Yeh Saali Zindagi (Hindi)
Release Date:February 04, 2011
Arun (Irfan Khan) has to save Preeti (Chitrangda Singh), the woman he loves. But for this, firstly, he has to save the man Preeti loves â€“ Shyam, the future son-in-law of a powerful minister. Meanwhile time is running out for Kuldeep, a young gangster who is on his last job. As his wife threatens to walk out on him completely and begins to suspect that she is going into the arms of another man. The job has gone haywire as Kuldeep is still not aware that the ministerâ€™s daughter is off and now she doesnâ€™t care whether Shyam lives or dies and more importantly neither does the minister who Kuldeep hoped would pay the ransom! The film rides a roller-coaster towards a shattering climax where everyone has to fend for life and love
It's quirky and funny. It's twisted and largely unpredictable. It's pacy and just the right amount of overwhelming. It is dark and carries off a style of its own. Frequent flashbacks make whacky situations even more intriguing. And Irrfan Khan and Chitrangda Singh are as reliable as ever in keeping your eyes glued to the screen when they are on. Alas, this is also accompanied with some silly animation, choppy flow and too many characters with almost none developed in detail. And yet, it is something you should watch, if not immediately, in the future for sure.
Yeh Saali Zindagi is an apt representation of the misdirected new wave in Bollywood. A wave where gloss overshadows meat. A wave where aping the west superficially is fast establishing itself as a habit. A wave where the usage of swear words at â€œstrategicâ€ points is seen as a sureshot way to making the unexposed audience like your film. This is a wave eating itself from within and its saddening to see a veteran like Sudhir Mishra succumbing to it.
First the good : great story-line, interesting characters, competent acting, apt dialogue. There are lots of characters here, and each of them gets his/her own back-story; they are built up as real, flesh-and-blood people with their own little quirks and problems – bravo ! Irfan Khan and Saurabh Shukla are outstanding. Sushant Singh is wonderful; in him evil has a very middle-class face. Chitrangada Singh is good as a wishy-washy woman who doesn’t know where her heart is.
Now, for the flaws. While the direction is passable, “Ye Saali Zindagi” does flag a bit; I’m going to blame the screenplay. This film could have moved faster, been shorter, and a more condensed version of events wouldn’t have hurt. . .
yeh saali zindagi dis years best movie sum thing different has done Sudhir mishra from his last movie's Dharavi,chameli, main zinda hoon and Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi.What works here is the writing, especially the deliciously wicked dialogue written by Manu Rishi and Sudhir Mishra.The characters of this movie find themselves riding personal roller coasters that twist around each other and make the viewers exclaim with the sheer exhilaration of the combined, muddled and super-thrilling experience. The dilemmas are ironic, the emotions are rippling, the deaths are light, tension is pleasing and the humour is instant.All the characters look real and full of life and laughter.
MUST WATCH....DIS CHABUK MOVIE.......
