Gayab: Frustrations get Power

I went this movie as its from Ramu?s (Ram Gopal Verma) camp who has produced and directly almost all films with high quality and uniqueness. Under his roof, Prawaal Raman had directed earlier ?Darna Mana hai? which was an extra-ordinary and excellent film which had a lot of innovation content. He stretched one of the stories to make this film, but he could not do justice with it. The biggest pitfall is that there was not enough content put in the film and there were several repetitions and redundancies.

Earlier some films have been made on similar lines. ?Hollowman?, ?The invisible man? and ? Mr. India? are some of the mentionable ones.

But still it?s watchable. All have acted well especially Vishnu (Tushaar kapur) fits perfectly well in the skin of the character; the character of a frustrated youth who have a much oppressed personality who is immaterial to anybody and who fails in every sphere of life. Everybody makes fun of him and takes his undue advantage. He reflects the weak personality of his father (played by Raghuveer yadav) who does not dare to speak against his excessively vocal wife (played by Rasika Joshi) who is in charge of the family. The fact, that Vishnu had undergone to such ill-treatment since his childhood and been devoid of mother?s love, justifies the weak personality of Vishnu. Raghuveer yadav is one of the finest actors of hindi film industry and delivered here same performance. Rashika is over-toned but still ok.

Vishnu breaks down when he is insulted publicly by boyfriend ( Raman Trikha ) of his love interest ( Antara Mali). His love interest is actually infatuation which he is breeding since his childhood as a neighbor. Again the same psychology works here. He remains unattended by his mother, so he seeks love outside ( This thing is not stated in film).

Antara has done her job beautifully well. She portrayed character of a modern rational and glamorous girl. She looks quite sensuous in this film as opposed to her earlier films like ?Mein madhuri dixit banana chahti hoon? and ?Company?. Camera angles and costumes add to her sensuality.

Raman as her boyfriend has also fulfilled the demands of story.

Some scenes of the film are very realistic. One of them was when auto driver threatens and fools Vishnu to get money. It happens everyday on Indian roads where it doesn?t matter who is responsible for a road accident but one who is dominating and powerful intimidates weaker one.

The film shows most of the possibilities a person can go for if he becomes invisible. But this character is not Spider-man who uses power with responsibility but instead misuses it to fulfill his frustrations and make others life thus becoming a menace for society.

Music is average. Background score is not impressive, especially when we compare it with Prawaal?s earlier film ?Darna M H?.

Film is quite humorous and funny at places but could not maintain it throughout.

Overall this film can be watched once, but no great expectations to be carried.
