The upcoming film by Vinod Chopra starring Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani released today (June 15). The last movie that released under Vinod Chopra Films banner was 3 Idiots directed by Rajkumar Irani released in 2009. The movie was a blockbuster hit which won millions of heart!
After 3 years, ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’, along with the other two stars of 3 Idiots, is coming out this year. This movie is about a person who believes in dreaming big no matter how difficult it is to achieve it and wants his son to have the same passion for his dreams.
Synopsis: A little boy thinks of nothing but cricket. His father Rusy, thinks of nothing but his little boy. To fulfill his son’s dream of playing at Lord’s cricket ground, the honest and upright Rusy takes a reckless step. He borrows a gleaming red Ferrari. Just for one hour. The only trouble–he doesn’t inform the car’s legendary owner. A wild, breathless, bumpy ride begins. A naive Rusy must dodge bullets and bouncers for one unforgettable night, and play the role of a perfect father. Can he do it?
Performances: Sharman Joshi does a fantastic job as Rusy. He under acts perfectly and makes the film worth watching. Ritvik Sahore does a neat job as Kayo. Boman Irani as grandfather strikes with his character. Paresh Rawal is nice in his cameo. Vidya Balan’s item song is natural. Satyajith Mishra is adequate as coach Vilayat. Seema Pahwa, Nilesh Divekar and Deepak Shirke offer decent support.
Technically: Rajesh Mapsukar assistant for Lage Raho Munna Bhai and 3 Idiots debuts with Ferrari ki Sawaari. Although Mapsukar’s script is a bit let down, but makes a strong comeback with touching scenes between father and son. Raj Kumar Hirani’s storyline is thin and strange. Rajesh Mapuskar and Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s screenplay sets out fine. Second half fails to drags a bit with some irrelevant scenes. The scenes between servant and watchman searching Ferrari, Marathi leader and his son scenes starts off well but does not add much value in the end. The scenes of Kayo shown playing cricket were not effective and similarly emotional scenes were good but not so efficient to make audience cry. Music by Pritam Chakraborty is situational, Lyrics were alright. Sudhir Palsane’s cinematography is attracting. Deepa Bhatia’s editing is okay. Production values were good.
Bright Spots: Lead Performances, Narration, First half, Cinematography
Bloopers: Thin Story, Slow 2nd Half, Lagging Drama
Survi Verdict: First half of the film is good, Second half is mediocre and climax is heart touching. On the whole, Ferrari ki Sawari a decent movie with a message. Worth a onetime watch, go for it…
Survi Review: 3/5
