Bollywood Crazies Opinion: I surprising started this film to watch and get engrossed into it in just 5 minutes. I watched the film completely in on go and that’s the magic of a film which has been beautifully written. Making a film from start to end in a house and also making it engaging is a difficult task. Still, I must praise the directors and writers who made sure to make audience laugh despite the restrictions of lockdown. I personally enjoyed all the characters and they are quite relatable in todays’ time. There is a spider in this film which can be seen on the scene 1 and the same spider can be seen in the last scene as well. Even, the directors have used spider as a part of the story very well. The creative team did used TikTok element in this film, which makes it more relevant. The Dude Maga and Angel Janavi acting in TikTok videos were hilarious as hell. Vasu has an interesting role here who thinks of himself as a smart Sherlock Holmes but his wife does make fool out of him at various intervals. A scene where Vasu had to go outside to buy grocery has been showed well. In short, you can relate to the story and its characters instantly and you won’t get bored for a single second. This film hardly has a song but the music has been aptly used to create the situation more hilarious. I must say that it is a situational comedy. The directors have used Part One, Part Two, Part 3 kind of narration in the screenplay which I liked. It is a low budget film but high on content.
Ikkat movie have been directed by Esham Khan and Haseen Khan. This movie has been produced by Pawan Kumar and the musical score given by Dossmode. The cinematography has been done by Lavith. Dialogues in this movie have been written by Esham, Haseen and Ramakrishna Ranagatti.
Ikkat movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet by the makers but it could reportedly be in a range of 3 to 4 crores maximum.
Altogether, Ikkat movie will surprise you with its interesting story and situational comedy.
Last word: Watch it for Vasu, Janavi and Dude Maga. Also watch it for its brilliant story and direction.
