film is about a teenager Aditya(Aditya Seol) who lives
with his ageing grandmother in an apartment in Mumbai.
The grandmother, though very loving and understanding,
is not much of a companion to the growing boy. She is
lonely, and so is the boy, and they are lost in their
own worlds. As the grandmother grieves over her younger
son's departure, the boy's world is filled with a 28-year-old
woman (Manisha Koirala) who lives across their apartment.
He watches her with a telescope to that extent that
he synchronises his life with hers: eats when she eats,
sleeps when she sleeps and cries when she cries. But
the woman is unaware of his existence. He makes clumsy
attempts to steal her attention but in vain.
boy is jealous of her boyfriend (Ranvir Shorey of Channel
[V]), who visits her often. And one day he confesses
his love to her that he had been watching her and is
privy to her intimate life, leaving her stunned. But,
things do not end here.
an attempt to make the movie natural the director made
it boring and stale. Though the story can be narrated
in a decent manner with out the controversial scenes
the director seems to add them to attract the masses.
Manisha koirala looked fat and old with wrinkles around
her eyes. The only novelty in this movie is showing
Manisha with out make-up and in costumes that make her
look fat and ugly. Manisha seems to lost track of what
her body double is doing and what she is supposed to
portray about the character. Aditya Seal looked natural
and naïve for the teenage character. But his character
does not create any impression on the audience neither
empathy nor dislike.
movie stands between an art film and a mass film. People
who are lured to this movie because of the controversial
scenes will be bored with the movie and so does the
people who see it otherwise. The director starts the
movie on a note to deal with human relationships at
a higher level but he lost track of what he really wants
to portray. The director failed to establish the characters
in a way that the audience can empathize with it. As
a result in the end when the movie is over the audience
will be blank not able to perceive what they saw.
