Sidlingu – **

Posted: February 3, 2012 in 2011, Dramedy, India

The hotel in Mysore was located in front of a cinema, so I decided to go watch the movie that was on that night: Sidlingu. (for 1 usd, balcony seat). Didn’t quite understand it all as it was in the local language and not subtitled, but I enjoyed watching it regardless. Which means quite something.

The story is about a guy who dreams of owning a car. The first part shows his childhood and the rest shows him as an adult. Again, I really didn’t understand all of it, but that made the movie more intriguing. What I really liked was the creativeness of the director. there were a lot of cool shots in that movie. The editing was really good. From what I saw the actors were excellent at what they were doing. Only the comical side characters were over-acting. There was animation introduced as well. And the songs were very entertaining. Apart from the ballads, which always suck, whether you’re watching an Indian or an American movie.

Would love to see it again with subtitles, but it’s not even on imdb and it’s not even shown in the rest of India, so I’m sure this one will just be a very special unique movie which I’ll never quite understand.

Here’s a clip from the movie:

The trailer is pretty boring, although the last second hints at the real style of the movie:
