Salaam-E-Ishq in Traffic Signal

Watched Traffic Signal. A great movie. I recommend this movie to everyone who appreciates the art of making movies in difficult situation, who appreciates the difficulties that the director and his cast goes through in order to portray reality, who appreciates films with raw emotion and fallacies of modern day living...

It is a very similar narration like Madhur's first movie PAGE 3. PAGE 3 was a narration about the creamy layer of the society and Traffic Signal was a narration about the bottom layer of the society. It is collection of real life nuances that is brought out beautifully on the screen.

One of the nuances was about Rani falling in love with Silsila. It reminded me of what Nikhil Advani lacked in Salaam-E-Ishq. He should see this movie and understand how to salaam ishq, how to portray love and its tight emotions, its expectations, its manifestations.

The small things like Rani (played by Neetu Chandra) gifting kediyu (Gujarati shirt) to her boy silsila (played by Kunal Khemu) and Silsila wearing it the next day without really thinking if the kediyu would look good on him was an instance of Salaam-E-Ishq.

Overall an excellent movie for someone who does not go to movie halls only to see glamour.

Oh, one more thing.... dialogues are awesome... very nicely written and thought.
