The Last Act Movie Review

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Madhureeta Mukherjee Site:TimesofIndia(TOI)
Conceptualized by Anurag Kashyap, ' The Last Act', roped in 12 first-time directors to make 12 short-films that form a part of the same feature film. Every director brings in his own style to this montage-of-mysteries, in most parts it's riveting, leaving you entangled in a web of curious cases. There are truck-loads of actors (not all from mainstream cinema), who perform their bit well, intensifying the plot as they go along. In the second half, the thrill goes thanda in some moments, and you're desperately waiting for the suspense to explode. Of course, with a dozen clues to deconstruct, even good 'ol Sherlock Holmes, Poirot and our desi Agent Vinod would be straining their brains. With a unique concept at hand and an all-new directors' gang, getting the 'act together' is no mean feat. Team of 12 - Take a bow, this stage is all yours.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Roshni Devi Site:Koimoi
What’s Good: The very concept of 12 directors collaborating for one film; the direction; music. What’s Bad: Too many characters stretch the mystery too long; the meandering stories. Loo Break: None. Watch or Not?: Watch it if you have the patience to untangle a web and for something that you rarely get to see in Indian cinema.

  1. Very few filmmakers are today, truly determined, ardent & constantly in process to change the face and fate of Indian cinema through their hugely significant experiments. Mr. Anurag Kashyap, in my views, leads the lot.

    Based on a plot conceived by him, THE LAST ACT is a class act for most parts. A mostly mutilated body is found with 12 different clues around it, with each one heading to 12 cities for a search that plays with your mind from every damn angle.

    Directed by 12 independent filmmakers, some subplots genuinely serve the purpose to set it as a strong suspense thriller and some have an imaginative experimental feel but a couple of them only provides entertainment and don’t feel bad but some even look really out of place and immature.

    No matter what they contribute to the main plot, each part will thrill you individually in their own settings, sense and nature of locality. My only ‘put off’ situation was the final act where we all needed an awe-struck overwhelming moment to celebrate the failure of our intelligence but sadly, it only tries to mock at it with not a disappointing but unsatisfactory explosion to all those smart subplots.

    Still, it’s a praiseworthy effort and a good watch if you’re looking for a perfect thriller that strongly doesn’t have regular flares and flavours of the genre and provides, at least tries to, a completely different experience. WORTH A DEKKO…[3/5]
