Ashdoc's movie review---3 storeys

3 storeys is a movie set in Mumbai's ubiquitous chawl system . A chawl is a building that has two room dwellings that open out into a common balcony that spans the entire front of the floor . Mostly lower middle class people stay there and chawls are a hotchpotch of people from different communities staying together . The movie shows 3 stories of 3 families staying on three storeys of the chawl .

The first story is that of Flory Mendonca , a woman who has lost her son and husband long ago and wants to sell her dwelling in the chawl . But she wants to sell at four times the actual value of the dwelling , and hence gets no buyer . But one day a young man ( played by Pulkit Samrat ) comes to buy it and gets ready to buy at the excessive high price . After the deal he asks about her son and his father and learns about how they died . But as the conversation proceeds we are in for a real shock . It's best not to reveal what lies in store for the viewer , but the shock gave a real punch in the face .

The second story is of Varsha Atre ( Masumeh Makhija ) , who is a marathi lady having an alcoholic husband who beats her though he behaves well with their son . One day she makes friends with a newly arrived lady who invites her to her home in the chawl . But as the newly arrived lady tells her about her husband ( played by Sharman Joshi ) , old memories tumble out and Varsha finds herself confronted by her past....

The third story is about love between a young muslim boy and hindu girl . But as they elope due to the opposition of their parents , they are confronted by a cruel truth about their past that shatters their love story apart....

While this is going on , the attention of all men in the chawl is on the attention seeker of the chawl ( played by Richa Chaddha ) who struts about in backless blouses and with belly chain strapped around her belly having dalliances with men . She is the one who is narrating us all these stories , but when the truth about her is revealed by her we have sympathy for her .

As old secrets tumble out and persons are forced to come face to face with past mistakes , we realise that every building has stories to tell . Of love , of longing , of bad things happening and good tidings coming . It is important that we are listening to a good story teller who makes the stories of ordinary human beings spicier than reality . And in this movie , we are listening to a good story teller .

Background music is good and songs are better . Photography is decent and colours are okay . Acting is decent by everyone . But the movie is for those who like off beat movies and not who like run of the mill entertainers .

Verdict---decent .

Three stars out of five .

another disturbing trend is less number of songs in films . some films i saw recently have no songs . since we have very few music videos nowadays , soon the tradition of hindi music may become less important too .

Sadly, Hindi was being kept alive by Bollywood. Songs already stopped in movies, because CD trade finished, whatever is being written is mainly for item songs, for first 30 seconds of song, to sell caller tunes with catchy raunchy lyrics.

After this I think Hindi newspapers will stop, and people will ask why learn Hindi in schools, what practical purpose it has?

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---3 storeys

whats the spoiler for flory mendonca? I dont think I am going to watch this movie....
I can try a guess at the other two 'reveals' the muslim and the hindu couple have family history related to bombay riots, someone from one family killed someone from the other family... or the boy is adopted...

the sharman joshi story sounds like the marathi lady lost her flower to him in the past.

spoilers ahead

you are partially right about the sharman joshi story . no deflowering , but a love affair was indeed there between the two . they planned to elope but due to some mishap could not meet on that day . girl was marathi and boy was bhaiyya . good emotional stuff but meant to taunt right wing forces--- raj thackaray .


the muslim boy hindu girl angle also to taunt anti love jehad right wing forces cos girl wants to convert to islam to chagrin of officer who gives marriage certificate . he tells them to come after one month cos 1 month notice required in inter faith marriage . but police sent by both parents catch them and boy's father tells the truth---that the girl was born out of dalliance between him and her mother , so boy and girl are half brother/sister to each other . lots of tears by lovers but marriage cancelled .

flory angle most interesting . pulkit samrat agrees to give four fold price to flory for her dwelling . why ? her son was killed trying to rob a jeweller long ago . she still has his stolen gems . he had an accomplice who she does not know , but was instrumental in putting the boy on bad ways . she has deliberately kept four fold price because the only one ready to pay would be the accomplice---for the gems obviously . and pulkit is the accomplice . but she has poisoned the coffee she gave him and he dies . revenge complete .
