Expectations

Along with the regular dosage of our commercial entertainers and some hard-hitting realistic films, there are few films which have been part of various film festivals. Most of these films are small films with strong content attached to it.

With lack of star power attached to it, their only fame points are the laurels they carry due to their participation in various film festivals. Sometimes these laurels help them to create the proper marketing, but there are times when they go totally unnoticed due to various reasons, especially due to delay of its release.

'M Cream' is one such film which, despite of being part of various film festivals took time to get its theatrical release. Thus, the expectation level is very low and will have to depend only on the content and the reviews of the film.

Story

'M Cream' is a story of four youngsters, Figs (Imaad Shah), Jay (Ira Dybey), Maggie (Aurita Ghosh) and Niz (Raaghav Chanana). One day they decide to go for a long road trip in the mysterious mountains, in search of M Cream, a mythical form of hash. The journey which begins on a fun note gets diverted at many junctions which deals with several rural and urban issues.

The 'Glitz' Factor

The story on papers, looks good and has lots of layers attached to it. Few scenes between Ira and Imaad are enriching. Also, the scenes involving the arguments related to revolutions are worth a watch.

The cinematography is great and all the locations of the Himalayas were breath-taking.Imaad Shah reminds you of young Naseeruddin Shah. Ira Dubey looks sweet. Aurita Ghosh and Raaghav Chanana looks great and are fine in their respective parts.

The 'Non-Glitz' Factor

The lethargic execution and bland story telling ruins the fun. The movie moves on a snail pace with many scenes which fails to connect with each other. All the weird hallucinating scenes followed by rave party, random kisses, bookish dialogues and few more, fails to connect with the mood of the film.

Along with the slow treatment, the screenplay too is lethargic. The abrupt highly pseudo scenes fail to go with the flow of the film. The English dialogues are too dramatic and preachy at times. The finale part is more confusing as the film-makers failed to do proper justice to the screenplay of the film. The music is unimpressive and fails to gel with the flow of the film.

Director Agneya Singh comes up with a unique film but, fails to do justice to it. All the scenes have been stretched to the fullest. Barry John and Tom Alter were wasted.

Final 'Glitz'

'M Cream' is one of those films which works only during the film festivals. The overdose of pseudoism and super slow narration manages to give you bland hallucinations throughout the film.

Rating: 1.50 / 5.0
