FR 8 – A WEDNESDAY! (2008) – Naseeruddin Shah’s bomb threat

May 2, 2009

Mad Professor Marks: 7 out of 10

After 12 yrs the duo Anupm Kher and Naseeruddin Shah  returns to the screen, here with Anupam Kher as an about-to-retire Police Commissioner narrating a sequence of events that unfolded on a particular Wednesday and with Naseeruddin Shah being a calm and dignified terrorist having placed five bombs at sensitive places all over Mumbai on just that very Wednesday.

Neeraj Paney’s debut as director/writer is one of the several films which came out of the Bollywood film industry in the last three years and is so atypical for everything Bollywood stands for. A WEDNESDAY! does not only prove that there are young filmmakers creating intelligent and engaging  films but also that there is an audience for these breed of flicks out here!
