Holy Cow movie review: Starring Sanjay Mishra in a satisfying but problematic dark comedy

SHARE ON:

Holy Cow succeeds in highlighting a narrative from a viewpoint that is uncommon in Hindi film. Without actually using politics as a tool, Sai Kabir makes a political statement. 

Starcast : Sanjay Mishra, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sadiya Siddiqui, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Director : Sai Kabir

Rating : 3 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Highlights –

  • The film’s appropriate casting of Tigmanshu Dhulia, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Mukesh Bhatt is largely responsible for its humour.
  • The script occasionally insists on moving its underdeveloped subplots forward rather than giving them a clear purpose, which is where it falters.
  • ‘Holy Cow’ serves as both a reminder of Sanjay Mishra’s unmatched versatility and of how Bollywood has consistently underused his skills.

What would happen if a Muslim man in a tiny Indian town owned a cow but loses it? That is the subject raised by Sai Kabir’s 90-minute film ‘Holy Cow’, which he also wrote and directed. In the current environment, where Muslim identities continue to pose a threat, the answer to that question is likely to be scary. It’s noteworthy that Kabir emphasises this undercurrent with a comedic perspective, transforming his one-line plot into a potent critique of Hindutva politics and human decency.

That’s nothing short of a modest accomplishment in a Hindi film landscape filled with movies that have begun to merge into one another and exist merely for the purpose of existing.

Holy Cow is now playing in cinemas.
