Bollywood News – Serious Men movie overview: Nawazuddin Siddiqui fools the world but wins our hearts in this caste-primarily based, smoke-and-mirrors game
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is now to Netflix what Shah Rukh Khan is to romance in Indian cinema. And whereas he does not have the identical impact or dish out the identical outcomes as SRK used to for nearly 20 years by spreading his arms, his final two efforts on the OTT platform, together with his latest launch, Serious Men (the earlier one being Raat Akeli Hai), aren’t solely amongst his higher Netflix films, but additionally amongst his higher ventures total. It pays by when you’ve got an skilled director like Sudhir Mishra in an excellent temper, who’s adept at dealing with idiosyncratic topics.
What’s it about
Ayyan Mani (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) a Dalit man, has all the time needed to punch a lot above his weight as a result of his caste, a lot in order that regardless of overreaching at his office, his Brahmin scientist boss (Nassar) will not even speak politely to him. All this takes a 360 diploma flip after his son (Aakshath Das) is each, who seems to he a genius albeit with an enormous secret that Ayyan is hellbent on concealing from the world.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is, as all the time, on hearth, respiration oxygen even into a few of Serious Men’s extra vapid scenes. He is excellently supported by Indira Tiwari and Nassar whereas it is heartening to see Sanjay Narvekar and Shweta Basu Prasad be given uncommon meaty roles in a Hindi movie. The shock package deal although is Aakshath Das, delivering arguably the greatest act by a juvenile since Zaira Wasim in Secret Celebrity (she was 17 then). Sudhir Mishra brings in all his experience to juxtapose casteism in opposition to a charade, performing a commendable tightrope act with Bhavesh Mandalia’s typically-tight-typically-messy screenplay whereas Alexander Surkala does an excellent job at capturing Mumbai’s contrasting socioeconomic canvas. Karel Antonin’s background rating, although nothing fancy, is serviceable. One of the best facet of the movie by is the way it depicts the nonetheless-related plight of the decrease castes in India and makes us ponder whether or not its mistaken of they resort to determined measures to hunt a greater future for his or her progeny.
The climax of Serious Men is just too tepid and handy to do justice to all the good work that preceded it. Additionally, its closing moments delve into that pseudo-mental, summary zone, with little or no relevance to the precise plot, of which Sudhir Mishra has been responsible of in the previous. Moreover, editor Atanu Mukherjee may have simply trimmed the movie by 15-20 minutes. Additionally, I am removed from a pleasure, but two intercourse scenes in what is basically a household movie have been utterly pointless and thrust in only for the heck of it.
Serious Men is a not-so-severe tackle a severe problem, introduced in a critically good method with some minor hiccups alongside the method. Give it a shot. I am going with 3.5/5 stars.
3.5 out of 5
