attempt but a solid one!!!
friend, Revathy’s first directorial venture has received three
coveted awards including best English film and Shobana-best
actress, and Beena Paul-best editor in the 49th National film
amazing movie…made with exotic spices and enough salt!!! After
watching “mitr”, I want to congratulate this awesome team, most
of them first timers creating waves even after five months of
its release. An-all-women-crew first for Indian cinema had a terrific
forty-five-day shoot in the US had their setbacks to share but
most importantly ended up as Winners!!! Their baggage reached
late, expensive camera lenses were lost, had delays because of
torrential rains in California but that did not matter when it
comes to delivering the final output…
”Mitr” has very well researched and implemented script with good
cast…that’s enough for a movie to click… when there is a depth
in everything, you can not ask for more…these days there are many
movies hitting the market branded “movies for the desis” but fails
to impress!!! There is a flaw in the selection of main leads or
dialogues or screenplay or editing…and the list goes on…but this
one has excelled in all the major departments.
of the dialogues that are fired on time are “is it some boyfriend
now?” “is there somebody else?” “you tell me!” etc., shows a tinge
of tremendous maturity and most of the dialogues are used on a
daily basis in north America and whoever lives in this part of
the world can relate to the subject well.
Teamwork seems to have paid off and of course never-say-compromise
attitude towards overall quality makes “mitr” interesting to watch!!
Classic shobana gave-away-her-best in each and every frame and
some of the frames has three to four gamut of emotions flat like
a combo deal. Her second innings seem to have started with a THUD…
friend" is going to be screened at Filmi-2002 (aug 16-18) in the
3rd Annual South Asian Film Festival at Harbourfront centre, Toronto,
Canada and I wanna watch it again on the B-I-G-S-C-R-E-E-N!!!
Great Experience atleast for me to watch it this way A-B-R-O-A-D!!!
well done Revathy and crew!!! It’s an impressive show!!!
