UnIndian is a beautiful blend of a commercial and an Indie film. The film which is made is western style but is Indian at heart. Western style because of the entire look and feel of the film is that of the films from the west. Indian at heart because it has too many Indian characters and also the story can be easily related by the Indians all over the world.
Anupam Sharma presents this very sweet, simple and an appealing story. A widow whose parents are behind her to get married. Living in Australia they do not like firangs and no prizes for guessing, that their daughter ends up falling in love with one. The entire screenplay of UnIndian is very Indian. It somewhere reflects the lifestyle of Indians who are situated all over the world. How the people form different generations there think, how Indian roots never leave Indians irrespective whichever part of the world they live in. Every Indian will find themselves in the family scenes which include Tannishtha Chatterjee, Supriya Pathak and Akash Khurrana.
It is a delight to watch Brett Lee on big screen. Surprisingly he has gone a great job as an actor. His character may be simple without much variations in it but he is just adorable. All his female fans are in for a treat. Tannishta Chatterjee plays this strong character of a single mother and she has nailed it. Her performance looks very real. Supriya Pathak and Akash Khurrana support well in their highly interesting characters especially Supriya Pathak. The rest of the supporting cast fits the bill very well. Its a pleasure to see the limited presence of Gulshan Grover as a bad man.
Film is in Hinglish and is thoroughly enjoyable. Just a scene or two in second half where you loose the interest. Salim-Sulaiman’s compositions are a treat to your ears. Their compositions leaves you surprisingly shocked. Overall UnIndian makes for a decent watch. If nothing else then watch this one for Brett Lees acting skills.
