It had a good storyline and the narration was fast-paced. There were hardly any scenes that dragged. Each character was given almost equal footage. Shiney Ahuja, KK Menon, Konkona Sen & Irfan Khan are proven good actors, but Shilpa Shetty proved to be a surprise package in this movie. From her subdued sense of dressing (I hate her loud dress-sense in other movies!) to her emoting with eyes .. all proved that this lady can act too. I have never been impressed with her acting in the past .. althogh I have heard she had done a good job in 'Phir Milenge', but I never got to watch the movie.
Shiney Ahuja is great as usual .. besides the fact that I am a great fan of his, it really is good to see that the guy is delivering good performances one after the other. Sherman Joshi and Kangana Ranaut add a breath of fresh air to the movie .. though Kangana's suicidal antics in one movie after the other are getting boring now .. but each one has a different mode though - from slashing wrists in 'Woh Lamhe' to jumping off the terrace in 'Gangster' to drinking phenyle in ths one ;)
Dharmendra & Nafeesa Ali have the sweetest romance .. like vintage wine! Dharmendra's disarming smile and Nafeesa's glowing face - were quite a treat to the eyes. Irfan & Konkona had an amazing chemistry .. you'll love the scene when they meet the first time through some matrimonial website & the conversation that follows. It seems so spontaneous! i couldn't have imagined Irfan in such a hilarious role after watchinbg his Namesake recently. The guy is absolutely amazing! And Konkona seems to be dating a lot of gay guys (page 3 & this one ;) )
KK Menon delivers a powerhouse performance once again .. as a nasty infidel husband. Metro is a definitely a watchable movie and shows life's realities .. not just of people living in metros, but other cities too. The music is good too .. though all songs have more or less the same flavor. The funny part is the band keeps appearing out of nowhere and starts singing when you leats expect them to :). I remember my friend NM's comment during the movie - "who really are these people who appear from nowhere?!!?" ;)
