Shaitan Movie Review (BD)

Movie Information:IMDB Link 

Cast:Rajeev Khandelwal,Kalki Koechlin,Pawan Malhotra,Shiv Pandit,Gulshan Devaiya,Neil Bhoopalam,Kirti Kulhari

Direction: Bejoy Nambiar

Genre: Thriller,Action

Duration: 2 hours 7 minutes

Movie Overview:

The movie as I guessed earlier, is a revamped version of Anurag Kashyap directorial debut (which is still in the claws of Indian Censor Board) "Paanch" starring Kay Kay Menon.And now after almost a decade of his first yet unreleased movie, Anurag Kashyap producing this movie and getting it through the censor board without any cuts is a good slam to the Indian Censor Board. Clearly the movie is more intense and dark than Paanch. The movie is a way more profane with mild to severe abuses, implicit sex and nudity, and explicit violent scenes. And yet the movie has passed without a cut (showing a fact that censorship has improved a lot).

The movie is almost perfect on cinematic aspects. Casting and Direction is flawless.Cinematography is something best I have seen so far. Every scene is shot in the ultra stylish way leading to a brilliant story telling.
First half of the movie is extremely engaging and entertaining, the second half lacks a bit by predictable turns and twists.

All the subplots of the movie like their characters are very strong take it as subtle love story of Rajeev Khandelwal (So graceful on the screen) or the one with Amy's mother, every character has its own story to tell and they tell it in their own ultra stylish way.

The "Shomu" cameo (By someone who has done commendable job in AK's last produced movie) and Nikhil Chinnapa add the surprise factor to the movie.

Yet again a brilliant piece of cinema by Anurag Kashyap Production and kudos to Bijoy Nambiar.

Quick Review:

All male debutants Shiv Pandit,Gulshan Devaiya and Neil Bhoopalam are hopeful and very bright on acting skills.Rajeev Khandelwal (A main reason that could bring female fans for the movie) is absolutely charming. Pawan Malhotra and rest are good.

Story And Screenplay:
Story is in a way inspired from real events as well as the movie Paanch. Screenplay by the director himself is very  piquant. Dialouges are crisp. The writing section is almost flawless.

Editing And Cinematography:
Editing is very good. Few stiches in the second half could have help this movie to get a five star rating from me. Cinematography By R. Madhi is undoubtedly the best till date in the history of Bollywood.

Music And Background Score:
No words to describe the music and background score. Absolutely speechless!! I can watch this movie again for the music and background score only.Khoya Khoya Chand, Josh and Pintya song sequences are the limelight of the movie.

What a vehicle for a debutant's launch! Shaitan is ofcourse Anurag Kashyap's baby. But the true credit of the movie should go to Bejoy Nambiar. Bijoy, give me something as good as this and I will be your patron.

The movie due to many off-screen reasons deserves a five. But as a reviewer keeping personal aspects aside, I rate this movie a deserved 4.5
