  • Kai Po Che: Awesome Threesome

    Kai Po Che rating: 8 out of 10(Shiraj Dakshy wrote on 23 Feb 2013)

    Abhishek Kapoor’s 2nd film after “Rock On”, “Kai Po Che” is also based on friendship..

    Based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel “3 Mistakes of my Life”…”Kai Po Che” is a story of 3 friends Ishaan, Govind & Omi and their trials & tribulation to achieve success in life. Set in the backdrop of Gujarat of late 90’s it incorporates some of the major events like the Earthquake and the Godhra riots and its effect on the lives of the 3 friends.

    The strongest point of the movie is the ensemble cast, Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh & Raj Kumar Yadav have been aptly cast for the roles of Ishaan, Omi & Govind respectively. These actors with their performance take the movie to a different level especially Sushant & Raj Kumar Yadav. Raj Kumar’s role of Govind had many layers and he has played it brilliantly. Sushant’s debut role of Ishaan is an author backed role and he does it well, you will remember his character even after the movie is over. Amit Sadh as Omi does a good job as his character changes from a naïve guy to a hard core politician. Amrita Puri as Vidya is likable with her bubbly portrayal. Rest of the support cast also does well.

    The film lacks due to its pace. The screenplay written by Abhishek Kapoor, Chetan Bhagat, Pubali Chaudhari & Supratik Sen is good but it is slow in patches which is the biggest drawback. The camaraderie between the friends is captured well with some brilliant moments. The characters are very well written and believable.

    The cinematography by Anay Goswami is rustic and gives the right feel and ambience to the narration. The production design by Sonal Sawant recreates the Gujarat of the 90’s well. Niharika Bhasin Khan has done a brilliant and detailed job with the costume. Music by Amit Trivedi and lyrics by Swanand Kirkire is good and it flows with the narration, especially Meethi Boliyan & Manja.

    For me it was not on the league of 3 Idiots or Dil Chahta Hai or even Abhishek Kapoor’s Rock on, but it is worth a watch. I would sum it up as a good movie which could have been great provided the screenplay was crisp. I will go with Three & a Half Stars.
