Gali Guleiyan - Movie Reviews

A uniquely told catharsis
Manoj Bajpayee Delivers Outstanding Performance
This is not your regular Bollywood offering. It is a claustrophobic tale of a man caught inside a warren of small, dark narrow alleys, where you can barely see the sky, and although he wants to escape, he is caught by the overhead wires. It is also the story of a young lad, abused by his father and brow beaten into accepting his fate that means no escaping from this hell hole... The film is shot beautifully and all characters are brilliantly etched in their pain. You will come away shook.

At one point Khuddus admits, Main kho gaya hoon.” It pretty much sums up the film’s intent — it hopes to understand a man who feels lost and doesn’t want to be found.

The film is technically brilliant. Editor Chris Witt has juxtaposed the two tales with finesse and cinematographer Kai Middendorp has used low lighting to his advantage to give a haunting feel to the film. Dana Niu’s score too sounds just right for the narrative.

Dipesh Jain's Gali Guleiyan whittles the world down into countless lanes, and suggests that in every lane is a man looking to escape.
