I will like to second you here ( sorry for just butting in as you don't know me .LOL).....i totally agree with you on that. Real life is no long sweeping soggy melodrama either. Things go wrong , we lose a lot and from what we have seen of tragedy , we all learn to deal with pain and trauma - people shatter - like Sabrina and Jessica's parents must have. But you pick up your courage , gather your guts and do something about it. Sabrina Lall didn't sail through those 7 years of turmoil ( if i have the figure right) by being a crybaby or sobbing all over. The truth was in front of her and she fought for it by putting pain in the backburner and going proactive. Vidya's portrayal of Sabrina's grit and her coming to in sync with her sister's loss and dealing with it was just fine.

Isn't that what we all do? Deal with what has happened and get up and do something about it? There is a limit upto which you can cry and suffer. For Sabrina, it all boiled down to getting her sister's killer behind bars and i am doubtful if seeing her going raw on emotions would have convinced me that she was in psycho-emotional state to pull off what she did.

I hope i made sense. Smile

Yes I totally agree.. the most interesting thing was that no where in the movie did i feel that the director was trying to manipulate the viewers.. or trying very hard for everyone to think it the same way.. everything seemed very passive to me.. and honestly if i would have watched this movie 5 years ago.. i think i would have hated it.. but after enduring so much drama on tv, in movies and watching such heavy content i think i needed this sorta movie for a change.. where things were very straight forward and real..

Havent watched the movie yet but if Vidya did give a subtle performance then I'm sure I'll love it. i'm exactly like how you described Vidya, I'm anything but dramatic and in rough times, I mostly have one expression on my face and the most I do is let some tears flow quietly. I'm looking forward to the movie now, thank you ladygaga Smile
 
I don't know if you will like the movie or not.. every viewer is different and everyone reacts to a movie in a different way.. read everyone's views and reviews and then decide if you wanna watch it.

Clariz! Hug.....long time, sweetz! How's life been? Embarrassed....I am happy that NOKJ is doing well. Rani, Vidya are actresses par excellence and it is great to see them carry a film on their shoulders. NOKJ , inspite of it's faults is a celebration of heroine-centric cinema and subjects that matter to us as a society. I hope Rani and Vidya continue to rule because they are what i call ACTRESSES  in this generation of Vanity Fair closets where costumes of heroines have more expressions than them. LOL

i dunno about others but i wud cry like maniacs if my sister dies, my furstration wud be at its heights!! and the threatening was not shown as well as it shud've been shown, also the muder sequence does not give u the goosebumps, even then media attacking or the media interviews does not give u the josh, the court sequences were not that brilliant either, I feel the movie had to be longer to have a better and inspiring screenplay!
 

If i look at your POV, i agree. But then, i guess we all have individual reactions and sensitivity quotients - or should i say the way we tackle pain and loss. I agree with you that the script falters in places but because the overall picture works, i let it pass. Maybe we just look at things and life in different ways , so our POVs are different. Smile
