Genre-defying director Alfonso Cuarón creates delicate, subtle, and stunning imagery in ‘Roma’. With a poetic script and his superb cast, he breaks your heart, then tends to it, gets you down to the bottom but ultimately uplifts you. This is 2018’s best and finest movie. This is what cinema—and life—is all about: a beautiful experience.
How do you capture the zest and madness of an actor who lived life on his terms, even if those terms meant hellish conditions for those around him? How do you get the mania onscreen that Marathi stage’s first (and perhaps only) superstar evoked amongst his audience? Director Abhijeet Deshpande and actor Subodh Bhave do a stupendous job in doing all of this and more. In a movie whose title means listing its subject at the end of the credits, it’s a first amongst Indian actors’ biopics.
