Any filmmaker who is making a low budget film understands that survival is already a big task. With poor publicity campaign, and competition from popular film, it almost becomes impossible to attract audience to the theatre.
Sulemani Keeda has a simple and realistic approach, which is very entertaining at times, and boring sometimes.
The first half of Sulemani Keeda is amusing, and well worth your money. There are many engrossing and entertaining moments. The conversation between Dulal (aka Naveen Kasturia) and Mainak (Mayank Tewari) where they talk about girls, and writing is a show stealer. But the fun part tapers off in the second half. The jokes stop amusing and don’t work in most scenes. But what is appreciable here is that director Amit V Masurkar didn’t leave the realistic approach till the end. This is what works in the favour of the film.
What’s the story?
Writers Dulal (aka Naveen Kasturia) and Mainak (Mayank Tewari) want to shake Bollywood with their story Sulemani Keeda, but they get rejected. The two resort to book stores and poetry. The two then meet cat-obsessed star son Gonzo Kapoor, who wants them to write a Orgy story. The problem starts when Dulal falls in love with a lawyer.
How is the acting?
Both Naveen Kasturia and Mayank Tewri have acted well in the film. The two have completely justified the roles given to them. A slight carelessness in the performance could have destroyed the entire film.
Big Question-Should I watch the film?
Sulemani Keeda is a light-hearted, which will keep you engrossed till ends, given you are aged below 30. But if you are looking for paisa vasool stuff at the theatres this week, then you could wait till the DVDs are out. You won’t regret watching the film.
Sulemani Keeda is about two writers Dulal and Mainak.Review on Dailybhaskar.com.
