Movie Review: Vicky Kaushal hits the right note with yet another impressive performance in 'Zubaan'!
Cast: Vicky Kaushal, Sarah Jane Dias, Manish Chaudhari, Meghna Malik, Raghaav Chanana

Director: Mozez Singh

Producer: Guneet Monga, Shaan Vyas, Mozez Singh

Writer: Mozez Singh

Claps: Vicky Kaushal, Direction, Music

Slaps: The plot loses steam at certain points of the film and might induce yawns

What's New: Good blend of music and story-telling

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: Dilsher, a young Gurdaspur boy is frequently bullied by his schoolmates for his stammer, However he manages to sing the shabads perfectly at the gurudwara and has a deep connection with music.

One day he takes refuge in a brick-factory during an ugly brawl. There the manager-turned-owner Gurucharan Sikand (Manish Chaudhari) gives him an important life-advice and hands over a pen as a token of remembrance. This leaves an indelible impression on the young boy.

Years pass by but a grown-up Dilsher (Vicky Kaushal) still remembers that encounter. After several carefully structured events, he finally manages to meet Sikand again who is now a rich business tycoon in Delhi. Very soon Dilsher gains his trust and the latter almost adopts him. However this doesn't go well with Sikand's son Suriya (Raghaav Chanana) and his wife Mandira (Meghna Malik). The mother- son duo try every trick from the book to harm Dilsher.

Meanwhile Dilsher comes across Amira (Sarah Jane Dias), a free-spirited performer who advises him to follow his heart and reignites his thirst for music. However unknown to Dilsher, his mentor Sikand has a dark secret to hide whose revelation might change his life forever.

Will this rude shock push Dilsher deep into the world of ambitions and power or will it make him realise his true calling?

Performances: Vicky Kaushal carries the film on his shoulder so efficiently that not once does he trip over a dull moment. Right from frame one his character stays with you till the end credits roll. He enacts the stammering quite flawlessly and his Dilsher is manipulative yet raw and vulnerable at the same time. Yet another memorable performance by Vicky after 'Masaan'! We would absolutely love to see this boy doing more films.

How we wished that Sarah's character was as fleshed as Vicky's! The actress looks gorgeous and tries to lift up her role with some songs and dance. But sadly, her sparks don't last long. Her scenes with Vicky doesn't create much impact as it should have.

Manish Chaudhari delivers a solid performance and has his own 'wow' moments. Meghna Malik lends a good support. Raghaav Chanana stumbles with his dialogue delivery but manages to put a decent performance.

Direction: Mozez Singh has penned an awe-inspiring journey of self-discovery with music as its soul and has executed it well. That's quite remarkable for a debutante director!

However the film does have a few glitches. The plot falters in some areas of the film especially in the scenes between Vicky and Sarah inducing few yawns from the audience.

Swapnil Sonwane's cinematography is breathtakingly beautiful and those colourful cinematic palettes bring alive the story on the big screen. The film also boosts of some soul-stirring music.

Combo-on-offer: Coming of age tale+ Soulful music+ Good Performances

Verdict: We give 'Zubaan' CLAPS. For all those wondering why many say that Vicky Kaushal is a talent to look out for in this young crop of actors, I guess by the end of this film you will leave the theatre hall saying, 'Ajj Saanu O Mileya'.
