It is true that the parents do not want their children to see that lack, suffer the misery they themselves bear, but it is not good for the children to bear the burden of their happiness and sorrows and ambitions.

Director Sudhir Mishra's film Serious Man brings these issues to the fore.

The interiors of this story are beautiful. The writer-director has created an exit strategy for Ayyan and Adi.

But consider that this is not the end of the fight of the fighters for their rights because the status has no connection to the IQ and the talent also has no color (black or blonde).

Some of the film's dialogues are quite effective. At the same time, some scenes between Nawazuddin and Akshat touch the heart.

The film starts off with satire and then becomes poignant and then poignant.

The film based on the book slows down considerably in many parts. The main characters have been given a lot of time to set up, which makes it a bit bored and impacts the storyline.

Films on social bias and discrimination have been made for years, but 'Serial Men' makes its characters different.

As a father, Nawazuddin Siddiqui appears to be the best, while the strong side of the film has emerged as Akshat Das in the role of his son.

He walks shoulder to shoulder with Nawazuddin in every scene.

Nasser is perfect in his character.

But, the director has given very little space to a good actress like Shweta Basu Prasad.

Apart from caste discrimination, 'Serious Men' made under the direction of Sudhir Mishra touches on topics like inequality, lack, corruption, politics. Director Sudhir Mishra has tried to put it in an easy way.

The message of Netflix Serious Men is very important for making a serious and social taunt, but it is served that way easily.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the best actors working in the Hindi film industry. He's done so many interesting films and Serious Men is no different.

Serious Men follows Ayyan Mani, an underprivileged man who decides to make his son a genius. However, he'll soon find out that his method is slowly destroying his son.

Serious Men is a film that may linger on people's minds for some time. It's a film that a lot of people can relate to. Adapted from the novel by Manu Joseph, Serious Men explores the desperation and want to have a better life and how caste and class plays a factor into your societal status. A great aspect is the writing. The characters interact in a natural way and its commentary on society doesn't come across as preachy. Having four writers on a film can be scary as there may be a clash of ideas but Abhijeet Khuman, Bhavesh Mandalia, Nikhil Nair and Niren Bhatt all collaborated really well with each other and made a script that was thought-provoking and engaging. There are parts of the story which I did question because it seemed a tad unbelievable but otherwise I didn't have much of a problem with it. The cinematography is handled really well and Sudhir Mishra's direction was well done.

The performances really shine in this film. Nawazuddin Siddiqui once again does a great job here. Ayyan is a very intriguing character that has many layers to him and Siddiqui plays him to a tee. Nassar, as the intelligent but arrogant Dr. Arvind Acharya, plays his character well. Indira Tiwari also does a good job playing Siddiqui's wife. I've always been sceptical about child performances but Aakshath Das was truly great. He conveyed the smart and confused nature of Adi well and I hope to see more of him in the future.

Serious Men is definitely one of the better Hindi films I've seen this year. It has a fascinating premise and an interesting take on society that is sure to make you think.

Serious men is based on the book of same name and tells the story of a over-enthusiastic office assistant, who would go the extra mile to get the respect he deserves along with is son. The movie on one side focuses on a High IQ child prodigy, who seems to blessed with natural intelligence and inquest while the other side parallels the games played by individuals from all the strata of society to get what they want. The whole premise tends to reach a boiling point when the core sub-plot unfolds sometime in the middle.

Gradually though, despite the humour in the situations portrayed, especially in the satirical take on corruption that knows no social barriers, and despite the entertaining audacity of abundant strategies, the film reveals its hollow centre, only to pick itself up in the last 20 minutes with a liberal dose of practicality.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is at is usual best in his portrayal of a Ayyan Mani. Indira Tiwari and little Aakshath Das do their parts well. Nassar as Dr. Acharya a shrewd, no nonsense arrogant director of a government-run scientific research institute excels the most. Director Sudhir Mishra tries to put in too many punches but only a handful land on where it is intended. Adapted screenplay may not have done enough justice to a good story. Cinematography, casting, music, costumes and production design were decent. Make up was a little over done.

Overall, not a perfect movie but Serious men is funny and poignant in equal parts, it's a mix of complexities that exist around us and the state of affairs that we live in and ignore. Watch it for Nawaz who yet again proves that he has the ability to play wide range of characters convincingly. It is high time that parents in India stop using their children as insurance policy for their future.

Serious men is about a father trying to give his son a great life but by taking the shortcut. What's good: 1. The story is good. 2. The performances are great especially Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the child artist Akshat Das. 3. The film criticizes a lot of things that happen in society in a funny way. What's bad: 1. The ending is predictable. 2. Not a family film. Overall, Nawazuddin Siddiqui fans and those who want to see something different will love it.

The story weave in all aspects of society like caste discrimination, education institution policies, political involvement and feelings of a father who want to fight against set hierarchy defined by systems for primitive minds.

With the sprinkle of comedy and strong acting by cast has kept this script alive and engaging.

Amazing work by Sudhir mishran, it is must watch movie for parents to avoid pressure on their kids due to existing spoiled and inherited system of ruling and preservance of good with our innerself.

Everything is best in this movie.

The flim is good but the some things in movies is missing which were expected which were fullfilled. I think there should not be adult scenes in movie. It's doesnot suits the movie. If it was not there then movie was to be good. It's way of expressing message was heartfelt. Nawaz sir acting was as usual.

glitterstarwipeout 31 October 2020

The concept is good, but they didn't do justice to the storyline. This isn't the type of movie that keeps you glued to the screen and entertained throughout. If you watch the first 30 minutes and the last 30 minutes, you'll understand the whole movie. The remaining is just depressing to watch and painfully slow. No doubt that the actors did their roles well, but the storyline is not captivating. They could've executed it better.
