“FUKREY” is one such crazy story of four restless and hapless souls, running after their individual desires, brought together by one dream, which turns their not so simple life upside down. From breaking school walls, to cross dressing dancers at the ‘Ram Lila’; from a ‘Jugaad Baaz’ college watchman to leaking examination papers; from a female pimp, who runs her drug cartel through Nigerian henchmen to visionary dreams. Can the four ‘Fukrey’, the four nobodies, twist their fate and dreams into reality or will they forever be lost in the obscurity that they come from?
The plot is quite silly and has a lot of implausible stuff but the movie was quite entertaining. A lot of scenes were hilarious. It does drag a bit at places though. Dialogues are excellent for the most part. Zafar’s track was the weakest part of the movie and his father’s track did not really belong in the movie.
The chemistry between Hunny and Choocha was excellent. Choocha’s dreams were hilarious and Hunny’s interpretation of his dreams was something. Scenes involving Lali’s motorcycle were very funny. The romantic track between Hunny and his girlfriend was good too.
Pulkit Samrat was excellent as Hunny. His body language was completely that of Salman and he was copying him totally. Varun Sharma was very good as Choocha for the most part but he was irritating at places. Ali Fazal was just ok. Manjot Singh was good as Lali. Richa Chadda was very good as Bholi Punjaban. Pankaj Tripathi was very good as the guard. Priya Anand was good as Pulkit’s girlfriend. Vishakha Singh looked pretty and was good as Zafar’s girlfriend.
On Golden Pond
A retired professor and his wife go on an annual trip to their summer vacation home. But a teen left in their care disrupts the couple’s tranquility. The movie was nominated for ten Oscars and won three including Best Adapted Screenplay.
The movie is based on a stage play and so it does feel like a stage play. The movie is about relationships. So its about the relationship of the old couple which is very wonderfully portrayed. The relationship between the old man and the teenager is very well developed and forms the major part of the movie. The strained father-daughter relationship is resolved too quickly in the climax.
Henry Fonda was excellent as the old man who is worried about getting old and dying and who is always making sarcastic comments. He deserved the Oscar that he got for Best Actor and his sarcastic dialogues were excellent. This was his last movie before he died. Katharine Hepburn also won an Oscar for Best Actress for this movie. She was very good for the most part but she did overact in some scenes. Jane Fonda, Henry Fonda’s real life daughter, plays the daughter in the movie and she was bad. Doug McKeon was very good as the teenager.Tags: Ali Fazal Exclusive Fukrey Henry Fonda Jane Fonda Katharine Hepburn Manjot Singh Member Reviews Movies You Watched This Month Mrighdeep Singh Lamba On Golden Pond Pulkit Samrat Reviews
