly married couple Ankur (Kay Kay Menon) and Rimli (Sonali) come to the beautiful hill station of Darjeeling for their honeymoon. After spending few good days, life takes a turn for Rimli when suddenly Ankur goes missing. Despite her best efforts, she is unable to trace him and in comes inspector Robin who starts investigating the case and ends up with no results, the only suspects in hand is a possible taxi driver with whom Ankur has a tiff and then there is the shady looking man Bonny (Parvin) who according to Rimli is stalking her ever since she arrived in Darjeeling. The friends are now intrigued by the whole happenings and what follows from there is the different interpretations of the situation from each of them. What happens in the end forms the rest of the story.


Via Darjeeling Hindi Cinema Review


The director wanted to come out with a suspense kind of story but then he failed on the narration aspect though the presentation was neat. Not much help was given to him due to the shoddy camerawork, rough editing, the story itself with lot of loose ends. The script was having a lot of loopholes and the screenplay was okay. The music has come out with some real good tunes this time and suited the mood of the film.  The cast has come out with some real good performance. Kay Kay Menon as always scored hundred points while Sonali was a real show stealer, Vinay Pathak was excellent, Rajat was super, Sandhya Mridul looked wild and attractive and equally good was her performance, Prashant was perfect, Simone was sweet. The others did their bit as required.



The idea of bringing out a tale of twists and turns was good but then it needs to be woven with a concrete subject and some tight script. While the first half takes off on an interesting note and the suspense element arrives on the right time, slowly things start falling apart and there comes a time when the audience is not much into the movie, especially the versions from each character have not been very captivating barring the one from Rajat. Though the film might find few admirers who are more into experimental cinema, it will definitely not suffice the other classes of audience and commercially it has no elements to score few points. A sure flop is written on the cards.

Bharatstudent verdict: This is only for the experimental audience, nothing much for the general viewers.
