Movie Review: 1920 London


Movie Review 1920 London

This is the third in Bhatt’s series of films with 1920 in the title, and the locket finds our couple, Shivangi (Meera Chopra) and Veer-sa (Vishal Karwal), on one of those afternoons that they spend lovingly having tea together in a castle that should give the Queen something to think about (or at least Will and Kate). During a song sequence establishing both that love and that wealth, Veer-sa acquires a barrister degree.
And then the locket arrives, the “aatma” possess Veer, and he is left a contorted mess, literally. When Shivangi rushes her husband to hospital, an unflappable English doctor (thank god for those) takes one look, and rules: tetanus.

The “Kesar-ma” (Sushmita Mukherjee), a know-all caretaker back from Rajasthan, says it has to be black magic. Shivangi, exchanging her English clothes and minis for elaborate lehngas, travels home, and over long conversations involving “sandhya kaal”, “peepal ka pedh”, “pavitra Gangajal” and “rudraskh” finds that the only one with the cure is none other than an old love, Jai (Sharman Joshi). He is but a Gujar, or shepherd, and so their love had to be sacrificed on the altar of “Rajwada”.
