The Attacks of 26/11 - Preview

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

The Attacks of 26/11 tries to tackle two questions - Who are these terrorists? And can we face their terror with anything but helplessness? A little tact, a few fumbles. A little beyond the obvious, a few facts edited/changed.

I find it very difficult to trust Ram Gopal Verma anymore. Despite an intriguing trailer and an engaging first seven minutes of The Attacks of 26/11, I don't feel like raising my hopes of liking a RGV product. I have to admit this is far more about his earlier films than it is about the promotional material of this film.

Also, there is this nagging feeling that I don't want to see a movie yet about how my dearest Bombay was held at ransom. Much less when the narrative seems to be embellished with songs.

I shudder at the thought of everything being over-dramatized, which is obvious even in the camera work and background score of the first seven minutes. And this is despite feeling some relief after having watched them. Maybe super-low expectations is the key here.
