murder in bollywood,
This review is from: Six Suspects (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Radio dramatisations can be a challenge to the casual listener as it is up to you to project the images that would appear in a film.
This recording of Swarup's follow up to Q & A (Slumdog Millionaire)is extraordinary since it is claimed to be recorded on the streets of Mumbai and indeed the authenticity of the sound effects is certainly helpful at picturing the action.
The story is convoluted and multi-layered (see other reviews) but I am more interested in the experience of listening to a radio play in this way.
If this is the way you enjoy accessing novels/drama etc you can find no better production than on this CD.The actors are all Indian as is the production team and this leads to a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I feel that this story will eventually be filmed as was Q&A as it is so rich a story and the visuals for an Indian crime story beg to be seen
