Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Gehraiyaan is one of those Bollywood films that deals with the life of city based people who not only have a stable job or relationships. Both of these has been clearly shown in this movie. Apart from that, the director also opens up about mental health of today’s people and through the character of Alisha. Alisha’s shocking experience in her childhood is still haunting her even after several years which also impacted her life in a bad way. Alisha finds a solace in Zain but she knows she is going in the wrong directions as both are committed in different relationships. Even, we see that both Zain and Alisha had family issues since childhood which also makes them relate to each other. Director has tried to prove his point and he able to achieve that with it. The oceanic waves scenes have been constantly shown in this film which sense a meaning and maybe you can compare that waves to the feelings of Alisha’s heart. Ananya’s character in this film is just like a filler that hardly adds much. The production value of this film is good and the music adds meaning to the story. The screenplay seems ok for me but it is one of those films that rural audience might not find a connect. The emotional quotient is there which makes the story of Alisha and Zain believable. In sort, a one time watch film for the city based audience.

Gehraiyaan movie has been co-written and directed by Shakun Batra. It have been produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Shakun. Kaushal Shah cinematography is good. The editing is done by Nitesh Bhatia. The musical score given by Kabeer Kathpalia and Savera Mehta.

Gehraiyaan movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it could be reportedly around 38 to 40 crores maximum.

Altogether, Gehraiyaan is very different film but definitely it will connect you if you belong to city based audience types.

Last Word: Watch it only for Deepika and it’s cinematography. Also watch it for Naseeruddin Shah’s small but effective performance.

Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Gehraiyaan Review- Distinction (70 Percent out of 100 percent).
