Anurag Kashyap reviews Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani
Anurag Kashyap started off his review by being all praise for Karan Johar, he wrote, “Best @karanjohar film by far . He never leaves his world but he also does not hold back any punches . Also it’s the second KJo film that I bought the tickets for that too twice , and sending everyone that trusts me to go see . Some super writing , a top of form.”
Addressing the performances of the lead actors, he wrote, “@ranveersingh , ever so brilliant @aliaabhatt and there sparkling chemistry . After a long time I loved the dialogue writing in mainstream Hindi film where people talk like they talk .” He also appreciated the screenwriters, “Kudos to @ishita_moitra and @gogoroy .”
Revealing the favourite part of the film she shared, “My favourite part of the film is the incredible unrequited love story of @aapkadharam and @azmishabana18 and the patriarchal villainy of the matriarch @jayabachchn . Also not to forget @totaroychoudhury and @utterlychurni , @bashiraamir and the mother sister duo of Ranveer.. ( apologies for not knowing who they’re ).”
He further added, “The use of old classic songs and the trolling of @somenmishra with “meri pyaari bindu” .. uff that gave me so much personal joy.”
Anurag highlights the important parts of the film
The social message seems to be have really touched Anurag’s heart, he wrote, “Jokes apart – the way karan addresses all kinds of snobbery , all kinds of shame and phobias that come from our conditioning , the way he addresses our conditioning with all the humour and aplomb and joharisms.. was totally sucked in his world .. the high point of the film for me was @totaroychoudhury and @ranveersingh dancing to “Dola re Dola re”. And the whole monologue of Ranveer on how we cancel each other all the time or Alia’s rant post the Durga Pujo scene .. and @baidnitin .. you actually cut the songs halfway( or did karan shoot them only the amount that was required) .. that was also a first in a KJO film .”
“Thoroughly entertained and laughed and cried and believe it or not .. saw it twice .. the mainstream Hindi film I’ve been missing for so long .. the real @karanjohar that I know has fully put himself out there,” he concluded.
Anurag Kashyap’s review will certainly instigate you to watch the film. If you haven’t watched it yet, what are you waiting for? Watch now in your cinemas near by.
