Bollywood industry has become quite wild and broad since quite some time. Now almost every genre is attempted to churn out movies on. You come across various movies being made on various subjects and on the subjects which were once considered to be taboo to try the hand on. The viewers too have broadened their mind to accept every type of topics. This surely gives strength and confidence to the filmmakers to make films on all subjects even the ones which are considered ‘wild’. Miss Lovely, the movie releases today, too carries a unique and something of a wild subject. It is based on the 80s’ C-grave entertainment industry of Bombay and talks about the story of two brothers, whose bread and butter is making sleazy horror movies.
Talking about the story of the movie, it is not novel at all rather we have watched numerous movies on this kind of plotline many a time on celluloid. But yes, the story holds the attention and the screenplay is what catches the attention and pulse of the viewer. What interests the viewer is the 80s era created in the film remarkably.
Ashim Ahluwalia directs Miss Lovely that tells the story of two brothers’ passionate caustic relationship. Sonu (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and Vicky (Anil George) are two brothers. Sonu’s downfall begins happening when he bumps into a mysterious woman Pinky (Niharika Singh). The first half of the movie carries everything to lure the viewers – action, sex trade, drama and skin-show. In this half, the viewer also gets confused a little bit as to where the movie is yet to go. But the post interval portion of the film unzips the reality on viewers. The script is well-penned but the slow pacing is what disappoints at times.
Both Ashim Ahluwalia and Uttam Sirur write the story and the script of the movie. They get brawny points for writing attractive story and screenplay. Cinematography is nice. Editing is fine. Direction is first-rate.
Nawazuudin Siddiqui delivers the fine performance. Anil George is wonderful. Debutante Niharika Singh is lovely and acts well. Others too attract with their respective parts.
On the whole, Miss Lovely attracts from start to end with gripping script, power-packed performances and fine direction.
