Bhopal: A Tragic Walk Into History

 
Bhopal: A Tragic Walk Into History

Movie: Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain


Director:Ravi Kumar


Cast: Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton, Kal Penn, Rajpal Yadav, Tannishtha Chatterjee

Claps for: Telling the true story of the tragedy through the lives of characters in the film.


Slaps for: Perhaps missing the bigger picture through little tales.


Story: This story is pitched as a dramatized version of the true happenings during the 'Bhopal Gas Tragedy'. It follows a series of events that led to a catastrophe, killing thousands.


Performances: Rajpal Yadav was perfect in his role of a poor man who struggles to keep up with the needs of his family. Kal Penn was convincing in his role of a journalist who wanted to make a difference. Tannishtha Chatterjee gave a decent performance. Veteran Martin Sheen portrayed his character well, though he wasn't the quintessential villain that he has been made out to be!


Direction: Ravi Kumar puts across the 'Bhopal Gas Tragedy' through a very interesting story on-screen. He slips in the carelessness of the factory members through parts of the story. Though a very intense story was expected, it only took a steep turn towards the last few minutes of the film. The rest of the film wasn't all that intense and focused more on the other tiny tales that were meant to add a personal touch to this mass tragedy.


Combo-on-offer: Good performances + A story of a tragedy that still haunts the people of Bhopal= Watch it if you're not 'Entertainment' hungry; this docudrama won't hurt..


Final verdict: We give this film Claps for taking up such a grave incident in the history of India.
