5 Rajat Kapoor movies you must watch!

rajat-kapoor

Rajat Kapoor does theater, he does movies of different sorts and he for sure is a versatile actor. Often we complain about the shortage of realistic cinema in Bollywood these days. That’s mostly because movies of the aforementioned sort don’t usually get a place in the multiplexes and if they get they run short of audience. Still there are people who want to watch realistic cinema, they value it and they cherish it!

 

I have tried to muster a collection of Rajat Kapoor movies. Out of that collection, here I am listing five movies I think are less watched but deserve attention. I am pretty sure you’ll like these. This list is purely out of my personal experience, so no lies and no canards either!

 

Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi: A movie that is a brilliant satire on the so called high suave society. The protagonist Rajat Kapoor gets so drunk at a party that he doesn’t remember iota about what happened that night. Throughout the movie he is skeptical about things, confused and this confusion leads to interesting events.

 

I’m 24: A movie in essence about online dating. A movie that demonstrates how reality can be different than what we see online! The protagonist dates a girl online and tells us that he is really good looking but in reality it is a different story altogether. A simple yet impressive story and definitely leaves an impact on the audience.

 

Bheja Fry: The story of Bheja fry revolves around a simpleton guy. Rajat Kapoor in this particular movie plays the role of a suave man, apparently a character that really suits his persona. The movie is sure to tickle your funny bone. It is a simple story but with some really strong and impressive performances.

 

Hulla: Another Rajat Kapoor movie that is simple yet extremely relevant. The movie displays the life of a couple living in a gated society in Mumbai. The man gets disturbed by the whistling watchman and scolds him for the same. On the other hand, the secretary of the society insists that the whistling is for the safety of the society. The movie is an extremely interesting one and showcases day to day activities that happen around us.

 

Siddharth: The Prisoner: Well this one is a pure Rajat Kapoor show! He hardly speaks in the movie but his gestures and expressions speak aloud! It is a story of a writer who by fate gets a briefcase full of cash but in the process lost his manuscript. So the crave waves between greed and selflessness. Rajat Kapoor with this brooding looks does absolute justice to the role. In the end, he leaves it all. He leaves it all to start afresh!

 

Well these are just some of the Rajat Kapoor movies mentioned here. He has done umpteen number of movies and keeps experimenting to serve something new and different to the audiences.

Let’s not shun realistic cinema!

Movies

Movies or rather cinema is nothing but an extension of your society. That is about real cinema that is not in the trend these days when unrealistic movies are mushrooming like anything! At time you feel who is to be blamed for this! The audience is definitely to be blamed for promoting or more importantly enduring non-serious cinema with a broad smile on face. An acute problem is that it’s not just the audience’s fault; we have limited (rather no) access to quality cinema! Apparently we are facing oligarchy in Bollywood as a result only few selected big banner movies get promoted or screened at multiplexes. As a result the youth has limited access to realistic cinema.

 

The purpose of cinema is not mere entertainment but also a source of inspiration or information. A few non-serious movies or romantic movies are good but these shouldn’t hinder the other authentic movies to be screened. We have been observing this for long, a good movie comes in and goes out without anyone getting even an iota of idea about it! Serious cinema, centric cinema has the power to impact the society and can lead to positive changes. I am not sure movies like ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Befikre’ have the potential to change or impact the society in a positive way! A cardinal reason I am writing this post is that I often come across promotions for movies like the aforementioned but seldom do I see serious movies getting promoted or pushed.

 

The Bollywood has some really talented folks and they continue their good work of making quality and sensible cinema without expecting fiscal returns! Probably this is because they love their job and they take it as their responsibility to not allow abatement of cinema quality. I didn’t see Masaan getting promoted in any of the TV shows; neither did I see Manjhi in the news often. Movies like Sir Kay Kay Menon starring Rahasya, Rajat Kapoor starring ‘Mithya’ didn’t get the deserved attention as well. These are just a few examples the list is a long one.

 

Now let’s try and break the shackles! Please try and support realistic cinema as often as you can. It is a treasure that we need to preserve. Actors like Ranvir Shorey, Rajkummar Rao, Vinay Pathak, Kay Kay Menon, Rajat Kapoor and others keep coming up with extremely interesting and well thought projects. Let us promote sensible cinema, after all it is for us to relish!

Movies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bollywood keeps producing amazing stuff and makes you marvel at the sheer creativity. I saw ‘Maqbool’ for the first time a few months back and this movie really amazed and impressed me! Everything about the movie is amazing! The dialogues are superb and the acting is intense and extremely real. I saw it for the first time on my cell phone to be candid but since then I have seen the movie almost a dozen times. Although, the movie is an adaptation of the Shakespearean play ‘Macbeth’ but still the uniqueness is there.

 

There are numerous reasons you must watch the movie, a few of them are:

 

Pankaj Kapoor’s powerful and magnificent role:

Pankaj Kapoor played the role of Jehangir Khan (Abba Ji) in the movie and this role is apparently the strongest of them all. There is not even an iota of doubt that Pankaj Kapoor did full justice to the role. The power just oozes from his face and his personality looks extremely dominating. His Urdu pronunciation looks so authentic and it just adds to the effect! If you really want to see the acting skills of the master Pankaj Kapoor you must watch the movie ‘Maqbool’.

 

The plot is extremely interesting:

Well it is needless to say, the movie is an adaptation of a Shakespearean play so the plot has to be simply awesome! The plot is really interesting and keeps you glued at every moment. The twists and the turns in the plot are simply amazing.

 

The dialogues of the movie are simply amazing:

This by far is the strongest thing about the movie. The dialogues are deep, intense and extremely sarcastic. The dialogue delivery is amazing as well may it be Tabu, Pankaj Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Piyush Mishra or others! The dialogues by Ompuri and Naseeruddin Shah playing the role of witches are extremely witty and sarcastic. You must definitely watch the movie carefully to pay full attention to the dialogues.

 

Tabu (Lady Macbeth) plays the role of a strong and gusty woman:

Well it would probably be correct if we say that Tabu is actually the hero in the movie! Her role is amazing and she does full justice to it! She plays the role of a woman who desires, who has ambitions, who craves and who is envious of the rivals!

 

The sarcastic duo of the witches played by Ompuri and Naseeruddin Shah:

Originally in the play also, the witches play an important, interesting and somewhat weird role! It is the witches who predict that Macbeth will be the king of kings in the future. It is the witches who instigate Macbeth to try to dethrone the king. The role is extremely played well by the veteran actors Ompuri and Naseeruddin Shah. The sarcastic dialogues between the dynamic duos are simply amazing and tickle your funny bone!

 

So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, watch it now without any further delay! The movie is sure to thrill and amaze you!
