Anurag Kashyap suggests another film for those disappointed with Choked!
Sajid Ali -
Anurag Kashyap's Choked which was released on 5th June on Netflix opened to mixed reviews and people had their reservations on the film, just like any other Anurag’s film which is always received with criticism. Can’t help, the man always tries to express the reality through the medium he’s an expert. The satirical thriller is set in the backdrop of demonetization 2016 in India and the effect it had on the working class of its citizens and how the riches (Powerful people) manipulated the situation to rake in the new currency. Choked has its lows and highs but makes sure to entertain you. Saiyami Kher and Amruta Subhash were amazing with Roshan Mathews.
Along with Choked another Hindi film released on Zee 5 on 5th June. Chintu Ka Birthday directed by the Singh Brothers, Satyanshu & Devnashu Singh was a poignant tale of a 6-year-old whose birthday celebration lies on a thin thread set in the backdrop of Baghdad during the Iraqi war. The film’s lead character Vedant Chibber melts your heart with his commendable performance.
Earlier this afternoon Anurag Kashyap took it to twitter recommending, “People who loved “Choked” ... time to discover “Chintu ka Birthday” and for people who were disappointed by “Choked”.. go see “Chintu ka Birthday”.. by @satysingh and @KDevanshuSingh our very own “Singh Brothers”..”
