Luck by Chance, a movie about the movie making business, is very good.
Raw. Gritty edged. Quick. Honest.
Some say you need to be an insider to “get it”.
Which is pshaw, stuff and nonsense.
(Film mags weren’t allowed at home. We saw maybe two movies/year. But I still “got it”.)
The movie picks up the thread from Zubeidaa in a way. That real life, manic magic.
Excellent story. Perfect casting.
Great dialogue- particularly when an incredulous scriptwriter pencils in unbelievable scenes on demand, also the screen test ones.
Farhan Akhtar is an unbelievable actor- perfect.
Sleek. Sharp. Maybe it cuts too close.
Just the perfect movie to ponder past a sleepless one am. And you wonder how the same week can have both a great surprise and a what the *%*surprise.
Zoya Akhtar’s got it made.
