Movie Review: Mulk: A genuine movie with great impact! ***½

1699th BLOG POST -->>

Not every movie touches your heart and few those touch are really made with good intention and spirit. The makers are totally clear about what they want to showcase in the 120-150 minutes and ensure that when the audience leave the theatre, there is some change in their thought process and they start accepting life or situations of life more strongly and positively rather than complaining about the same stuff incessantly. One such movie is “Mulk”. The impact that the movie can leave upon the people of India can be very incredible if people take away the message and consider it to be free of agenda and politics.

Mulk is very beautifully made and speaks what it intends to very simply without complicating the narrative like in Shahid. The first half of the movie is very slow where basically the director focuses on showing how this Muslim family is friends with Hindus in their locality and there is no ill-thoughts among them except little distance between ladies where they restrain from eating at a Muslim’s house due to different eating habits. Rest, everything is good. Then movie also shows us that this Muslim family headed by Rishi Kapoor has also accepted a Hindi girl very simply as their daughter-in-law. This role is being played very beautifully by Taapsee Pannu.

The second half paces into the subject which this movie wanted to portray right from the 1st scene where one of the young boys in this Muslim family is been proved as terrorist and now as per prejudice and judgmental attitude of people, they have termed the whole family as terrorist and sided almost the whole Muslim community. The same Hindu people who enjoyed and danced with this family labels them as terrorists and asks them to go to Pakistan. And now the courtroom scenes begin where Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu throws some very great dialogues. Though Taapsee struggling little bit in big monologues but the scenes are very effective and speaks very well what they wished just like in Pink.

Overall, the movie is a very good attempt at delivering a social message with good content without becoming too preachy and becoming one-sided with Muslims. It all looks genuine which becomes very difficult when movies are made on such topics. I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
