In his second film, director Amit Masurkar is backed by Manish Mundra’s Drishyam Films, and this support clearly added uncommonness that is the banner’s patent thing to the directors interestingly nourishing film.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
The story is of a protagonist who believes in doing things by the book, but when it’s about elections in naxal-controlled area of Chhattisgarh, how can things be done by the book in an area of intense certainty. Also, how can a film that is a sort of political satire and set out of deep jungles be interesting?
And that’s what is different about the film.
Talking about democratic country, election misconduct whilst narrating a story of a common man with an interesting name and even more interesting thoughts, the whole film stands out to be effective because of 3 things.
First is the execution and treatment, the use of humor and intelligent writing in dialogues. Second is the characters that are nicely established and their performances. And third is the storytelling, the curiosity to decipher the climax of the film as it progresses makes Newton refreshingly ‘new’ and ‘ton’ interesting. Also, the film doesn’t waver in pointing out hard-hitting facts (or not, we can never ever decipher our system).
The film however, because of its deep setting and unusual presentation, will attract only the niches.
The cast is tremendous and so is their act. Pankaj Tripathi, when this actor adds his quirk to a role, something which very few actors can, that’s something truly wow. He can even bit off the intensity from as serious role without damaging the essence of the character.
Rajkummar Rao as Newton Kumar is amazing. The mix of hesitation and confidence he brings to this character is commendable. Anjali Patil as Malko is all natural and effortless. Raghubir Yadav as Loknath is great and convincing in his role.
