Serious Men (2020) India Movie Review

Serious Men download, While Netflix has been busy designing India Radhika Apte as a kind of pet, really should have been paying attention to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, an actor who has consistently delivered top-notch content for the streamer.

His last, Serious Men, Netflix completes a hat-trick of hits for the actor, after games and Raat Akeli Hai sacred. More of this, please.

It’s interesting how the perception of the common man, the director Sudhir Mishra has changed since Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro in 1983.

Ayyan is a complicated guy. On the one hand, his anger is justified – that has been the systematic oppression of a nation would prefer to remain in their socioeconomic position – but on the other, it is difficult that we like.

Serious men are in many ways a movie jail-break. Ayyan has trapped in the metaphorical prison Mumbai, the high-rise tower surrounding his chawl as bars in a cell.

As wickedly funny as the film is, and how nice perversely Ayyan schemes are to see, Serious men would not have worked if there had been a collective rage aimed at the creation.

It is a film that captures what it is to live in India, around 2020. It is a capsule of the time, like so many satirical films that were released in the post-emergency era, captures the mood of the nation.

This is an awesome movie, one of those rare experiences where it seems as if every department – costumes, sound, lighting – is a jazz-like groove. This is ironic, considering what the film is also about how everyone these days seems to exist in eco-cameras.
