Traffic is a must watch film for one & all to encourage good cinema and also for the producer’s efforts to recreate such true stories. Traffic also seems to be loosely inspired by a Mexican film Amores Pores, besides it is also a remake of the late director Rajesh Pillai’s earlier Tamil & Malyalam film of the same name.
A freak bike & car accident in which a surgeon’s (Sachin Khedekar) son Rehan Ali (Vishal Singh) & his friend Rajeev (Amol Parashar) besides a superstar’s (Prosenjit Chatterjee) daughter are involved upsets many lives around them which include a traffic cop (Manoj Bajpayee) & a surgeon (Parambrata Chatterjee).
The late director Rajesh Pillai’s superb direction, the gripping script by Sanjay & Bobby and above all, the entire coterie of actor’s heart warming performances literally keeps you hooked as well as speechless.
Minuses: Traffic is based on a true story which flawlessly tells the story of how a person’s heart was transported from one city to another by road in just 150 minutes, so that it can be transplanted into a dying little girl.
