Rating : 4 Stars
Hey Friends I have got two movies in my bucket list for review. Sui Dhaga and Patakhaa.. let’s talk about Patakha first. It’s a family drama written and directed by vishal Bhardwaj starring Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madaan, Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaj in the lead roles. This film is based on Charan Singh pathik’s short story titled “do behne “
It is story of two sisters in Udaipur, who fight endlessly since their childhood.
The film has been directed very well, Vishal Bhardwaj has been successful in winning the hearts of the audience. The film is full of abuses and gaaliyan – that is Vishal’s movies forte. The director has highlighted the fact and given a strong learning on how the unity in the family members is broken when an outsider is given an opportunity to interfere in the family matters. How The neighbours, relatives and outsiders enjoy the quarrel of a family and feel good in dividing them. This is the social message that we get by watching this film.
Awesome cinematography of the film, the camera has given us the real feel of village-like lifestyle. Even the tiny things have been picturized very well that has provided the realistic look to the film. The picturization of Holi Song is one of the best till date in Bollywood.
Dialogues are the backbone of the film and the way they are delivered, has put soul into it. Though abuses, still enjoyable. The director has taken care of even minute things while dialogue delivery using the typical accent & dialect. I haven’t seen such a beautiful personification of India, Pakistan and America before. Wanna know how?….then Watch this film.
The Screenplay of the film makes the audience glued to their seats and wouldn’t let them take loo breaks.
Talking about the performances everyone has delivered a flawless piece alongwith the outstanding dialogue delivery. We all have seen Sanya Malhotra’s performance as Babita in Dangal. She is rocking in Patakhaa. Radhika Madaan is debuting in Bollywood and has given terrific performance. Vijay Raaj is very polished actor and was excellent. Sunil Grover has added loads of flavours and colours with his great acting skills, he has proved to be a real time entertainer.
Overall, this film is full on entertainer… and makes us recall only 3 words entertainment , e2, E3.
My rating to Patakhaa is 4 out of 5. A half star extra for handful of efforts by the whole team of Patakhaa film.
Time for me to go now, don’t forget to watch my review on the other release of the day- Sui Dhaaga… subscribe to our channel and click on bell icon to get the notifications on the updates from us.
