This movie belongs to a rare breed of Indian films which is spunky ,warm, funny and downright entertaining.Its major plus point is that though it deals with the forbidden issue of sperm donation it doesn’t have any verbal or visual vulgarity.I could have watched the movie with my parents and not cringed.
The movie is about Vicky Arora ( Ayushmann Khurana) , a 25 year old Delhi boy who wants to get a job but doesn’t find time to look for it as most of his day goes in shopping in the malls and partying with his friends.He lives with his mother Dolly and grandmother Bijji.He is persuaded by Dr Baldev Chadda ( Anu Kapoor) , who runs an infertility clinic to become a sperm donor.After resisting for a long time he reluctantly agrees to it for ‘pocket money’. His potent attribute earns him a lot of money.But then things take a drastic change when the love of his life Aashima ( Yaami Gautam ) finds out about his actual business.
Ayushmann as Vicky Arora is adorable.( I found his dimples sooooo cute!!!) One can’t help falling for him.He glides through the performance.While watching the movie we forget he is Ayushmann the VJ on MTV and think of him as Vicky Arora a charming Punjabi boy.I also loved the character of Bijji , a modern day grand mother who shares drinks with her daughter in law and aspires for a 42 inch LED TV and a 16 GB IPhone…Dolly is a hyperactive Punjabi Mom who had an endearing personality though she continuously nags her son.She is such a pleasant change from the stereo type Punjabi moms shown in Hindi movies.Yamami Gupta as Aashima is charming and looks ravishing.She has a graceful presence. The role of Dr Chadda ,a desperate doctor is tailor made for Anu Kapoor. His hilarious dialogues fetch most of the laughs.A special mention to the actor who played the role of Aashima’s father.He was brilliant in his role.
There is nothing over the top about this movie. No grand sets ,no foreign locations , no big actors. It’s a nicely made movie with well written script and every single actor just sparkles in his or her individual role.The music is peppy and fun.Love the song ‘Pani Da’.
This movie came as a surprise package which both charmed and entertained me for two hours.
