Director: Style Chopra Dhar
Artist: Anil Kapoor, Rajkumar Rao, Sonam Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Brijendra Kala
Anil Kapoor sang for Manisha Koirala by singing ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga’ in 1942 A love story released 25 years ago. Sonam Kapoor sings for his girlfriend Regina Kassandra in ‘It looks like a girl saw’. In relation to the song, this change also indicates a change in our society and the cinema in these 25 years. While leaving some exceptions, homosexuality has not yet been accepted in both society and cinema, but there is no crime either. Earlier it was not considered appropriate to talk on this, but now it is being talked about. If the matter has come out, then perhaps it will reach far away.
Now the story is about …
Moga, Mukesh Ambani of Punjab, is the garment business of Balvinder Singh (Anil Kapoor) Chaudhary. She comes to Delhi in a wedding where her daughter Sweety meets Kahu (Regina Cassandra). Sahil Mirza (Rajkumar Rao) is a playwriter whose play is not liked by anyone. Her father (Kanwaljit) is a famous film producer. One of his films was written by Sahil, who did badly. But Sahil Play does not leave writing.
One day the rehearsals of a drama written by Sahil in Delhi are going on. Only then will the sweetie, who hides from his brother, arrive there. Sahil helps her Sweetie likes it and she reaches Moga to find out. In this work he helps Chhataru (Juhi Chawla), who is a caterer, but his hobby is acting. Sahil moga reaches with Chhataru ji and also succeeds in meeting sweetie, but only then comes Siapa in his story. To cure that Ciapa, he plans to stage a play so that things get better.
This is Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s debut film Chopra Dhar’s sister and he has chosen a sensitive subject for his debut film. They have presented this topic interestingly. They did not even resort to frivolity for lesbian relations. There has not been any incandescent scenes, no bilateral dialogue is provoked, which proves that he really wanted to tell his words seriously.
Gazal Dhaliwal’s writing is fine. Although there was scope for some improvement in the script, the dialogues of the film are as per the need of Seen. They also have a lot of quarrels and even sympathy. Although somewhere elsewhere, the dramatization is a bit more, especially in Climax, which makes the film a bit lighter. Songs are simple. Also, songs interfere with the flow of the film in some places. There is a sound talk that suddenly starts singing. Cinematography and editing of the movie is fine. The biggest feature of this movie is that it gives the audience with clarity without any activism, without any reason. Introduces the feelings of homosexuals in a sensitive way, laughs, laughs, and produces effects. Despite the many cinematic shortcomings, the film touches a new ground in its own way.
The film’s starcast is its strong side. Every performer looks fit in his role and everyone has got proper space too. Sonam Kapoor’s acting is good. He is quite successful in gaining his role. Anil Kapoor is one of Bollywood’s best actors. His performance is magnificent. As father and daughter, he and Sonam’s chemistry can be felt in the movie. Whether comedy scenes or sentimentality, they overwhelm. Rajkumar Rao’s work is amazing. They are challenging movie-by-film themselves. Every aspect of his character, he lives with such ease that there is a sudden flowing out of his mouth.
Juhi Chawla looks very sweet For the role of Chhataru ji, the body language which was supposed to deliver such a dialogue, it appears in his acting. ‘Mind shattering’ seems to be ‘mind blowing’ on everything they say in the film. The characters of Brijendra Kala and Seema Pahwa are fun and both bring some light moments in the film. Abhishek Dauhan’s performance as Sweety’s brother Bablu is good. He has presented a brother’s natural dilemma, anger in a natural way.
See or not see …
It may be that this movie is not about the majority of people who disliked homosexuality, and did not accept the majority of the people, but they did ‘Neutral’ right for some time only. In the beginning of the year, the coming of this kind of film also shows that the new generation is slowly preparing itself for the right change.
