Haraamkhor - Wait, have you already watched OK Jaanu? If the answer is negative, then don't hesitate to give this one a try. This is unique and true to its face unlike other flicks. This 94 minute long film, directed by Shlok Sharma, released after being delayed for 2 years. Nawaazuddin is the show stealer which is nothing new. His character of is simply amazing and very realistic. The rustic setting and excellent background score deserve mention. What's most interesting is Sharma's unique direction. Really, he is a gem. Bollywood is thirsty for talents like him. Shweta Tripathi is very convincing as Sandhya Sharma and seriously, no one could've done it better. All the child actors have done their jobs excellently. Their performances are something to watch out for. The 'Shaktimaan' boy will tickle your funny bone every now and then during the first half. The biggest plus point of the film is its theme- it portrays the love triangle of a teacher and two of his students. It deals with a serious issue but never gets too serious and that really works for the film. Who said it's slow paced?
It's more than just slow paced but that is quite apt for a movie like this. One of the most well crafted scenes is the pre-interval one. 'Genius is knowing when to stop' and Shlok scores big in this department. Dialogues are excellent and so are the dialogue deliveries by all the actors. This internationally acclaimed movie, though not everyone's cup of tea, is a MUST watch.
Note :- Thinking why I didn't write much about Nawaaz? Well, undoubtedly he is the BEST and we all know that. He doesn't need to be applauded every time.
Warning :- NOT recommended for Indian audience, though it is a realistic portrayal.
