Review: Shaitan

What a load of bull. Does it speak to a generation younger than mine? Maybe.

So it is then an official teen movie? Should have been.

If Rajeev Khandelwal had not come in when he did, my seat would have been empty. He is a powerhouse in the movie and the single reason why I stuck it out till the end.

What a, what a , big fat load of bull the movie is.

The movie has nothing to say. Not a thing. It is an exercise in, I am not sure, in something like, say, futility. Or, hep-ness of the young crowd, with hummers and money. Except none of the actors look or act like they are rich kids. Crazy kids, sure. Middle class, rebels, whose way to be cool is to have skull tattoos, double sure. But rich kids? In Mumbai? Doubtfull.

Anurag Kashyap’s idea of ‘cool’ is not only getting old but also getting very tiring. Bad, bad acting, zero presence of the actors. I always maintain that its easy to act mad. And that’s all most of them have to do.

Rajeev Khandelwal is exemplary.

Movie making = bad. Bejoy Nambiar is not going to give good movies to us.

However, all movies are good movies to have around. So its one for the count.

Some images of the madness
