A talented yet deeply troubled screenplay writer Lekh Kapoor wants to break free from the shackles of conventional storytelling, but ends up taking up the job of rewriting the script of a Tamil blockbuster. His life takes a U-turn when a mysterious girl becomes the object of his obsession.
A wannabe revolutionary in the field of screenplay writing, Lekh Kapoor (Amit Kumar Vashisth) is let-down by the boisterous ways of showbiz industry and resolves to introduce an unconventional technique of storytelling that does not conform to the protocols of how a script is supposed to be written. But his henchman Irfan, who goes to painful lengths to find work for his 'genius' friend, convinces him to take up a job in the space of commercial cinema for making ends meet.
Worn out, shattered from the wounds of an ugly marriage with Ayesha (Preeti Sharma) and highly delusional, Lekh begins writing his script, only to chance upon Maya (Teena Singh) who goes on to become the object of his obsession. The recurring theme in 'The Window' is a wholehearted writer's plight in this unforgiving industry and the myth that pathos alone can bring out the artistic genius in a storyteller. Director VK Choudhary's version of struggle in an unstable profession seems unrealistic in parts. The film's frequent deviation from the plot, only adds salt to the injured script.
Amit Kumar Vashisth as the shabbily dressed, aloof and enraged Lekh is the highlight of the film. Despite the script going haywire after the first 30 minutes, he stays true to his character of utter lunacy and situational depression. Probably in a different setting, with a much tighter script, we will get to see an even finer version of this first-rate actor. His partner-in-crime Preeti Sharma's naivety is required to balance things out in this otherwise laden-with-screams indie flick.
The camera work and its subsequent editing have damaged 'The Window' 'beyond repair. Young director VK Choudhary sets out to tell the tale of a revolutionary, but tries to fit in too many exemplars along the way. Acting works, the story doesn't.
