I think I agree with whatever you've written here. Btw, the Yash Raj promo is a teaser of their new Youth Films division. Can be found online.
Man! I was waiting for this.. lady.. you just saved me pain worth 130 bucks..!
How I have been waiting for this review.. I was sure that post-Bheja Fry Vinay would be back with a bang.. and this story is something I had thought of for making a short film.. would be amazing to see it being translated onscreen.. that too by Vinay..!
Thanks a lot for the review..!(Will post opinion after I've been to it.)
I used to write for this movie review site started by one of my friends.. http://www.themovieanalyst.comAnd as is.. I am very passionate about movies... especially the offbeat ones... and so am often biased.. so before writing reviews for that site I used to read your reviews and IMDB user comments to neutralize whatever bias I have for a movie.. :D
And I think I agree with Prashant... while we must applaud the movie for its originality.. we must not call it a masterpiece if it has flaws... it is doing injustice to movies which deserve to be called masterpieces.. something like 'Pather Panchali' or 'Pyasa' or 'Satya' or 'Saaransh'....
This movie could have been taken to a different plane altogether had the director been wise enough to make this movie taut..
That is the reason perhaps why everybody is debating over how many stars this movie must get...
Anyway, as you and Sakshi believe.. To Each His Own... :D
Take care and keep churning out the reviews...
p.s.: Can we have more English reviews...? I came here looking for some of them and didn't find any.. :)
I have been reading WOGMA(and referring it to people since a long time..) and this might be the first time I am commenting on one of your reviews..
I love movies.. watching them.. and occasionally making a short one too... and A Wednesday was one of those movies that I wait for... movies like Khuda Ke Liye, Mithya, Khosla Ka Ghosla... movies which don't have big budget production houses.. and which don't have the 'I-don't-give-a-damn-about-the-character' actors..
But I found it quite disappointing...
I agree that 'brave' movies like these have to be lauded... the fact that such movies and directors find support in multiplex audiences and production banners is appreciable.. but I believe that just because a movie is brave.. doesn't make it a good movie...
The movie has too many cliches... a room full of techies who turn together on hearing a phone call... a young hacker talking to his girlfriend in front of the SP..(not to forget the false accent..)... A cop who beats another cop but the media doesn't arrive(when you show that the media is sick... how can you overlook this..)...The intelligence people are busy changing wallpapers and refreshing their desktops..(whatever happened to details..)..
The second half of the movie is speedy.. and the supporting actors(the cop who wrote Nasir's FIR.. the Muslim don...The minister...) are all good..
Naseer is the best part of the movie... his acting.. his voice.. his lines.. are just perfect... (I remember cursing Khuda ke liye for its shoddy supporting actors and flaws in the script.. till Naseer appeared on screen and his speech that gave goosebumps..) His is one role that is perfect in this movie...
But I believe Anupam Kher overdid his part... some parts of the movie are simply unbearable.. there are sharp cuts... when Anupam shouts at his two commandos.. it makes a sorry scene rather than a stong one..(my personal opinion..)...
On the whole I believe.. A Wednesday was a nice movie.. must watch.. but lets not overlook its flaws...
Keep up the good work...
(I used to write short reviews for some time on one of our sites.. http://www.themovieanalyst.com... but I read your reviews to neutralize my opinion on any flick...)
