VERDICT – 5/5

 

 


PROS –
1) Another Ayushmann small town movie, another men’s problem, and a message of self-acceptance. The movie also addresses the issue of fairness-obsessed Indian society apart from the primary issue pre-mature baldness in men.
2) The great supporting cast including Saurabh Shukla, Deepika Chikhalia, Javed Jaffrey, and Seema Pahwa completed with Vijay Raaz’s narration.
3) The amazing desification of The Champs – “Tequila” song.

 

 


CONS –
N/A

VERDICT – 1/5

 

 
PROS –
1) Satish Kaushik and Aasif Sheikh brought some fun with their character.

 

 

CONS –
1) Salman Khan tried the bollywoodization of Ode to My Father (2014) but ended up ruining it. He tried amalgamating Forrest Gump (1994) with the Korean movie.
2) The most important strength of Ode to My Father (2014) is its emotional quotient. Ali Abbas Zafar ravaged it by inserting random item numbers and tediously unfunny sub-plots.
3) Forgettable soundtrack.

PROS –
1) One time watch small-town comedy.

 
CONS –
1) New age Bollywood is clearly scraping the bottom of the barrel for small-town stories.

3) The movie ruined the original Laung Laachi song thanks to Tulsi Kumar.

VERDICT – 4/5

 

 

PROS –
1) Gajraj Rao as Jeetender Kaushik : a role tailor-made for him. He can expect either a Filmfare or a National Award for this role.
2) Surekha Sikri and her rants.

 
CONS –
1) It could’ve been funnier and entertaining with this great primary-plot.
