My favourite film from whatever i have seen in last few months. ❤️
Happy Mother's Day
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This could have been Barry, succession, fleabag, Atlanta, and the Bear if only that Bollywood-ass 9th episode didn't happen. And if only the 10th episode was more about fucked up reality than half-baked conversations.
I love fucked up, selfish, narcissistic, asshole, self-centered, problematic characters living in a fucked up world. It's just when you are relying on satire, you don't have to show an " excuse " for the character's actions. It could be subtle without rotoscoping on the excuse…
It was funny and enjoyable but i wish i could have give it the cultural appreciation which the people from those regional area has given. Most of the subtext flew over my head because of my lack of knowledge so not entirely on the film.
Then again i could relate to films like like jallikattu, Angamaly Diaries & We.Ma.Yau. despite being rooted to it's culture. For some reason this didn't work on me in many places.
Kinda frustrating how Indian writers can't write female characters unless it's a " female " centric film. AK suffers from same tragedy fortunately the execution of the plot itself was so brilliant that i can ignore other flaws. Even the runtime doesn't feel like too long.
Lmao i spent my 1/3rd of time to recognise that i have seen this film somewhere only to realise later on that it's inspired from Chinatown. Pretty solid adaption tho tbh.
Delightful. Movies like these went lost fr. Also we need more movies which doesn't follow 3 act structure ( kinda ).
