LANKA Movie review: Brotherhood has a new shame
The director of this Manoj Bajpayee-Arjan Bajwa starrer is the protégé of the man who directed films like Cash and RA.One. That is hint enough to tell you what to expect…
To begin with, the director of Lanka, Maqbool Khan, has totally lived up to his mentor Anubhav Sinha’s benchmark. The female protagonist of the film is almost as confused as the heroine of RA.One, played by Kareena Kapoor, who danced with a robot who looked like her dead husband. The lead protagonist (or antagonist) played by Manoj Bajpayee in Lanka, along with Arjan Bajwa, the actor who plays the part of his brother, are blessed with powers only superheroes can boast of. They don’t literally fly around but, God forbid, if you do end up watching the film, you’ll nod your head in agreement with me. Click here to read more
