They say that matches are made in heaven. This is one of those films where they are undone in heaven! But then again, that's the strange thing about love: just when the worst has happened, the best happens almost like the nightmare never took place, almost like love is undeniable, almost like love and hope are two faces of the same coin. Nandini (Gul Panag) fell in love once and then life happened--shattering every belief that she had about love. And then, just as she was ready to give up on love, she fell in love, all over again! Hysterical, intelligent, honest, Fatso is all about love packaged in with a calorie count! Written by
Rajat Kapoor's 'Fatso!' is an underrated romantic-comedy, that turns out to be nice fun! Its not perfect, but it has some great moments, that stay with you.
'Fatso!' Synopsis: Navin dies in an accident, but returns in a different avatar to woo his love.
'Fasto!' makes good use of its interesting premise, which is heavily inspired by the classics Heaven Can Wait & and Here Comes Mr. Jordan. Kapoor & Saurabh Shukla's Screenplay is capable, although the final 30-minutes are a bit underwhelming, as the pace drops. But otherwise, this romantic-comedy, scores higher on light moments. Kapoor's Direction is decent.
Performance-Wise: Ranvir Shorey is extraordinary in his portrayal of a Fatso. What a natural, nuanced performance from this supremely talented actor! Gul Panag looks gorgeous & delivers earnestly. Purab Kohli is likable. Neil Bhoopalam is superb. Gunjan Bakshi is okay. Brijendra Kala is fantastic. He steals all the scenes he appears in!
On the whole, 'Fatso!' needs to be watched for its fun elements & fine performances.
