It’s new and entertaining, it’s not brought about for the heck of piggybacking on a hit’s name. It begins off a little passive but Mudassar Aziz (director) turns on pedaling real hard after 45 minutes and the labour of love starts rolling out into a fun drama. It’s always tough to make again the past and yet maintain the viewers immersed and grinning but Aziz has done it exceptionally well.
Among the numerous elements wrong with the new Kartik Aaryan movie is a line uttered by a policeman in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. The cop asks a Muslim character, essayed by Aparshakti Khurrana, his name. When he announces that it is Fahim Rizvi, the cop, jokingly notifies him that he hopes to be careful or he’ll get ‘encountered’. Rizvi doesn’t have a comeback because the joke’s on him.
In his consecutive experiments to channelize discourse around the historically persecuted group of straight upper cast men, Kartik Aaryan yet again plays a part we’ve seen him play before. From splashing monologues about male victimhood in chic Bombay flats, the milieu has changed to the ‘charmingly rustic’ city of Kanpur, never mind that it’s one of India’s most polluted cities.
Adored the mall scene; the background music in that put in a lot. I loved the scene when Bhumi walks out on Kartik. Liked the scene when Ananya takes Kartik to a nightclub and on the other side of the fence, Bhumi is dancing away pissed drunk.
The music is blowing enough, keeping in mind the twists and turns. Necessarily can’t forget the Akhiyon Se Goli Mare song.
The only place where this film recollects you of the Sanjeev Kumar-Vidya Sinha-Ranjeeta film is Ananya’s entry being identical to Ranjeeta’s and Kriti’s to that of Parveen Babi’s.
Well if you are planning your weekend then do watch this movie for fun and entertainment.
