Claps For: Clean humour, engaging characters, and a general feel-good vibe.
Slaps For: Meandering storyline, convoluted plot.
Popcorn Refill: Quite a few.
The Story: Writers Vijay Kapoor and Aman Sachdeva seem to have had good intentions for the movie to begin with, but they lost the plot somewhere along the way. The story is so difficult to follow; one loses interest quarter-way through the movie. Nevertheless, there are some saving graces. The chaddi-buddy friendship between Kuku and Ronnie, the heartwarming turning point in Kuku's relationship with his father, the blushingly cute courtship of Bihari and his wife, and the light and snappy dialogue almost make up for the painfully obvious lack of story.
Performances: Newcomers Siddharth Gupta and Ashish Juneja are instantly likeable as a pair of cheeky, earnest and ultimately sweet buffoons. Their easy camaraderie is believable for anyone with a childhood friend. Simran Kaur Mundi is pretty and unassuming in her role as the neighbourhood item, but her character and Gupta's had hardly any chemistry to pull off a budding relationship. Our favourite characters were undoubtedly the wily and sharp-tongued Prabhakar, Ronnie's impressive Dadaji, and the poor guard who only wants a drink and pillow talk with his wife back home.
Direction: Director Aman Sachdeva did not create a masterpiece, not has he attempted to. This movie is an exercise in selling tickets and filling seats by the bulk, and it certainly will not fail to do so. That was the objective, after all.
Music: The soundtrack composed by Palash Sen, Parichay, Mikey McCleary, and Anand Bajpai is painfully loud, obnoxiously happy, and entirely forgettable. The presence of the all the songs except for the two during the start and end credits is frankly unnecessary.
Combo on Offer: This movie is a combination of a semi-believable story, and totally believable characters. Watch it if you want some brainless fun and a few good laughs. The actors bring life to an otherwise dull script, and their impeccable delivery will guarantee chuckles even while you shake your head at the sheer senselessness of it all.
Our Verdict: We give the movie #Claps for making us leave the theatre feeling like the way the movie was made: with a belly full of laughter, a light heart, and an empty mind.
