Movie Review

                         "Newton movie review"

Aurangabad, 7 October,2017 : Newton is a 2017 Indian black comedy drama film co-written and directed by Amit v. Masurkar. The film stars Natinal Award winning Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil and Raghubir Yadav. The film is produced by Manish Mundra under Dishyam Films.

Newton had its world premiere in the Forum section of the 67th Berlin International Film Festival, and is set to have its North American premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival where it screens in the International Narrative Competition section. It was selected as the Indian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academedy awards. At the conceptual level, the movie was reported to be similar to the 2001 Iranian movie Secret Ballot in its plot, backdrop and characterization but totally different in its tone and the treatment.

"Newton Kumar, a rookie government clerk,is send on election duty in the conflict-ridden jungles of chhattisgarh, which is under the control of the naxals. Despite the odds stacked against him, Newton Kumar tries his best to conduct a fair voting process in the region. But in the end the conclusion is we cannot change the system until we root it."  -Ashlesh Khadse

"A classic example of acting is most important part in direction if the on-camera things are considered. This movie tried to touch the problems that are still faced in India like dowry child marriage and their main goal elections held in India." -Prajakta Khiste

"Problems they have shown are said to be gone from the country but it is only on paper.  But one issue which is still one of the favourite is the electron period and the things happen in that. The location shown in the movie is controversial a as this may cause the naxals to revolt against the government. They showed just have a photo in a newspaper or news channel the drama they create. Literally a heart touching movie and could not change the society but at least lit a spark."  -Vaishnavi Malani

"Performances would ring hollow with the lack of a meaningful screenplay. Writer-director Amit Masurkar and Mayank Tewari have painfully captured the bittersweet essence of the people of an obscure jungle that's far-flung from civilization. This is also evident in the cinematography; each shot is thoughtfully structured and lovingly composed. combined with a subtle sound design that's hard to miss-this film has everything going for it. 'Newton' has dared to take on an issue that out of our blissful ignorance. Amidst laughing, it'll leave you thinking, which-and we need to be reminded of this-is what good cinema should do. Both your funny bone and your grey cells will thank you for watching it."  -Ashvin Palkar
