This one stays in your mind. For much longer, after the end credits. You have no idea what just happened but when you look back, the whole thing falls into place beautifully. This one makes you do a lot of work. It doesn’t spoon feed you a single thing.

I remember after watching Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, I was wondering how it would be if someone in India made a movie like that. And now, Vishal Baradwaj has just done it. Don’t miss it.

Watch out for that scene where Charlie, played by an unbelievably awesome Shahid Kapoor, guitar in hand,  looks down upon every kamina in the movie and says, “tum bale kutte kitne bade kamine ho….!”

  1. Sorry about hogging another comment space.

    Have you watched this short film called “Blood Brothers” directed by Vishal Bharadwaj?
    (*ing: Siddharth Narayanan, Ayesha Takia and Pawan Malhotra) for the Bill Gates and the Mira Nair foundation. It has cinematography by Guillermo Navarro (Oscar Winner-Best Cinematography for the Mexican film Pan’s Labyrinth).

    You can watch it here:

    Or download from here:

    Adi: Thanks a lot for those links! I didn’t even know about this.


  2. brilliant film!

    you are welcome. Do check out the other short films made by Santosh Sivan, Farhan Akthar and Mira Nair on the same website. I personally liked Vishal’s and Farhan’s.


  3. I liked the movie despite the poor audio/ video quality in a run-down theater. And I agree that the movie does resemble a Guy Ritchie work. Kinda like a cross between Snatch / Lock, Stock and a good Hindi caper like Johnny Gaddar.
