Music Director turned Director, Shamir Tandon delivers his very first debut in direction, and sadly it all goes wrong for him. Movie based on kids have been very fascination among viewers, but if all is it has been well presented and well scripted, no matter if it’s big banner or small budget film, the only matters talent and smartness in story and script, which definitely can’t come in overnight. Let’s see what Shamir Tandon, along with Vineet Khetrapal and Kaushik Datta who had made their debut, has delivered Satrangee, or Berangee.
The story is very simple but yet innovative. Nainital based school boy Pappu (Siddhartha Sanghani) have their closest best friends and lives happily with family. One fine day his one of the closest friend Kuhu (Rajvi Suchak) shares his dream to fly on a big giant parachute. Pappu gets emotional and shares his feelings about Kuhu’s dream to his other friends. Somehow then they got information that in Mumbai there’s one ‘Parachute Land’ where they can get ‘Parachutes’. All the friends, along with Pappu, decides that they all will travel to that Parachute Land and will get one parachute from there for their dear friend Kuhu. Now Pappu and his friends ran away from Nainital with all their bag pack to head away in an unknown city, Mumbai, leaving their parents in worry and anxious. After reaching in a strange city they encounters with many strange and hurdles which changes their life completely. The story takes a one more turn where Pappu and his buddies get accidentally involved with a bunch of criminals and terrorists who are gritty to create terror in the city with uncertain parachutes. What follows next is a thrilling experience what Pappu and his buddies get in touch and how they safely escapes from the big trouble along with trapping terrorists to save the city and nation.
Story stars from nowhere and ends from nowhere, that’s the basic one line review which can be said for ‘Satrangee Parachute’. The main idea and theme is quite good, but the overall narration and the way the script is being molded in its own term, is somewhat not at all impressive. Scene after scene you will be bore and yawn many-a-times. You will just feel as something is moving on and on and on, and you sitting just there, watching the time, expecting for ‘Interval’ to arrive, after interval waiting for the movie to complete, watching the exit door to be open towards the climax, and just before the end credit title comes, exit doors opens, you take your mark and will say on your mind ‘On a mark-Get Set-GO!!!’. This will be the exact situation is you will watch this movie till the very end.
Not only this, the direction is also very poor. The scene was not able to justify as per the story, and so many-a-times many scenes were looking abruptly in between, and by that sadly the scenes were finishing hurriedly. Performance wise it was only kids, by whom the entire movie was dependable, and they performed quite well also. However the experienced players like Jackie Shroff, talented Kay Kay Menon, Zakir Hussain, Rajpal Yadav and others were on a average scale, but do its pale script all were not at all notable and commendable as per their character.
On the whole, this movie will be too complex for kids and quite boredom for adults. Neither them can watch at theatres, nor at television also.
