MUKHBIR and DELHI 6
Ultimately i saw Delhi-6. And everybody has written so much about, so I wont go into the details, for me...
I t drags at places with an over dose of Ramlila and black monkey.
For me an interesting movie is the one where I get irritated with any interruption the way it happened with fashion, but here I went out to get tea:).
it has Cliche...hindu muslim characters with their fixed specialities:)
Whenever Abhishek smiled, I knew he is going to take the photo from his mobile:).
Roshan is a lovable grandchild who takes everything so sportingly, even the children born and brought up in India are not so accommodating.
Liked the shots of....statue of liberty in chandni chowk,
Bittu eating jalebi in times square.
and the song...genda phool
and in the actors..Abhishek, Sonam and Divya dutta, felt very sad to see Atul kulkarni in such a bad role, I liked him very much in Satta.
This is directed by Mani shankar..no wonder its so interesting, i still remember his earlier...16TH DECEMBER. Its a very different type of movie....This is the story of a Mukhbir...mole....how they are made and how much danger they face, and their mentors also put their life at stake for them.
Kailash( Sameer Dattani) is a Mukhbir, recruited by intelligenc officer..Om puri who is an honest , hardworking officer, its different the way he recruited him as is explained by him that all the mukhbirs are made that way only.
Once Sameer a boy of 18 gets arrested for some crime he didnt do even, and he is all alone in this world, and Om puri leaves him no option..either go to jail or become his informer and then he is trained well. But then Om tries always his best to save him in all tricky situations, and ultimately dies in saving him because his wife took a promise from him not to let kailash get killed, as many of his informers have been.
Then Life ofSameer forms the story..how he goes thru everything..he wants to get out, but once Ompuri is killed he gets a new resolve to avenge his death and goes there willingly with a new mentor..Rehman(Sunil shetty) another upright officer. and then starts the killings, betrayals by govt. officers..the story is chilling at times but very gripping.
and the end saves it from being morbid.
Great movie with great actors, really wonder why didnt they publicise it well.
