Thumbs up Manorama - Six Feet Under : Good suspense drama after a long time.

I will not reveal the suspsense of this film as the director really manages to keep the suspense till the last few minutes when it all unfolds, and even then the final revelation is really something.

Abhay Deol acts really well in this suspense drama set in a arid Rajasthan village by the name of Lakhot. The movie is inspired in part by a Roman Polanski movie (which I have seen many years ago) but the desi touch and treatment is really good! Dont look up Roman Polanski's films now on the net lest you spoil the fun of this Hindi inspiration.

The story is about a junior engineer in the Public Words Department (PWD) who has been suspended from his job pending an inquiry into allegations of bribery and corruption. Now Abhay Deol's character has written a detective novel called Manorama but it has been a flop. It sold only 200 copies. He wanted to be a famous novelist, but now is a engineer and recently suspended!

Anyway, one day a woman (played by Sarika) drops at his doorstep and says that she has a detective assignment for him. He is to take photographs of her husband who is having an affair with some woman. Her husband is no oridinary man but the local Memeber Of Legislative Assembly (MLA).

The movie really kicks into gear when the MLA's wife ends up committing suicide.

I dont want to reveal any more of the plot line, but I can say that you will spend a good 2 hours watching this movie and not feel stupid at having watched something boring. Its a good movie, slow at some points, but overall a good suspense movie.

The actors are not that well known, but some of them are old timers. Overall, a good Saturday afternoon experience.

1.40 ki local...........saw it last week..............man o man.......mind blowing movie. U know these shitheads Johars & Chopras & Roshans (after kkrish) shud just understand what excatly cinema is and putting in money in crores & chweteya SUPERstar cast can't help at all.

From last 3-4 years thankz God, Indian cinema has got a new brigade of young people who dare to make parallel-commercial cinema (all thankz to people like Madhur Bhandarkar, nagesh kuknoor) and gave us around 40-50 good sound movies, with amazing low budget and starcast

Re: Manorama - Six Feet Under : Good suspense drama after a long time.

Had this movie on my disk for more than a month... today watched it just by sheer chance.. odd name.. wtf... I can't be more mistaken by a name... M-SFU is a fantastic suspence thriller... each actor has put his worth in it and the plot unfolds so gradually and teasingly that one has to see the movie to feel what I am feeling right now...

should have seen it earlier if not for the odd name... don't know how I missed this thread... these are what movies are about...

Re: Manorama - Six Feet Under : Good suspense drama after a long time.

btw I loved to watch Raima Sen with her large expressive eyes, nice complexion, traditional looks - kind of beauty that I appreciate. She was looking quite refreshing in her simple salwar kameez suit / sarees.. simple indian clothing impart so much freshness and beauty...

She too acted well, hope to see her more often. Reminded me of Suchitra Sen.

Re: Manorama - Six Feet Under : Good suspense drama after a long time.

Desibaba, this is a good movie. They remade the Hollywood flick China Town, but added good desi masala. Gul Panang gave total Savita Bhabhi vibes

Re: Manorama - Six Feet Under : Good suspense drama after a long time.

Saw this movie . liked it very much . very taut thriller . I had really kept it aside as a C grade off-beat film . Maybe I should check out Dev D too...
