Main Aur Charles Movie Review: Randeep Hooda shines as Charles Sobhraj in this confusing flick
Star Cast: Randeep Hooda, Richa Chadda, Adil Hussain, Alexx O’Neil, Nadu Madhav and Tisca Chopra

Director: Prawaal Raman

Producer: Raju Chadha, Amit Kapoor and Vikram Khakhar

Claps for: Randeep Hooda and other performances, Cinematography

Slaps for: Being way too stretched and confusing

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Story: ‘Main Aur Charles’ is all about the mysterious and charming murderer Charles Sobhraj and how he lures people within seconds and includes them in his plan to escape from Tihar jail. However, this confidence and charisma of Charles gets challenged by Police Commissioner Amod Kanth. What follows next is the fight between the evil and the good.

Performances: Throughout the movie, if there is one man you would feel bad for; then it is the lead actor Randeep Hooda. Yes, he gives his soul to the movie and literally breathes as the notorious criminal whom no one has ever been able to understand. He is charming, enigmatic and lets his eyes speak for the evil within him. He has a dark side and he doesn’t hide it…he truly makes bad look sexy! His confidence and on-screen persona would easily remind one of Bachchan from the 70’s ‘Don’. This movie belongs to Randeep Hooda, and his worth-drooling-over French accent.

Adil Hussain too has done a wonderful job and despite having a straight face and strict tone throughout the movie, he manages to walk shoulder to shoulder with the Randeep, who changes colors throughout the movie.

We know Richa Chadha has a lot more to offer…she could have got a bigger role. However, she does a lovely job as the girl who has been completely brain-washed by Charles, in whatever screen time she has got.

Rest all have done justice to their roles, especially Nandu Madhav.

Direction: Prawaal Raman’s movie’s visual appearance is a complete delight- from wonderful locations, sets and costumes to glamorous divas and steamy scenes. The underlying dark and mysterious charm is mesmerizing. You just cannot miss the detailing like DD National tune playing in the background, etc.

He makes sure you do not understand Charles and yet get amazed at how easily he lures people into his web of charm. He doesn’t portray the evil as great, but lets the evil be evil and yet makes you fall for his style.

However, he miserably fails at executing the story. The movie is so confusing and stretched that you might just want to go to sleep. In fact, the only person you would thank for the interval is Lord. Though the movie does get little better after the interval, it still doesn’t impress.

Combo On Offer: Crime + Drama

Verdict: We give it SLAPS for being a messed up movie, and for wasting Randeep Hooda in what could have been another career-defining movie for him.
