Firangi Review

There are period films and there are films that periodically make you wonder why this genre is not relegated to history. Kapil Sharma attempts to replace cricket with comedy to a story that Lagaan brought to the screen, and fails miserably. If you manage to stay awake through the romance, perhaps you deserve a medal...

Rate this movie:

Kapil Sharma's TV comedy show was at one point highly watched, but with the TV channel not signing him for another season, Kapil had to make yet another attempt to enter films. he plays a simpleton called Mangat Ram ('Pyaar se mujhe 'Manga' bulate hain. Nangat Ram hota toh Nanga bulate" -translated roughly it says My name is Mangat Ram, people call me Manga out of love. Had my name been Nangat Ram they would have called me Nanga. A poor joke because 'Nanga' in Hindi means 'naked'). The humor is so forced, you want to slowly sink into the theater seat and simply give up your ghost.

The romance isn't anything interesting either. The heroine Ishita Dutta and kapil make appropriate sheep eyes at each other. It is a lesson in how not to act out romance in the movies. For a minute you think think the movie is going to be interesting, because the Punjabi village songs seems authentic. But then you begin noticing the same people walking about aimlessly in the scenes to prove that their village is populated.

The village, the village! The village is the cleanest village set you have seen after Lagaan, and no character. Even actors like Anjan Srivastava, Rakesh Sharma, Kumud Mishra, Inmamulhaq cannot save the film.

The idea of betraying your countrymen if you work for the 'white oppressors' could have been good, but Kapil Sharma cannot seem to forget that he's not on Tv anymore. It's neither drama, nor comedy. Just a massive bore.Â
