Ashdoc's movie review---Fireflies

Post by ashdoc on Sun Nov 02, 2014 3:56 pm

I went into the theater to watch Monica Dogra.....Ever since I saw her in 'Dhobhi ghat' I was hooked onto her sensuality , her anglicized manner of speaking hindi , her charm and her class....

But I came out of the theater wanting to see another beauty again and again in her next films---Shivani Ghai , who did the amazing feat of outmatching Monica in all those departments , though only by a slight margin....

For those interested in the male species ( women I mean ) , there are two goodlooking hunks too---for Vinod Khanna's son Rahul has turned out to be a fine looking man , and he is given serious competition by the man who plays his brother ( Arjun Mathur ).....

Acting wise , the film scores too---for all four have put up commendable performances , and are especially exquisite in acting out scenes of pain and anguish . 

But the mood of the film is dark , and the climax really does not lead anywhere....

Inspite of this , the film keeps you engaged throughout while you are watching it , and the sensuality of the women and chemistry they have with the men goes a long way in keeping you engaged....

It's a 'Hinglish' film---which means the characters come from hindi speaking backgrounds but speak in english in most parts of the movie...

The dark mood of the film is due to the fact that the relationships of both the pairs are not working out . And also due to the fact that the two brothers don't like each other , their animosity increased by a tragedy that occurred years ago . 

The two brothers don't like each other because Rahul is more successful , and what is worse is the fact that he is acid tongued and forever hurling taunts at his younger brother---just like he hurls at everybody else , especially his wife....

Yeah , Rahul's marriage with his wife is on the point of breaking down---and this fact puts him forever in a foul mood....until he meets Shivani Ghai , whom he had loved and lost earlier....
And old flames are rekindled....
Why wouldn't they be , considering the delectable charms of Shivani.....
But Rahul's wife , who is more upper class than Rahul , reacts with anger and refuses to divorce him---leaving him frustrated to the point of desperation....

On the other hand , younger brother Arjun falls like ton of bricks for the succulent charms of Monica Dogra , who exudes sensuality in every shot . But she has the baggage of the past haunting her , and his relationship with her goes nowhere....

Having reached the crossroads of life and going through difficult times , both brothers land at the same spot where the tragedy that created a rift among them had occurred years ago....

So what happens next ?? 
Can all the relationships which are breaking down everywhere in the film be re-established ?? 
Watch the movie for that....

The director creates a world of breaking relationships , and what doesn't help the cause of the relationships is the fact that the people involved are highly independent---though they all obviously need each other....

But the ending of the movie , though coherent , is not uplifting.....and is the weak point of the film....
The songs are in english too , but nothing great about the music....

What saves the film are the fine performances by the cast....

Verdict---Okay .
