While a number of movies released this Friday from Angry Birds to Phobia, Waiting starring Naseeruddin Shah and Kalki Koechlin has definitely struck a strong chord with the audience!
A sweet tale tracing the journey of two individuals Tara and Shiv who develop an endearing bond while ’Waiting’ for their better halves to recuperate at the hospital has been receiving rave reviews from the audience and critics alike. Directed by Anu Menon, the warm narrative has been deeply appreciated for its simplicity and its ability to convey the deeper philosophies of life while avoiding the melodrama as usually seen in the typical commercial Bollywood films. Based on reactions, what seems to have clicked with the audience is their ability to connect with the emotions and the characters portrayed in the film.
“I am very thankful for all the love and appreciation that the movie has been receiving. This is an honest film about two individuals and it feels great to see that it resonates so well with the audience, “says Anu Menon.
Naseeruddin Shah has floored critics with his performance of a helpless old loving husband. On the other hand, Kalki impresses the audience in her role of a newlywed wife trying all the means possible to save her husband.
The movie may have started out slowly but has witnessed tremendous growth with the positive word of mouth. With all the positive reviews coming its way, looks like the film is progressing towards a sleeper hit.
