Shaitan (2011) *HQ*

There are very few films that inspire the critic such that they can barely wait to write the review. This is one of them.The film introduces us to a group of friends that you like and dislike in turns—but at all times they make for fascinating characters. Amy (Kalki Koechlin) is yet to recover from her mother’s tragic death and begins showing signs of rebellion and mental instability. Her indifferent father makes things worse. Moved into Mumbai from LA, Amy befriends the rest of the gang.

Cast: Kalki Koechlin, Rajeev Khandelwal, Shiv Pandit

Son of a super-rich father, KC throws her off a cliff into a swimming pool to explain trust in a friendship. The Parsi, sweet boy likes making Holi balloons with his waste, gang-leader Dash smooth-talks like a criminal, and upcoming model Tanya is tired of barfing before every shoot. They’re a wild bunch, raiding innocuous chemist stores when they’re out of alcohol to get high and racing cars with strangers. Drugs and personal battles feed off each other in a vicious cycle. And one tragic night, they have an accident.

This incident, as the film loves describing it, brings out the inner ‘shaitan’ in each. It’s pretty basic stuff—the issues have always been there but resurface in this time of crisis—so you have anger management issues, childhood trauma and so on. It makes for a severely gritty film. You do need some resilience to last this one. But it’s worth it.

One can say the film is inspired by Quentin Tarantino and David Fincher’s stylebooks. But despite any inspiration, Shaitan is Nambiar’s very own. You’ll be transported from Mumbai’s swish locales to the innards of Bhindi Bazaar where you witness the unexpected developments, including a ‘80s style cop-n-robber chase. Humour pops in-and-out like a pleasant surprise guest.

It doesn’t make sense to classify the film as good or bad—Shaitan is a unique experience to be savoured if you’re looking for an adventure. In other words—don’t miss!
