CAST & CREW
Chal Pichchur Banate Hain is a family drama with oodles of comedy. This is a story of a man unwilling to sacrifice his passion i.e. making his own film. It brilliantly portrays the journey of a young MBA, who quits everything and goes to everyone to pursue his dream of becoming a filmmaker. It is Pritish Chakraborty’s debut film as a writer and director. Also, the film stars Rahil Tandon, Bhavna Ruparel, Sandeep Sachdev and Mukesh Bhatt among others.
Suraj Kumar (Rahil Tandon) is a guy who has everything a young person would die for; MBA degree, a coveted job, and an oppurtunity to go to the United Kingdom with a package of 5,000 pounds. But he gives up all of it just to pursue his dream of filmmaking. He wants to become a producer-director, and his only learning has come from watching countless movies ever since he was a kid.
His family is appalled when they come to know that Suraj has left his job to make a career in filmmaking. He faces his job to opposition from his parents and friends but support from his lady love.
Upon entering the ‘big wicked world of Bollywood’, Suraj realizes that being a filmmaker is not a cake walk. He encounters strange personalities who are not willing to promise him a break but only wants to get their work done. Suraj begins his job by sticking posters. His life is made difficult on the sets.
Suraj gets intimidated when he comes to know that his father has a debt of 10 lakh rupees to a friend-turned-foe, Ramani. Now, he was in a “do-or-die “situation for he could not afford to be choosy and thus decided to follow the industry norms to fit in it.
This movie deals with the “big wicked world of Bollywood” and has “industry mein aise hi hota hain” dialogues. It is a bit different from other Bollywood clichés as it has been shown from an outsider's perspective. Pritish Chakraborty has tried to give a message to this movie that breaks don't come easily…Especially to those who do not have a filmy background.
Rahil Tandon is promising and has done a neat job. He displays great range in his acting. Bhavna has also done a decent job. She does full justice to her role. Mukesh Bhatt has performed well. However, other character fails to make their mark.
1. The struggle, the frustration, the angst of parents, the indifference of the industry and the blatant plagiarism are dealt very well.
2. The opening credits have been shot well.
3. The music ( Gaurav Dagaonkar) of the film is pleasant.
What’s not there?
1. The cinematography is not quite up to the mark.
2. The story and the dialogues have given this movie a downturn.
The first half held some promise, but the second half is not appealing which makes you wanting to rush to the exit. Though there is a handful of noteworthy moments in the movie, one can skip this and wait for a TV premiere.
