A confused crack at eradicating corruption

STORY: Hellbent on exposing corruption in India, particularly in the direction of the downtrodden members of the neighborhood, Mumbai-based documentary filmmaker Divya (Raima Sen) picks up her pen and pad to interview the suppressed and forgotten. Whereas the intent of the film is noble, its execution is something however.

REVIEW: The movie opens to Divya pacing forwards and backwards, nervous sick over having to overlook this yr’s film-festival circuit as her documentary on poverty—amongst different social evils we’re instructed she deeply cares about—is but to be conceptualised. Her ‘good friend’ Deepak (Bhushan Pradhan) is fast to counsel that they rent a pickpocketer from the slums of Mumbai for a sting operation on intercourse traffickers and bondage labourers. In comes Sartak (Prathamesh Parab), whose Mumbaiyya slang and vibrant costume sense is simply not sufficient to shine gentle on the impoverished life-style he supposedly leads. With a fundamental spy digicam and each day pay of 1 grand, Sartak begins his spherical of interviews that—had it not been for these ticker-esque titles—would have simply handed off as some faculty challenge, collectively.

Simmy Joseph’s social drama is erected on a rocky basis: the director tries to say an excessive amount of in too little time, and with no preparation in any respect. Aside from Atul Kulkarni and Raima Sen’s unsuccessful try at making ‘Anya’ look purposeful and all-knowing, the movie has the whole lot else going in opposition to it: the poorly designed set, shoddy post-production work and a script that doesn’t know what it needs to convey to the lots.

In a single body, we’re waging a warfare in opposition to compelled displacement, then we rapidly transfer over to the non-existent sexual stress between the documaker and her former-lover-turned-writer Arindam (Atul Kulkarni). ‘Anya’ wanted to make up its thoughts earlier than happening the flooring. So as to add insult to harm, Krishna Raaj inserts a background rating that’s deafening and unfit for a severe topic like corruption.

At a time when voicing your unpopular opinion is labelled against the law and also you a felony, crew ‘Anya’ is unquestionably daring sufficient to name a spade a spade. However, with no actual framework to fall again on, this movie will almost definitely be sidelined.
