Listen... Amaya(2013):"It is about so-called forward thinking young generation who puts society before self and family."
It is sad that meaningful cinema is only appreciated when there are known faces or better say star power is associated with it.
A girl named Amaya (Swara) feels insecure about her widowed mother Leela’s (Deepti) relationship with a widower, Jayant (Farooque). How she eventually comes to accept them is remaining part of the story.
Film moves on a slow pace basically providing room for all possible arguments, discussions, debates among all the characters.
I must say that this movie challenges the natural instinct of not leaving behind our past especially our fond memories and also tragic moments.
Such small budget movies somehow get lost under the aggressive promotions of the big banner movies.
First time director Avinash Kumar Singh gets his screenplay to perfection in depicting the mentality of our so-called forward thinking youngsters.
My favorite on screen couple of Farooque Sheikh and Deepti Naval have outdone themselves after long time.
The pairing of Farooq and Deepti would remind you of their 'Chashme badoor' days.
Swara Bhaskar fits quite well in her character.
At the end of the day, we all have our lives to live.
When the children are ready to leave the nest, don't single parents have the right to love someone?
It's not always about sex.
LISTEN... AMAYA is for everyone who has the time to look beyond the needs of self.
Take a bow, Avinash Kumar Singh and Geeta Singh.
A 'now' story, lovingly told!
