Movie: Kai Po Che! Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Raj Kumar Yadav, Amrita Puri Director: Abhishek Kapoor Producer: Ronnie Screwvala, Siddharth Roy Kapur Music: Amit Trivedi Nwoow Rating:***/5 Storyline:- New Delhi: No film, with rank newcomers in its lead, has garnered""so much interest in recent times like "Kai Po Che!" has. And yet, not having an established star in the film""has worked in its favour by giving it a freshness that is detached from from typical hindi films. Abhishek Kapoor"s new film features three young and talented actors- Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkumar Yadav and Amit Sadh, who play Ishaan, Govind and Omi and narrate the story of friendship in Ahmedabad during the turn of the century. Director Abhishek Kapoor has deliberately casted lesser known faces for the lead roles of the film so that the main focus remains on the plot. The cast of "Kai Po Che" consists""of Amrita Puri, Raj Kumar Yadav, Amit Sadh and Sushant Singh Rajput. Earlier Abhishek Kapoor has directed "Rock On" which was a film on friendship and was well appreciated by the film buffs. Ishaan is the quitter who didn"t make it to the national cricket team, becomes a wastrel, and gets admonished by his father in public. Omi is the pujari"s son, always on the right path and Govind does not only dream big, but works towards making it happen by tutoring kids and doing odd jobs to make an extra buck. They form a Sabarmati Sports Club, with the aid of Omi"s politico uncle, who gives them the land and shop for the same Kai Po Che Kai Po Che taps the obvious things cricket, religion, politics, kite flying, Garba dance and the game of marbles "" as it focuses on the eddies of Gujarat"s contemporary history as reflected in the fate of a bunch of believable, ordinary youngsters. Pretty much in the manner of the piece of fiction that it is adapted from (Chetan Bhagat"s The 3 Mistakes of My Life), Kai Po Che keeps things simple and uncluttered. Of the three buddies, one of them (Sushant Singh Rajput, smartly cast), a failed cricketer, is an impulsive sort of young bloke, who is short-tempered, slightly socially awkward, but as locals usually say of such people, he is "good at heart", "yaaro ka yaar" (a true friend). The other one (Raj Kumar Yadav, first-rate performer) is what you could describe as the archetype, mercantile Gujarati: focussed, industrious, good with money and arithmetic. The third friend (Amit Sadh), son of a Hindu priest-hardly has a personality of his own. Such a character is quite common in groups like these. He is only happy to tag along. It"s easy to channelise his energies towards what"s sold to him as a thing to do. At this point, the three are busy as young entrepreneurs, trying to give shape to a rented complex that has a cricket coaching academy, a sports equipment shop, and a Maths tuition centre. Kai Po Che Taking monetary support from Omi"s maternal uncle, the three friends open a sports academy cum sports goods shop to earn their living. When Ishaan meets a 12-year-old boy named Ali Hashmi and sees an immense untapped cricket potential in him, he takes the promising young sportsman under his wings. Thus, Ishaan gets the purpose of his life. He coaches the boy with utmost determination and an unrelenting faith. Sadly, things get sour between the friends when first, the 2001 Gujarat earthquake and then the 2002 post-Godhra riots leave a deep scar on their friendship with Ishaan taking a stand in support of Ali and his community, while Omi seething with anger over the death of his parents in the riots. Govind looks at selling sporting goods and Ishaan trains young kids for big league cricket. Ishaan discovers a young talent, Ali, who knocks off sixes on the pitch like he was born to do so. He takes him under his wing and trains him with great fervour and passion. This part of the film explores the club"s training activities with great insight for the uninitiated into the world of cricket and its mid-offs and cover drives, along with the frailties of human nature and the complexities of everyday living, dreams and desires notwithstanding. The three pivotal parts, enacted effortlessly by Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkumar Yadav and Amit Sadh, are the heartbeats of the enterprise. Sushant is a terrific actor, is blessed with wonderful screen presence and gets the timing of his character right. I see tremendous potential in him! Rajkumar Yadav has proved his credentials in the past and shines yet again in a role that"s in sharp contrast to the other two characters. He"s excellent! Amit Sadh is another remarkable talent to watch out for. Sure, he too has a couple of films to his credit, but his performance in this film will make people notice him. Besides, their on-screen camaraderie is truly infectious. Amrita Puri leaves a strong impression in a movie that"s an all-boys" show predominantly. Kai Po Che These guys grew up together in a lower middle class neighbourhood in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. For a bunch in their early 20s, it is a bit worrying how devoid they are of normal relationships with the opposite sex. Maybe this reflects the general scene among the young in middle India, it"s hard to say. One of the boys does fall in love, though with his best friend"s sister. He finally makes love to his girl after a Dandiya night with a lovely Sunita Rao number "Paree Hoon Main" playing in the background. The popularity of that song best gives away the year the film is set in. The cinematography by Anay Goswamy caresses every corner and crevice of the location, as it does the expressions and angst of the actors, and the contours of their lithe frames. The sound design by Baylon Fonseca is fantastic and adds the requisite depth to the drama. The story then envelops its main protagonists into the dark recesses of emotional despair where an invincible force of nature turns their simple existence and complex dreams into a pile of debris and dead bodies on 26 January, 2001. Insurmountable troubles abound, with the political climate taking a communal turn, resulting in riots and even more gore and death.

This is the third filmic adaptation of Chetan Bhagat novel. The first one, Hello (based on One Night At A Call Centre) was an unbearable disaster. 3 Idiots (inspired by Five Points Someone) was the most commercially successfully Indian blockbuster ever. Kai Po Che, in comparison to Rajkumar"s Hirani"s masterpiece, isn"t a comedy, it is more real, but is certainly entertaining, engaging. As an audience, it might be a mistake to miss this film. So yeah, don"t make that mistake. 相关的主题文章:
