Fukrey Movie Review



Ratings:2.5/5  Review By:  Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN (IBNLive)
Four slackers in Delhi seeking fast cash make a deal with a ruthless don. But when things go wrong, as they inevitably do, they must pay the price for it. That familiar premise gets a fresh coat of paint in 'Fukrey', with co-writer and director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba putting a new spin on some old clichés. Yet, while individual scenes inspire laughs, the film doesn't quite fly because there are too many gags and not enough plot. A tighter script and more screen time for the excellent Pankaj Tripathi, as enterprising campus security guard Pandeyji, might have helped turn this moderately entertaining film into a rollicking good caper. I'm going with two-and-a-half out of five.

FUKREY mirrors the mindset of the youth of today who look for shortcuts to raise funds and attain their targets/dreams.  Although the premise/subject material may give an impression that it's a serious fare, the director and writers Vipul Vig and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba strike a fine balance between solemn and humorous. Frankly, the objective is to keep the spectator amused and FUKREY succeeds in this endeavor largely! On the whole, FUKREY is a twisted and delectably uproarious take on the shortcuts the youth of today indulge in. Watch it for the sheer novelty and uniqueness it lays on display. Recommended!

But the problem with Fukrey is that the characters and milieu are more engaging than the plot, which gets more convoluted and far-fetched as it thickens. By the climax, the writing becomes slack. Anything is possible.But there is enough pep and fun in Fukrey to make it pleasantly diverting. I’m going with three stars. I’m not suggesting that you drop everything and get to the theater. But if you happen to stroll in, you are likely to come out smiling.

There's a lot to like in Fukrey. It sticks to the subtle and shies away from the tomfoolery and slapstick you've come to expect in films of the genre. However, a few shortcomings keep Fukrey from hitting the bullseye. The crises in the love stories are unconvincing and easily overcome as is the big hurdle in the climax. Fukrey captures a similar spirit, albeit in a very different flavor and the small film experiment about life's trivialities manages to entertain for most part.

This one's no campus-rumpus or high-school pump-ups - with designer gals, prom nights, tight jeans and fancy dreams. In fact, the four young protagonists stay pretty much out-of-class, out-of-money and out of ladki-luck too. Mrighdeep infuses comedy throughout, subtle and fresh. The humour is finely spun in the writing and dialogues (Mrighdeep, Vipul Vig). There's levity in the language and some hilarious moments. The first-half is slow-paced, but it rips riot soon. The story has newness, but at times it lacks the chaotic craziness that such a comic premise can unfold. Yet, the laughs are many to keep you entertained. So what the 'fuk-rey', go, crack up on your seats.

On the whole, Fukrey is an entertaining and enjoyable fare for the youth. It may have started slow but it is bound to pick up on the strength of positive word of mouth. It will do well in the cities and multiplexes. It must be mentioned here that the investment of the producers in the film (more than Rs. 20 crore) is a bit too high for a film with hardly any face value. Incidentally, not many know the meaning of the word ‘Fukrey’, which has also adversely affected the opening.

Formulas in Hindi films, no matter how popular or timeless, have been known to run their course in due time. And that may very well be the case with buddy comedies about naively arrogant college boys with skewered worldviews and lofty aspirations.So it comes as a mild disappointment when a film co-produced by Akhtar, a film that looked so promising on paper, fails to deliver.If you absolutely have to watch this film, look out for Pandit, Bholi Punjaban and the gorgeousness of Zafar’s face.

Four Fukreys which loosely translates as good-for-nothing waste fellows are let loose in the gallis of Dilli in order to a) save their skins b) earn some ill-gotten moolah c) run miles away from a foul-mouthed female goon. This may be a new film, but it is certainly not madly novel. Delhi Belly had the same idea with the addition of some excrement and expletives, minus one fukra. Also minus the fun, because this combo of Dilli slackers-using very Dilli slang-doing very Dilli things already feels like a template.

It is a light hearted fun film that captures the flavour of the North and weaves a natural charm. Fukrey works in parts and some of them are really funny, but overall it feels like an exercise in wanting to be a little bit of everything. It sounds like Delhi Belly, looks like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and somewhere in between struggles to make its own identity.

Fukrey’ is one hell of a laughter ride. In this age of cheesy and cheap comedy which the Hindi film industry is now so (in)famous for churning out, this one – ‘Fukrey’ – despite shouting out ‘Going Cheap June 14’, is thankfully not so. The film is packed with neat amounts of laughter-inducing funny moments and one does not have his/her attention wander off for even a fraction of a second. Watch ‘Fukrey’ if you crave for generous dollops of laughter to colour your weekend up… Go cheap! Three and a half stars for Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s handiwork!

