MAYANK SHEKHAR

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Brunch - - BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS -

Dev Bene­gal’s adap­ta­tion of Upa­manyu Chatterjee’s novel, deals with the gap be­tween In­dia and Bharat, that still re­mains. Also, the way I imag­ined Au­gustya – a lanky, dope­head with­out a care in the world – is not who I saw in the movie (played by a buffed-up Rahul Bose). He could be played bet­ter.

Ram Gopal Varma’s cult film is per­fect – the plot, the de­pic­tion of the Bom­bay un­der­world, the depth of each char­ac­ter, the per­for­mances. You em­pathise with ev­ery­one, from the po­lice com­mis­sioner (Paresh Rawal), to Satya (JD Chakravarthy) and Bhiku Mha­tre (Manoj Ba­j­payee).
