Traffic SignalFilm: TRAFFIC SIGNAL
Starring: Kunal Khemu, Neetu Chandra, Konkana Sen, Ranvir Sheorey
Director : Madhur Bhandarkar

Traffic Signal was much hyped in the media and long awaited after the success of Page 3 and Corporate by the same director. But though the film is full of interesting cameos, a concrete and strong storyline is definitely lacking. However, despite this fact, the film is worth a watch for the sheer realism it tries to bring to screen, despite having a commercial star cast.

Kunal Khemu plays an orphan Silsila, who was born on the streets and is now the manager of all the activities that go on there. He loves his co workers like his own family. So  you have the handicapped kids, the rag picker tsunami, the prostitute (Konkana), the junkie (Ranvir), the lepers, beggars, street kids, flower vendors , eunuchs and the  supposedly insane man perennially in his underwear. All of these thrive at the traffic signal which is just  a stop for the flashy vehicles but a place of livlihood for the multitudes who thrive on it and come to work there daily !

In the midst of all this is the local mafiosi, the Haji (Sudhir Mishra) for whom anyone would even lay down his life.  How this man exploits the innocence of the beggars and Silsila in particular makes up the last parts of the film. The powerful nexus between the beggars, mafiosi, builders  and corrupt officials is what  the film attempts to bring out.

Though the cameos are wonderful, the lack of a strong story takes away from the overall impact of the film. However full marks to Bhandarkar for the realist touch to his characters including costumes, casting, make up and even the choreography in the item number which is more realistic than typical Bollywood numbers, thanks to choreographer Umesh Jadhav. Dialogues by Bhandarkar and Sachin Yardi deserve a special mention too.
A film worth watching at least once.
