CAST & CREW
Plot: Fireflies come out in the dark, just to glow, and lighten the darkness. They live as long as they can glow. This movie follows the life of Shiv and Rana, two estranged brothers. One of them is a rich, well-earning banker, the other a law school dropout, living one day at a time. Both of them try to move on, but haunted by old memories, with dark past. The memories of that one tragic incident must be resolved, to bring the brothers together again. Will it be resolved? Will their bond become strong enough to break the clutches of the past and break out?
Analysis: This is one of those movies where the direction and the cinematography, the lighting, the production design everything matches up to give you a perfect visual treat which is very pleasing to eyes. The music is another huge plus point; it is not intrusive to the movie and definitely doesn’t disturb the pace of the movie, but it is there, subtly, engaging you, drawing you in. The movie moves in and sets a pace; the storyline is intriguing, and you keep wondering about the strained relation between the brothers.
Star Performance: Rahul Khanna pulls off the role of Shiv effortlessly; the acting is neat and believable but his counterpart Arjun Mathur is the one who steals the show with perfect acting. Shivani Ghai and Monica Dogra play the roles of the supporting actors nicely.
1. A beautiful screenplay that draws you in right from the start.
2. A story that keeps you guessing till the end and ends with a perfect climax.
What Is Not there? The fact that something is holding the brothers back is a well know fact and was made clear in the trailers and the promotional campaigns, yet the very fact was hidden until the very end of the movie, which didn’t make sense and it seemed as if the movie was going nowhere.
Verdict: A fast paced movie, which will keep you guessing till the very end. Anybody who enjoys a slow reveal in movies is bound to enjoy this movie.
