A couple of questions related to A WEDNESDAY (Hindi, 2008)

Posted: October 27, 2017 in Hindi films


In recent years the film A WEDNESDAY has been much talked about. The subject is contemporary, and overall the director manages to weave an engaging fare. While watching the film I found it quite riveting embellished by great performances by Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah.

However, when the film ended and I pondered over it, some thoughts/question came to my mind for which I didn’t find a convincing answer. If the character of Naseeruddin Shah is representative of the common man, how come he got hold of so much explosives – RDX – which he kept inside a ‘J & K’ marked bag in a police station (as shown in the initial portion of the film). The greyness of the character of Naseeruddin ought to have been hinted at – this I felt a weakness of the film – the lack of character development of its main character. Moreover, the hacker engaged to trace the calls of the mastermind concedes towards the end that Naseer is the best (and so by implication he is unable to trace his whereabouts), then how come Anupam Kher lands up in the same building which Naseer used for his operations as shown in the end?…
