Jatil simplifies, rekindles ‘bujh gaye diye’

You have Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a cop in a lead to a house full of suspects and the “prime” one is Radhika Apte!

Review: Raat Akeli Hai

Rating: 4.5/5

Hum dhoondha kiye tere nishaan,

Yun shaam o seher yaha waha!

 

The moment I see Swanand Kirkire, one song that keeps playing in the back of my mind is this long lost gem many, like me, loved to listen to. This genius acts and writes lyrics as well. And those songs penned by him are epic. You need good music and he was often lucky to get great music directors adding beautiful tunes. Sneha Khanwalker’s here for this movie.

 

And guess what? The bests in the industry assemble to bring out even a better presentation.

 

Name it and you have Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a cop in a lead to a house full of suspects and the “prime” one is Radhika Apte!

 

Well, Raat Akeli Hai is not an Amazon Prime show but Netflix’s. So don’t get confused by the trailer. Spoiler? Umm!

 

The story: The man of the house gets murdered on the night of his second wedding and everyone in the house is a suspect.

 

From cinematography by the ‘God behind the camera’ Pankaj Kumar to story, screenplay and dialogues by Smita Singh to art direction by Rajesh Choudhary and Madhumita Sen, you perhaps get to see everything smoothly done; one big round of applause also for debutant director Honey Trehan. After all, all casting directors are not Mukesh Chhabra.

 

While the main focus will be on how the mystery behind the whodunnit gets solved and each and every actor doing a great job, don’t forget to notice the home drama that’s cooked perfectly well by Nawazuddin and his onscreen mother Ila Arun. You must have wanted to see the duo again after Ghoomketu! Lol!

 

Lastly, Sukhwinder Singh makes a comeback and don’t let the next movie’s trailer get auto-played, as those who believed Mika Singh sings all sorts of fast and hit numbers, Sneha has well-prepared something soothing for your ears with him and Shilpa Rao. Yes, it’s Mika, you might think it’s Papon!

 

Rarely, I get to see something so perfect that I fall short of words to write any further.

 

P.S: If Raat Akeli Hai was not about a famous actor playing the lead and his typical style of acting, dialogue delivery and body language, the location, the attitude and the accent perhaps would have been better carried by Amit Sial.
