SERIOUS  MEN - A NETFLIX FILM REVIEW BY NAVJOT

Tormented with his 'under-privileged' societal status, a father capitalizes on his son's newfound fame as a boy-genius. Little does he realize that the secret he harbors will destroy the very thing he loves the most.

 

STORY,  SCREENPLAY AND DIALOGUES

This one is based on a book with the same title.  The screenplay is written by  Abhijeet Khuman and Bhavesh Mandalia , additional screenplay is written by Niren Bhatt and Nikhil Nair. There are two words by which i can describe the screenplay  DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE.  Not many times do we come across different stories like these. The screenplay is very complex to write because  it is really challenging  but the writers write it as spreading butter on the paper.  The screenplay is engaging.  The dialogues are marvelous.

There are times when the film becomes slow but it doesn't affect its entirety.

 

PERFORMANCES.

 

1. Nawazuddin Siddiqui  shines as Ayyan.  He is supremely talented and he is signing good films that can do justice to his art. A role and a film like this is very difficult and challenging  but challenge is just cakewalk for this star.

 

2. Aakshath Das as Adi Mani is superb.  I've never seen a child actor as good as him. He is brilliant.

 

3. Indira Tiwari as Oja Mani is good her role is brief but she acts very naturally

 

4. Nassar as Dr Acharya is impactful.

 

5. Shweta Basu Prasad as a politician is very natural.

 

DIRECTION AND OTHER TECHNICAL ASPECTS

This film is directed by Sudhir Mishra and he definitely did justice to the book. The book has been adapted beautifully and he makes this world admirable.

 

FINAL VERDICT.

This film is different and it might not be everybody's cup of tea but this one surely deserves support and nominations in all the prestigious award shows and film festivals.

 

I'M GOING WITH 4 / 5
