Nandita Das and Samir Patil have penned a rather boring story about the lacklustre life of a delivery man. Since their screenplay has no worthwhile highs or lows, the drama is flat and, therefore, fails to involve the audience. After all, it is common sense that without a dramatic story, people won’t be interested in watching the life story of a delivery man. There is not a single scene which could make the viewers sit up and marvel at the thought or the writing. Even the conflict is so predictable that the excitement quotient for the viewers is almost completely missing. There is no climax worth the name. Resultantly, the film ends rather abruptly. On the whole, Zwigato is a non-starter. It will go largely unnoticed.

What Zwigato does very well is present a story of strife and struggle in a nation and a society that thinks nothing of heaping indignities upon those that have been pushed to the margins. The pace and rhythm of Zwigato hinges on the flow of the life that it portrays. But unlike a food delivery boy whose future in this line of work relies heavily on pleasing customers and receiving five-star ratings, Nandita Das does not overly sugar-coat the film’s central message. Zwigato hits home with equal measures of power and pathos.

Overall, the film unfolds at a lazy pace, which could leave you restless. However, it is worth a watch for its intent and fine performances. Above everything else, what the movie effectively does is leave you with empathy for those who do odd or menial jobs to make our lives simpler. Think about it.

Das’ film, which she has co-written with Samir Patil, takes care not to become too miserabilist even as it doesn’t wish away the burdens of its characters. What it does is ask us to bear witness, and it does that very well.

On a normal day when the doorbell rang from a delivery person, you might have offered him water and assured him a good rating. However, after watching Zwigato, you will want to delve deeper into their lives, know about their family, their struggles. You might even want to tip them an extra buck. That’s the impact the film leaves. Zwigato is the perfect portrayal of the gig economy. Even though it moves at a lazy pace, you should watch it for the people who do menial jobs. Zwigato is a film that should be been released on OTT as it is not for a theatre-going audience.

While the film is sort of a mirror of society, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. The film is shot in art-house style cinematography that not everyone will enjoy. The film also doesn’t really have highs and lows or a big ending, unlike usual Bollywood movies, which might bore people. But nevertheless, I’d suggest, if you enjoy cinema, give Zwigato a shot.

Zwigato is a reminder that the more things change, the more they remain the same, or even regress. Nandita Das’ storytelling style is so unpretentious and subtle, that she could easily be underrated. Watch carefully though, and through her cinema you will see a director with a profound interest in the human condition, an acute understanding of socio-political dynamics in India, and a firm handle on her craft.Zwigato is gentle, thoughtful entertainment.

Up until now, Kapil Sharma was only known for the comedy he did in “The Kapil Sharma Show”. But this time, Kapil Sharma has won hearts with his extremely realistic acting in Zwigato, a new movie that portrays the real-life struggles of delivery people working in the online food delivery sector. Kapil Sharma plays the part of a person named ‘Manas” and has really portrayed the role of a delivery person so well. From his body language to the way he spoke, everything reminded the audience of their own experiences while ordering food online.

Zwigato also points at the troubling unemployment situation in the country, which is used as an excuse by employers to further squeeze their workers.Quite a few films which have attempted to take on all these issues have ended up being weighed down by it all. But, in Zwigato, all of this is so deftly weaved in that the script proceeds organically without ever making us feel that someone is talking about an issue. Rather, all of these appear as real, human stories. It is the strength that comes naturally to a film that is firmly placed in the streets, unapologetically on the side of the workers, as a true working class cinema.