What’s Good: The leading men with strong screen presence and infectious confidence give a few relishable performances. What’s Bad: Efforted humor and ridiculously logic-less twists in the tale is excessively disappointing. Watch or Not?: Fukrey despite its fresh concept appears like a juvenile plot that squeezes out a forced laughter from you! The film with its slow pace and less mirthful story doesn’t work for me. While there are genuine good moments, along with good acting from its actors, overall the film doesn’t a reason strong enough to get recommended for watching!

‘Fukrey’ borrows heavily from the other bromances, even slipping into the ‘Delhi Belly’ tone, only it isn’t as much fun. The story about four boys – two best buds, and the other two joining the gang later on – who’d take any number of shortcuts to accomplish their dreams isn’t novel but interesting, no doubt, but one that required a tighter edit and a lot of fine-tuning. ‘Fukrey’ is a good attempt, but just not good enough.Despite the pitfalls, ‘Fukrey’ flaunts some truly well-written comic scenes that rely entirely on great lines and subtle performances, something unimaginable on the larger-than-life Bollywood canvas.

  6. Dilli, not the elite Delhi mind you, has become quite a hot favorite these days for most of the filmmakers to set their films up, not only to explore the quirkiness in the lingo and the defiance of its overly flamboyant characters but also as an integral intimate essence to the story-line. You can take out a Delhiite from Delhi but you can never the Delhi from a Delhiite...that's the attitude that holds you and keeps you glued to your seats throughout (though allegedly this statement is incorrect since it being a laugh riot experience, you are bound to jump over it most of the time) while watching Mrighdeep Singh Lamba's FUKREY.

    Vaguely termed for youth, charged with intrepid gusto to achieve their goals by any means aboveboard or overboard, ‘fukrey’ is probably the only word what could describe its characters. The way their body traffics towards girls passing by, the way they are vigorously ready to take on anyone including friends of lifetime even in their hardest times, the way they think whatever they do is the new cool thing, is very very enjoyable.

    Spending your 134 mins with these 4 youngsters (BITTOO BOSS fame Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh of ‘OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE’, Ali Jafar- the ‘sunshine’ guitarist in 3 IDIOTS and the hilariously funny first-timer Varun Sharma) are now at their own to come out of the problem they are trapped into because of shortcuts taken in life to earn some big loads of money, is like taking a short vacation for measurable amount of laughs and smiles. This roller coaster also has a couple of the most competent actors Bollywood hasn't paid much attention to till very late (the impeccably impressive Pankaj Tripathi as the 'can do everything' watchman of the college and the awesomely gifted Richa Chaddha as the local lady don) performing with sheer brilliance for equally well written characters.

    Lamba has shown us previously some nice flares of good situational comedy in his overlooked debut '3 THAY BHAI' but this is definitely a far better- near perfect addition to his kitty. Vipul Vig is another star behind camera responsible for the story and madcap dialogues with wackiest one-liners. Make it a must in your ‘to do’ list for the weekend. Laughter is guaranteed so is an entertainment that brings out the youth in you. I haven't laughed and clapped so much, so for in 2013. Don't miss it even if you haven't been in Delhi before, all your life. Some scenes sure demand repeat watch too! (3.5/5)

  7. Good movie and storyline is also quite good. The problem in india is everyone sees a starcast but not storyline or their acting. That's why we have a worst actor's like katrina kaif(only pretty face), Nargis fakhri and salman khan(over acting).

  16. When Vellapanti combines with lots of humor you get a film like Fukrey. Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akthar have put their money just at the right place.

    Fukrey is the story of four middle class boys. Two of them, Hunny (Pulkit Samrat) and Choocha (Varun Sharma), continuously trying to pass their board exams since three years, the third, Lali (Manjot Singh), wants to migrate to a regular college from correspondence and the fourth , Zafar(Ali Fazal), wants to become a playback singer. All they need, to fulfill their dreams, is Money. What happens when they approach Bholi Punjaban (Richa Singh) for a loan?

    Fukrey perfectly describes Delhi. The campus, the roads, the metro, delhi police, the language, chole bhature, and most importantly the people. Moreover, it teaches you that there are no shortcuts to both money and success.

    The first half is humorous. The acts of Hunny, Choocha and Lali are surely going to make you giggle. The second half though remains on a negative side. It is way too lengthy and the climax takes time to reach onto the conclusion. A tighter writing in the second half was possible.

    Though the Usp of the film is its not so popular star cast. Pulkit Samrat and Varun Sharma just make a very good pair. Their comic timing is superb especially the scene when Varun is trapped by Richa Singh. Manjot Singh just gets better and better with every film he does. Ali Fazal is good. Richa Singh is brilliant with her gangster role of Bholi Punjaban. The director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba delivers a good show after his directorial debut, Teen Thay Bhai.

    Fukrey is a fun ride to watch out for. You are definitely going to have a good laugh watching this one.

    Rating- 3/5
