This is one of the most stylish films in Bollywood's recent history. Yes world, we are now finally a part of the MTV generation, with our piercings and sexy dancing, fast cars and lots of flesh. Road is a slick film, to say the least. The visual style is reminiscent of Wong Kar Wai's works, lending the film a racy mood. And the best part is, these are characters to whom we can relate. As beautiful as Antara Mali is, she does not come across as one of the many light-eyed, light-hair, candy floss castle types that have become icons of Indian romantic cinema.
The initial premise is simple - guy loves girl, girl loves guy, dad hates guy, they elope. But we never see Daddy dear, and there is none of that weepy confrontation between father and daughter that indian films love so much. Lakshmi is a spunky girl. Her words are witty, and she mocks Arvind (Vivek Oberoi) when he says he wants to marry her. Yet they elope and en route from Delhi to Rajasthan, they encounter an unusual hitchhiker.
I won't say more about the plot, because there are some incredibly suspenseful scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat. The music works well as a vehicle for the plot, building the mood instead of coming across as superfluous moments of pretty scenery. There are some delightfully funny moments, that arise naturally from successful 3-dimensional characters. All in all, a great film that should inspire the new generation of Indian filmmakers that there are other genres to be explored. Let's face it, the era of family dramas is coming to an end.
