For his versatility. He is an actor, singer, writer and director. As actor, he has portrayed with complete ease the alcoholic, debauched and ageing pop singer whose arrogance blinds him to the fine feelings of others. The stage performance at the beginning establishes his multi dimensional abilities. Finally as a director, Dutt imbues the film with a surrealistic look of a world of dreams, drugs and irresponsibility. His performance is a cry from the heart for a lost age and a reconciliation with an emergent new angst.
