Zubaan is a typical festival kind of film. The story, the casting, the production design, music, and entire look and feel of Zubaan is that of a festival film.
Zubaan has an interesting story but it’s connect with the audience isn’t that strong. Film fails to connect emotionally and the narrative is very confusing. Entire first half goes in establishing the plot but strangely nothing great happens in the second half either. It is very difficult to understand what Mozez Singh wants to say through Zubaan. It is flat paced and quite slow.
Zubaan works for the one and only Vicky Kaushal. The kindness, honesty and dedication he showed in his performance is very rarely seen in Bollywood films. His performance is magical.
Sarah Jane Dias has given her best shot but there is hardly anything for her in the film. Music of the film is noteworthy.
Overall Zubaan may not appeal to everyone. You may enjoy this film online or on satellite but definitely not worth taking efforts to go and watch it in a theater. Rating is solely for the attempt by Mozez Singh and the future powerhouse of talent – Vicky Kaushal.
