Shaitan movie should not be given a miss as after a long time I get to watch an entertaining thriller which is intense, quirky, wild, violent and interesting at the same time. It’s that rare film that transcends from a kick-ass script into an equally stunning film. The movie does not sermonizes neither sympathizes with the drug victims but gives a glimpse into the erratic and inner psyche of such youngsters who live for the ‘moment’. It subtly brings out the inner shaitan which lurks within all of us and it takes that in particular moment to come out.
Story: It’s the story of five youngsters in the city of Mumbai who love to stay at the edge and derive every excitement in their lives with no worries about tomorrow. Amy, KC, Dash, Tanya and Zubin had a fun-filled life till a ‘moment ‘where they kill an innocent in an accident. The accident changes everything, which eventually brings out the inner ‘shaitan’ in all of them. The story has the exact amount of emotion and nothing is in excess.
The cinematography is spectacular with a mix of dark and fast shots which explores the inner psyche of the youngsters. The car chase scene gives you goose-bumps and is interestingly shot. Dialogues are quite hard hitting, forceful and youth –centric. Without a doubt, the situation that Khoya Khoya Chand is set to is brilliantly edited. And for once I liked the use of slow motion in a song.
It’s for the youth who love realism, edginess and edgy thrillers which is new to Indian audience. The high speed and fast shots makes it an exhilarating cinematic experience which surely cannot be given a miss!
