Blind movie review of Newton
A blind perspective:
Newton is a Hindi film directed by Amit V Masurkar, produced by Manish Mundra under Drishyam Films, and music is given by Naren Chandavarkar & Benedict Taylor.
The film stars Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil and Raghubir Yadav.
The film has good acting performances, especially Rajkummar and Raghubir have done a fantastic job. Pankaj and Anjali also have done justice to their roles.
The story is about Newton Kumar, a trainee government clerk, who is sent on election duty in the conflict-ridden jungles of Chhattisgarh.
As the area is under the control of the naxals, Netwon Kumar tries his best to organise a fair voting process in the region.
The story is quite interesting and has little bit of comedy as well. Raghubir’s dialogues are well-written and funny and can make the audience laugh a lot.
First half of the movie is very nice and interesting but the second half is little bit boring.
Visually impaired audience can understand the film but sighted assistance is needed for some scenes with no dialogues and only background music.
The dialogues of the film are average and very simple and easy to understand for everyone.
There is only song in the movie which is very slow but the lyrics are good. Background music is also soft and good.
We get a nice message from the film that is to do our job sincerely and be loyal to our job. If anyone stops you to do your job or distract your mind, don’t listen to them and finish your job accurately on time.
Verdict - Overall, Newton is a nice movie to watch as it presents a fresh and different subject for the first time in Bollywood.
Rating - 4/5.
A sighted perspective:
Newton is a simple story of a newly-joined government clerk Newton Kumar, who aims to give his 100% at his job.
The film’s story shows an overview of how the voting processes are carried out in conflict-ridden areas in the country.
The film highlights the problems that the presiding officer, task force leader and the tribal people go through in real life when it comes to the ‘right to vote’ in elections.
It shows how Newton takes his job very seriously and overcomes the challenges thrown by the corrupt security officials to conduct free and fair voting.
Newton is Rajkummar Rao’s one of the best performances till date. Rajkummar is firm and powerful as Newton, who believes that rules are meant not to be broken, but to be followed and honesty is the best policy.
This black comedy film is a must watch for its great story with a genuine message, well-written dialogues and wonderful work by the whole cast. I think we need more movies like Newton as they are very rare in Hindi film industry.
