Metro Movie Review
Metro is all about emotional, witty and a realistic depiction of urban relationships.The film depicts how the characters tend to forget their identities and also leave behind the ones who matter the most in order to fulfill their dreams and ambitions.


In ‘Metro’, Anurag does convincingly what other filmmakers in Bollywood have been clumsily trying lately. He tells a multi-layered story revolving around several characters. Each story is stacked with another in a meaningful, well thought way. The characters in each story are somehow connected to character(s) in another. And in this way the multi-narrative story moves on, with each subplot complementing the other, until the movie reaches a high point in the end.

Ranjeet (Kay Kay) and Shikha(Shilpa Shetty)  have been married for a long time and they have a young daughter too. Shikha is a homemaker and gets involved in the nitty gritty details of taking care of her home. Meanwhile her husband too is busy making money but at the same time
he is bored with life at home and the daily squabbles between him and his wife,this only drives him further away into the arms of Neha (Kangana) his employee. Neha is an ambitious girl and is in a hurry to climb the corporate ladder and this she feels can only be achieved by compromising on her values. Rahul (Sharman) too works for Ranjeet and wants to climb the ladder and he too is like a puppet who jumps to fulfill all his boss’s needs like giving him the keys to his empty flat to enjoy his rendezvous.

Rahul is also in love with Neha but has never confessed his feelings to her. Meanwhile Shikha too gets lonely with the constant absence of her husband and gets close to Akash (Shiney), a theater actor who is drawn to Shikha in spite of knowing that she is married. They bond well together and Shilpa finds a good friend in Akash which could lead to more. Shikha’s sister Shruti(Konkana Sen)  works at a radio station, she is pretty, young but still lonely. She keeps hoping to meet the man of her dreams, an RJ Wishy. But instead she ends up meeting Debu(Irrfan Khan)  that too through a matrimonial site. Shruti is not too happy about meeting Debu and makes this quite clear, but as time goes on she and Debu become good buddies and eventually more.

‘Metro’ is a gripping film but it gets heavy in the second half when the stories in it begin to look more and more commonplace. Thankfully, things don’t drag for long. The aforementioned stimuli sets in motion a chain of events that leads to the culmination of the stories.

‘Metro’ doesn’t have a single song picturized on any actor. It is the Metro band (Pritam, James and a third guy) that performs all the songs at regular intervals in the film.

Visually, ‘Metro’ has a very sleek look. Basu’s treatment of the story is very realistic and the dialogues sound straight out of life. Most importantly, not once does the emotional turmoil of characters in the film becomes soppy and superficially sentimental.

‘Metro’ is a beautifully crafted film. It definitely ought to be seen once.
