If insiders are to be believed, Jimmy Sheirgill has come up with an astonishing performance in STRANGERS; the kind which even surpasses one of his career best performances that was witnessed earlier in YAHAAN.
Those who have watched the film in private screens are vouching for the fact that Jimmy is a revelation in this thriller which could prove to be a dark horse at the box office. On being told about the buzz that his role in the film has created, Jimmy says modestly, "The film releases today and I would rather let the audience do the talking. At my end, I definitely want to say that working with director Anand L Rai has been a thoroughly satisfying experience."
"Once you watch STRANGERS you would realize that it is one of the most intelligent films coming from Bollywood. Not everything has been spoon fed to the audience but still finer details are laid down in such a manner that once caught, they never fail to surprise."
He adds with a chuckle, "Yes, the film has been aimed at multiplex audience. Still, I was surprised to see the reactions of my make up man who saw the film as well. He belongs to the rural part of the country and I wasn't too sure how would he react to the film's plot. However, once the screening was through he was highly impressed. When I asked him about some finer aspects in the narrative, he seemed to have grasped them all and was quite convincing in his understanding of the film. To be honest, it made my day!"
"The film has a lot of mind game in action during those 100 minutes duration. Seriously, the plot is not just about two men conspiring to kill each other's wife; it goes much beyond that. Once you watch and revisit it the second time around, you realize what added up from one scene to another", concludes Jimmy.
