Director: Hansal Mehta
Actors: Rajkummar Rao, Manoj Bajpayee
Rating: 3 / 5
Aligarh picks a take on all known issues and problems in the society regarding homosexuality. The best part is the decency of the story-line in which it has been structured. It has been edited well and flows respectfully. It could’ve been a wonder if the gripping nature would’ve been maintained. But often it digresses from the plot and disconnects the viewer.
Wonderfully directed by Hansal Mehta, he takes his sweet time in detailing irrelevant things. Many times it makes sense but only if editing is proper. Nevertheless, the effort is fantastic in getting the whole plot together.
Rajkummar Rao is just not stopping to improve himself with every movie. He has the sense of maintaining the required body language all through. Manoj Bajpayee underplayed a lot too much but delivered a good performance.
Overall, a decent and a respectful take on homosexuality but could’ve been a wonder if gripping nature would’ve been maintained.
