Promising theme but predictability takes the preference
13 November 2020 | by aarshadrameshSee all my reviews

Chhalaang is an attempt on the miserable yet reality of the sporting system prevalent in the country. It targets the frivolous nature of PT as a subject in schools with subtle yet powerful gender inequality still existing in society. Subject looks impressive and the hype it got before it's release sets the expecting sky high, something which it fails to live by. Hansal Mehta coming on the back of a blockbuster web series 'Scam 1992' somehow hasn't been able to make this as exciting. More often than not you might have deja vu with "Dangal" and "Chichhore". The predictably of the script adds to yet another reason for this not living up to expectations. In no way it's a bad movie, but definitely a good distance apart from a "WOW" movie. Absolutely a good watch for entertainment but don't keep very high expectations. Rajkumar Rao have life to Monty and was brilliant as always. Nushrratt finally got a more character oriented script and she has shown quality and real glimpses of her talent. The Hariyanvi accent was beautifully. Mohammad Ayyub and Saurab Shukla were terrific in their characters and deserve all the appreciation. The background score was pleasing. Overall a decent watch with a lot of gaps to be filled but a good entertaining 140mins
