Nearly anybody who has seen Ajeeb Daastaans can have one picture flash earlier than their eyes each time they consider the movie. That’s good from recall worth point-of-view however is an replusive sensation within the backbone for the recaller. It might have meant that it was a well-crafted scene. Sadly, it stayed with me as shock-for-the-sake-of-shock and thus turned a loss in an in any other case well-built up story.
The final movie comes as a breath of contemporary air–as contemporary as is Shefali Chhaya’s presence
Two different tales too take you aback by what the characters are prepared to do to get what they assume they deserve. Right here, nonetheless, if that additional twist was lacking it will have made the story peculiar and predictable. So, whereas the “additional” feels compelled it’s crucial too. Additionally, even when it didn’t work for me fully, I appreciated the hassle in making an attempt to make it completely different. In spite of everything, they had been aiming at making the tales ajeeb, bizarre, attention-grabbing.
The 4 Ajeeb Daastaans cowl a spectrum inside every of the various themes—infidelity, revenge, loneliness—to call a number of. The primary three movies even have a working theme of inequality, the resultant energy dynamics and the way they are often overturned. Possibly as a result of I’ve a below-average abdomen for gore, it felt like they took the “every particular person is the others’ toy” a bit too far. The theme that stood out for me although was the “odd sense of equity” that the tales conclude with. The culminations of the conditions aren’t flawed, however they aren’t proper both. They definitely hold you pondering for a bit.
Within the noir lot then, the final movie comes as a breath of contemporary air–as contemporary as is Shefali Chhaya’s presence. She has a pleasantness about her that it washes away quite a lot of the meanness you could have seen up to now. In fact, her character is actual and charming too. The quick stands due to how completely different it’s from the opposite three movies not solely as a result of it’s heat, but in addition as a result of it isn’t ajeeb in any respect. In the event you masks the particular wants a part of the story, it’s like every other romantic movie. However, it’s outstanding that it will nonetheless have labored—due to the performances, the manufacturing values, the music and lyrics, and naturally the dialogue.
The truth is, performances throughout the movies are on the mark, and a few of them attention-grabbing. From Fatima Shaikh taking part in a seductress to the suffering-yet-sure Konkona Sen Sharma you to even Nushrat Bharucha’s uneven try to play an underprivileged lady—the acts hold you engaged. Evidently, this noir movie revolves round ladies and that’s refreshing.
Ajeeb Daastaans is a few hours well-spent regardless of how uncomfortable it tries to make you with the evil ideas of human beings, if not the gross actions they really take.
