Bombay Talkies - 'Sabun ki shakal main, yeh to nikla keval Jhaag, Jhaag, Jhaag  Bhag bhag  away from the movie hall. The art of fooling the public with stories written on the back of a dinner napkin. Its not actually Art - It's a kind of Modern Art. All the critics will love and wah wah the movie since it deals with 'critically acclaimed' topics like Homosexuality and Cross dressing, however the movie goers become the suckers.

Four Frivolous tepid stories which have no head or tail. Ok the Actors did put in their best, but what do you do when you have slip shod stories made by directors who made silly slots created over weekend dinner and shot and completed on a Monday?

Part 1- Karan Johar - Topic Homosexuality - I cringed in my seat to see two guys kissing on the screen. I don't know how this kind of portrayal of love signifies '100 years of Bollywood'

Part 2 - Dipankar Banerjee - Dhakka Man - No plot - Just waste of 20 minutes.

Nothing to talk about

Part 3 - Zoya Akhtar - Had some hopes after interval with the Director of ZNMD but hopes crashed quickly with this silly Boy cross-dressing story. Again aimed at Critics and Cannes Film Festival

Part 4- Anurag Kashyap - Had lost all hopes by then  and surely the last part went deeper into the Abyss with the silliest of the stories on Murabba and Amitabh Bachan.


By the end I felt sick and disgusted and cheated with this pathetic collection of four poorly made stories. I had thought that four good directors coming together would create a good movie. Well they made the movie specifically for the Critics - Film FAIL awards- Cannes Film Festivals and such like places.

  • When directors fail to create popularly successful hit movies they turn to making such Art movies which resemble Modern Art - which no one understands but everyone pretends to like.

  • 1000/- bucks, .... wasted, I should have thrown it into a dustbin.... at least it would have saved me three hours of weekend night.
