If considering Salaam Venky movie review Kajol has once again proved that it is her world when it comes to movies, she nailed it with versatility.
For a mother who knows her child is going to die, she has the toughest job. Her expressions will leave you in tears.
Vishal Jethwa has given an incredible performance in the film, probably one of his best. He brings in multi-layered emotions and wit with so much life.
Vishal’s acting is so pure that will make everyone cry and smile at the same time. Watch out for the scene where he is crying out for his mom helplessly because she won't speak to him.
In the first half of the film, Several flashbacks are thrown in where we get a glimpse of Venky's childhood, his troubled relationship with his estranged father, his list of wishes, and his bond with her peers. Though the film moves at a slow pace, it is worth the time.
The second half focuses on Kajol's Sujata finally accepting her son's will to die. She runs pillar-to-post to allow her son to get euthanized so that he could donate his organs.
Salaam Venky is an emotional yet sensitive movie, it's not a masterpiece and doesn't move you to the extent that you are left with tears in your eyes. However, it’s a truly inspiring story of how everybody has the right to live and even the right to die.
In simple words, the movie just doesn't connect or create an impact that stays with audiences for a long.
