Multiple Stories entangled in a single screenplay is what Bejoy Nambiar serves out in a platter released this week. David uses the experimental plot of placing three different stories, which occurs in completely unrelated era of 75s, 99s & 2012. The tread that cling these three stories into a single substance is revealed in later half.
The three stories are set in London, Mumbai and Goa. David(s) in Bejoy’s screenplay are seen fighting with their inner selves, but the hard part is to digest that this is a tread that binds them.
At times David comes out strongly and appears good, but finally falls apart. It leaves an impression on viewers that David is an unpolished gem.
Bollywood is still a novice when it comes to concept cinema and has to learn on how to make different plots complement each other.
Bejoy’s Shaitan ensured a loyal audience for David but the audience did not get anything else apart from sleek & stylish cinematography.
You would like the background score and emotional quotient of the movie. Intense acting and movie’s screenplay backed by good cinematography.
Absurd editing and irrelevant soundtrack. In fact soundtrack could be dealt away with. Length of the movie would also count as a con.
On the whole David is a stylish package served with a vacuum substance, it appeals at times but fails to deliver what was expected from the talented Bejoy Nambiar. You might consider giving it a skip if you are one of his fan, however you won’t be leaving with a bad taste as the movie still promises a stylish package (something similar to what Atif Aslam’s videos provide you with).
Blog to Bollywood rates David as 2.5 on a scale of 5.
