Although it was not developed as one wish. A fun crowd sourced comedy in the Capoor in films made fun entertainment.
Pirandello will approve the Spirit behind “RK / RKAY“. A small-scale identity comedy set out in the world of films about a writer-actor. In which the main character walked out of his new picture and to the real world. The complex problem is that the character is also personified by the director.
Which leads to a fun game at the cost of being very light. With the idea of a free presence and agency. Can the character of fiction regard his ownership of its creator? This crowdfunded love work cannot produce much buzz. But will be appreciated by the audience looking for pleasant entertainment.
The experienced Director of RK (Kapoor) could not say his finger on exactly why:
The 1960s inspired caper where he played the Mahboob protagonist. It puts the real tension about Seema, his wife (Kubbra Sait), and frustration during the editing only made everything worse, so his crew suggested he took a ten-day break to gather his mind. That Mahboob disappeared from the rush – he wasn’t even harmful anymore.
No one can explain what happened, but he did not have a film if RK did not find Mahboob. Alloys know where to look for. His young son (Abhishek Sharma) reminded his father that since he created a character, he knew him better than others. That’s when he was thinking of seeing the train station. Did he find Mahboob trying to go to Kolkata to see his girlfriend Gulabo (Mallika Sherawat)?
RK brought the same Mahboob confused back home, many with family entertainment, who appreciated the culinary skills of unexpected visitors. When Mahboob settled and began developing a different character from the pre-script. He refused the pressure to return to the film, especially after killed him in the final.
There are so many ways “RK / RKAY” could make Kapoor somewhat disappointing:
Not to develop different themes and characters. Starting with the relationship between RK and Seema through Sait. So it should be noticed as the Kukoo “Sacred Games”.
The emissions the warmth that implies. More In-depth than the guaranteed role is given). Time running short films can easily accommodate more active involvement. Even though it is still fun with all meta-narratives and mahboob wrestling suddenly acquiring agents he never has. The same applies to the self-RK crisis.
Visually, Kapoor and DP Rafey Mahmood have fun with the contrast between empty colours. A little connects the honour of the 1960s and today’s tonality today. Watt Harsher followed Mahboob to the real world, giving him a lasting spotlight and requires almost bleak lighting for others; The whole look feels very occult, and the stage.
As if everyone is in the diorama that can see from all sides. The regular music collaborator of Kapoor Sagar Desai provides optimistic songs that add a high pleasant taste.
Kapoor teases viewers with metaphysical questions.
Especially about egocentrism and an essential role in making art. But it seems always to have memorization, self-correcting answers.
There is not much room for audience participation in this requested and answered narrative, not when Mahboob is always ready with hairy criticisms, “How do you know for sure you are there? Maybe you are also part of someone’s story. Only other characters. You only have Words given to you. “
Again, the line could be funny, but not, because we should like Mahboob, or at least understand why a friend of RK’s wife seems (Kubbra Sait) tells him that Mahboob “is far better than [husband] you have.”
For this type of type to work, you must believe in the power that reveals the film cliché. Because while we might not always buy what Mahboob sold. “He felt” and “he believed” was all, even RK admitted.
