Movie Review : Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene (2015)
In a world that is driven by greed, money and selfishness, while the rich manage to live like kings, it's only the middle class and the lower middle class who whip themselves every day to work to earn their hard earned money. And sometimes it becomes very difficult for such people to survive the temptation of a sudden windfall, especially when they are in dire need of the same.
This week's release SHARAFAT GAYI TEL LENE also features a similar story. Will its director Gurmmeet Singh manage to capture the real essence of the human mentality and do justice to the same? Let's analyze.
The movie starts off with Prithvi Khuranna (Zayed Khan), a middle class working professional, who has to work in order to survive in the city and also to pay the landlord's rent plus other 'unavoidable' expenses. He is someone who silently sympathises with his own self every time he sees the 'balance' on the ATM's slip, each time he withdraws money. No wonder then, his entire life comes to standstill, when, one day he discovers that his account has been credited with a whopping 100 crores! Finding it hard to believe, he calls up the bank's customer care. And when he hears that his account has been upgraded into a 'platinum class', he becomes stunned with the windfall that had just hit him. Even before the news can sink in his system, he gets a call from an 'unknown number' with caller claiming that his name is 'Dawood'. The mere name is reason enough for Prithvi to have a nervous breakdown. Dawood then, 'orders' Prithvi to get into a mutually profitable deal with him, the details of which will be told to him from time to time. Prithvi immediately calls up his roommate Sam (Ranvijay Singh) who thrives on women and money (easy money, to be precise), to share the news with him. Just when the duo is busy planning as to what to do with the whopping amount, the bank's Vice President D.K. Thawani (Anupam Kher) lands up at his doorstep to offer his personalised service to his 'esteemed customer'. All of this startles Prithvi to no end. Seeing Prithvi behave 'abnormally', his ever-so-concerned girlfriend Megha (Tena Desae), who is a TV journalist by profession, immediately calls her top-cop uncle G.S. Chaddha, who then, starts tracking Prithvi's phone calls. Prithvi's confidence levels take a U-turn when he discovers that D.K. Thawani is actually Dawood's man in disguise of a bank manager. Just as when things are getting settled down, life again takes a U-turn for Prithvi when he hears the breaking news about Dawood's sudden death on TV channels. Needless to say that, Dawood's death only means that Prithvi becomes the sole owner of the whopping amount that lies in his bank account.
Does the simple and hardworking man Prithvi say good bye to 'sharafat' and keep Dawood's money, does the police succeed in tracking the real owner of the staggering amount, what happens to D.K. Thawani post the death of Dawood and does Prithvi ever get to know as to who 'Dawood' is and the reason behind him depositing such a staggering amount in his account...is what which forms the rest of the film.
Even though the film's director Gurmmeet Singh has tried his level best to weave a story spanning the life of a middle class working professional, the essence of the same still seems to be lost in transit. The medium paced first half of the film is followed by the fast moving second half which also provides fodder to many an unearthing. Gurmmeet could have tightened the directorial noose a bit more than the existing (esp. in the climax, when the plot's secret is revealed). This definitely could have added spice to the drama.
Of the cast, Zayed Khan may not have delivered a path breaking performance in the film but he definitely charms his way with an endearing performance. Tena Desae (whose last commercial film was about a couple of years ago Table No. 21) is her usual self. Rannvijay Singh offers his able support to the otherwise average film. Anupam Kher does apt justice to his character. The rest of the characters carry the film forward.
One really wonders as to what was the requirement to have multiple music directors (Dhruv Dhalla, Sandeep Chatterjee, Meet Bros Anjjan, Faridkot Band) when the overall music is just about average. There are hardly any hummable tracks that you can take home with you. The film's storyline (Rajesh Chawla) could have been made more believable. There is hardly any choreography (Ganesh Hegde) in the film. Had the film's editing (Meghna Manchanda Sen) been a bit more tight, it could have saved the film from going astray at handful of places. While the film's screenplay and dialogues (Rajesh Chawla, Gurmmeet Singh) are strictly average.
On the whole, SHARAFAT GAYI TEL LENE is a strictly average film.
