The Jailer signed the release papers in the detention center and his friend was waiting to welcome him to the new but geriatric world of “innocent” people. A very veteran and common start for a movie from the makers of Rock-on! However, like me, most of the audience was not ready to judge the book by its cover. Kai Po Che by director Abhishek Kapoor is a sensible entertainer contrasting the likes of Zila Gaziabad and mindless films like them. Based on Chetan Bhagat’s best-selling novel 3 Mistakes of my Life, the movie has evoked certain basic human traits which have actually appealed to a huge number of audiences, teenagers being predominantly huge in the track.
Friendship, love and drama are some of the major Indian cinematic elements, which if missed will make the film a sure flop show! Verisimilitude was the catch line of the movie Kai Po Che. Raj Kumar Yadav, Sushant Singh Rajput and debutant Omkar Shastri played Govind, Ishan and Omi respectively. Three best friends, with very different perspective of life yet glued in the bond of friendship portrayed the unsaid essence of companionship. The film and the novel, both are characterised on a very Indian, rather Gujrati background which eventually let the audience connect to the theme of the reel very easily. The Bhuj earthquakes, Hindu-Muslim riots, death of Ishan, were some of the major cinematic turns which made the movie spicy.
Overall, everything is there in Kai Po Che that a bollywood-movie audience can expect. High credits go to the cast and crew whose
dedication and endeavor was very evident throughout the movie. The sweet and complete love story between student and the teacher must have been enjoyed by one and all. So do not let this semester go without watching Kai Po Che or else it would be just another mistake of your life! A relief from the general mindless movies produced in India! Hope our audiences stop yawning!!!
My Rating: 8/10.
