Apurva Review – Rediff.com

With no different stand-out efficiency (in addition to Tara Sutaria’s) or spectacular scene, Apurva falls by the wayside, the place different shortly made movies find yourself, factors out Deepa Gahlot.

This woman-on-rampage movie appears to have been made to meet a year-end quota or one thing like that as a result of Apurva — written and directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat — appears to be like rushed and half-baked.

It begins with a scene of gratuitous violence, when a bunch of unwashed lowlifes assault a automobile and kill the occupants — kicking certainly one of them to loss of life.

Essentially the most vicious is a juvenile, Chhota (Aaditya Gupta).

The opposite three of the gang are the gruff Jugnu (Rajpal Yadav), nasty Sukha (Abhishek Banerjee) and nastier Balli (Sumit Gulati), all bandits for rent, who observe up on tricks to loot autos on lonely roads.

Simply because a bus driver doesn’t give their automobile proper of approach, they rob the passengers, and kidnap Gwalior-resident Apurva (Tara Sutaria), who’s on her method to shock her Agra-based fiancé Siddharth (Dhairya Karwa) on his birthday.

Their arranged-turned-love match is hurriedly launched, however there are not any particulars that may give some concept of who they’re or what makes them click on. So on this very low hire model of NH10 (2015, Director: Navdeep Singh), the lead pair stays uninteresting.

Equally, the villains are cardboard cut-outs.

The plot exists in a void, with none sense of place. It’s imagined to be the Chambal valley however as an alternative of the ravines, many of the motion takes place in what appears to be like like a dig web site — a maze of stone partitions and pink soil, that could possibly be anyplace.

It’s also noticed {that a} movie, supposedly ‘based mostly on true occasions’, that purports to be against violence in opposition to girls has infinite photographs of Apurva being dragged, manhandled and slapped.

When she falls unconscious, Sukha tells Chhota that he will not take pleasure in raping her until she screams.

Then, in essentially the most distasteful scene, the 4 actually have a pissing contest to find out who will get the primary flip.

The movie’s comparatively quick working time means there isn’t a construct up of stress or the unfolding of Apurva’s feelings, from desperation turning to rage after which fearlessness.

All of this merely portrayed by her working round or hiding and, in some unspecified time in the future, miraculously discovering a sickle that simply provides the movie a dramatic poster picture.

If in any respect the movie does something, it’s to supply Tara Sutaria a job that enables her to behave, quite than simply costume up and play fairly love curiosity to the main man.

With no different stand-out efficiency or spectacular scene, Apurva simply falls by the wayside, the place different shortly made movies find yourself.
