Eklavya: flatters to deceive
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
February 19, 2007
It is the second biggie of 2007 that has not quite lived up to expectations. Vidhu Vinodh Chopra's reentry into direction has not been as successful as his recent production ventures. Eklavya just about passes muster when it comes to overall satisfaction of watching a multi-starrer suspense filled action flick.
Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Jimmy Shergill, Jackie Shroff, Boman Irani, Vidya Balan, Raima Sen; it doesn't get bigger (of course, Salaam-e-Ishq is an expection). All the actors have reasonable scope to perform in a movie that is centered on the Big B and having a length of close to just 100 minutes.

Most people who have seen the movie are of the opinion that the first half is good, the second half ordinary and the climax a big let down. It is too tame an ending for a murder mystery laced with lineage confusions and a good bit of envious rivalry between family members thrown in.

To sum things up, Eklavya is a good effort. VVC has managed to capture the true essence of Rajasthan with its Mahals, deserts and camels. The royal background of the story too has been well shot. Sanjay Dutt in an effective cameo delights, Amitabh looks different in a turban and a not so well kept beard, the first 20 minutes or so of the movie keep you riveted. All in all, a movie that won't disappoint you if you remember to leave your expectations at home. How well it will do at the box office? That is a tricky call to make. Maybe this time next week would be an appropriate time to make it.
