Farhan Akhtar's Film Is Listless Fare
Adi Contractor, a man who can procure anything is given a task to find a fakir who can bury himself in the sand head first and bring him to Venice, Italy as art installation. He persuades Sattar to play the part. What could have been a fabulous satire on the world of art ends up being tedious because it is directed badly, except for a masterclass in acting by Annu Kapoor.

Surapur's directorial hand is steady and assured throughout. While being overly fond of the fisheye lens, which gives wide-angle distortion to too many shots, he can be forgiven this one affectation because of the control he exerts over the rising emotions and the interplay of characters who sometimes cannot even understand each other.
