Storyline

College. Three of the most important years of your life. Three years of studies (at times) and sheer indulgence. Indulgence in all the little pleasures that a carefree life has to offer. But it isn't always about ragging, fuchacha parties, college fests, races, and churning out ways to whack some extra pocket money from your parents. It's sometimes hard, ugly, and complicated. More so, when you really need to get admission in the coolest college in town and you know you don't deserve it. And to top that, you get yourself involved in the most bizarre stations that could crack you into pieces before you could crack it. Written by Excel Entertainment

It has a few weak points but who cares when the film keeps you entertained throughout, so go for it.
1 July 2013 | by bobbysingSee all my reviews

To be honest, this is a wicked kind of film which has an almost non- sense storyline without anything great to reveal and many objectionable insertions in the script too, wrongly representing the younger brigade of the country in a debatable manner. But still it somehow manages to keep you entertained throughout with its shining performances, witty dialogues and hilarious sequences taken straight from the real life which collectively turn it into a winner in the end and you forget about anything else to put the objection for.

Talking about the negative points of the film first, FUKREY has a wafer thin plot as far as the script is concerned and that too, a highly unconvincing one where everyone is just chasing a weird dream of a chubby boy giving them a winning lottery number every morning. Further its weak plot has been stretched too long just to add more amusing scenes in the narration which drops the pace post intermission and then it also ends on a very uninspiring note.

Anyhow the good news is that the merits of the film score way above its weaker points and that is why you cannot condemn the film just for the sake of doing it. Therefore if one is willing to ignore all these preventable flaws, then FUKREY is truly capable of giving you a lot more than expected and you are sure going to enjoy watching it in the theaters along with your school or college group without any doubt.

Mentioning the strong plus points of FUKREY, first of all I was frankly quite surprised to realize that this was from the same director, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, who earlier gave us a complete non-performer film called TEEN THAY BHAI. Secondly, from the last 5-6 years, Bollywood directors seem to be in complete love with DELHI, its popular lingo used in the small localities and Punjabish style of living, famous all over. Working on the similar lines, FUKREY also makes a noticeable use of the same ambiance and thus has a good share of Punjabi abuses too in its funny dialogues.

In short, the writing here is the biggest strength of the film with real life instances used exactly like we all see in the school & college campuses in Delhi. For example it's a blunt truth that there is a cruel discrimination practiced among the regular and correspondence students in Delhi University from decades. Similarly, almost all the colleges have a strong character of a gatekeeper who doesn't let others come into the premises and is supposed to have a good power on your right to enter through that gate as per his will. Besides, many well conceived sequences are also a sure shot winner in the film (especially for the residents of Delhi & NCR),which include the one featuring the legendary Narender Chanchal's famous tracks being sung in a Jagaran and Manjot's repeated scenes with a dirty beggar. But apart from this flawless realistic writing, FUKREY also shapes up well due to its perfect casting, instantly winning your hearts with their respective acts.

In totality, the film belongs to three boys Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh and Richa Chaddha alone, who carry the film on their shoulders right till the end and rarely give you some dull moments only in the second half. Where the viewers are simply going to love Varun posing as CHOOCHA, they are immensely going to enjoy watching Pulkit & Manjot together as the ring leaders. Particularly FUKREY should ideally become the much needed jumping board for Pulkit, after his last year's average flick BITTOO BOSS, whereas Manjot is going to find it too hard coming out of his fixed image of doing similar roles, one after another since OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE (2008). However a related truth remains that despite doing all similar kind of acts, Manjot still very gently manages to make his own mark and doesn't seem to be repetitive. On the other hand, Ali Faizal is the weakest link in the team but then he couldn't do much, since his character was specifically written in that form only in the script.

Post intermission, the film gets a new life with Richa Chaddha entering as "Bholi Punjaban" which actually hides it major flaw of having no interesting storyline smartly. Richa works real hard to be terrific in her 'out of the box' character and she also succeeds in her attempt largely. But still her portrayal remains uneven in the various scenes and also I didn't find any Punjabi dialogues spoken by a character given the name of "Bholi Punjaban". Playing the love interests, Priya Anand looks gorgeous in all her lovable scenes along with Pulkit and Vishakha impresses a lot as the Accounts teacher. Last but not the least, Pankaj Tripathi plays the gatekeeper's role just brilliantly and holds them all together before intermission.

Musically, Ram Sampat composes some good tracks which have been used very intelligently in the film and you don't mind watching them played in their shorter versions like "Ambarsariya" . Yet songs do add to the unnecessary length of the film which should have been avoided to keep it more focused and sharp. Background score maintains the uplifting tempo rightly and DOP captures the essence of Delhi lanes well.

In all, FUKREY is a young film with a sole motive of offering the viewers a good time in the theater along with their friends and its great to see such kind of 'Star-less' initiatives backed by reputed production houses like Excel. The film does have its weak points but they all take a back seat when it keeps providing the much needed entertainment factor right till the climax in a continuous mode. Yes with a healthier storyline it could have been much better but nevertheless is quite enjoyable in its present form too, so go for it and Enjoy!
