I know many of you have just clicked on the title just to see why I chose to write such an abrupt title of this post. Well, the reason is the current scenario of Indian Audience’s choice. Last evening, when I entered cinema hall, I witness the audience of 10 or 12 people. Even after reading reviews and everything, people will still wait for ‘entertaining’ movies rather than going to watch such movies that needs to think from the depth of your heart.
Coming to the movie. ‘Waiting’ is a kind of movie that you’ll either love or hate to the core. Movie starts slowly with Naseeruddin Shah building the plot of visiting the hospital to see his wife who is in coma since last 8 months. Naseeruddin Shah has his own Aura of making you believe what he is enacting. Once he appears on the screen, you are forced to forget everything else and fall in place where he wants you to take. Hospital suddenly gets alive in your surroundings. The beeping sounds, closing and opening of doors, doctors and nurses running around the corridors and the ‘Waiting’ of the near and dear ones of the patients.
For me the surprise factor was Kalki Koechlin. She holds you on to her character. The chemistry of both the lead actors, the conversation between the both and the brilliant showcase of generation gap is something that makes this movie an exceptional watch.
One thing that will remain in you after walking out of the theater are its dialogues. There are actually very few conversation between the lead characters but whatever the writer has written, it is par brilliance. The conversation on life, generation and even the Twitter is something that will induce smile over your lips and will make you rethink if you have the required depth to understand them.
In the end, I would surely like to appreciate the makers of the movie to take the bold step of taking the script out for all of us. Do watch, don’t wait to watch ‘Waiting’, that’s the only verdict from me.
