Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?

Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia

Cast: Ali Fazal, Shraddha Srinath, Ashutosh Rana, Sikandar Kher

I had the least expectation with this film. The film was around the corner for 8 years. Imran Khan was supposed to play the lead but it didn’t happen.

Finally, the film was made and the trailer of the film looked dated.

But the movie turned out to be entertaining and it was quite delightful to watch.

The plot of this film itself looks like an inspiration of the old clichéd bygone Hindi film era’s romantic story.

The story is about a boy meets a girl and are apart because of goons and parents; how they reunite. Getting a sense of déjà vu, right?

Since it’s a Tigmanshu Dhulia movie the narration will be in an unconventional way.

Dhulia gives a shout out to several social messages such as rampant exam cheating in small towns among others, though this narration makes the film go off track.

Ali Fazal’s role is quite similar to his role in the hit web-series Mirzapur where he portrayed the role of care-free Guddu Pandit.

But the difference is this character is not dangerous or brutal like Guddu.

The most interesting character is Tigmanshu Dhulia’s character who is the dad of the protagonist.

He is charming and overly obsessed film lover who supports his son and advice him to fulfill his passion without going to the big city, which is quite different from clichéd Bollywood film dads.

Along with the female and male leads, the supporting cast of the movie which includes Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Mishra, Sikander Kher among others has really enhanced the movie with their terrific performances.

Despite a predictable plot, the film doesn’t disappoint the viewers and it has all the elements of commercial masala entertainment.

If you forgive the bad elements of the film you will surely enjoy the film.

The boys dream big as they hustle their way into making low-budget potboilers and when they run out of money, they swindle students, helping them cheat in examinations. Every character in the film either has aspirations of being in showbiz or has an undying love for cinema. Read full review
