It’s not every day that you get the chance of watching a good movie with brilliant actors and thoughtful acting, all in a simple, non-clichéd yet thought-provoking storyline.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s (Shyam) flawless acting as a school teacher.
Shweta Tripathi (Sandhya) as the cute-kind-next-door girl student as the centre of a love-contention.
Irfan Khan (Kamal) and Mohammad Samad (Mintu) as students with their funny and innovative ideas.
From what it seems, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a primary school teacher who teaches Irfan and Mohammad Samad at tuition. Siddiqui seems married, as in a couple of scenes, we see his wife leaving him. Shweta Tripathi, who is acting as a school student is in love with her teacher, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and apparently so is Irfan.
The trailer shows Mohammad Samad helping his friend Irfan in winning the love of Shweta Tripathi who is in love with Nawazuddin. Then, the struggle of Nawazuddin between his wife and his love for Shweta. The struggle of Shweta thinking of society and choosing between the rights and the wrongs and between the love of Irfan and Nawazuddin.
The movie talks of young love and portrays innocence. It is funny and emotional at the same time.
And, if I had to choose,
I would anticipate that Shweta Tripathi accepts the love of Irfan towards the end of the movie.
Known and praised for their acting prowess in Masaan and Chillar Party respectively, Shweta Tripathi and Irfan Khan have done another great work to be remembered by.
Haraamkhor was premiered at 15th annual New York Indian Film Festival where Nawazuddin Siddiqui received the Best Actor award for the film. The movie was also a favourite at the MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2016.
From the looks of it, the movie is going to win hearts with its simple and profound acting.
Directed by Shlok Sharma with Music by Jasleen Royal,
the movie is set to hit the theatres on 13th January 2017.
