Traffic Signal: dont jump it

February 23, 2007 at 1:33 pm Leave a comment

critically trashed; and true that it’s not for the ones, who prefer buying the colorful, and fantasy flavored bollywood pies. there are only a few movies that zoom into the dirty bags of the society and try to dig the up-front reality. Traffic Signal revolves around that corner, where the color is of black and grey. to me, it is a noble effort for a movie that deliberately keeps the pinks and reds away. set up in a documentary style, the camera simply pans the sreet-world of Mumbai suburbs, which crawls out of its nest in the broad daylight; find its livelihood around the traffic signals, where the city life takes a little break, albeit forcefully. it’s quite interesting to see the synchronized operations of these people, who would do anything for that every inch, which belongs to anybody and everybody – the roads, the streets. Armed with some real good performances by Ranveer Shorey, Konkona and the other little-knowns, Traffic Signal is a simple on-your-face story, which is worthy of your little time; So, stop over. and despite the hammerings by the critics, the movie has performed better than its big-budget peers; declared ‘Average’ in the latest Box-office reports, despite being surrounded by the big releases since it landed up on the theatres.
