Natha marega kintu jeevit rahega!

The movie tries to shock the user about the media circus that exists in India, using a proposed farmer suicide as base to showcase the TRP wars.

This movie has a moral, the way most Aamir Khan movies do. It basically shows how the actual issue is trivialized and focus is shifted from issues that affect millions to single individual. Here, rather than focusing on why farmers are even considering suicide, they focus on finding how random people "feel" about Natha committing suicide. They forget that suicide is illegal in India and there has to be an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness for someone to even contemplate such a drastic and final step.
This entire sentiment is conveyed through the disillusion that sets into a small time local newspaper reporter trying for a break into big time.

My only grouse is that the first half drags a little, being almost and art film, the duration seems a little long and so the film editing could have be tighter.

Everyone's performance in the movie is very good. Natha has very few dialogues but manages to convey his feelings through expressions beautifully, I especially loved the longing look when he sees the boiled eggs and is coveting them.

Raghuveer Yadav's Mehengai is a heartfelt song that strikes a chord in everyone. and Des Mera has a catchy tune!

My verdict, Its a good movie, but Jaane Bhi do Yaaron (the best Bollywood satirical movie IMO) is in a complete different class.

Rating : 4/5
