Amita Pathak and Kumar Mangat have been paired in a movie which can only be described as a viewers worst nightmare. The movie has been directed by Supavitra Babul and produced by Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak. Music by Raghav Sachar.
A small town wedding videographer, Bittoo (Pulkit Samrat) wants to earn loads of money doing what he loves best – Wedding videography. The movie opens very abruptly, with a cheesy North Indian wedding situation where our hero is the official videographer. In the very first scene he falls in love with the Heroine, Mrinalini (Amita Pathak). We’ll only learn what her character’s name much later on in the film. The first scene drags on for what seems like forever and the way the rest of the movie plays out is random and senseless. However, he gets disappointed when he’s unable to make a lot of money out of his passion. One of his advisers urges him to make blue films as that would fetch more money. When our hero sets out to do just that his perception of love and sex begin to change.
Pulkit Samrat seems like a promising new comer. He’s quite a good dancer . And If you’re ready to endure an excruciating first half, the second half actually has some pretty good scenes. Some of the supporting roles that show up in the second half of the movie are essayed by some very fine actors. In fact, they had more screen presence that the actors who essayed bigger roles in the film. Post interval there’s is a touching father-daughter scene and also a funny situation with a newly married couple. Kudos to the supporting actor who joins the story as Bittoo’s business partner in the latter half of the film. He brought a very funny aura with him.
This could take a while as there are so many. The movie starts off and I look around to find that there are hardly 10 people in the hall. Forty five minutes into the movie and people from that audience of ten start walking out so I knew I wasn’t alone in not getting the point of the film. That aside, It’s an extremely boring film and it drags on pointlessly. Our leading lady, Amita Patak has no screen presence, so thank God that she at least has a pretty face. She’s also not a delight to watch while she’s dancing though. The build up of the romance was zero. There were some very unnecessary supporting roles who were present throughout the film. Better locations could have been used
Cinematography was okay. But, there’s nothing much you can do when the story line is such a fail. Editing was okay. The music was alright. Nothing catchy. Screenplay- absolutely ghastly. The director has failed terribly in bringing out the actor in Amita Patak. Locations were bad.
The only thing good about the movie are the supporting actors who show up post interval. Pulkit is a pretty good actor as well. But it has very little to offer in the way of main story line. If I could wipe the memory of having watched this film I would do it. So unless you have a lot of free time and are willing to torture yourself during it, watch it. It’s a waste of money, time and sanity. But, if you still want to watch it I’d say wait for it to air on t.v.
