Good News- Radhika is pregnant.
Bad News- The baby is not her husband’s.
Theme of the Film- If she tell her husband this ugly truth, how will he react?
Director Ram Madhvani is India’s most respected advertising film maker and won Bronze Lion at the 2000 Cannes Advertising Festival to his numerous awards. This is his debut film which brings totally new conceptualization of one liner theme. The film charges up the involving audience with emotions and laughter at the same time and for that all credit goes to brilliant actor Boman Irani. Shot in a common Mumbai apartment with just three characters, ‘Let’s talk’ is one of the finest original experimental Indian films I’ve seen after a long time. The action of the film is almost psychological and occurs inside the brain of wife who’s under dilemma. She imagines her husband’s possible reactions to her predicament.
How can a single actor play various moods of denial, anger, irrationality and forgiveness to the scene where he has to react to his honey’s confession of infidelity? Well, Boman you are genius actor. Many of us think that ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ was debut film of this talented actor but it’s revealing for me to know that it’s sixth film of Boman. But we can say that it’s through ‘Let’s Talk’ Boman got major role to emerge as original actor. His talent got noticed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra (since Director Ram Madhvani assisted him in ‘Mission Kashmir’) and impressed by Boman’s brilliant act of repressive anger in this film Vidhu offered him memorable role of his lifetime- Dr Asthane in ‘Munnabhai MBBS’. “Boman’s performance was one of the most inspiring I have seen in a long time. It was a huge learning experience,” said Aamir Khan after watching Boman’s act in this film. The film also has fine restrained debut performance of Maia Katrak who’s in creative advertising field for years.
The film is must watch if you want to explore more of Boman Irani.
I’m eagerly awaiting to see his act of Prof. Cherian in Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘3 Idiots’.
