Netflix Maska Review: “My bun maska is my Ikigai”

Maska is a Netflix film written and directed by Neeraj Udhwani. Apart from directing and writing critically acclaimed short films, Neeraj has written the screenplay and story of Mere Dad ki Maruti. He has also co-written the screenplay of Dil Toh Bachha Hai Ji.

This film features Prit Kamani as a Parsi teen, Rumi Irani, who dreams of becoming an actor. Manisha Koirala plays the role of being an orthodox mother who wants her son to carry out the legacy of their “Rustom cafe.” Singer Shirley Setia as Persis Mistry and Nikita Dutta as Mallika Chopra exist only as accessories to the journey of the male lead.

About the film

Rumi, a nineteen-year-old teen, wants to become an actor and get into Bollywood but is not ready to accept rejection. He is frustrated with the conservative and authoritative mindset of his mother and decides to live with his girlfriend. Finally realizing that he has been living a delusion, he decides to continue his family’s legacy, the “Rustom Cafe”.

Neeraj Udhwani has shown the struggles faced by a person in achieving his/her dreams, only to realize that not all dreams can be turned to reality. It focuses on the conflicting decisions that one needs to take to grow in life.

The cinematography of the film was outstanding but the storyline and the acting could have been better. The title of the film, “Maska” relates to bun maska, but it makes no sense when compared to the other meaning of maska (to butter someone up).
