Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The story starts with a bang but goes with simple and steady way. Till the interval, we almost get the story and we know what could happen next. Sara’s character of Rinku was full of energy and gracefulness. Dhanush’s character Vishu reminds me of his brilliant performance in Raanjhanaa. Even, Akshay Kumar is full of surprise package in this film as a magician. The story is completely different and the makers did try something new this time which really makes it work for us. The mixture of north and south in this film is quite colorful and entertaining. Again let me remind you, all the three have got very difficult roles to play and yes they did given their best and we are impressed. The story is interesting in the first half but has few issues in the second half. The first half is smooth and you feel entertained but the second half is a big slow and lethargic at points. The production value is good and the visuals give meaning to this unique plot. Another highlight of this film is the music and songs by A R Rahman. The screen time could have been cut shorter for another 15 to 20 minutes could have been much better for this film. Talking about the direction, the makers did try to pull of a difficult film and they have somehow able to entertain the audience and made it a decent film.
Atrangi Re movie has been directed and co-produced by Aanand L Rai. This film also being produced by Himanshu Sharma, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar. The musical score has been given by A R Rahman. The cinematography has been done by Pankaj Kumar and this film story has been written by Himanshu Sharma. The editing work handled by Hemal Kothari.
Atrangi Re movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it could reportedly be around 40 to 45 crores maximum.
Altogether, Atrangi Re is a totally unique film that works in bits and parts for us. Audience will surely love it but it is just a one time watch.
Last Word: Watch it for the trio Rinku, Vishu and Sajjad. Akshay Kumar is the soul of this film and he brings a lot of freshness in this difficult story.
