It was Sunday evening and after few hours of reading as a case study, I decided to go for an evening walk. After coming home, I was willing to watch a good Hindi Movie. (free of cost-off course through Idiot Box)Sometimes I wonder why they call it an Idiot box anyway. I don’t know if it’s everybody’s experience or not, but when you have time and you want to watch something good, it decides to show programs of useless quality. (I guess due to this people started calling it an Idiot box)
Anyway, it was an exception today and there were few good movies to watch on TV. 1. Three Idiots (which I have seen from start to end for like millions of times and even studied it during my script sessions.) 2. Akshay Kumar;s Khiladi (good movie I must say, it was a good effort.) 3. Vinod Chopra’s PARINDA.
No need to say, I decided to watch Parinda and ther were several reasons for taking that decision. 1. Vindo Chopra’s awesome script and film making. 2. Madhuri Dixit. 3. Every character looks real in this film. Nana Patekar. I have great respect for him. If you want to see his real work, See Marathi Play “Purush”, Nana has played –ve role in it. Wonderfully played, what an actor and for that matter even I loved Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor in Parinda.
It was the first realistic Gangster film in Hindi Cinema. It’s a story of two brothers trapped in a Gang War. There struggle, family issues, Main Mafia Anna (played by Nana). Parinda was a critical and commercial success, and the official Indian entry for the 1990 Academy Awards.
I will recommend this film for everyone who is interested in seeing quality and serious film. I had a great time watching it and writing about it.
