Ananya Bhattacharya‘Table No. 21’ might just be director Aditya Datt’s ticket to fame: fame of the pure, unadulterated kinds. His earlier outings as a director – films such as ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’, ‘Dil Diya Hai’ and ‘Good Luck!’ – weren’t able to make much of an impact on either the audience or critics. However, with this film, Datt has undone all of his earlier lukewarm ventures, one might say. With a script that smells of fresh dew on grass, deals with an issue that is way more grave and at the end of the day, blends together an entire gamut of emotions from rage to sorrow, director Aditya Datt has carved to perfection a story that could have gone miserably haywire had it been dealt with in any different manner. Happily for all of us, the film steers clear of all of that.
