One movie that is apart from them is the one released recently "Mumbai Meri Jaan"
An excellent movie I must say. Its a story of how life changed for four people after the train blasts happened.
Theres no extravaganza on the part of the actors nor the storyline. Its just tight and gripping.
No preaching, no extra sentimental scenes to pull the audiences but a reality check on the people, society who undergo the trauma.
I cringe whenever people say that Mumbai ki spirit, they spring to life within minutes etc.. blah blah.
Its just that anywhere people would rarely care about those who suffer and in the media its only the moments frenzy that matters.
Since they dont cover the life after the initial day or two of the blast we would never understand how their lives are changed.
People like us who have amnesia about things we dont like tend to forget all about them in a couple of days and go about our work normally since it didnt effect us.
I hate the media bas***** who put up a mike infront of the crying people asking about their feelings.
Soha who plays the journalist, thinks its perfectly alright to do that kind of journalism until the tables turn and she is in the others shoes.
Its all about sensationalism, who puts up news first without any concern to the person next to you.
And there is KK Menon who is a hindu who tends to believe that every muslim is a terrorist. (I have come across people like this if not to that extreme)
Reality is not the same. It dawns on him slowly that they are people very much like everybody else, have their own lives.
Good or bad exists irrespective of religion. Its the people who tend to go one way or the other.
Madhavan, who is an idealist who wants to stay in India irrespective of having offers to live abroad is shocked with the blasts.
Aftermath he is afraid to even board a local train. At one time he contemplates to move abroad and escape only when it dawns upon him that life isn't free of terrorism anywhere. There's 9/11 too.
And finally Irfan Khan is a complex character. He's a Tamilian who works in Mumbai.
Since he's rejected from the posh malls in Mumbai he tries to take revenge on them by making fake bomb scares.
Only when the life of a person falls in danger does he realize how extreme his actions are.
Thus everybody's life is effected but eventually people do move on.
Excellent performances by everybody. A must watch movie...
There rarely are good Indian movies, even the bollywood ones. (This is in my opinion)
