Nishabd is a marked departure from Ram Gopal Varma’s earlier films, sensitive and bold at the same time. Starring Amitabh Bachchan and debutante Jiah Khan, its a story about a sixty-year-old married man falling for an eighteen-year-old girl.
Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Jiah Khan, Revati
Nishabd isn’t Lolita nor is it American Beauty, but it has few shades of these films; An experiment using poetry and camera as props a maverick filmmaker unravels uncharted Indian cinema territory. The movie will definitely get very mixed reactions, as one man’s art can become another man’s porn. But due to its bold storyline, slow pace execution and definitely scantly claded Jiah might keep many family audience away from theaters.
But, powerful performances by both the protagonists, specially newcomer Jiah Khan is very commendable.
