Yawn Rok Sako To Rok Lo

Professor Arindam Choudhari's directorial debut Rok Sako To Rok Lo is Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander unspooled once again through the characters that are not only poorly conceived but also shoddily enacted.

Starring newcomers Yash Pandit , Manjari Phadnis , Carran Kapur and Sunny Deol , the movie is a campus caper with a predictable story about rivalry between two groups of students from different social and economic backgrounds.




Dev (Yash Pandit), Suhana (Manjari), Ganguly, Bhajji, Venky and Rati are close buddies studying together at Bharti School. They are often looked down upon and ridiculed by another group of rich lads - Ranveer (Carran Kapur) and his sycophant friends.

Ranveer is the undisputed champion from the Valley High School. He flaunts his money and excels over Dev and his friends in every which way.

Then enters into the story a Good Samaritan Kabir (Sunny Deol) who becomes an inspiration for Dev and his group. An inspired Dev readies for the ultimate test that will prove his capabilities and dismantle the egos of high flying Ranveer and his gang.

Hero Yash Pandit has a chocolate boy looks and cannot play a mature role. He doesn't have any screen presence either. Much better is Manjari who looks comfortable and plays her role with remarkable ease and conviction.

As for director Arindam Choudhari he is a respected man in academic fields (being a management guru, economist, and dean of the Indian Institute for Planning and Management), but he needs to be original in his films rather than simply ripping off an already successful youth film like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander.
