Anurag Kashyap has once again proved that he is not afraid to come out of his comfort zone. Many directors after reaching this stage of their career might lack the initiative to experiment with their genre and themes, but Kashyap continues to baffle us. Choked is unlike any of his dark political and social films. It is personal and humane.

One line: Gulabo Sitabo is avoidable for most of the people. The film will speak to its select audience, who won’t be able to avoid it. The film is far from perfect, but the world of the film is something that draws you in slowly but surely. I’ll need another couple of times to see this film, and although I know the film isn’t for theaters, such textures and tones on screen would have been magical.
