Shiddat Movie Story
A young lover with extreme persistence changes the course of his life to follow the girl he thinks is his soul mate. But his travels, spanning continents, are fraught with problems, reality checks, and unrequited obsessions. Will he find love or will he perish in search of love?
By now you know the synopsis and story of this movie, Ab Bari Hai Kis Movie Review – It is love at first sight for Jaggi (Sunny Kaushal) when he sees Kartika (Radhika Madan) coming out of the swimming pool. But the spark doesn’t fly immediately, because an elaborate ‘hate is the first line of love’ process goes like this,
Jaggi is trying every trick in the book to woo the girl. Here’s to some fun, as director Kunal Deshmukh takes us back to a brand of 90s cinema.
Which is played in a modern setting. It’s a bit problematic to see a very motivated young man who is obsessed with a girl and won’t take it for an answer – something that was not only accepted in the 90s but also celebrated with song and dance. ‘Shiddat’ draws dangerously close to her, but thankfully the writers (Sridhar Raghavan, Dheeraj Ratan) give enough agency to the girl,
who is free enough to take a stand for himself. As a passionate love story, ‘Shiddat’ is purely inspired by the point of view of its male protagonist Jaggi, whose frantic passion is given enough time to build up. The entire first half is light and sultry with campus romance, flirting and lots of dancing – basically everything but academic. What works here is the unpredictability factor, as you wonder what will happen to this unlikely love story.
There aren’t many characters in ‘Shiddat’ that are fresh, but their individual arcs could have been more clearly defined. There’s little credence in the Mohit Raina and Diana Penty story that only exists to aid the central story, which is fine, but it doesn’t feel organic. Sunny Kaushal has the toughest time playing a bouncy boyfriend-boy with serious boundary issues and where the actor tries his best to explain it,
At the same time, his character graph becomes very hard to believe. Radhika Madan struggles to effectively portray Kartika’s inner struggle on screen, mostly, resorting to fumbling to express her concern. Mohit Raina is well cast as Gautham, the conscientious Indian immigration lawyer in a foreign land, but has too many cinematic liberties to take him seriously.
Diana Penty as the independent young Ira looks gorgeous, but her character could have been developed more effectively. For a love story, ‘Shiddat’ has above average music (Sachin-Jigar) that grows on you and is used effectively to enhance the narrative. With rich cinematography (by Amalendu Choudhary), the film shows visual finesse.
