Katiyabaaz powerless

What if I told you I watched a much talked of documentary this week and it left me with a feeling of contentment that only the most entertaining masala movies have managed to give me, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you I watched a documentary this week that had a plot much thicker than most of movies we churn out regularly, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you it has a lead that is as flamboyant, as expressive and as layered as the greatest heroes we have seen on celluloid, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you it has an antagonist in the form of a powerless bureaucrat who is only trying to do her job to the best of her abilities, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you it has a soundtrack that’s so riveting you want to hear it on loop, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you the movie is better looking than many of our big-budget blockbusters, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you the makers manage to evaporate the line between reality and fiction in a way I have never seen before giving us moments of impossibly unconscious emotions, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you the movie has won numerous accolades across the globe, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you that it is being released by Phantom Films this Friday, will you go and watch it?

What if I told you I personally guarantee you will have a lot of fun watching it, will you go and watch it?

And if you don’t even then, shame on you for dissing on Indian cinema. At least give this gem a chance.
