This is rural ‘Hum Aapke Hai Kaun’ (‘HAHK’). Sweet, syrupy and ‘old - world’. It painstakingly salutes a period gone by and a time freezed to nostalgia. Many may connect either directly or by some remote connect.

Some golden rules of our cinema: triangles are sad, quadrangles are bitter; when love cannot find solutions, cancer is an effective alternative remedy; just like all glitter is not gold, all gloss is not happiness.

Debutant hero seems to have the genes in the right place and lives up to the family repute. He is promising. Otherwise the visit to the film is as pleasant and welcome as having to go to a nursing home.

A short crisp film built around an interesting premise. So surely you know very early (a) that ticket will be easy to get and (b) the film has its genesis outside of Tollywood.

Only noise, no great music - Like the tragedienne, the romanticist, the romantic, the angry young man and the anti-hero, the musical stereotype is not a Tansen or a Shankara Sastry.

Can you imagine a heady mocktail of stylised Urdu and fizz-filled Punjabi? That is exactly what Mudassar Aziz offers you. Talk India – Pakistan, we invariably talk of either war or cricket and one of the dullest cricketers (albeit with commitment) was another Muddassar.

God gives us relatives while we choose our friends. This relative is no blessing. He is a joke of a curse. In an unbelievable 150 minute ordeal dealing with poor jokes and formula- ridden situations, the film is filled with pjs aplenty.

It is difficult for a filmmaker to outdo Gulzar in the craft of filmmaking. Technology and cinematography are poor alternatives to a strong script and a sensitivity to deal with a script.

What makes the lead actors take a romantic script even in their 50s is no credit to a social order that accepts middle-age romance. It is the fan following.

‘Traffic’ is a salute to this human spirit. Cinematically told with the right mix of drama through a terse script it leaves us with a feeling that all is not lost, yet.

Most importantly it (the film) revisits the premise that a child is the unfulfilled dream of an adult. It salutes the parent not for egging the child to fulfil her dreams but for nurturing her child as her dream.

So we have the guys and gals beating up people, talking as harshly as one can conspiring to do away with people with more ease than cooking a new dish for the festival. People here roam around with glass hearts or hammers and live in glass houses but do not care a damn.

Every star goes through this: The itch to take on a role that is larger than life. Tollywood is replete with examples of the stars who bank on scripts that believe in excesses.
