Movie Review: Phillauri | Film Review of Phillauri – Bollywood News in Hindi

Horror genre films have been very popular in Bollywood. Horror films have been made over the years that followed the concept of friendly ghosts. Horror comedy has been seen in many popular movies like Karishma, Bhoothnath, Hello Brother. Phillauri, which released in theaters this week, follows the concept of a friendly ghost. Will this film be able to show its magic at the box office or will it ‘suddenly disappear’, let’s review.

Phillauri, a film by Fox Star Studios, is the story of an unfulfilled love of a ghost who cannot find peace even after death. The film begins with the dangerous (inflight) dream of Canada-based Kanan Rajinder (Suraj Sharma), who is on his way to India to marry his childhood sweetheart Anu (Mehreen Pirzada). After her arrival, Kanan’s parents tell Anu’s parents that Kanan is Manglik. Without any trouble and confusion, they consult an astrologer in this matter and then the astrologer advises them to get Kanan married to a tree to remove Mangal dosha. And after this Kanan gets married to a tree. During this time no one knows that while marrying the tree, she gets married to Shashi (Anushka Sharma), whose spirit has been residing on that tree since 1919. At first Kanan gets very scared of Shashi and his actions, but gradually they not only become friends of each other but he also introduces Shashi to Anu. When asked about the reason for the existence of Shashi’s ghost, she narrates her love story going into the past.

Is . Shashi mentions Roop Lal Phillauri (Diljit Dosanjh) while explaining his flashback. Shashi tells that her dream is still incomplete due to unforeseen situations and circumstances due to which she is wandering. What happened between Shashi and Roop Lal’s love in the villainous role, what happens to Shashi’s soul in the end and Kanan and Anu get married, all this will be known only after watching the rest of the film.

Despite having a huge potential concept, the film’s writer Anvita Dutt fails to create magic with her writing style. The story and screenplay of the film has no logic or direction. Apart from confusing, the script of the film also slows down the narrative. Phillauri, which begins with a positive and funny note, but seems drawn out and predictable afterwards. Thanks to the confusing script, the audience will find it very difficult to engage with the film. The film’s dialogues (Anivata Dutt) are clear and do not help in taking the film forward. There are some comic moments in the first half of the film but as the story of the film progresses, those too disappear.

Anshai Lal, who has worked as an assistant director in films like Pyaar Ke Side Effects, Chak De India, Dostana and Housefull, makes his directorial debut with Phillauri. Sadly, Anshai Lal fails to impress with his debut film Phillauri. Paralleling the story of two eras proves to be the biggest weakness of the film, due to which the original story of the film goes astray. He fails to tell any story well. While the first half of the film is witty (in some parts) and bearable, the second half of the film shows a woeful fall, which depicts Anushka Sharma’s life in the past.

is devoted . The slow and predictable second half does nothing more than test the patience of the audience. Even in the film, the story of two eras running together seems to be forcibly inserted. It can be said that the climax of the film is bizarre and shocking. If Anshai Lal wants to play a long innings in Bollywood, then he needs to learn how to tell the story.

Talking about the acting, the film’s lead actor Anushka Sharma has done the film very well. After her stellar performance in her last hit film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Anushka does a pretty decent job in Phillauri. Even though her character in the film seems a bit undercooked (due to the script), she still manages to pull it off perfectly. After a stellar performance in his previous film (drug drama Udta Punjab), Diljit Dosanjh shows his soft and critical side in Phillauri. Although his role in the film was less, but he looks good in that too. The one who suits the most in the film is Pyare Sooraj Sharma, who appeared in Hollywood movies like Life of Pi, Million Dollar Arm and many more. She made her Bollywood debut with Phillauri. He has played the character of a confused boy very beautifully in the film. Apart from this, he has also put a dash of humor in the film very well. On the other hand, Mehreen Pirzada disappoints with her Bollywood debut. The rest of the cast of the film suits their roles and plays their roles well.

The film’s music (Jasleen Royal) is average and fails to impress except one song ‘Sahiba’. On the other hand, the film’s background score (Sameer Uddin) is apt and lifts the story of the film. The VFX used in the film is good.

Full marks are given to the cinematographer of the film (Vishal Sinha) for the scintillating scenes in the film. The editor of the film (Rameshwar S Bhagat) has done a good job.

Overall, Phillauri fails to connect emotionally due to its weak and slow-paced story, the film will prove to be average at the box office.
