Ravina Rawal's Film Reviews
Too many characters, too little exploration, many loopholes, very little emotional connect. Aurangzeb is a story of potentially epic proportions (and near-epic run time), but it struggles to be coherent and its final conclusion is unable to match the build-up and premise.
The combination will remind you why you love the movies and why you still return to the theatre week after week, wide-eyed and hopeful in spite of the tripe we too often have to endure. If you must fault Bombay Talkies for something, perhaps one could complain that for a 100-year celebration, it isn’t weighty enough, but that’s about all.
