Buddha In A Traffic Jam is a flawed step in a new direction for Indian Cinema. Not many movies can boast a release amongst so many protests against it. Sadly, the protests only created a hype that movie fails to live up to. It's not a bad film, and it tries hard to get it point across, but it takes itself too seriously, and the its dialogues end up being corny, rather than clever.
Arunoday Singh is a student in a prestigious business school. He's a confident guy who's never afraid to speak his mind, or organize the occasional protest, when the situation demands it. His Professor Anupam Kher constantly engages his students to open their minds and think outside the box. When Arunoday thinks of an idea to help the professor's wife struggling pottery business, it's flat out rejected. Confused, Arunoday begins digging, and what he finds isn't a pretty sight at all.
BIATJ is an interesting film at the very least. The oft ignored threat of Naxals has been brought to light in a very public manner. It's fault lies in the fact that it's trying too hard, and for a movie that depends a great deal on its characters to push the story forward, this isn't a flaw that can be swept under the rug easily. It's characters and their motives aren't really relatable, despite being mostly well acted. Give BIATJ a watch if you're looking to try something new.
