Vicky Donor- A fine delivery of a healthy baby ;)
He doesn’t donate life saving blood, kidney or bone marrow; instead he gives
new life by donating sperms. A fresh story giving importance to the fact that
sperm donation is not an act to be ashamed of , its rather a noble act which can bring
happiness to so many parents devoid of kids!
The concept is presented in a
light breeze with out burdening you with heavy emotional drama! The entire
first half of the movie is filled with such quick comedy that makes you fall off your seat. Director Shoojit
writer Juhi Chaturvedi created a total comic drama which is also heart felt and
doesn’t lead to heavy bannered messages or
morals but just lets people know that sperm donation and infertility treatment
is not a crime. Anu kapoor lived up to the role and is back with a bang. I
must say the back bone of the movie and the promos showing him as a doctor
treating infertility were interesting enough to pull the audience to theatres.
The scene where he explains that Anshuman is Arya putr and keeps on nagging to
persuade him is ultra funny.Our hero is none other than RJ cum once upon a time
MTV roadie turned VJ / TV anchor
Ayushmann Khurrana. Not sure why two n’s and two r’s but who ever told his
prophecy must have been feeling good too as it worked well for him. I
personally always liked him whenever he anchored on TV for Wassup / India has
got talent etc etc. He even won an award for JUST DANCE show! He is extremely promising and being
a Punjabi he looked so damn natural in
the movie. Heroine Yami Gautam also seems talented and played the role
of a Bengali girl Ashima Roy. Both the lead actor and actress are budding
talents from Chandigarh. John Abraham being a producer is definitely a novelty
and an add-on to movie is his rum rum rum song. Am not
sure how much he succeeded as an actor but he must have been very glad by
taking a wise decision.
Anu kapoor is a witty and extremely funny doctor and he
addressing each person as “confused sperm” “Unpredictable sperm” leaves you
with wide smiles! Ayushmans mom and grand mom play equal roles in adding
entertainment. Theirs is a typical Punjabi family who love themselves more than
anyone else and the atmosphere in Dolly’s parlor and Ayushman assisting his mom
is all natural , the scene you come across in any North Indian(Punjabi) beauty
parlor! Dolly and her modern mother in law gulping down ‘n’ number of pegs to
forget their miseries is also fun to watch!! The first half of the movie leaves
you in splits. The highlight and heart of the movie is the wedding scene where
sophisticated, modern and calm Bengali Ashima marries Vicky Arora from a noisy
ruckus creating Punjabi family. The milaap is interesting with rum rum rum “whisky song” in the back ground and where two families gel well!
After Intermission the movie gets a bit slow
but as you are in full flow with the characters, story and quirky sensible
dialogues you don’t get bored. The movie doesn’t harass you with loads of tears
but even the slightest emotion shown in the movie gets heavy due to the humor
through out! Finally as the movie ends I dint like Anshuman and his stern face
and tears much, may be a fun frolic character all of a sudden shedding tears
was funny or rather he needs more practice. The
ending is good as they adopt a kid as Ashima can’t conceive but the only doubt I got here is can artificial insemination(with
Vicky’s sperm ofcourse) not happen in case of Ashima and cant she bear a baby
even if there is a pubic blockage?? Well
am not sure if pubic blockage is such a serious infertility problem. Lets
leave it to google and more analysis which I don’t want to do and spoil the
review. By the end of the movie the
immediate feeling I had is I wanna watch Anshuman again in a much more
entertaining movie with lots of freshness without being the sticky stereotype.
The lady Yami is pretty with beautiful eyes and smile and acts well too so you
can expect to see her around.
Theres no vulgarity or obscenity so you all can watch it
along with family and no need to worry a lot as these days high school kids
also know how to google and know much more than adults.
Kudos to shoojit and Juhi for showing this bold concept in a
My rating : 3.5 / 5
I love pani da rang sung by Ayushmann which makes it
more interesting, but I start tapping my feet for the below john’s song which is shown in the climax and made me sit till the titles end.
So folks enjoy this movie which can also be called an “Entertaining
