Wake up Sid !!

Yesterday I saw the latest movie ‘Wake Up Sid’ and I loved the character ‘Aisha Banerjee’ brilliantly played by Konkona Sen Sharma. It’s an impressive character and I can easily relate to the free spirited Aisha. Her innate sense of self confidence coupled with a subtle softness is mind blowing. I love that character, because I saw myself in Aisha somewhere.

She arrives in a new city, full of ambitions but all alone, that too without a job. She then gets a job as an assistant to the editor of a magazine. However, the way she faces her interviews and then the way she subtly persuades her boss (played by Rahul Khanna) to read and comment on her own articles is nice; her perseverance never dies out. Aisha as a character has lots of positive energy and hope in her. She does the complete makeover of a dirty rat-hole flat beautifully!

But what I loved the most is her sense of independence when she roams about the entire city all by herself, on the third day of her arrival!

Wake up Sid is an amazing movie, not just because it’s made under a big banner or it has a good star cast, but it actually gives a lesson to the viewers. Why do we confine ourselves inside the self made walls? Sid, the delinquent son of a millionaire industrialist, takes up a career in photography and Aisha takes up writing i.e. both take up their hobbies as professions rather then the fields of their professional studies. That is exactly what I always advocate- we should go where our heart lies. Sid and Aisha finally get their rewards as their works are published in ‘Mumbai Beat’, the magazine they work for.
