AUTOHEAD (2016) - An innovative but average experimental film with a noteworthy lead performance. [TTP (To The Point) Review by Bobby Sing]

02 Apr, 2020 | Movie Reviews / 2016 Releases

As suggested by the title, this is an innovative experimental film, completely focused on the central character of an auto-driver and his hidden life of a psycho. Tagged as a mockumentary (with inspiration coming from the similar projects in the west), it begins with a small crew (including the director himself) capturing the daily life incidents of Narayan - the auto driver living in Mumbai.
They follow him as he drives around the city picking and dropping his passengers all over the city as usual but soon discover many hidden as well scary facets of the so casual looking character unexpectedly. As a fresh and interesting experiment, the film has its moments including a worth praising performance, but sadly doesn’t say anything concrete and isn’t any deep introspective kind of attempt too, missing the desired impact. 

With a premise capable of giving some serious shocks to the viewers, AUTOHEAD surely could have been a highly engaging fair with a better writing and progression as a superfine realistic thriller. But in the present version, it can only be seen as a courageous experimental attempt featuring a notable lead performance and that’s it.

Rating : 2.5 / 5 
Written & Directed by Rohit Mittal
Starring : Deepak Sampat, Rohit Mittal, Raonini Chakraborty and more.

(Note : At the time of posting this write-up, the film could be seen at Netflix
