Keeping it real, yet again

Dear Readers,

Last Friday, i got a wonderful opportunity to attend the exclusive screening of Mr. Anurag Basu's film "Sunsilk Real FM", despite the fact and knowing he himself won't be coming for the screening, i was still thrilled to attend as it was an 'exclusive' event for bloggers. Although i am not qualified enough to judge or review a movie, but as promised to my fellow bloggers, i will give it a try.

I am really fond of Mr. Basu, because i love the kind of  realistic movies he makes, which people can easily connect to and Sunsilk 97.5 Real FM is no exception. The name may also been chosen keeping that in mind i guess.

Here it goes:-

The film is about 3 friends who join hands to help one of the friend in need. Rhea, the protagonist, is the typical rich  girl who is well provided off, her father is the owner of a radio station and her brother is studying in London. Her world was shattered, when she realizes that her father had a heart attack and the radio station is on brink of closing down. After crying for few seconds, she stood up and decided to save the radio station. With that attitude, i think she has already won half the battle.

Her 2 friends, despite having no idea what to do agreed to help her facing challenges like their family approvals and the station technicalities. After initial set backs, came the epiphany "Why not play 28 songs of each state as a tribute on Independence day".  Universal fact - Music brings people together, and its the best way to reach out.

The film touches your heart with the concept of Unity in diversity. We may be 28, but we are still one -  "The united states of India". So the people of Manipur are as important to us as the people of  Maharashtra or any other state for that matter. The one line i loved the most was "Mumbai: yaha pura India basta hain".

The movie talks about women safety and middle class issues too where a simple middle class girl is forced to suppress her dreams because her father doesn't approve them.

The film also teaches us to be creative, rather imitating or impersonating others, to be yourself.

In the end you can achieve anything, if you have the confidence, right attitude and friends by your side. Moral : Bring it on 'life'. If life throws lemons at you, make lemonade from it and ask for watermelons next, obviously for a watermelon juice.

Few things missing in the ending:
Whom did Rhea chooses, her ex or the CA?
They never actually got any real investors?
How can you measure the success of the station based on 1 day of airtime?
Is smoking that one cigarette in office was the cause of the heart attack?

I think, what the director wants to say in the end is "Success doesn't matter, standing up to the challenge is".

Thank you Mr. Basu and Mr Khurana for keeping it real time and again. Keep making these kind of awesome movies.

Thumps up for Sunsilk Real FM.
