Waiting (2016)

A very devastating subject is tackled head on in this sensitive but matter of fact film. Director Anu Menon serves us the harsh truth, curt and upfront, without giving much chance to recover or prepare.

Kalki and Naseer cleverly represent different stages of the grieving process, and also differing adaptation to the never ending tunnel of ‘waiting’ for their loved ones to recover. Their characters are full of insights of a reality which asks us to face our worst fears. Rajat Kapoor has a tricky role to play which shows us the plight of doctors. They are human, making them as imperfect as any of us. Let’s throw in the reality of who is actually there for you in your difficult time and voila! You have some very insane truths to digest!

The most difficult questions with no answers. A heart wrenching film!

3/5
