A Wednesday - A must watch movie!

I watched this movie, 'A Wednesday' 5 days back. Even now I am thinking and talking about it! The story and the acting by all the actors, has moved me so much that I am asking whoever I meet, to see this movie!

Prakash Rathod (Anupam Kher) is the Mumbai Police Commissioner who is going to retire in a few days and when asked about the case he remembered as the best case he had handled, he narrates how the case started with just a call saying that 4 bombs have been planted in different parts of Mumbai. The caller says that, in return of 4 terrorists, the location will be informed. And the story begins....

When I first heard about this movie, I never expected much from it but believe me, this movie is really special for me. This is not the usual masala movie with songs & dance sequences. No female characters at all. No dramatisation of the story. No comedy track, nothing. This story shows a new way to handle terrorism, you can say.

Naseeruddin Shah, my favourite actor, as usual, has done his best. I am not familiar with Jimmy Shergill, but he seems to be a good actor. I have seen Aamir Bashir in some serials and he is good. The girl who acted as a TV anchor was funny, I thought, but she too had done her job well.

Remember to watch the dialogues, esp. the last 15-20 mts. This is definitely a masterpiece which deserves at least to be nominated for an Oscar!

The movie is dangerously impressive.
Watched as a movie, it is lovely.But if someone is inspired by the movie (like the ones wo were inspired by Black Friday) and carries out the same, I think it'd be terrible

Shilpa, what you say is right! Thanks.

Ramesh: Yes, it is too good. I had not read the review and so I did not have an idea about the plot also. This is not a family movie, though no visible violence is there. Thank you.

::)), I really loved it, but now Shilpa's comment has given me a new perspective:)

This movie is too realistic. Hope no one gets inspired, as Shilpa said, Renu. Internet helps to learn anything, constructive or destructive. And movies like this - God!

Nice review Sandhyaji. Yes, Naseer Saab is exceptional, as usual, he lives in his role.

This movie highlights the plight of the common man in the terror struck world.

The twist in the movie is quite impressive.
