“Sonali Cable is simple little film with an interesting plot that could have been brilliant. But, the average acting (except Anupam Kher's) and poor execution will just leave you feeling 'meh'.”

I would recommend Sonali Cable for the sheer audacity of the idea. For using the cable wali as the protagonist--an idea that is the stuff of an ethonographer's dream project. That fly on the wall that unpacks the Matryoshka that is home and community. For that episode where Smita Jayakar garnishes the curry as she dampens Rhea Chakraborty's Sonali passion with a toxic "be a sister to my son". And Raghav Juyal who just outshines everyone with his pluckiness.


Sonali is to that other Mumbai that Shruti Kakkar was to Delhi but thankfully her aspirations and ascent are not as sanitised as in BBB. And Sonali  Cable takes up the lynchpins that are Mumbai's street wars and those other West Bengalis. Sadly just as in Band Baja it all comes tumbling down when the earnest young woman succumbs to the Bittoos/ Rhagus of this world one night. Kiya yaar? 



I liked Sonali Cable for all the asides and not the whole. For the Orwellian nightmare that it sketches, for when Sonali steps across the foyer of Shine Inc and on to the shining image that is A, for Sonali's monologue for the Little Person towards the end, and for portraying death and dreams with a finesse I havent seen in a while dont want to give away the plot but when heartlines go offline BE PREPARED TO CRY.


But for everything else, you just wonder why?
