Club 60 Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s Verdict (CNN IBNlive)

Unfortunately writer-director Sanjay Tripathy can’t lift this script from its quicksand of predictability, and can’t avoid the mawkish melodrama that stories like these inevitably slip into. That, along with a clumsy, overlong climax, makes ‘Club 60’ a rather dull affair in the end. I’m going with two out of five – it’s a sincere film, but one that could’ve benefited from smarter writing and slicker treatment.

Though a bit stretched with a run time of over 2 hours, CLUB 60 does manage to keep you absorbed for most parts thanks to the message it attempts to convey. Additionally, the gradual progression of the story, detailing each character while taking the film ahead, is seamlessly executed, leaving the audience no time to stagnate on any particular topic. The plot also builds up to an emotional climax and what really works in favor is the optimism it attempts to convey through the characters. On the whole, CLUB 60 talks of senior citizens facing a late-life crisis due to personal loss convincingly. An emotional journey of friendship, warmth, generosity and the indomitable human spirit, it’s an honest attempt for sure.

Club 60’s heart lies in its writing – specifically dialogue – and the stellar show by its cast. The screenplay breaks many contemporary conventions in its construction. Scenes take their time and meander; there is a barrage of innocuous interactions reflecting lives without frills. The smallest doses of happiness and sorrow found in routine banter and plot rendered meaningless. But all of this contributes in measures big and small to the fabric of the film, much like a Mike Leigh movie. Indeed, Club 60 loses some its charm in the last fifteen minutes when “plot” kicks in and a definite course for the climax is charted out.

Another common malaise this film suffers from is the glorification of personal tragedy. We all know that the most powerful moments on screen are those that arrive without preamble or extreme dramatisation. They hit you in waves with a gradually increasing intensity. Club 60 starts off on a promising note but its downward spiral comes faster than one could apprehend. Now would be a great time to stop referencing old films if filmmakers really want to break new grounds with fresh story ideas.

The film is marred by not knowing when to stop. There’s a lovely climactic moment involving Tareek and Saayra beyond which the film is dragged just to get us to leave teary-eyed. Some of the characters are given sad back-stories (one featuring the graceful Zarina Wahab in a wheelchair), which feel needlessly manipulative: more adept direction would have done without the over-statement. Still, I would recommend ‘Club 60’, because it brings into the frame an age group euphemistically called the ‘silvers’, and by touching a chord with its performances.

The otherwise well-intentioned film is slightly marred by its length. The 137 minutes-long film could have easily been tighter, done away with a few songs and cut short the rather longish voiceover by Fraooque Sheikh in the beginning. The climax in which Dr. Tariq is forced to report in the operation room is not easy to digest. Yet, the few demerits of Club 60 outweigh the genuineness with it has been made.
