“The house is made of bricks and stones, but the house is built by the people who live there”. We have heard this dialogue in many films and read it in many books. This film of Laxman Utekar also revolves around this thought. Where there is a happily married couple, who live in a joint family, but one day they suddenly decide to get divorced. Confusion ensues when the matter reaches the family, and from here begins the comedy of errors.
“Dekho maine dekha hai yeh ek sapna, phoolon ke shehr mein ho ghar apna..” When Saumya and Kapil come to see the flat for themselves, we get a feel of their yearning and excitement with this song. This couple of Indore lives in a joint family, where mother-father, maternal uncle-aunt all live together. There is a lot of love in the family, but being middle class, the living space in the house is less. Both Kapil and Saumya work outside, but they have to romance away from the eyes of their family members. So, thinking about their personal life, both of them plan to get a separate house. But as is the case with every middle class couple, the house is out of their budget. Both are disheartened when they come to know about the “Jan Awas Yojana”. In order to fulfill their dream of owning a house, both of them take some decisions, which greatly affects their relationship. Can Kapil and Saumya’s relationship remain intact with the same love till they get home or does a rift come in it? This becomes the story ahead.
It would not be wrong to say that the film Vicky Kaushal rests on the shoulders of There are many strong actors like Inamulhaq, Sharib Hashmi, Sushmita Mukherjee, Rakesh Bedi, Neeraj Sood in the film, but they have not got enough screen space to leave their mark. There are a few effective scenes and dialogues in most parts and there he has shown his best. In the main characters, Vicky Kaushal is strong in emotional scenes, while in comedy he tries his best to maintain a rhythm. However, the actor gives his best in serious roles, be it Masaan, Sardar Udham or Uri. Sara Ali Khan And the chemistry between Vicky is good. There is a comfort level between the two, which is visible on screen as well. Sara needs to work on her dialogue delivery a bit. However, in this film, the director has given her the right opportunity to do comedy and even show emotions and she seems to be trying her best.
direction and technical side
Laxman Utekar has earlier given films like ‘Luka Chuppi’ and ‘Mimi’. ‘Zara Hatke Zara Bachke’ is also a film of the same flavor, but here the screenplay looks a bit weak. The idea of the film is quite interesting. But there seems to be some mistake in bringing him on the screen. The first half of the film passes very fast and also entertains. But in the second half, the story seems to drag on. It was necessary to have a strong point of conflict to bind the film, which we find missing here. The story becomes very weak by the time it reaches the climax. However, the director has also touched upon social issues in a very light hearted way in between, be it the style of working in a government office.. or Saumya calling herself Saumya Chawla Dubey every now and then. These things make it a family entertainer.
The editing of the film by Manish Pradhan could have been a bit tighter..especially in the second half. A positive aspect is the music of the film..composed by Sachin-Jigar. And the lyrics of the song are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
This can prove to be a good film to watch with family on OTT while sitting at home, where you can also fast forward some scenes. The film makes you laugh in a light way, makes you emotional as well as entertains. Vicky Kaushal – 3 stars for Sara Ali Khan starrer Zara Hatke Zara Bachke from Filmbeat.
