Is Being Cyrus this good?

‘Another good Saif movie..’ the phrase sounds familiar. Hum Tum and Salaam Namaste have really got Saif on the right track. He is improving and nearing perfection with every movie. I liked his work in both. I guess the turning point of Saif's career was Ek Haseena Thi. He was simply brilliant in the movie.

Being Cyrus seems to be a completely different type of cinema. I haven’t seen any trailer of the movie. I came to know about the movie from an article in Delhi Times (Boman's interview). And next Friday it was 'Being Cyrus' all around.

Starting Mr. Hirani (Munna Bhai MBBS), most of the debutant directors have been breaking grounds. The success can be attributed to parameters like freshness, the 'out-of-the-blue' approach etc.

Clearly in a market when demand changes supply has to change. This is what we see in today’s successful movies. The Saas Bahu age is over. Now it takes a bold bunch of people who are willing to risk entering an arena so far unexplored. And when so much is at risk, seldom is there a scope for a mistake. Everything is taken care of in such a nice way that the final product is bound to be good.

For instance: Kalyug, Black, Mr. and Mrs. Iyer etc stepped into a different world altogether (so far as Bollywood is concerned.) and came out winners all the way. This does not require big budgets and fancy sets etc. All it takes is creativity and boldness.

Kudos to the crew of Being Cyrus. Cant wait to see the movie!
