Silvat: Silvat is a movie of an intense romance and the powerful acting of the two characters, Kartik Aaryan and Meher Mistry in the character of Anwar & Noor. It glues the audience to the narrative and stirs unsaid emotions. The director, Tanuja Chandra’s attempt, is very decent, clean and powerful.
The idea of romance in Silvat is unlike the romance we see today. Click here to see how the plot takes the audience back to 90’s where emotions were heartfelt but mostly unspoken. In most part of the movie, Anwar and Noor’s attention is glued to each other, and with just that attention, Noor never feels the absence of her husband who had moved abroad just after their marriage.
Silvat means a temporary crease and the unexpressed love of Anwar and Noor justifies the title.
So, basically, Bollywood movies are moving to a new direction to create something different, redefining the concept of love and romance and that is a welcome sign for the audience.
