Wow. So this has to be one of the most unexpected movie experiences in years.
Irritated, bored & definitely pissed off, I headed off to a cinema hall I'd never go to because Maazii is not playing anywhere close to my vicinity (which has 5 multiplexes & 1 single screen). Assuming I'll just waste few hours I sat in but was quite dumbfounded when I came out with quite an awesome viewing experience.
Maazii is that lovely film that no one will watch & never give a chance to.
Lets dive in. The film starts off with a bang in one of the most promising opening sequences I have seen in recent times. Tarun is a small town florist who along with his wife & kid, live in the hills. A turn of events makes him the toast of his town, but much to his dismay.
He kills 2 thugs attempting to rape someone but little does he know that the fame he will receive is going to end up haunting him.
Maazii means the past & thats what exactly catches up with our protagonist, turning his life into a frenzy & dragging his family in it as well.
From the word go, the film draws you in & spins a thrilling vortex that makes for a brilliant first half. The second half too is taut & from Mussorie to Meerut, the texture of the film makes for some great visuals. A shoddy climax kind of ruins the fun of an otherwise enthralling film.
The background score coupled with a few decent tracks that havent been marketed, keep you engrossed & the actors ably support this venture.
Director Jaideep Chopra delivers a winner all the way in what could classify as the most poorly marketed "good film" since Manorama: Six feet Under (remember that Gem).
I cant stress enough as to how surprised I am because having negative expectations has only helped my cause. I urge one and all to go watch this or atleast buy a DVD whenever its out. A tiny little film that needs support & should have had it. Even with all its flaws, its a worth a watch.view less
