Childhood has always been the best part of everyone’s life but what’s sweeter about this experience is the memories we make. However, there is one more aspect of this life – the teachers.
Dipped in an ocean of such memories and experiences, I had the pleasure to watch the latest release on Amazon Prime – Chhalaang. Powered by a streamlined story and the acting skills of Nushrat Bharucha, Rajkummar Rao, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, this flick is the “Teacher of the year” version of “Student of The Year.”
Did I leap over happiness with Chhalaang?
If I were to answer this question in one word, then yes is my answer but the more important thing here is how this leap happened. Well, this Chhalaang Review is all about it only.
Set in Haryana’s small town, this Amazon Prime movie is a sweet and simple story of how a school teacher found its way in life while trying to impress a fellow teacher. Focussed on bringing love and career together, this movie is a watchable family comedy.
Enveloped in a simple script, Chhalaang holds the high ground when it comes to dialogues. From keeping the lines right in every situation to giving the female character the best lines ever, I would like to point out the writer’s commendable work.
Coming to the acting of the lead cast, no questions come to my mind. But since this movie came alongside Raj Kummar’s Ludo, comparison to banta hai!
And honestly, Raj has done a much better job in Ludo. Although the actor’s acting skills stand unquestionable in both the movies, it’s the creativity in playing the character that brings Ludo first.
Moving ahead in the Chhalaang Review, I would like to give a big round of applause to all the singers, especially Daler Mehndi ji, for singing a compelling title track – Le Chhalaang.
Amazon Prime’s latest, Chhalaang, comes with an adequate amount of comedy, drama, and message. For instance, that one incident where Raj Kummar Rao’s character tries to harass the lovers in the park gets schooled back. Such incidents have been shown many times in the movie, but they’ve been liked only a handful of times.
Why did I rate Chhalaang at three stars?
Honestly, I wanted to give more than three stars, but I have quite a few reasons –
- The movie may have a unique approach, but the story isn’t. We have seen the same kind in Chhichhore and Student of the Year. Okay, not exactly the same, but you get the idea, right!
- Next, the movie is released when Raj Kummar Rao has already given us the treat via Ludo; hence, seeing him again in a completely different tone kind of killed the buzz.
- The movie had a very predictable ending, but that doesn’t mean it should not be watched. What I mean is a twist, in the end, could have made this journey a bit more exciting.
So, are you ready to take the Chhalaang?
In my opinion, you should. Not for any reason but to have that quality time with your family. And if you are about to start your movie-watching spree, I suggest you go first with Chhalaang then Ludo but skip Laxmii.
