An elderly couple wish their children to care for them in their old age. But their children see and treat them as a burden, and they must struggle to regain their worth and dignity to themselves and others.
Ram Gopal Varma. A Prolific, Marverick, Celebrated Storyteller, who has delivered brilliant films such as 'Company', 'Satya', 'Rangeela', 'Bhoot', 'Rakht Charitra 1', to name a few. However, his work lately, hasn't been up-to the mark.
RGV, in my opinion, is amongst the most talented storytellers around, however, his recent films have failed to gain much attention. And unfortunately, 'Department' too fails to leave a lasting impact. Its strictly an average fare, that could've been so much more!
'Department' Synopsis: Two cops joins hands to free the city of Mumbai from underworld.
'Department' has a winning first-hour, but a losing second. The Writing Material falls in the latter hour & doesn't leave an impact. Nilesh Girkar's Screenplay is interesting in the first-hour, but falls later on. RGV's has attempted "Rouge Filmmaking" with 'Department' & he seems to know what he's doing. Cinematography is abstract. Editing is fair.
Performance-Wise: Amitabh Bachchan hams. His performance stands out like a sore thumb. Sanjay Dutt is as usual. Rana Daggupati does very well, his performance definitely deserves praise. Vijay Raaz & Abhimanyu Singh are pretty menacing, while Anjana Sukhani is very sincere. Deepak Tijori is under-utilized.
On the whole, 'Department' could've been so much more!
