Ananya Bhattacharya“The D is silent”. But Quentin Tarantino’s revenge drama is every bit the opposite. Tarantino’s version of the character that filmmaker Sergio Corbucci had created way back in 1966 is a man who can exact his vengeance with the strongest of wills, go to any length and breadth to rescue his Broomhilda, who can leave one’s eyes moist at times and make them laugh with his statements at others. Django ‘Freeman’ is such a man. Added to this character are some elements that only a Tarantino film can boast of having; elements which make this one so much a Tarantino film.
There’s the brutal bloody history of America, the excellently crafted dialogues, the wit neatly woven into normal scenes, the humour, the beautifully captured continent – there’s a lot that this film has to offer. ‘Django Unchained’ is the only Tarantino film that is not edited by Sally Menke since the master editor had breathed his last by the time this film was ready for the scissors, and Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’ assistant editor Fred Raskin worked on the film. An extremely praiseworthy, crisp editing makes for a viewer to be engrossed in the film, and at a runtime of 165 minutes, that is a huge achievement! The background music is in place with the pace of the film and not for a moment does any score appear out of place.With Quentin Tarantino, one needs to be prepared for violence – though in ‘Django Unchained’ it is high by even his standards. This one is not for the faint-hearted. Four stars from me for the master filmmaker’s latest.
