December 24, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Film: ADA A Way of Life
Director: Tanvir Ahmad
Cast: Ayaan Ahmad, Rahul Roy, Ayesha Jhulka, Nauheed Cyrusi
Made at a low budget, ADA A Way of Life brings in a fresh change from the usual Bolly fares that hit theaters this week. Though the subject has been tried and tested before, the Tanvir Ahmad production is expected to draw the attention of those who want to watch some meaningful cinema.
ADA A Way of Life is indeed a realistic presentation of any common family living in Mumbai. Ayaan is a young boy who has grown up between parents who are extremely moralistic and religious. Thus theirs is a happy peaceful family. But his world comes breaking in upon him when a sudden turn of events finds his father killed after he has received death threats for a long time before the actual incident which took away his life.
Ayaan may have watched his tolerant parents during his growing up years, but he is not prepared to sit quietly and accept the death of his father. And this is when Ayaan turns a contract killer. However, the good human being in Ayaan keeps coming back to the surface forcing him to relinquish the life of crime and danger.
Will Ayaan succumb to his anger or get over his emotional conflicts? To find the answer, visit a nearby theater.
