Does it hold up? I never cared for this question. It barely matters whether a film holds up ages later or not. It just has to hold up for its claimed runtime. You should only focus on this question for the writer and director Sujoy Ghosh’s Jhankaar Beats puts a spin on the question. The film was ahead of its time to a degree that we see the same grammar present in the current wave of Hindi Cinema that fuels Indie drama, especially in the comic genre. But the real issue is the star cast. Unlike these current films that work with such ease due to a strong cast, the film fumbles disappointingly due to weak performances. I could understand their skepticism towards the authenticity of the product especially how its reception would enfold. But that still isn’t an excuse to how dull and dry each scene looks on screen.
