Its been more than couple of weeks when i watched Being Cyrus.
I didn’t find anything special in it, so prefered not to write any review on it.
But suddenly this film is getting popular..
Its grossing more than other english movies and is hit outside India.
I would have like it if it had come before 1-2 years.
It is a dark multiplex movie with a twist in the end.
But apart from good cinematography, there was nothing which impressed me.
Neither so called ‘dark humor’, nor so hyped Saif’s acting..
Anyways, my friend Abhijeet has managed to write a nice review on Being Cyrus.
Check it out..


Being Cyrus

Cast : Saif Ali Khan, Nasseruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Manoj Pahwa
Some movies have to be seen to believe how good they are . Being Cyrus falls in that category , the layers of the story peel off slowly and slowly and every time you see something more interesting coming your way.
Suave and polished Cyrus follows his soul into Dinshaw Sethna’s dilapidated house in Panchgani.
"Every happy family is happy in the same way, but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own." – Leo Tolstoy says in Anna Karenina. Sethna’s are its perfect example and Cyrus is there to exploit their special way.
Good screenplay , good dialogues and perfect casting make the movie a treat to watch. Saif , Naseer , Boman sparkle in this dark tale of wit. Direction of the debutante Homi Adjania is neat.
But the surprise package of movie enters just before the intermission . Navneet Bubbly (Manoj Pahwa) , the neighbourhood cop who is all out to rid world of the crime or crime of the world , all in same breath . He and his assistant Thambe tickle your " disallocated " funny bone right down to the pelvic region. Pahwa who has been hugely popular as Bhatia in TV serial Office Office is the pitch perfect with all of his nuanced , subtle and understated dialogues.
Go, watch and fall in love with Sethna family and with their secrets , that’s my advice.
PS : At the end of the game both the King and the pawn go into the same box.( Loved this quote and its use in the story)
