Anurag Basu directs Life in a Metro, a fun, dramatic feature which,like such movies as Dil Chahta Hai, attempts to portray the new India.Metro presents several individual stories of mostly young people, andall these stories are intertwined into one movie, which clearly aims toshow the real side of the big city of Mumbai with all of itscomplexities, difficulties and troubled relationships. Each story ispresented efficiently, and Basu successfully captures the spirit of theurban city with his range of colourful characters, depicting theirmodern lifestyle, their trials and tribulations, their dreams,hardships and dilemmas. This depiction is significantly aided by therealistic dialogues and situations, the dark dim atmosphere, thebrilliant cinematography, and the narrative style, which is flavouredwith wonderful music, great contemporary humour and some breathtakinglyshot views of the big city.<br><br>The film is generally very well developed, though sadly the storiesthemselves are not particularly original. One story, for one, is anout-and-out copy of the classic gem The Apartment (1960). I was alsoquite shocked to see that the story of Konkona Sen Sharma, forinstance, is given an element similar to the one she had in Page 3(2005), with one scene being laughably copied from the latter. These,along with other flaws, reduce the movie&#x27;s quality. Yet, it is stilltotally watchable and enjoyable. The script gives the film a veryauthentic feel which, along with some wonderful performances, makes themovie easy to relate to. The film&#x27;s score is exceptional, and Pritamcreates one of the best soundtracks of the year. Songs like &#x22;In Dino&#x22;,&#x22;O Meri Jaan&#x22;, &#x22;Rishtey&#x22; and &#x22;Alvida&#x22; are awesome and none of them isactually lip-synced by the actors, which contributes to the film&#x27;srealism.<br><br>The acting is generally very good, and some of the performances areexcellent. Shilpa Shetty gets a good role and delivers her second-bestperformance after Phir Milenge. Both films require her to act ratherthan look sexy and she is so good at it (at both, but I&#x27;m referring tothe acting here). As Shikha, she is heartfelt and vulnerable andcarries her scenes with grace, displaying her character&#x27;s lonelinessand desperation. Shiny Ahuja is convincing as the aspiring actor whofalls for Shikha, and their relationship is beautifully portrayed. KayKay Menon is very good as Shikha&#x27;s infidel husband Ranjeet. KanganaRanaut is a little too loud at points but still effective as Ranjeet&#x27;slover Neha, and Sharman Joshi is fine as his ambitious employee who isalso in love with Neha. Dharmendra and Nafisa Ali are good in theirroles but sadly their story is the least developed and therefore quiteforgettable. <br><br>The finest performances in the movie, along with Shilpa Shetty&#x27;s one,are unsurprisingly those delivered by Irrfan Khan and Konkona SenSharma. Khan is amazingly likable and funny as Monty, and Sen Sharma ismore than astonishing as Shikha&#x27;s frustrated and heartbroken sisterShruti, whose personal problems really bring her down but she laterfinds the strength to move on. Her character is perhaps the mostcomplex in the movie, as she has to play the supportive sister andfriend, the wronged woman, and the woman who finally finds the one butis unsure. Her chemistry with Khan is wonderful with their scenes beingsome of the film&#x27;s best and wittiest, and yes, the one in which shebreaks down while trying to release her tensions by screaming at thetop of her lungs on the roof of a high building with Khan&#x27;s Monty,ultimately screaming her pain out, is really the film&#x27;s best actedscene.<br><br>Life in a Metro is not without its flaws, and the fact that some partsof it lack originality really get on the nerves. That said, it isinteresting and has many great moments of moving drama and funnycomedy. The film will be mainly remembered in years to come for itsrather different portrayal of the big city, its music, and some of itsperformances, all of which make it an altogether worthy picture.

Anurag Basu has mastered the art of copying Hollywood movies. He flickspopular Hollywood or world movies/themes and presents them in an Indiancontext. So in my opinion he is just a smart businessman and not anauteur as he is made out to be. The mainstream media in India is forsale and it&#x27;s possible to re-paint a cat and call it a Lion. And hencehe has a good reputation going for him. Unfortunately due to this hype,people are comparing Anurag Basu to his namesake - Anurag Kashyap - whoplays many leagues above him. <br><br>Other users who like his movies seem to comment based on theentertainment value (some of which should be credited to Mr.Basu as ittakes some smarts to be keep his output entertaining) or are totallyunaware of the original.<br><br>I would to distinguish *copying* from *inspiration*. For example, &#x22;DevD&#x22; by Anurag Kashyap is inspired by the Novel/movie &#x22;Devdas&#x22;, but it&#x27;sa thoroughly original take on it. However &#x22;Murder&#x22; by Basu is almost ascene by scene copy of &#x22;Unfailthful&#x22; - till the twist-in-the-endgimmick : pretty much like how so many b-movie makers take a hit movie,add a twist but they are pretty much unoriginal. At least most B-moviesdon&#x27;t pretend to be original.<br><br>Similarly, &#x22;Life in a metro&#x22; is inspired by the Hollywood trend ofparallel, nearly disjoint story lines (Magnolia, Playing by Heart(1998) among many others). Here most characters are one dimensional(but that&#x27;s just my opinion) and unconvincing in their actions. Thereis no catharsis that a movie of this nature would aim to inflict on theuser. In fact at times it seems to go the Madhur Bhandarkar populistway - where by showing something big (a metropolitan city) in anegative light, he tries to win the masses. Yup, so while writing thiscomment, I found a peer for Anurag Basu - Madhu Bhandarkar. Theyrepresent the so called new breed of Bollywood cinema who claim thatthey&#x27;ll re-invent the industry. All the will succeed is in re-inventingsome beaten story lines. (Okay, Madhur might be slightly more originalthan Basu but he is uninspiring and populist).

Inspired by Love Actually and that genre of storytelling, &quot;Life in aMetro&quot; is a sometimes insightful and sometimes predictable movie thatis well worth a watch for its performances. The narrative featuring KayKay and Shilpa Shetty is genuine with many insightful comments -ShilpaShetty&#39;s about the &quot;deafening silences in marriages&quot;, the interestingquestion of which between physical or emotional infidelity is worse.Kay Kay&#39;s character of being a loving father who is adored by hisdaughter was a further dose of realism. Nothing is black and white.Special mention to both Kay Kay and Shilpa Shetty (didn&#39;t realise shehad it in her) for really pulling it off. Shiny Ahuja is adequatewithout being special.<br><br>The other narratives were more predictable. Sharman Joshi and KanganaRaut - which is sort of a take off from &quot;The Apartment&quot; with JackLemmon and &quot;For Love or Money&quot; with Michael J Fox. So were Dharmendraand Nafisa Ali as the loving elder couple.<br><br>The track with Konkona Sen and Irfan is very entertaining. Irfan Khanis outstanding - an adjective one has started to use very often withhim. Konkona adequate. However the circumstances make for somegenuinely funny moments. Konkona as the 30 year old virgin dying to bewith her idea man and Irfan - as about the most unlikely of men shecould ever see herself with.<br><br>While I would not go so far as to herald this movie as either apath-breaking or life-altering Hindi movie (as some of the moredramatic leanings have suggested), I would say it is well worth awatch. It has a good music track - but could have done without thereally hairy guy singing, as we changed from one narrative to theother.
