Review - Mithya

Writing review for a movie like Mithya is a tough task for me. I am not sure how far I will be able to keep the critic cap over my head. But as the saying goes well started is half done. Ok..

Shot purely in and around Mumbai, Mithya is one of the finest parallel cinema produced. Before reaching the cinema hall I had an idea that it was one of the best stories available with the director and I now stand as a testimony to the same. Rajat kapoor has done a brilliant task in approaching the movie with this angle.The legacy of Raghu Romeo and Bheja fry remains intact with this yet another splendor effort.

Ranveer shorey in as VK, is one of those theatre artists who is chewing hard nuts to make it big in the bollywood. He has a penchant for acting and approaches the work with sufficient diligency. But the going gets tough and he doesnt gets a chance for any good role; instead becomes part of the gang war between two gangs when he is unwinding himself with a deadly combination of sutta and a quarter sitting in Marine Drive.

His face resembling a Don's face , gets him into a position which he prima facie thinks as a lifetime role. But no sooner he gets into the meat of the role, does he recognizes the intricacies involved in reaching the acme in the performance. He 'd rather step down and lead the same mundane life he was living, given a chance. But the bird was already out of the cage. Willy-Nilly, he had to lead his life in this way compromising with his natural way of speaking, to match it with the "played " don's voice.

Finally, he gives up and plays certain ideosyncracies of his natural character to make the game a mudpot. The cat is out of the bag and something happens that everybody catches the point that VK is the DON - Raje, only by face. VK is thrashed deservingly for playing with the sentiments of the Don's family and left for dying his natural death.

Before all this drama VK gets acquainted to the struggling actress Sonam( Neha dhupia) which graduates to love in due time.

In the end the couple dies and world runs as usual. So it can be called a Love story.

Ranveer shorey is up to the mark in getting into the skin of character. This performance is as good as his performance in Traffic Signal by Madhur Bhandarkar. Naseruddin shah surprisingly is first time in a role where audience could have any actor for playing the role. Neha dhupia as well, as expected is doing nothing remarkable and could have many substitutes. The dialogues are very good and there is hardly any scene in the movie which public would not like to appreciate.

all in all a must watch from my side.

My rating for the movie -- 4/5.

Happy watching !!!
