Talvar cuts the throat of Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon…  

Friday, October 2, 2015

Verdict: 6.2 /10

How legend falls, I have seen it through Talvar which creates the publicity blitzkrieg after yelling so much about Kurosawa’s ‘Rashomon’ that defines the nature of investigation from different perspectives… Talvar is also recounting the different versions of explanation of the most famous and complicated murder case “Aarushi Talvar” but fails to convince of the version which influences me to think in a way Director wants to show… I am amazed to see the publicity attempts to cater audiences from indirect influences, before the release of Talvar they announced that In Toronto International Film Festival 1300 tickets had been sold within an hour, here we are assuming that O My God they are more sensible than us and it must be the film of its kind… The best investigation film ever made in Indian Panorama whether their sensibilities were shaken or not, mine was shuddering.

Wobbling started from very beginning, establishing the investigation agency/person and in all likelihood Irffan Khan is going to crack this case but cliff is not straight so it took almost 30 minutes to take some decent fly but Director must be in the mood to reject any other theory other than what 1st CDI concluded which is just not acceptable. That shows the psychological architecture of a writer who just can’t stay as a natural person, his arguments already defines his believes and disbelieves. Writer is arguing with his own morality, he somehow is unable to convince that this is case of honor killing, her parents must not be a culprit. 

Some of the good performances and light punch lines makes this film alive otherwise execution fails to stand on incidences, decelerate the vigorously running plots, but here they are, showing the repetitive images and points just to prove the idea of Rashomon. I must say whoever have seen this Akira’s masterpiece definitely has similar point of view.       
Suspect Neeraj Kabi manages to deliver some good moves, even Konkona Sen Sharma performs well but not at all memorable, Irrfan Khan again hits the bulls’ eyes with his flawless acting who is solving this double homicide puzzle which created a ripple around Indians.  

Again this is a Vishal Bhardwaj’s presentation, just like his earlier babies this one is of the same track of being a noir, arranging natural lightning patterns, not getting political just showcasing corruption in departments and how they support each other to save their own asses.

But don’t be afraid, just go and watch for Aarushi Talvar, story deserves to be known.
