Well made short movie
29 September 2011 | by xdsi97See all my reviews

Another well made short movie. The camera work and editing was outstanding. Crafty story telling, but not much story. The acting of the main actor was good. It is a difficult role and Samrat Chakrabarthy has stepped up to the occasion. The supporting cast who did not have much screen time, and were not bad either. The time line was not particularly clear - whether the events took place on a single evening or over multiple days is unclear. Also the title of the movie is vague. Yes, the movie is about Gareeb Nawaz... and yes there is a taxi involved... But why the movie had to named "Gareeb Nawaz's Taxi" did not make sense to me (nor to the other folks who watched this film with me). We were sitting there waiting for some action in the cab, and the movie unfolds, rather strangely, elsewhere. If there is one critical thing that this movie lacks, then I'd say it is the "chase factor" - which keeps one involved in the movie... we felt that movie meandered and ended without really concluding. But that is something that most short films seem to lack.
