The Fukrey Movie Review

'Fukrey' is freaking good!
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 3/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Fukrey. Fukrey, in Delhi lingo, means good-for-nothing, penniless, miserly fellows with dreams as lofty as low are their lives. In that sense the title is pretty apt as the foursome of this Mrighdeep Singh Lamba directed film is bona fide Fukrey to their bones and marrow.

The good looking Hunny (Pulkit Samrat) and the unfortunately named Choocha (Varun Sharma) dream of entering a reputed college and woo the girls there. Their present reality however involves Hunny interpreting Choocha’s night dreams into a lottery number. The number clicks, the duo wins and the day goes by.

Lali (Manjot Singh) too dreams of entering the same college as his girlfriend studies there. But he’s stuck with a correspondence course. Zafar (Ali Fazal) is a struggling musician who hangs around the same college because his ex-girlfriend is an accounts teacher.

The quartet gang up and plan to make big money by betting big on the lottery number thrown by Choocha’s dream. Enters Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadda), who is anything but her first name. A pimp, drug dealer, and lady don, she gives them the money with the threat that if her moolah’s not returned she’s take it back from their pichwada.

Trouble starts when the four fukrey’s best laid plan goes haywire and they are left running pillar to post saving their skin not just from the dreaded Bholi Punjaban but also from the cops.

The fun in Fukrey ranges from chuckle-worthy oneliners to the uproarious antics of the foursome to save their arses from being thwacked by the spitfire Punjaban. The humour is eccentric, implied, subdued, and at times, outright bawdy. Yet, Fukrey never evolves into a crackerjack of a comedy. At best, it’s decently funny and worth a watch for the camaraderie of the four leading characters.

Pulkit Samrat as the smart Hunny, Varun Sharma as the bumbling Choocha and Manjot Singh as the laidback Lali are a riot together. Ali Fazal as the quiet and lovelorn Zafar mostly keeps to the shadows. Richa Chadda is loud and doesn’t really pass off as a don to be dreaded.

Fukrey also boasts of some interesting side characters. Pankaj Tripathi as the ‘Jugaad Baaz’ college watchman who squeezes an English word in the edgeways of his UP boli, is a treat to watch. Vishakha Singh as the accounts teacher is creditable despite having a few scenes. Priya Anand does well in the brief role she has.

The strength of Fukrey lies in its writing by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and Vipul Vig. Though the film largely remains a sophomoric directorial attempt, it’s the characters and their wackiness that sticks with you.

Eminently watchable, but a tad stretched in the second half.

Rating: ***
