Director - Kaushik Mukherjee aka Q
Genre - Drama
This small but explosive film from the director known as Q changes everything we've ever deduced about Indian cinema. Blunt, provocative and with a tip of the hat towards arthouse cool, it is a movie which will confound and outrage those who are weened on the soothing confines of Bollywood. Featuring the life of a self-taught rapper with a talent so obvious to the viewer but remained undiscovered by and large throughout the film, the joy of watching this boy's life is in the feeling of being privy to something illicit and without the knowledge of those around us. This is its exclusive gift to us. Take it or leave it. 'Gandu' doesn't compromise. The director even put his own wife in a highly explicit scene here so we gather he is very much like the lead too, someone who suffers a great deal for his art and doesn't take the easy way out. Much of Bollywood subscribe to taking the well-traveled path. We're glad Q is an adventurer in his filmmaking spirit.
