KURBAAN is bloody smart -- Rediff review

KURBAAN, the new fick starring Bollywood style diva Kareena Kapoor, Vivek Oberoi and Saif Ali Khan is finally here. Here's the 'Kurbaan' movie review for Indian movie buffs.


Bollywood movie KURBAAN review by

Rediff says, "To the new breed of slick, sharp Hindi-film directors, please welcome debutant Rensil D'Silva, who till the other day was best known as the guy who wrote Rang De Basanti"

For once here's a film that does not feel long despite the two hours and 40 minutes.

And if that's not enough to get you interested, here's the clincher. Kurbaan is bloody smart. In its taut screenplay, stylish photography and good performances by the cast, it keeps you engaged, does not insult your intelligence and avoids getting preachy.

And that's saying a lot for a film by a debutant director.

Kurbaan deals with a very loaded subject -- terror, Islam, America and the rest of the world. Something that a bunch of filmmakers have attempted in recent times, and there's more to come. But this one is executed like a classy Hollywood thriller, with some great moments of suspense, high drama, blood, gore and skin. And not to mention a delicious background score (Salim-Saulaiman) -- the icing on the cake.

Go watch Kurbaan, explore it, find your own points to agree, disagree, endorse, enjoy, debate and be angry about.

Either way, you definitely cannot walk out without the film leaving an impression on you. And a strong one at that >> [ Read complete review @ Rediff ]
