Shanghai Reviews

Whose progress ? Whose nation ?
Jun 10, 2012 11:00 PMRead
In the beginning of this movie, the cover page of a book written by a character of this movie( Dr. Ahmedi) is shown and the title of the book reads as - Kiski Pragati? Kiska Desh?( Whose progress? Whose nation?). And that's what this movie is all about. So many development projects have come and...Read More

Aag Lagai Toh Bana SHANGHAI! (Fire for A Shanghai)
Jun 09, 2012 12:44 AMRead
Straight talk. This is a director's film. Dibakar Bannerji lives his dream of creating a piece of cinema yet so realistic and out of life, set right in the middle of OUR lives, in OUR India. The dream doesn't come without a cost. The aam junta, who has put in the bucks will feel that their 'hero...Read More

Take a bow, Dibakar!

Leaving aside the fact that the film moves at an arguable pace, the film is a riveting yet subtle political drama. Even if the shock value that the film builds up to towards the end portions is predictable (you could smell it from a distance) it does make one sit up and notice, and does somethin...Read More


Dibakar Banerjee Ki Tum Jai Bolo Jai!
Jun 11, 2012 02:31 PMRead
Elections happen every now on then. A lot of things are promised to the junta by the netas but life is still as hellish as it was before. Many have promised to transform urban areas like Mumbai, Delhi etc into world class cities. Townships and mall are coming up providing the most modern ameniti...Read More

The New Shanghai of India!
Jun 10, 2012 12:48 AMRead
Sometimes some movies comes and make a mark, but sometime they made the mark solidly, this is certainly one of them, but its not like just punching in the face of government directly, but slowly and powerfully, it's not like 'Aakrosh' but it's like 'Page 3', and when it is based on true story th...Read More

A great political thriller by Banerjee
Aug 04, 2012 07:38 PMRead
Some five years ago, when I first saw Kosta Gavra's classic political thriller "Z" I thought it has all the ingredients to be made into Indian scenario. Even though the film is five decades old the scenarios fits into contemporary India. It digs into the political machinery and their double stan...Read More

A refreshing and nice movie after a long long time. I liked the movie as its nice with a social message. I liked the end a lot. Politicians should know that they cant cheat and get away with crimes. Emraan Hashmi, Abhay Deol and Kalki acted very well. Emraan proved his acting skills with this mo...Read More

A hard hitting take on politician-developer nexus!
Jun 19, 2012 05:10 PMRead
To those who may be wondering why this film is tilted ‘Shanghai’, jog back your memory to times when politicians promised to transform Mumbai into Shanghai. Set in a fictional Bharat-nagar which is effectively a metaphor for any large Indian city, the movie is a take on how common lives get affe...Read More

To transcend that city or to overtake it?
Jun 17, 2012 11:47 AMRead
Can the murder of an innocent man be excused if it will pave the way for a state's economic boom? Is the relocation of thousands of people from their original domicile justified in the name of progress? A theme can be transplanted onto a different time and place, but as long as the details of th...Read More

Stupendous performances lits up the screen
Jun 15, 2012 11:08 PMRead
Shanghai-The name of this movie wouldn't give you any hint as in what it has in store for you.Only when you pay a visit to theaters, it will become obvious to you.Though their is nothing spectacular about the plot with the twists that can be sensed before, the scintillating performance a...Read More

Shanghai - Bharat Mata Ki Jai Bolo !!
Jun 09, 2012 11:45 PMRead
Indian politics, be it from the independence era or the current scenario has been one of the favorite themes for film-makers. But, very few of them, ex. Prakash Jha & Anurag Kashyap have been able to do justice. Shanghai is one such challenging, yet brilliant attempt by Dibakar Banerjee.The ...Read More

India v/s Bharat
Jun 09, 2012 09:59 PMRead
Dibakar Banerjee has always made movies based in Delhi. Though all his movies have impressed, it seemed that he was comfortable in weaving characters based in Delhi. This time he weaves a story set in a fictitious town on Bharatnagar. And boy, does he make an impact.The 1st half looks a bit ...Read More

Movie got story and sense
Jun 09, 2012 09:04 PMRead
This is an absolutely not a entertaining movie. Kind of an art movie or documentary movie. Story is good, but boring in first half, very fast direction. The last 20 min is the life of the whole movie, revealing of secrets in last 20 mins. This was very much exciting and interesting. Acting of al...Read More

To watch this film take your brains with you...

A satire, yes Dibakar Bannerjee’s ‘Shanghai’ is a lampoon on the complex political system of the country that’s slaying our democracy. It shows the real India and what’s hampering our growth.The background score gets too loud at places. Music is okay, the lyrics making it stand out. Scene tr...Read More

Leaving aside the way that the film moves at a questionable pace, the film is a riveting yet unpretentious political dramatization. Regardless of the fact that the stun esteem that the film develops to towards the end segments is unsurprising(you could notice it from a separation) it makes one s...Read More
