'Aankhon Dekhi' written and directed by Rajat Kapoor is a close, tender observation of its flawlessly performed protagonist Bauji, who decides that he will believe in obly what he has actually seen, and not what others tell him. The story, frankly, is itself a product of its sharp, poignant script.
'Ankhon Dekhi' is a straightforward satire which goes beyond a classy comedy. Its a compelling story which builds on the extraordinary qualities of its protagonist, played by Sanjay Mishra. There are other members in this family too, played by Seema Pahwa as the wife of Bauji, Rajat himself in a quite laid back performanve as the younger brother of Sanjai, and Namit Das as Bauji's son-in-law. But none of them match the extraordinary prowess of Sanjay of breathing life into a character ajd make him lift from the paper, and eventually, from the cinema screens.
And with him soars the middle-class-valued India. In a dog-biting comedy, the vestiages of a forgotten film culture, the sharp, unflinchingly amusing lines.
Over everything, 'Ankhon Dekhi' is a stunning achievement. Its 3.5 for the film since it meanders in the second half a little, but for Sanjay's performance, an additional half makes it 4 out of 5 in total for 'Ankhon Dekhi'. I plead you watch it.
After Hearing Positive Things Over The Internet I Watched It And I Really Liked It..It's Honesty, It's Humour, It's Theme & Story And Ofcourse Acting Of Sanjay Mishra..So Glad That He Got Filmfare Best Actor In Critic's Category
Ankhon Dekhi. It is not just another off beat movie from Rajat Kapoor. Instead, it is his big leap as a film maker. He teams up with versatile Sanjay Mishra and result is incredible thought provoking film.
Ankhon Dekhi centers around Raje Bauji, played by Sanjay Mishra who, after a dramatic incident, decides that he will only believe what he sees with his eyes. This one little idea changes Bauji for ever. The strength of the movie is its sharp performances and authentic down town setup. Then there are delicious dialogues, delicious sequences of people first questioning Bauji and then following him blindly. All supporting actors including Rajat Kapoor also do an excellent job.
This movie is about feeling and experiencing what Bauji felt and then doing your own interpretations. I am going with fantastic 8 out of 10 for Ankhon Dekhi. It is about extra ordinary tale of an ordinary person.
