Margarita with a Straw, A worth Watch Movie
For some time, I realized that my blog is becoming a muddle. I had current affairs, travel, movie review, drama review and what not on this single blog. Trying to learn if I can have dedicated areas in this blog itself rather than creating multiple blogs. Hence the pause.
I had to let go of this pause after watching ‘Margarita with a Straw’. I will keep this post very crisp and short so that I don’t give out too much about the movie.
For one, it is a little slow movie and it just lasts for 120 minutes or so. It brings out beautifully, the agony of a agile but caged soul in a cerebral palsy affected body. The aspirations, the dreams and the never say die spirit of such a person has been depicted in the movie. The caged soul of he actress touches a cord in your soul too. It makes you feel the emotions of that soul.
It brings to the fore topics that are taboo to discuss for normal people, from the perspective of a caged soul. The depiction is explicate but there is no vulgarity. As for acting, all of them have acted par excellence.
This is one movie we all must watch and see how well the director has brought on screen the unnoticed facets of a cerebral palsy affected (for that matter any person challenged with some kind) very sensitivity and in a soft manner.
Go and watch this journey of self discovery and fulfillment of this girl called ‘Laila’, beautifully played by Kalki Koechlin. Delightful if you watch it without being judgmental about aspects brought out in the movie.
