The Naseeruddin Shah-Kalki Koechlin starrer “Waiting ” is accumulating positive response on online networking, as well as pulling in cinegoers for its touching story.
It is around two outsiders who are poles apart yet ended up friends while Waiting for their particular life partners to receuperate. Viewers are drawing parallels between chief Anu Menon’s film and a year ago’s sleeper hit ‘Piku’. The unlikely pairing of Naseer-Kalki is reminiscent of Amitabh Bachchan-Deepika Padukone in Shoojit Sircar’s comedy drama.
Their charming performances have been cheered by the audiences. Both motion pictures investigate a subject that individuals don’t transparently examine. While ‘Piku’ talked about bowel movements and mortality, ‘Waiting’, produced by Priti Gupta and Manish Mundra, is about the fear of losing your loved one. The witty dialogues and the lead pair’s contrasting outlook on life show an attempt to bridge the generation gap, creating real-life situations with heart-warming and hilarious moments in equal measure. Menon says, “All our social media feeds are filled with such beautiful audience responses that sometimes I think the poet in everyone has woken up. We aren’t getting one-word feedback like ‘good stuff’ or ‘superb’. We are receiving essays and poems from people on how they have related to the film.”
‘Waiting ‘, created by Ishka Films and Drishyam Films, is right now playing in silver screens crosswise over India. – CINEWS
