Akira

i saw Akira..because this was the only one availabe in the timings suitable to us.This is about a girl who sees some boys throwing acid on a girl for rejecting them, and wants to learn self defence, Her father(excellent cameo by Atul Kulkarni) encourages her, so when every girl wants to go to dance classes she goes to self defense and  becomes an expert and when she sees those boys again harrassing some girls she gives them a good fight, in this a boy wants throw acid on her, but she stops and it falls on his face and she is sent to a juvenile home..this is the first excuse, I dont know that in such a situation which court will find her guilty.
Her three years are wasted, so when she comes out she goes in her shell and try to study only , when they shift to Bombay with her brother,she is bullied and due to mistaken presumptions, a corrupt officer wants to kill her and puts her in mental hospital, where a mental patient helps her in getting out and otherwise,I dont know why that transgender was in mental hospital, he was quite able and good.
Then there is a heavily pregnant Inspector Rabia who is investigating the murder,I dont understand the logic to show her so pregnant..I mean she can walk or sit properly but she is sent to action..if they had given her a desk job, would have been more feasible..a very fine actress Konkona totally wasted here.
So now its left to heroine to do everything which she does..First half is ok but in the second half everything goes haywire. Anurag kashyap as the corrupt police officer is good.Only
if they had developed other characters also..
Amit sadh needed some more space.
Konkona needed a better character.
Sonakshi Sinha has done whatever she could in her half baked character.

i actually like Sonakshi for the first time in this movie. All her other films she just comes to dance and smile and mouth a few dialogues. I thought she did well in this movie.

Anurag i absolutely loved

Loco mente:It could have been a good and different movie.

Sandhya: yes, not worth it.

Sujatha Sathya:She did well, but what could she she do with an undeveloped role..and to make it complete, she needed the support of script, other character too.
