Qissa Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By:  Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Both the cinematography and the background score are nicely moody and leave you with a sense of foreboding. ‘Qissa’ is in the tradition of a compelling folktale that you can’t shake off once you’ve heard it. I’m going with three out of five. I recommend that you watch the film for its unique voice.

Qissa has a disturbing effect and in that, lies the film’s strength. It is also shot beautifully across deserts, snow-capped mountains and lush, green landscape. Irrfan, Tisca and Tillotama give A-grade performances, making this film imminently watchable. If only the filmmaker had decided to buck the pace up for a bit, the points being made here would have hit home harder.

In a world in the grip of growing religious intolerance and rampant sectarian violence, and in a country that still has to constantly remind itself of the need to save its daughters, Qissa has unmistakable resonance. But the film is provocative poetry, and not preachy polemic, which makes it a true work of art. Qissa is that rare cinematic treat that no genuine film lover should deprive himself/herself of.

Qissa is ‘dastaangoi’, and much more than that. One of the best films in recent times, it’s an experience not to be forgotten easily. Your experiences in life will decide your views towards the film and vice-versa. We are going with 4.5 for Anup Singh’s idiosyncratic drama Qissa: The Tale of a Lonely Ghost.

‘Qissa’ is lambent, lovely, and completely seductive up till this point. It then tumbles into another zone, where an accident leads to a death, and the appearance of a ‘ghost’, and the tale stutters. Some of the fluidity goes missing, and it becomes a little too opaque. But its joys are greater, and are for savouring: the lilt of the rustic Punjabi the characters speak.

Qissa is a performance heavy film with a story that will touch your heart and make you think. The treatment and execution of the film is mature yet engaging. Dialogues speak from the heart to you as the tale progresses. Irrfan is brilliant as Umber the man caught in a two fold battle of protecting his family lineage and also dealing with the changing political situation.

Irrfan, undoubtedly one of the best actors we have amidst us, owns this film with such perfect ease that going with the mood of the film, it seems like he could be born as Umber Singh in a parallel world. Shome as the traumatised Kanwar is excellent and so is the lovely Rasika. Tisca Chopra also lends good support to the film.

Nevertheless, Qissa bears a sinking stigmatic framework similar to Pakistani filmmaker Shoaib Mansoor’s groundbreaking Bol-perhaps the highest compliment a social drama can be accorded. Be a strong viewer. Acknowledge this one.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:  Surabhi Redkar Site:Koimoi

Qissa is a painful story dealing with issues of identity crisis and is particularly hard-hitting. The raw nature of this film is not meant for everyone and so watch this film if you want to see something meaningful.
