Movie Review: Main Aur Charles

MAC took me right back to the 80s, when hippies ruled the roost in Goa. Charas-ganja was easily available, and half naked bikers popped into view on their motorbikes.

I remember the drama behind Charles' arrest in Porvorim. Vividly.

MAC brings all that back with an amazing depiction of life in the 80s. Randeep Hooda is mesmerizing as Charles, and true to the character he plays, you fall in love with him, all his evil and merciless humor notwithstanding! Richa Chaddha is fantastic in a small but memorable role, as is Mandana Karimi (currently living it the Big Boss house).

Not your typical Hindi movie though - almost gives you a feel of a docu. But the end is wonderfully presented, and a fitting end to the intense story telling.
