Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s Fukrey is a joyride set in Delhi which will remind you a bit of Delhi Belly. The youthful comedy revolves around best buds – Hunny (Pulkit Samrat) and Dileep Singh aka Choocha (Varun Sharma) – who desperately want to get through the city’s coolest college (just to woo girls). The only way their dream will come true is through some jugaad since they are not the brightest of students.
Then there is Lali (Manjeet Singh), a pakka sardar, who is a correspondent student. He prays at a gurudwara every day so that he gets admission in the same college as his girlfriend. The fourth protagonist is Zafar (Ali Faisal) who aspires to become a musician.
Choocha dreams about weird things which Hunny decodes and then comes up with the winning lottery number. So to pursue their dreams, the boys decide to take advantage of Choocha and Hunny’s unique talent and plan to win the state lottery. This is where Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadda) enters the picture. She is the new-age female gangster, who makes a lot of moolah by selling drugs, betting and what not. You mess with her and she will screw you royally. Hunny, Choocha, Lali and Zafar convince Bholi to invest in their foolproof plan. However, things go awry and the foursome get into trouble and are bullied around by Bholi Punjaban. In between all the drama and chaos, the guys warm up to each other and became buddies.
The first-half of the film is slow paced but the comic punches every now then keep you thoroughly entertained. Coming to the performances, Pulkit acts ably and his confidence is laudable. Newbie Varun is the surprise package and stands out with his perfect comic timing, amusing expressions and wacky characterization. Manjeet does justice to his role and makes you laugh with his poker-faced expressions. Ali does a fine job with whatever little lines he has in the film.
While the male leads are bang on, female actors don’t have much to do in the film. Of the three actresses, Richa Chadda has the meatiest role and gives an impressive performance as the boisterous Bholi Punjaban. Priya Anand and Vishaka Singh have only few scenes in the film.
The movie is too long considering there is no naach-gaana till the end. The signature Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s bromance style that we saw in Dil Chahta Hai, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Rock On!! is sadly missing in Fukrey. But good performances and well-infused comedy in the script is what makes it worth watching.
