Okay, so here is a film about Passion! Passion of a highly qualified MBA who slams a 4 lakh job offer for filmmaking! ‘Main Nirmata-Nirdeshak banna chahta hu’ (I want to be a filmmaker) proudly declares Suraj Kumar (Rahil Tandon) not thinking about what the society, that includes his family, has to say on this.
Time to follow your heart, he says. And he does. Now, only if chasing one’s dreams was so easy. But the dreams of producer Sushant Baliga are sure going to come true with ‘Chal Pichchur Banate Hai’. A good film that has its heart at the right place!
Pritish Chakraborty makes a decent first attempt as a director. The film is simple yet striking and portrays the sweet and sour sides of the Hindi Film Industry. From commercial producers wanting to make ‘The great Indian Curry’ adding all the possible masala elements to filmmakers copying foreign classics, the film also shows the ugly truth of the industry. But our hero is all goody goody, original and follows the right path to make it big and that’s why he is the Hero.
Rahil Tandon makes a smashing debut with a powerful performance. He makes the journey as real as possible and is sure here to stay. Bhavna Ruparel looks cute as The Hero’s support and takes on her part well. Also interesting is Sheikh Arif with his takiya kalam ‘Kaha Ho Tum’. Pankaj Kalraa is natural and convincing. Manmeet Dhanjal, Mukesh Bhatt and Sandeep Sachdev play a promising cameo. Rest of the supporting cast is good too.
A scratch in the nail is that the film is stretched at places. Also, just before the interval it gets a little too dramatic and deviates from being real. But you sure want to know what will happen next with Suraj. You will definitely relate to the film as somewhere we all have a Suraj Kumar inside us. A few dialogues inspire, A few get you teary eyed while the others are light and comic.
Music is fresh and new with striking lyrics, especially Kailash Kher’s ‘Copy Paste’ number that sure is gonna be on people’s lips. Cinematography, at places, is good otherwise regular. ‘Chal Pichchur Banate Hai’ is gripping from the beginning and ends with a ‘feel-good’ factor. Do catch it this weekend.
