Kalki Koechlin comes with back to back films releasing two in a row within a week. The film Ribbon happens to be a family drama, which talks about real time issues. A happy couple who is fighting day to day challenges in its life coping to be perfect right from having a home to car and other luxuries. Suddenly the lady becomes pregnant and things change. Rest is history we all know what goes in a typical middle class family. So, what happens the next can be interesting to catch in the near by screen at your place.
The film Ribbon has loads of stuff we see in our day to day life. The story seems refreshing with the same old story we see in the next door. But the realism seen in the film makes it interesting to catch as it has some important lesson to check but without refraining to become too preachy at the end. The best part of the film is that with the realism found in the film one cannot seen any kind of biased opinion, which mars the film at the end. You can find the film taking the audience to fly over the wall for having the view of the insider. At this juncture when we have films to make money we have an interesting and refreshing story of a couple which is not just about marriage or managing life being a parent but at the same time it gives something without taking resort in the preachy mode.
Now talking about the performances, Kalki is an incredible actor she seemed so comfortable playing the Corporate Strategist along with a would be mother keeping her professional goal aside for her family thing. She was just apt for this role and has given the best over the silver screen. Next is Sumeet the Permanent Roommates fame actor this time is seen adopting all together a new mantle for the film. Interestingly the actors were so engrossed in their characters that most of their dialogues were extempore and the makers didnt even care to record with their orignal ones. That’s has changed the fate of the film adding too much authenticity in the most articulated fashion. That’s the beauty of this film and the lead actors playing their role of couple is simply outstanding. So was the other aspects of the film, including direction, performance and other similar things that made a mark.
Ribbon The Last Word
Not all ideas in B Town films are able to translate so well into film but with Ribbon one can claim that things really went perfect. Well the credit certainly goes to the lead actors who have put their heart and soul with their committed and convincing performances giving a film too refreshing and real. So, what’s your say on this, waiting to see your comments!
