This week saw the much-anticipated release of the sequel of the 2013 Bollywood hit movie Fukrey, called ‘Fukrey Returns’. It released on 8th of December. The main characters-the Fukrey boys- Pulkit Samrat as Hunny (looker), Ali Fazal aka Zafar (thinker), Choocha played by Varun Sharma (dreamer) and Manjot Singh as Lali (the sidekick) in this sequel go in search of a reason to spread chaos and the main theme revolves around Choocha’s god gift i.e. able to see the future and Richa Chadha as the same badass girl back for her vengeance from this Fukrey boys. Earlier Yo Yo Honey Singh was making his come back with this movie but on last moment, he changed his mind. Now “Dil Chori Sada Ho Gaya” released with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety movie.
In the prequel back in 2013, Varun Sharma aka Choocha was forced to sleep in order to wake up with a bamboozling lottery-winning dream. In this sequel, he is made to make use of this gift and apprehend another lottery winning sequence. We can very well mark that there are numerous insignificant details and this is the only new thing. The lady don, Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadha) uses a politician to get out of the jail to which she was sent to a year back, only to find herself, and the rest, getting used by him in return.
Richa Chadha nails it with her badass attitude; her chemistry with Choocha is worth a watch. It’s a rollercoaster ride of laughter all around. Pankaj Tripathy’s comic timing is class apart, you are only going to laugh when he delivers his dialogues but the soul of the movie and the sale value of the movie is Varun Sharma aka Choocha, without him this sequel is just incomplete. Rest of the cast did a fine work with no significant flaw in anyone’s performance.
The screenplay of this movie is quite good but somewhere you’ll find it a little stretched but it’s all fine because that won’t affect the audience as they are busy laughing. The inch-perfect dialogue delivery and the performances completely outstand the stretched timing and screenplay.
‘Fukrey Returns’ proves to be the classic example of how light time pass movie should really be. The entertainment value of this Bollywood movie deserves quite some applauds. It’s a complete family entertainment.
The movie is directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, who also directed the hugely popular prequel. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are the producers. Fukrey Returns shares the best unfolding of the main characters, popularly recognized as the Fukrey boys. It certainly is a laughter riot, perfect to be enjoyed by friends and family.
Open Defecation has been among the major issues India has been facing. As per facts still, 34% of people defecate in the open. In fact, most of the molestation and Rape cases especially in rural India is because of this. To make people aware and keep the surroundings clean, several girls have stood up and even broke their marriages for building up toilets in the home. One such movie discussing the same context is Toilet Ek Prem Katha.The best part is now you can get Toilet Ek Prem Katha full movie from here. Yes, the name sounds absurd and weird as well, but as different the name is, as different is the movie. The movie talks satirically about how Open defecation is a major problem in our country and how corruption, superstitious beliefs have surged up against everything.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha Movie Plot
Keshav (Akshay Kumar) is a Manglik boy and he has to marry a buffalo before to get his stars at the right position. This is among the major beliefs prevailing in India. But he falls in love with the college topper Jaya (Bhumi Pedneker). He stalks her and after a disagreement, they finally fall in love with each other. With their love story blossoming, they finally get married to each other. But then begins the real trouble. Jaya who gets married to Keshav comes to know on the very first morning of their marriage that their home does not have a toilet. She is asked to join the Lota party by the fellow village women which aghast her. She demands a toilet built in the home or else she would leave Keshav. She goes to an extent to divorce him if her husband fails to build a toilet.
How Keshav fights against his family beliefs, village traditions and educate everybody fighting against corruption forms up the story of the movie.
Performances of Akshay and Bhumi
Talking about the performances, Akshay Kumar is the star of the satirical drama. He yet again gave his top-notch performance and proves he is worthy of giving star performances. Bhumi Pedneker again provided a high performance and is natural to the character. Her stubbornness towards building a toilet and her chemistry with Akshay is striking. Supporting characters like Anupam Kher, Divyanshu and others are all fit in their characters.
My Final Verdict for ‘Toilet’
Overall, Toilet Ek Prem Katha is worth a watch for every individual to understand what our nation is going through. It is not just a film but a revolution. It is a sigh of breath amidst all commercial flicks at present yet steals your heart with the societal cause. In short, do visit the Toilet once.
After Karan Johar apologized and Saif Ali Khan said in his defense with an open letter to Kangana, Kangana came up with a be fitting reply.
If Genetics play a role then I should have been a Farmer, not an actress: Kangana
Kangana says that Nepotism as a whole issue is not between Saif and her and it addresses issues concerning our society. This argument was made by Kangana to Saif demanding a valid explanation to the society and not just a personal apology to Kangana. She further explained what nepotism is and how it is practiced. Kangana next argued about the talent star kids have due to hereditary. She says artistic skills, discipline, Experience etc that are part of film industry cannot be inherited. She makes a point by saying if genetics play a role then she would have been a farmer and not an actress.
Kangana handles this Open Letter issue very cunningly
She clarified that her response to the Saif Ali Khan’s open letter should be viewed as a healthy exchange of ideas between two individuals and not any clash. At the end she says, We all are the flag bearers of Hope.
Kangana did give a befitting reply to Saif’s letter and hope all the doubts regarding the Nepotism debacle would be cleared in the industry, hence closing the issue.
Just when the nepotism debate by Karan and Kangana seemed to be over, there was funny skit played on the IIFA stage by Karan Johar, Saif Ali Khan, and Varun Dhawan. Later Karan Johar also apologized for the same to Kangana publically and now Saif Ali Khan has penned down a letter to Kangana.
Nepotism joke was not hinted towards anybody says Saif
As per the Open Letter, it states, The Nepotism Rocks joke was a joke on themselves, Saif, Karan, and Varun and it was not hinted towards anybody. But Saif later realized that it might have pinched Kangana and he personally called her and apologized. But even after that, there is such brouhaha about the same. Saif added that wishing happy Birthday or giving Condolences on social media feels fake to him and this is the reason he is not on social media. He says this is not the first time he has said something stupid on any stage and in future he might say stupid things but it was between Saif and Kangana, which he sorted out and the issue has to be over.
My own Kid Taimur is getting all hype, I have never complained: Saif
Saif Ali Khan mentioned Eugenies in Bollywood and compared artists to the racehorses. He even had an outburst on a leading Publications’ vocabulary. At last, Saif said that star kids and his own kid Taimur is getting all the hype since his birth, which is a part of nepotism, which is in not only Bollywood industry but everywhere.
