There are movies that create a harakiri by including several plots in a single story. And that was what I thought about David when I first saw the trailer. But little did I know that it will turn out be a masterpiece form an eclectic genius named ‘Bejoy Nambiar’. There are sometimes during the movie that you will feel as if there disconnections within the sub plot but an exciting climax ensure that you will come out of the theatre completely satisfied.

The plot revolves around the story 3 Davids, in 3 different eras, in 3 different parts of the world but having similar fates.  The first David is a gangster in the 1970’s who works for a dreaded don ‘Ghani’ who also happens to be a father figure to him. David is fiercely loyal to his guru and will do anything for him, but there is an ugly truth behind him and that’s what David is searching for. The second David is an aspiring singer from a lower middle class family and is a day dreamer who loves though being notorious shares a great bond with his father. This David is on a mission to save him father who is a victim of a political vendetta.The third David is a Goan fisherman , a happy go lucky guy who falls for his best friend’s fiancé. With only 10 days left for his friend’s wedding he on his pursuit to win his love. A thread in common is the relation which the protagonists have with their father or father figures.

Neil Nitin Mukesh as the gangster revels in his role as a gangster, he looks handsome and has pulled of the best character of his acting career. Vinay Virmani who looked promising in the Speedy Singhs looks and acts better in this one. Vikram is like old wine , need I describe more. But if someone has really stole the show, then that is veteran actress Tabu, as Frenny, she really get under the skin of the character. The scenes involving Vikram and Tabu are awe inspiring. Isha Sharvani as the deaf and mute, Roma acts more beautifully than she looks. All other characters have given praiseworthy performances. I felt Lara Dutta could have done better.

As I have already mentioned Bejoy has mastered the art of making unconventional and out of the box movies.  He has showed a distinct story telling style with ‘Shaitan’ which he continues with this movie too. We need new directors like him to bring freshness into the stagnant bollywood culture which stupefies the current generation. The script is great and takes a dig at various sections of society and Indian’s general push over attitude. It also shows that even though time has passed, habits transcend generations. It’s a great topic for a sociology lecture.

The music and background score is apt for the plot that goes through different era. It tastefully depicts them and the picturisation is fantastic.

Some last few words, this is a movie that you shouldn’t miss it at any cost.

Thanks and Regards,
