Kai Po Che

A dream team film. Directed by Abhishek Kapoor of ‘Rock On’. Based on Chetan Bhagat’s Novel ‘The 3 mistakes I made in my life’. Produced by UTV.

At 2 hours 4 minutes, this film serves you the meat, without ANY fat. (Maybe not an appropriate analogy for a Gujarati themed movie!) 3 friends, an unconventional livelihood and some memorable historic events make this a gripping film. Appropriate music, real sets, natural locations and sharp characterization leave you with a complete experience. Gujarati culture has not been portrayed like this on screen before, very true and identifiable. The story moves fast, but captures detail and connects with the viewers on many levels.

Raj Kumar has done a few films before and is dependable. Sushant Singh Rajput, who makes a debut with this film, has one overriding personality trait which he displays well. His acting graph is surely more diverse and will show up in his future films. But it is Amit Sadh who steals the show with a controlled performance, intense expressions and a hidden rage.  Amrita Puri lights up the screen with her vivacious character and looks gorgeous in all the close up shots.

For the love of cinema, cricket and the spirit of friendship, watch Kai Po Che. This kite is gonna soar!
