Bollywood Crazies Opinion: First thing First, there are few changes in Cuttputlli as compare to the original, which is good. Though, the original one is far better than this. The ending is ok but it could have been much better. Akshay Kumar looks good as a police inspector but his 100 percent dedication seems missing this time. Though, there are few scenes, where Akshay did make us emotional. The first half is good but the second half seems lethargic especially in the end. Thank God this film has one song in the middle which should have been avoided as well. The second song Raaba has not been a part of this film. The editing work is OK but its the screenplay that looses its grip in the second half. I feel Sargun Mehta delivered a good performance here. Ranjit M Tewari is the director here and he did a decent job just like he did in Bell Bottom movie (2021). This is not one of those films that you will remember for a long time but definitely a one time watch. The cinematography and the background music is average here.
Cuttputlli movie has been directed by Ranjit M Tewari and the screenplay work done by Aseem Arora. It have been produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh. The cinematography work done by Rajeev Ravi and the editing done by Chandan Arora. The background musical score given by Julius Packiam.
Cuttputlli movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it could reportedly be around 38 to 40 crores maximum.
Altogether, Cuttputlli is one of those films that is surely a decent watch on OTT but it could have been a big flop in theaters.
Last Word: Watch it for Akshay Kumar and Sargun Mehta genuine performances.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Cuttputlli Review- First Class (60 percent out of 100).
