Plot = It’s a remake of a hit Bengali – film, where an estranged couple Dev (Varun Mitra) and Aaisha (Rhea Chakraborty) meet on a train journey. The movie then oscillates between their past and their present, leading to a relieving climax!
Opinion = I literally had no expectations from the movie. But, I am happy that I chose to review it. This one is the best among all the 4 Bollywood Releases this week. The movie has no buzz surrounding it, but still, I had a delightful experience watching it. It presents a love story, filled with dignity. The treatment of the proceedings, do not deviate from the standards set for the movie.
However, if I ignore some technical and performance related shortcomings, the movie is definitely a new breeze of entertainment. The first 10 minutes of the movie is marred by mediocrity, but, post that, it becomes highly engaging. Also, the melodious soundtrack (as always expected from Bhatt Camp) helps you connect with the lead characters, on the emotional front. I literally had tears in my eyes, while watching the climax sequence.
It’s a treat for all die – hard romantic movie lovers!
Performances = Everybody scores full marks for their performances. Actress Rhea Chakraborty was lucky to get such a meaty role. She has done a fantastic job. The icing – on – the – cake is the performance of debutant Varun Mitra. He has an outstanding screen presence. At places, he reminded me of Zain Durrani of KUCH BHEEGE ALFAAZ. He was perfect for the role. The supporting cast also, gave a very productive performance. Special mention of actress Digangana Suryavanshi, who gave a mind – boggling performance. She had expressed and conveyed a lot, only through her facial expressions.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Barring some faults in the execution, the work of Director Pushpdeep Bhardwaj is praise – worthy. He has handled an emotion – heavy subject, with finesse. As expected from Bhatt Camp Movies, the songs are extremely melodious and moving. The Background Score also acted as a catalyst in setting up the moods of the characters and the proceedings!
Rowdy Rating = 3.5 / 5
