Yeh Mera India (2009) Yeh Mera India: N.Chandra strikes back
Rating: 3 out of 5*
Starring: Anupam Kher, Parvin Dabas, Perizad Zorabian, Vijay Raaz, Atul Kulkarni, Seema Biswas, Rajpal Yadav and Smilie Suri
Director: N.Chandra
Despite having delivered flops for a long time now, filmmaker N.Chandra is best remembered for his three films – the hard hitting Ankush and Pratighaat and of course the Ek Do Teen number film Tezaab which made Madhuri an overnight star. With his latest offering Y.M.I – Yeh Mera India, Chandra is back to his Ankush-Pratighaat form which made you stand up and notice the raw energy of his subjects.
Y.M.I like Oscar winner film, Crash peeks into the lives of a 12 people from diverse backgrounds and weaves together multiple stories which include racial discrimination, communal bias, immigrant issues, class and caste issues etc with all the events unfolding in a single day in the city of Mumbai where his characters are based.
What makes Y.M.I a winner are its terrific dialogues and Chandra’s handling of disturbing sequences with every single actor from the ensemble cast delivering an excellent performance. The manner in which Chandra has succeeded in connecting all the stories together is also laudable. Each single story connects with you and it is stuff that you can instantly relate to happening around you. The only issue however remains are their culminations. Chandra has tried to keep the ending happy rather than having a dark end which films tackling such subjects end up with. The length also could have been around two hours than going to almost two and a half hours.
Anupam Kher, Seema Biswas, Rajpal Yadav, Atul Kulkarni and Vijay Raaz are the most impressive of the lot. Rest all actors lend good support.
Do check out this film, if you are in mood for a high voltage drama experience. You wont regret your decision.
