Analysis:- Margarita With a Straw looks is story of Laila Kapoor (Kalki Koechlin). She suffers from cerebral palsy. She is a Sikh’s daughter. She is physically challenged but nothing at all can stop Laila from pursuing the urges of the flesh and soul in quest of self-fulfilment. Laila’s mother (Revathy) is the magnifying glass through which we view her.
She is Laila’s one-woman support system. She stands rock-solid behind her daughter despite the moments of tension and unease that inevitably erupt when the latter comes out. Margarita With A Straw story is play around Laila and how she fulfill her dreams.
Kalki Koechin have done wonderful role. It is definitely her career best awards wining performance. Revathy is always good and understated. Sayani Gupta is also an surprising performance and other supporting cast is good too.
Director Shonali Bose succeeds in bringing out the pain, angst and contradictions in the life of a cerebral palsy patient. He delivers a confident film though a better screenplay would had made huge difference. The wonderfully well-scripted film focuses on the most intimate physical and emotional needs of a woman with cerebral palsy.
One Word About the Film: Powerful acting and very well bounded story.
