It is always a great challenge and very difficult to recreate the same level of magic which you experienced with your last film but The Director of Dangal somehow manages and takes you to the world that is full of exuberance and fun that a hostel and college life has to offer. A world where one meets interesting characters shares great times and becomes friends for life. Annirudh (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Maya ( Shraddha Kapoor) and the Gang Sexa ( Varun Sharma ) Derek (Tahir Raj Bhasin ) Mummy ( Tushar Pandey ) Acid ( Naveen Polishetty ) and Bevda ( Saharsh Kumar Shukla ) each one as unique as his name. Together the group takes you on a journey, which is full of fun and camaraderie and interaction. The story offers a seamless transition between the past and present where friends join in the journey and have a re-union they never ever thought of.
Sushant Singh tries and puts in his best as the main lead and as a hands on guy having solution to all the problems. Shraddha Kapoor is her usual at her charming best. Tahir Raj Bhasin with his intense look and strong screen presence sails through leaving an impact. But the real revelation is Varun Sharma who tries to make light of every moment adapts himself to the given situation and creates the much deserved relief. Varun has evolved over the years playing multifaceted characters. Indeed a treat to watch the ensemble cast along with the antagonist Prateik Babbar who comes across to deliver the right punch.
Nitesh had nearly sealed the narrative but for some avoidable faux passes like when all the friends take a pledge to sacrifice something dear and Anni avoids Maya , Mummy stops receiving call from his Mom and doing such stupid things doesn’t go well in sync with the basic premise of the film because this is nowhere near Chhichhorapan.
And those motivational sessions being held in the ICU for the patient who is inflicted with brain injuries and for that matter the brain games being played with him is totally misplaced and defeats the Very purpose for which the film is made. But see the irony the film’s story unfolds from the most inappropriate location and how any Hospital or Surgeon for that matter will allow such long discussions with noisemaking gang in an ICU where if I am not mistaken an utmost SILENCE is required. I still keep on wondering as to how come Director Nitesh Tiwari could not think of any other more logical platform to unleash his drama after having worked on the facts of the subject and done research with some true incidents which he has incorporated in his film. As a cinematic liberty fine but still not palatable and digestable for sure !!!!!
But like I said earlier that since a genuine effort is made by the director in sending across a strong message that life has its ups and downs and especially during your formative and wonderful days of your youth all those element of mischief, naughtiness, freaking out, venturing out, the madness that engulfs you and makes your indulgences blow out of proportion, in fact actually mould’s you for your future to face the reality of life with practical approach.
There are some whistle blowing moments too when the losers gang work on their strategy to beat their opponents.
As for the music The song track “Woh Din” brings back worry free memories shared with friends and has been shot with full blast.
Woh Din has been sung by Tushar Joshi, composed by Pritam and penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Peppy track titled ‘Fikar Not’ showcases the actors in a young and middle-age avatar like they were featured on the poster of the film has been crooned by Nakash Aziz, Antara Mitra, Amit Mishra, Dev Negi, Sreerama Chandra and Amitabh Bhattacharya.
All in All Nitesh Tiwari makes it Amply Clear through his film Chhichhore that at every given stage in life You Lose Some and Win Some But Never You are Losers All The Time and Winner for the same !!!
You can take your bit of Life’s Lessons if it matches your sensibilities with that of the “Chhichhore’s Chhichhorepanti ???
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Stars for the genuine effort on the part of the Director and the Producer when you see so much trash being dished out in the name of Cinema and wonderful performances from the ensemble cast !!!!?️
