YSZ is inherently an adult concept, with adult sensibilities. I dunno why Sudhir wanted a U/A cert for it. Kids won't enjoy it. Kids in fact, should not see it! It’s uninhibited, unabashed and thank god for that! Otherwise, it would have lost its craziness which eventually sucks you in.
It’s about a man mad about a woman, who in turn is in love with someone else. When someone else gets into trouble, she gets into trouble and the man decides to save them both. And there are several other subplots and a parallel storyline. Everything does not make sense most of the times and that’s frustrating, but eventually all threads are tied together neatly.
Irfan Khan is effortless in his portrayal of the man in love. He is also the narrator and the movie is about how life screws you when you least expect or need it. And the basic premise leads you through a tangled web of deception, power-struggle and a hell of a lot of expletives. But unlike No one Killed Jessica, the curses do not look out of place. The ensemble cast do an exceptional job at being foul mouthed. Saurabh Shukla is his crazy, freaking self; while Arunoday Singh does justice to his role. Chintrangada is not in top form though. Couldn’t see the “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi” magic.
The music is decent and the dialogues by Sudhir Mishra are rocking. But the Hero of the movie remains the Screenplay. It’s long, it’s winding, it’s torturous, infact frustrating, but eventually takes you to this fun place – the climax. The climax of the film is rocking. Can’t complain of too much foreplay, if the climax is a HIT, can we? If you manage to sit through a chunk in the middle where the film seems to be hurtling along as a misguided missile, you would definitely enjoy the bang-on end.
Be it the crazy long, uninhibited kisses, or the barrage of desi and pardesi gaalis or the completely whacky storyline, this movie proves that Mishra is completely insane and I am loving it! Go on, watch this film, coz it’s the best thing in theaters right now! And even though its not spectacular - frankly, its guilty pleasure!
Rating : 7 / 10 ( "1" extra for the whacky moaning with which the end-credits start!! :) Love it! )
