David – 1975, 1999, 2010

Three Davids. Three different generations. But they are united in their action. They may not be related to each other. A thin line connects them. However they are one of those rarest humans. Atleast that’s what Bejoy Nambiar (the Director) feels.

When you are too genius in school, when you are too smart at work you get a double promotion! When you are too creative and have too much to express in 150 minutes what do you do. You look towards Bejoy Nambiar. He is the newest talent when it comes to freshness, newness, exciting screenplay, exciting camerawork, cool background score, characterization and casting. I mean who can cast so many characters in one movie, every song is composed by a different music composer. I am flat as a critic. You can’t beat this guy’s energy! Give it up for Bejoy Nambiar folks.

Now, I will speak about the movie also for some time otherwise this will be a passage on Bejoy Nambiar.

Ok now, this is the cast ! can someone count this please :  Vikram, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Vinay Virmani, Lara Dutta, Tabu, Isha Sharvani, Sheetal Menon, Nassar, Nishan, Prahlad Kakkar, Remo Fernandes, Rubi Chakravarti, Monica Dogra, Rohini Hattangadi, Milind Soman, John Vijay, Saurabh Shukla, Shweta Pandit, Satish Kaushik, Anupama Kumar, Akarsh Khurana, Manish Jha, Bharat Jha, Ajinkya Dev, Sarika (Special appearance), Sainath Dukkipati.

Chiyaan Vikram’s cool transition from Kollywood to Bollywood has just got cooler. I hope he continues to do more movies in Bollywood and not stop. He does 150% justice to his role as a drunkard lover boy. He is confused whether or not the girl likes him too.

Vinay Virmani as the upcoming musician promises good looks but may be slightly woody in expressions. He has two good actors as the other two Davids.

Neil Nitin Mukesh as a gangster’s forbidden son is the dark horse in this movie. His role is the most like-able and he has pulled it off with great composure. Add to this, the black and white cinematography for his story.

Tabu’s role stays in your head for quite a while after the three Davids. She is a natural actor and brings her strength to the table.

Screenplay, Cinematography and Editing are the three pillars of this movie, fourth one being Bejoy himself.

Happy “Trendsetting” movie watching experience!

    Varun, David was so pathetic and i could nt able to sit even for an hr. I dont know how u liked this bijoy’s crap ? is it cos of his prev flick Shaitan? Btw i saw in tamil. Vikram was doing nothing other than just drinking in each and every frame…IMHO, It is the worst film of the year following his guru Ratnam’s Kadal.
