Madhur Bhandarkar'Page 3': Exposé of the elite

'Page 3' takes a candid look into the lives of high society celebrities by penetrating the façade of their 'hunky-dory' lives to reveal the hypocrisy, superficiality and shallowness that lie underneath.

Director Madhur Bhandarkar deftly and authentically delineates the sketches of Page 3 glitterati by thoughtfully casting some of the real life celebs like Maya Alagh, Soni Razdan , Navni Parihar, Suchitra Pillai, Kunika, Anju Mahendru and Rehaan Engineer .




Apart from them, the film stars in main roles Konkana Sen , Boman Irani , Sandhya Mridul and Tara Sharma .

The story of the film is told through the perspective of a young journalist Madhavi (Konkana) who writes columns on page 3 celebrities for a leading publication whose editor Deepak Suri (Boman Irani) is a man of discretion.

Madhavi takes to her job like a fish to water and soon becomes a known face in the parties and get togethers. That is when she gradually begins to see the glimpses of the reality behind the beautiful facades.

The real faces of Page 3 celebs are exposed through a number of characters - businessmen and their resentful wives, social workers with dysfunctional families, politicians and their lofty talks, friends that backbite each other, desensitized cops, pedophiles, drug addicts, a gay make-up artist, a 'person' with indeterminate sex, and so on...

Konkana Sen fits well into the role of a rookie journalist owing to her unassuming persona. She catches the nuances of her character well enough and finely brings out its disillusionment of the shallow and pretentious side of high society life.
