Bollywood is certainly coming of age now because there are directors who are willing to take risks and come up with certainly story line that could not only entertain but also stun you from nowhere and if you are interested in watching hard hitting movies that can shock and surprise you then Not A Love Story should be on your movie charts. Directed by none other than Ramgopal Verma the movie revolves around the gruesome murder which experts claim is taken directly from Neeraj Grover case. However, RGV completely denies the fact and says that it is an imaginary story made for the audience. The movie stars Mahie Gill, Deepak Dobriyal and Ajay Gehli in the lead roles.
The story takes us back in time to 2008 where Anusha Chawla (Mahie Gill) is an aspiring actress looking for a break in the Bollywood industry when she meets Ashish Bhatnagar (Ajay Gehli) who provides her the helping hand and supports her in all her efforts. However, one fine morning Anusha’s boyfriend Robin (Deepak Dobriyal) turns up at the apartment and finds her girlfriend having sweet time with another man. What happens next is something that you should watch out in the movie hall for yourself.
On performance level, all the actors have given splendid performance to make sure that movie looks as realistic as possible and they do it with all their might. Mahie Gill has given her career best performance in this movie and she will definitely get attention of some of the top directors who are looking for actresses that can act so beautifully and naturally. Deepak Dobriyal as Mahie’s boyfriend in the movie also gets the attention of the audience and so does Ajay Gehli. In some way, it is the strong script of the film that allows them to explore their hidden acting talent.
RGV movies are technically very sound and innovative and he makes sure that this time he makes no mistake. The camera work is extremely good and captures scenes in natural light rather than using artificial lights that would have messed up the essence of the movie. The screenplay by Rohit Banawlikar always keeps you on the edge of your seat for what happens next. Although, the movie looks like a slasher movie but there are only few scenes when bloody shots are been taken. So, if you are not happy seeing blood all the time you don’t have to worry much because the other half is captivating investigation that follows.
Some of the scenes in the movie are extremely good and what makes them better is the background score by Sandeep Chowta. RGV and Sandeep Chowta have already combined together earlier to give us some electrifying background score in Satya. RGV is extremely good at providing us dark movies that showcase the darker side of human nature which normally stays hidden. If you are passionate about watching something different from regular Bollywood flicks then Not A Love Story should definitely impress you out of the blue.
