Batti Gul Meter Chalu Review
Director Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu (BGMC) is a film that talks a couple of terribly pertinent issue and a fundamental right that is commonly denied to common masses at various parts of our country. The film has it’s own flaws however. The film required a tighter piece of writing effort and a better editing work, as the story becomes overbearing after interval.
The film holds up a powerful and blistering mirror to corruption and everything that's wrong with companies and their governance. it's a story that must be told, doubtless, however the runtime simply robs the film of its impact.
The story kicks off within the hills of Uttarakhand, wherever SK (Shahid Kapoor), a lawyer by profession makes a living by blackmailing native businessmen who are indulged in malpractices. Nauti (Shraddha Kapoor) is a fashion designer and has her own boutique store whereas Tripathi wants to begin his own business. The common grouse within the city is that the failing electrical grid, that is just about their method of life. Shree Narayan Singh has once again created the magic of Ek Prem Katha. The film has its special moments, just like the camaraderie between the buddies; however the Screenplay by Siddharth-Garima spends an excessive amount of time establishing their interpersonal relationships that slacken the narrative. The film picks up pace once Tripathi’s business dream is broken ,as a corrupt Power corporation sends him a large bill. It is then, that the drama extremely kicks in.
The half of BGMC (Batti Gul meter chalu) unfolds within the court, as Shahid Kapoor’s SK launches attack on the corrupt power corporation. This phase of the film serves up heightened drama and in an exceedingly sense, salvages the film’s dodgy half. Shahid’s character’s transformation extremely works in favour of the actor. Once his SK becomes the honest professional person with a mission, Shahid is able to blend a fine balance between the over-confident young man and also the guy with a heart of gold. His monologue throughout the climax is great. Shraddha Kapoor plays the lively small town woman with panache. Divyendu shows restraint in the good guy role. Yami Gautam seems as a lawyer, only in the second half of the film, however doesn’t leave abundant of an effect.
With a tighter runtime and a lot of target the crux of the story, this social drama had the potential to shine bright. The motion-picture photography by Anshuman Mahaley manages to capture the wonder of Uttarakhand’s hills alright. The film additionally contains a parallel track of 2 characters named Vikas and Kalyan, narrating the story; however the figure doesn’t quite click. BGMC (Batti Gul meter chalu)loses power beneath the load of its heavy-dutyscreenplay.
