How to jump back to your roots and hold on to it dearly, in Raman Raghav 2.0.
The writer and director Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0 is Anurag breathing, sighing heavily after a while. His patience is tested in the Fritz Lang’s M way. And by his, I mean both the filmmaker and his protagonist. There is a raw connection transmissioned through pure passion, almost obsession, towards anything. Anurag adapts his love towards Fritz Lang in this film and treats his antagonist as a protagonist, giving him a surprisingly satisfying though hair-pulling arc of perseverance. I also found a lot of Badlapur present in it in that sense, but lighter, of course. And that’s saying a lot.
