I am happy, I am not Cyrus!!

Posted in Movies by clash on March 27, 2006

In this illustrious world of faking up, we all fall prey for all those techniques of masquerading the truth from us. I am happy that I am not Cyrus, for no one will ever aspire to be a Cyrus after watching “being Cyrus”. Parsi family, Saif Ali Khan- The reborn-National award winning (Phew!), Naseeruddin shah, Boman Irani, The sexy old hag- Dimple kapadia, all these were enough reasons to spend a 100 or more bucks to watch “Being Cyrus”.

Saif Ali khan – Was awful. He cannot be blamed; there was nothing much in the movie to act. He is a square-lipped Indian actor who was reborn after “Dil Chahata Hai”. He was horrible in his dialogue deliveries. Lucky him, all of his weird facial expressions were not so evident because of Homo… Homi Adjania’s directorial capabilities. I think “dark humour” was too much to comprehend that I was almost glued to my seat and my jaws dint even open for a second, during the movie except for sipping some “kingfisher strong”. Homi Adjania represents the socialite turned “conscious family lover”. There is no passion in the work, there is no sentiments attached to the work. If something of that sort was expected to generate from the movie, all those where siphoned out with all those brisk camera movements and mercurial editing. For me, an editing style of the kind of “Pulp Fiction” or “Snatch” will never gather all those quotients that should have sufficed “being…”

Naseerudhin Shah as always was enigmatic in his ways, but he also dint have the scope to perform. He almost confined to the blurred vision of camera, in a vain and stupid attempt to glorify his Wife- Dimple kapadia. Her character over ruled his, when the reason behind her character being so is Naseerudin shah. That, seems like, was never a concern, of course, the overt expression of a slut gathers much attention than a reclusive husband. He just floated with his awesome mannerisms and did make an impact as an actor. The Indian way of appreciating an actor or an actress is to glorify them, when they are old. How precise it turns out to be in the case of Dimple Kapadia? For me, she was never awesome in Dil Chahata He, Except that she was toned up and was looking gorgeous. She is still, in “Being…” But was really horrible in her way of portraying the character. Boman Irani comes in to the picture and vanishes soon; it’s really difficult to make any kind of statements about his acting because of his lack of presence on the screen. I agree that he did the quarrel scene very well; even I would have done that with ease.
The police officer and Simone singh were there in the movie, where did I see them, what were they? Is Saif Ali khan being sentimental? Or has he gone “Mental”, After killing all those people? Is he happy about “being cyrus” All these should be answered by Homo… Oh… no… Homi. I think Homi, wishes to be the “quentin tarantino” of India, distorted camera angles and all those crisp editing, if he wishes so, his intuition is wrong.

“Being cyrus” turned out to be a pure gimmick played on the audience by Homi and Times Infotainment Media Limited, with all those Dark n crisp clips shown to us between all those news headlines.

    90 + 90 + 90 + 90 = A lot of money!
    And we wasted it!

    Homo didn’t make the movie…he tried to make a movie.

    Saif didn’t act in the movie…he was trying to make himself believe he could act.

    Dimple K didn’t naturally look gorgeous…she tried to prove to herself (to be read: and the public) that she still has boobs which any man wouldn’t mind trying.

    Boman Irani was not present in the movie…he was just doing a vanishing trick with sideburns.

    In Short…90 * 4 is again a lot of money lost!

    Good Post! 😀

    phew! its great to know I’m not the only one critical abt this movie; I didnt understand what the damn reviews were talking about. Maybe we are supposed to appreciate the effort to make something different; like a movie without ppl dancing around trees. And also the fact that its homi’s first movie… But I’m not so sure how better this movie is from those with ppl dancing around trees… n I dont understand wat that brief psycho type clip was about.
    Just to affirm that there are some great original hindi movies… “Kaun” was an amazing psychological thriller; only if that movie got half the publicity this one’s getting 😦

    Good commentry about a movie which could have mislead many a noble souls (including) curious about the “new wave off beat” bollywood. Well, I think more junks are coming in the big screen from the mostly hollow bollywood (hindi film) experimentations. Saved my time and money too. 🙂
