MADAARI - From the trailer it was clear that this one looks very similar to A Wednesday . And after watching it i can say it could have been called A Wednesday 2 , although the movie is not composed within a single day here. It was much grander then that , but in the way of being grander it compromised with the sleekness which a thriller needs to be.
A Wednesday is a great movie. And i mean that in a literal sense. GREAT is exactly the right word to define that movie. But A Wednesday was not the first movie to show a common man fighting the corrupt government . It was not the concept but the execution style which made A Wednesday such a great movie. It was sleek , tightly edited , a perfect thriller , edge of the seat drama. As i said in the review of TE3N that the most important thing which a thriller needs to have is fast pace . But Madaari didn't have it. Neither it was fast enough to keep you on the edge of your seat nor it has any shocking suspense to twist your mind. Only thing which carry the movie on its shoulders are performances. Irfan is brilliant as always , specially in the hospital scene when he lost his son. Jimmy shergil was good enough playing his own as well as Anupam Kher's character from A Wednesday as a single person. The movie often mixes itself with emotional drama , unnecessary long back story (also having song in back story) which even decreases whatever pace the movie has.
Although the climax interview with different authorities of higher post was great. Yes it was too much ANTI GOVERNMENT but it felt really good to hear a Home Minister to confess his corrupt works and agreeing that for government normal public are just toys to play with. Those last 30-40mins saved the movie a little bit with nice support from all the actors including child actor Vishesh Bansal.
But I would have liked some shocking reveals , some chasing sequences , some pace in the plot , some more editing , a pure thriller. Without those things it felt like a movie which i have already seen many times in the past.
