Hu Tu Tu - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

"Hu Tu Tu" is Gulzar's second movie on women in politics, the first being "Aandhi". The latest has Suhasini Mulay as the women leader, Tabu as her daughter and Sunil Shetty as Tabu’s love interest. The main male lead is Nana Patekar playing the right hand of Suhasini. Nana is from a lower caste and takes care of the voter bank of his community.
The film revolves around the inner games of politicians and their relations with the terrorists. It shows how politicians use their people and how they don’t even care about their family responsibilities while looking at the opportunities of moving higher in their careers. The turn in the script comes when Suhasini’s own followers and her family both go against her. The climax is well shot and scripted. A few songs are well written and brilliantly composed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
But the film is less impactful than "Aandhi". May be because this is on a more bolder subject. And news was also there indicating that the final edit of the movie was not done according to Gulzar's vision for some unknown reasons. Still with Nana in top form and Tabu giving him ample support, it is a Gulzar masterpiece and a treat to watch.
