Bejoy Nambiar's Triple Treat

By MovieTalkies.com, 31 January 2013 3 / 5

David Movie Review- In Short: The film tells stories of three different individuals set in three different time zones and places…
 
David Movie Review- Verdict: The film is definitely worth a watch for the stories as well as the visual appeal…
 
David Movie Review-Story Plot: 1975 London: David (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is a member of a crime syndicate in London. When a trio of Indian government agents arrives in London to assassinate the crime lord Ghani, David, who is battling his own emotional battles, gets embroiled in a plot that might change his life forever.
 
1999 Mumbai: David (Vinay Virmani) is a young Bandra boy, who loves nothing better than strumming his guitar and dreaming of 'making it big'. However, when a right-wing politician Malati Tai (Rohini Hattangadi) decides to make an example of David's father Noel (Nasser), a do-gooder priest, for the sake of her own political aspirations, David has to decide between vengeance and forgiveness…
 
2010 Goa: David (Vikram) is an alcoholic fisherman, who has fallen in love at first sight with Roma (Isha Sharvani), a deaf and mute girl. However, Roma is about to get married to his best friend Peter (Nishan Nanaiah). David has ten days to choose between friendship and love…
 
David Movie Review-Performances: The film has a big cast and without exception, everyone has done a pretty decent job. From Neil Nitin Mukesh to Vikram to Nasser to Saurabh Shukla to Tabu to Isha Sharvani to Lara Dutta, everyone has performed well. Though Vinay Virmani could have done better, all said and done, no one is disappointing as such as far as performance is concerned (though we wish Milind Soman could have got a meatier role). Out of the above, it is Vikram and Nasser, who stand out amongst the other actors in the movie.
 
David Movie Review-Direction: At the outset, it must be said that the film is a visual delight. From the black and white story starring Neil Nitin Mukesh to the colourful Goa episode and the rain-swept Mumbai in the Vinay Virmani story, David will make your eyes go wide with wonder. The stories in themselves are quite worthy of grabbing your attention, though at times, the plots do become predictable. The story set in London does take its time in getting to the point, but then, the drama that takes place in a Mafia family is sure to keep you intrigued. Nambiar's Achilles Heel proves to be his insistence in trying to link the three stories together and ending up making the result somewhat quite far-fetched. The Mumbai story is not that gripping though, but the Goan episode more than makes up for it with its humour quotient.
 
David Movie Review-Music: From the traditional Mast Kalandar to the hard rock number Bandey to the Goan melody 'Maria pitache' to Rab di, the music of the film is quite diverse and impressive.
 
David Movie Review-Final Word: Bejoy Nambiar's 'triple treat' is definitely worth a watch

A Decent Experiment Worth A Hear

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 16 January 2013 3 / 5

David is an upcoming action dramatic thriller directed by Bejoy Nambiar who is remembered for his superb work in Shaitan. The movie casts Vikram, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Vinay Virmani with Tabu, Lara Dutta, Monica Dogra and Isha Sharvani as the leading ladies. A team of varied artists along with different composers and lyricists have come under one roof though as of now, talk of the album is its fusion version of all-time hit song Mast Kalandar.

 
The album starts with a situational track Ghum Huye (The Theme Of David) which highlights 'suspense', which plays an integral part of the film. Surprisingly though, vocals by Siddharth Basrur don't really leave much of an impact and it seems difficult that they would be able to seek attention of the common masses. As for the lyrics penned by Ankur Tewari, they too aren't really catchy. On the whole, this composition by Bramfatura is barely average.
 
It would be like a dream come true for the talented Rekha Bhardwaj to lend her vocals for the traditional track Mast Kalandar. In this modern retro qawalli, Rekha has lived up to the expectations as she maintains the magic and thrill of this Sufiana track with her strong voice quality. This composition is as pleasant and impressive as the original one while the 'rock version' is further remoulded with a vibrant mix of instruments that shapes up as an interesting fusion.
 
Next in list is Tore Matware Naina in the vocals of Nirali Kartik and Joyshanti. The track begins with an interesting Arabic piece with a classical flavour added by the female vocalists. The track is an interesting hear and should certainly attract listeners. Lyrics penned by Maatibaani, Joyshanti and Pt. Laghulal are good and deserve an acknowledgement. Altogether, an unusual and versatile composition of the composer Maatibaani.
 
Remo Fernandes makes an entry in the album with his Goan rendition Maria Pitache. This number reminds of a joyful carnival with lyrics penned by both Remo and Abhijeet Deshpande that go well with the genre of the track. The arrangements used are quite lively and enjoyable.
 
Tere Mere Pyaar Ki is Prashant Pillai's duet composition with vocals lent by Naresh Iyer and Shweta Pandit. This one is a soft melody on low notes that begins with the sound of a whistle. The musical arrangements used by the composer are quite appreciable with lyrics penned by Gopal Datt being simple and nice.
 
What follows is a hard rock number Bandhay by Modern Mafia that is well dominated by drums and guitar right throughout. This one is a below average song that starts with a loud male chorus and proceeds ahead with the vocals which are unimpressive and monotonous. This Ankur Tewari song does succeed in sketching a situation as if the protagonists are approaching towards the climax . However as a standalone number, one can even skip the number.
 
 
Here appears a rain song 'Yun Hi Re' which starts in the melodious vocals of Anirudh (also the composer) and Swetha Mohan. This one is a soft romantic number on low notes and experiments with a blend of classical and modern music that is really cool. A nice breeze of violin used towards the end makes it even more fascinating. Turaz's lyrics are catchy and captivating.
 
Rab Di is a solo track sung by the vocalist Kartik which begins with a male chorus. The number has a Sufi flavour with musical arrangements by Prashant Pillai doing the trick as they are highly energetic with a blend of high beats. Rab Di (The Rab Step Version) is another experiment where Dub Sharma plays up with the variation in the arrangements while adding on the beats.
 
 
Next in the line is the track, Out of Control that starts with English lyrics in the vocals of Nikhil D'Souza who is soon joined by the female vocalist Priti Pillai who lends a classical theme. This one is a beautiful fusion by composer Mikey Mccleary who brings on a guitar and blends an English theme with Indian classical while managing to touch both heart and the soul. 'Out Of Control (Choir Version)' is another edition of the track that beautifully uses a choir in the track, a rare trend in Bollywood these days.
 
The album moves ahead with Ya Husain that has Lucky Ali making a comeback after a long time. Though one expected a lot from it, the track seems to be more off a narration, hence turning out to be stagnant and unappealing.
 
Coming up next is another English rendition Three Kills in the vocals of Saurabh Roy and Aaron Carvalho. The composition from The Light Years Explode has a hard rock beginning to it and reminds of Usha Uthup. Aaron Carvalho's lyrics do not turn out to be much attractive though and the track proves to be below average overall.
 
The album concludes with Remo Fernandes's Light House Symphony which is a nice and soothing instrumental number that carries shades of 90s. The track also has a chorus well dominated by Remo himself with a lot of Goan feel and charm to it.
 
Overall David proves out to be a decent album though it scores high on the experimental front. That should be a reason good enough to give this one a listening or two. Or perhaps more!
