Review: ‘October’ would leave you speechless!


Cast: Varun Dhawan, Banita Sandhu, Gitanjali Rao, Sahil Vedoliya Director: Shoojit Sircar When we hear about October, many of us just think about autumn, a month or if I talk about this part of the world where we live then maybe it’s the onset of the festive season. These are just a few perceptions which we foster about October. But if I have to talk about Shoojit Sircar ‘s recent release cine flick then it October is miles above the common perceptions. To be more precise it’s more than those widely prevailing idiosyncrasies. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that October is a life journey in itself. Evokes emotions, makes you anxious and compels you to contemplate. Well, I won’t mind even saying that by the time this masterpiece of Shoojit reaches its culmination you are numb while waiting to have a rendezvous with reality. October triggers a battle of emotions within you with an entirely different story playing in your subconscious. Despite knowing that it’s just a cine chronicle you couldn’t resist drowning in those emotions. And by the time the end reaches you are simply speechless because October takes you to an altogether different zone. ‘October’ revolves around the lives of Danish Walia aka Dan (Varun Dhawan) and Shiuli (Banita Sandhu), both are hotel management trainees, who get connected with each other after a sudden turn of events.
