Serious Men Review
Some people live their life, Of how they get served. And some, how they want to live. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has played beautifully the concept of Nihilism. He believes strongly, That there are two people Smart and Slow.
Smart is the people who choose their own way; And dig themselves out of their luck. And the other who leave for the gods. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is the star of this movie. He portrays his role as a genius, While much of the attention was on him.
You can’t neglect the performance of Aakshath Das, He has done the heavy lifting for the movie. The movie touches many issues just for a little while that it won’t make any controversy, But will start a mental conversation in your mind. From the Brahmins and Dalit issue; To Christian Missionary.
The film is not a comedy movie, But you’ll find moments of laughter. The realism of the movie might discomfort some people, But the accuracy of those facts are still. The stunning portrayal of a middle-class man to his aspirational journey, Will ask many questions in between.
Serious Men like the title is not your typical Friday watch, The movie is about issues that are most likely to get buried in newspapers and discussions. The great thing about Nawazuddin Siddiqui is his style remains the same no matter, While stars keep their physical body intact and change their style quite often. He fits himself in any movie just with his acting ability.
Sudhir Mishra has done a wonderful job of getting all the pieces in place, His direction of portraying sky scrappers in the middle of slums shows the inequality of the country. Serious Men is an amazing movie, And definitely recommendable.
