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 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
