"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

Firaaq - Bobby Talks Cinema.comLast year we had a brilliant movie “Mumbai Meri Jaan” which talked about different people who were victims or a part of Mumbai Train Blasts. On the similar lines “Firaaq” (means Separation or Judaai) tells stories of few people, their fears and the trauma they face after one month of the mis-happening in the state. Nandita Das, comes up with a sensitive & thoughtful movie based on aftermaths of the Gujarat Riots, which unfortunately happened in 2002.

Though it may not be liked by mainstream viewers for its artistic treatment, but for a thinking viewer, “Firaaq” has depth, emotions and power to make you reconsider, what is the difference between two religions which causes so much hatred and bloodshed? Nandita Das succeeds in generating the empathy impact in the viewer as he witnesses the sequences on the screen. The film and its sensitive direction can make you understand the minute distinction in the words ‘sympathy’ and ‘empathy’. You can feel the pain experienced by the victims as if it was all happening around you. And the credit goes to the intelligently written, well directed and brilliantly cinematographed scenes throughout the movie. A must watch sensitive movie, for the thinking minds.
