Movie Review

  by Bollywood Trade News Network | Posted Sep 20, 2012

An interesting subject tackled with the vigour of a novice; a story which makes a point but loses the plot. This in short sums up Aku Akbar’s GAURI – THE UNBORN, a movie which dwells on abortion, the feelings of the foetus, and its quest for revenge and thirst for a mother’s touch.

Akbar manages to drive home the anti-abortion message but beyond that fails to keep the interest alive. This has primarily to do with the fact that he moves from the core matter, to frills which do not go well with the mood of the film. If he was dealing with the demons of abortion, he has managed to send home the point within the first half hour, but after that the movie just lingers on; he is as confused as the unborn!

Abortion, in today’s day and age, is no big deal for most couples. But fact is it is a big issue. For the child who is being done away with, the womb, the place it feels most secure, becomes the tomb. For most who indulge in this act, they feel they are committing no crime, but fact is a life is being taken away. A fact, Anupam Kher, who plays the grandfather, tries to tell his son, Atul Kulkarni, who is not very keen on having his firstborn because he is yet getting settled in life, and his marriage to Ritupurna Sen Gupta is still young. But Kher tells his son that he (Atul) had no siblings because they were not that well off, but at the same time they were also very ‘careful’ with any unwanted pregnancies.

But Atul and Sengupta have decided that the child, who they had named GAURI, has to go. Seven years later, the ghost of GAURI returns to haunt them, with her spirit entering the body of their daughter Shivani (Rushita Pandya), when they are holidaying in their outstation home, the place GAURI was conceived.

To go or not: There a lot of loopholes in the script which makes no sense. Sad, because this is a terrific subject and Akbar has made a mess of it. Those who see GAURI, will certainly have a different take on abortion. Frankly, you can give this one a miss.
