Not A Love Story - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Superlative performances hook you into a disgusting story that comes from newspapers despite RGV going even crazier with his camera and sound departments.

Plot Summary

A fist fight that Robin (Deepak Dobriyal) gets into turns into a murder and Anusha Chawla (Mahie Gill) becomes his accessory to murder. Quickly they have to come up with an ingenuous way to get rid of the body and evidence.

What Worked

  • The titles had good visuals.
  • The turn that the Rangeela song takes at the end of the film.
  • The fact that a woman had women's posters in her room.
  • Deepak Dobriyal's entry into Mahie Gill's apartment. Loved the performances and the editing in that sequence.
  • Robin's contemplation on how to handle the situation.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The titles had a song with awful lyrics playing in the background.
  • The camera hovering around a hanging bra. What is this? RGV's way of scandalizing us?
  • The attention paid to RGV's own Rangeela in the beginning of the film.
  • The way the music gave away that something not-so-nice is going to happen soon.
  • How come there was smoke coming out of stuff that was burnt days ago.
