Movie Review: Namaste England | Namaste England movie review – Bollywood News in Hindi

Time has changed, and now women’s empowerment is spreading rapidly and therefore it seems that by eradicating gender discrimination in every field, women and men should be given equal rights. But much still remains to be done in this matter. Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s film Namaste England, which released in theaters this week, portrays the same issue in a different way. Eight years ago, Vipul Amrutlal Shah with Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif brought Namastey London, which was well received by the audience, and the second film of the franchise with Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra, Namaste England. So will Namaste England prove to be successful even with its first film and will be able to entertain the audience? Or will it fail to make an impact, let’s review it.

The story of Namaste England is a story between a couple’s love and their dreams. Param (Arjun Kapoor) and Jasmeet (Parineeti Chopra) live in a small village in Punjab. When both of them meet each other, they fall in love with each other. Meanwhile, Jasmeet, who is very much interested in jewelery designing, gets a job in Amritsar. While Jasmeet’s grandfather (Shivendra Mahal) is strongly against women’s jobs. So Jasmeet hides about her job from them but one day the truth comes out. Just then, Param proposes marriage to Jasmeet and claims that he will allow her to work even after marriage. Param’s family goes to Jasmeet’s house with a marriage proposal. Jasmeet’s grandfather agrees but on one condition that Jasmeet will not work after marriage. Eventually both of them get married. A year later, Jasmeet meets her friend Harpreet (Mallika Dua). Harpreet lives a happy life with her husband in London. Seeing him, Jasmeet also feels that he too should leave India and settle in England so that he can do his job there freely. Param also agrees to accompany him. But now the problem arises, Param cannot leave India. After this, Jasmeet makes a plan that she will go to England alone and set everything up there, after that she will call Param with her. But after reaching there, something else becomes a story, for what this story becomes, you will have to watch the whole film.

Ritesh Shah and Suresh Nair’s story is very weak and silly which rests on a very nuanced story. There are many flaws in the story. Ritesh Shah and Suresh Nair’s script is very weak and nothing is done to hide these shortcomings. Surprisingly, the duo has given many good films in the past like- Airlift [2016], d-day [2013], Red [2018]handjob [2014] And even Namastey London and yet they collectively wrote such scripts. Ritesh Shah and Suresh Nair’s dialogues are very bad and old.

Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s direction is very poor and he seems to have lost his charm. Many scenes in the film start suddenly and end spontaneously, but he tries many times to make up for it. Furthermore, he tries to recreate the magic of Namaste London, be it at the turning point of the interval or the scene when Param gives a patriotic speech. While the letter scene of Namastey London is still memorable, the scene in Namaste England seems to be forced.

Namaste England has a strange start. The lovers are shown to be similar to each other during different seasons and it takes some time to understand. At this juncture, Param forces his friend to marry a girl from Jasmeet’s group so that he gets a chance to meet Jasmeet again and again. Seeing this scene, the audience understands that this film has no meaning of its own. Jasmeet’s grandfather does not like Jasmeet’s work even after marriage, but still works. But the scene that doesn’t work in this scene is Gurpreet’s drama at the wedding. Post-wedding, Param-Jasmeet’s romance turns cheesy and Gurnam’s (Satish Kaushik) scenes help maintain the interest though the film doesn’t satisfy from here either. The interval happens at quite a shocking juncture but not for the right reasons. The first half turns out to be disappointing while the film starts falling again after the interval. Param’s going to London in a wrong way keeps him tied up but that also doesn’t make any sense. The worse scene is Param pretending to marry Alisha (Alankrita Sahai). All these scenes are not only silly but also not funny. Also the film sends out the wrong message and tries to project that immigration is a bad idea and that is definitely not true. Also, the film ends at an abrupt point and all the struggles of the film do not end even when the credits begin to roll.

This is not Arjun Kapoor’s best act and his performance leaves a lot to be desired. He looks tired and overweight in some scenes. Though Parineeti chop. Da looks better and performs well. But alas, she loses out due to poor writing. Aditya gives a decent screen presence of Seal (Sam) and makes an impact. Alankrita Sahai (Alisha), who was seen in the recently released web film Love Per Square Foot, looks quite sizzling and suits her role. Satish Kaushik has been shown too much and he does not sound funny to say “darling” in every sentence. Same is the case with Shreya Mehta (Mithi) who makes a voice at the end of each sentence, like Nawazuddin Siddiqui kicks [2014] I did it! But she acts confident. Anil Mange (Iqbal Khan) is decent. Prateek Dixit (KG, UK born Indian origin man) is laughable. Mallika Dua is good and she is probably the only funny character in the film. Anjum Batra, Shivendra Mahal, Hobby Dhaliwal (Param’s father) and Vinod Nagpal (Sam’s grandfather) are good, while the actor who plays Harpreet is amazing.

Manan Shah’s music is fine with some songs while others disappoint. ‘Dhoom Dhadaka’ is very attractive and foot-twitch. ‘For you’ is fine after that. ‘Bhaare Bazaar’ doesn’t work well and it is suddenly cut in half. Prasad Sashte’s background score is dramatic. Yiannis Monolopoulos’ cinematography is appropriate but nothing special. Sriram Kannan Iyengar and Sujit Sawant’s production design looks superficial, especially in a Punjab village house. The costumes of Aki Narula, Sanjana Batra and Gayatri Thadani are not special initially but the costumes worn by Parineeti in the London scenes are attractive. Amitabh Shukla’s editing is bad.

Overall, Namaste England is a wasteful film and doesn’t win hearts due to a poor script and weak screenplay. The film will struggle a lot to garner the audience at the box office.
