Hindi Movie: Black and White review
The director of larger than life movies like ‘Pardes’, ‘Taal’, ‘Kisna’, ‘Yaadein’ and many more has offered ‘Black and White’ which is surely different from his earlier ones. The story has a character Rajan Mathur played by Anil Kapoor who is a professor and his wife Roma, played by Shefali Shah is an activist live in Delhi. It is a boy named Numair Qazi who introduces himself as a victim of the Gujarat riot is given shelter in their house by the couple. They come close to this boy and they are totally unaware of the fact that the boy or Numair is actually a suicide bomber who is commissioned by a Muslim fundamentalist group. He has been assigned to make a blast near Red Ford on Independence Day.
Filmmaker, Subhas Ghai has given this movie an excellent feel with his amazing direction. The film has a well-crafted plot and as far the cinematography goes, Somak Mukherjee has done a fair enough job in capturing Delhi. The music of the film, which is given by Sukhwinder Shingh, although, is not extra-ordinary but it is not bad as well. Anil Kapoor certainly needs a pat for his excellent execution of Rajan Mathur, Shefali Shah has also portrayed well the character of the activist and has given a strong performance. Habib Tanvir as Numair Qazi has done a commendable job, and Aditi Sharma has also done a decent job. This dramatic-thriller is a courageous step taken by Ghai.
