Her unemployed husband’s debts and broken dreams of becoming a singer make her life boring.

When things turn dark, he finds a pot of joy: a secret source of income in his house from a leak in the creek.

Analysis

Anurag Kashyap’s OTT film “Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai” is the story of a middle-class housewife. Set in Mumbai in October 2016, the story hits all the right ‘notes’ in the middle section.

Anurag Kashyap depicts the life of an ordinary bank employee and his struggle to get rid of mounting debt. She paints a realistic picture of the people of Mumbai and their lives. There is beauty in everyday things.

Despite the growing gap between them, the couple still share warmth. Kashyap and the storyteller captured the drama beautifully.

Declaring demonetisation, the film takes an unexpected turn from the story of a middle-class man and woman to a “demonetisation” satire.

The announcement of demonetisation – we have decided that the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes currently in use will not be valid from midnight tonight – comes exactly 55 minutes after the film by PM Narendra Modi and the film focuses on the things we Want to see – crooked lines on the banks, middlemen chasing the crisis.

“This is an opportunity of a lifetime. Such incidents happen once in every 50 years,” a broker tells Saiyami Kher and asks him to deposit old banknotes in his bank and get a commission for it. Anurag Many such live scenes have been shown in the film near K.

However after this moment the film turns into a boring affair. After that it becomes ineffective.

It has many moments to praise it, but the sarcastic part of Demonetization lacks sharpness. Sometimes it gets messed up too.

The film’s performance is good and it is mainly Saiyami Kher’s show from start to finish. Best in the role of Sarita, she brings the character to life.

As a middle class Marathi woman, her body language and expressions are perfect. Roshan Mathew as Sushant Pillai has also played a good role.

The cinematography and production design are top notch. The story is largely set in a cramped apartment room and the camera delivers authenticity as well as a stuffy feel. The colors are hot. Music is fine.

“Choked” is quite different from Anurag Kashyap’s regular storytelling style. Known for his aggressive style, the director keeps the story central. This is his small work.

Overall, “choked” is a mixed bag. The first hour is excellent, but it feels disconnected after that, but it’s a good watch and a good satire on Nat Bane.

In short: money game
