Demands more patience than usual mainstream Hindi fare but rewards the viewer with fine perfs and a story that engages emotionally over the three-hour span.
At three and a half hours, J.P. Dutta's lugubrious period melodrama Umrao Jaan defeated me. It feels endless.
The extremely slow pace is severely sleep-inducing, the most dramatic of scenes come across as rather inert and the long takes don't hold the audience interest.
This story has all the hallmarks of a grand tragedy, but under J.P. Dutta's leaden direction, Umrao Jaan never registers a pulse.
With sincere apologies to all my flixster friends who are huge Bollywood fans . . .
Walter, I say, with great guilt, that I could not bear another syllable of this one. Not another frame, not another cut, not another jot, not another iota.
In fairness to me, I have been on an all-Bollywood, all-the-time crusade recently, so you'll see how highly, if you check my history of reviews, I've rated some BW product.
Seriously, Walter, I was climbing the walls a few minutes into this one.
I'm sure, because I'm a long-time flixster supporter to the bitter end, upholding the flixsterian democratic ideal that we are all entitled to our own opinions, no matter how narrow and inflexible they may be, that this one will most assuredly get big star ratings from other flixsters -- just not from me.
It's another one, Walter, for our list.
Please feel free to label me old, insensitive, and unbending, if you will, but I tried. I truly gave it the "old college" try. Just as with tripe like so-so Blue, or actually decent White -- the best one in a threesome of not-often-under-gushed-about fodder --, and seriously-most-disappointing and wholly vacuous color-trio buddy Red.
I really, really, really tried, Walter. But, as you know even way up there in the far East-North, time is precious, and life is short.
I mean it: long live GOOD Bollywood.
An amazing movie! Loved it! Brought tears to my eyes.
