PANKH plays with your mind. PANKH is centered in Bollywood. PANKH supposedly throws a new light into the Hindi film industry. About how pushy mothers can push their daughters too far and even make their boy play a girl. PANKH is one such story of a mother who failed to make it big, abuses her husband for getting her pregnant and pushes her five-year-old son to play a girl. In turn, baby Kusum is a star. Twenty years later, Jerry (baby Kusum) is now a man and wants to make it big like he did when he was a kid. His mother is over ambitious to the point of being repulsive. Their relationship is so spooky that it makes you stare at the screen in disgust. One scene has Jerry flashing himself at his mother (sic) because she calls him a hijra.
PANKH also has this mysterious woman, Nandini, appearing before Jerry. They both have intense conversations. It appears, she is just a figment of his imagination.
PANKH is bold and in-your-face alright, but very, very crude. LSD was bold and in-your- face, but well appreciated and applauded. The same cannot be said of this flick.
Maradona Rebello who makes his debut shows some promise as an actor. I wonder what Bipasha Basu, the 'dream girl', is doing in this movie. But then, anyone can come in your dreams
