Bollywood Crazies Opinion: First and foremost, I find the story of Pagglait and Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi very similar. Though, both the films are completely different but has same sort of flavour. Is death a comedy? This is the question you will have in mind while watching both these movies. There are many scenes in Pagglait that are hard hitting and nerve wrenching. In one of the scenes, Astik’s father has asked the Pandits is there any discount for Aasthi Visarjan of my son! That is such a poignant dialogue. There is another famous dialogue of this movie, where Rajesh Tailang character says, Badi mushkil se hamne family WhatsApp banaya tha Bhaisaab use bhi left kar gaye. This is such a relatable dialogue. Sanya Malhotra is always my favourite and I loved her character both in Dangal and Photograph movie. Here too, she won my heart without a doubt. Sanya’s decency and pauses suits perfectly to her character. Raghubir Yadav and Ashutosh Rana are some of the best actors we have in Indian cinema and they did played their role equally well. A big salute to the casting director of this film.
Pagglait movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet but it would reportedly be over 7-8 crores estimated. Though, no official figures hasn’t been updated by the makers.
Altogether, Pagglait is one of those films that will hit you hard and leaves an impact on you. This film has right kind of story and emotions that will keep you intact to the screens for around 2 hours.
Last word: Watch it for Sanya Malhotra, and Raghubir Yadav. Also watch it for its starcast, story and direction.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Pagglait Review- Brilliant (80 Percent out of 100).
