Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui

The story of Abhishek Kapoor, Supratik Sen and Tushar Paranjpe is progressive, refreshing and the need of the hour as it carries an important message home. Supratik Sen and Tushar Paranjpe’s screenplay is highly entertaining and commercial. However, the writing could have been stronger in the second half. Supratik Sen and Tushar Paranjpe’s dialogues are fine and there are laughs here and there. But almost every sentence had the opportunity to have some great punchlines. In this regard, the author missed the boat. However, some of the dialogues are sharp and Vaani Kapoor’s monologue at the interval point is worth clapping.

Abhishek Kapoor’s direction is neat. He approaches the film in a commercial manner and makes sure that though the subject matter is bold, the film is very mainstream. His execution is also surprising as it is unlike his previous films like Rock On [2008], Kai Po Che [2013], fitur [2016] and Kedarnath [2018], Some of the scenes are extraordinary, especially those dealing with Maanvi and her dilemma. Abhishek deserves congratulations as he handles it very sensitively and even defies stereotype. On the flipside, though the first half is excellent, the film falls a bit in the second half. After Manvi’s disclosure, it seemed that the writers did not understand what to do to maintain the interest. They influence the story with some interesting scenes but it is not as impressive as the scenes in the first part. Thankfully, the film picks up pace from the pre-climax.

Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is just 117 minutes long and introduces the characters quickly and neatly. The way romance blossoms between them is commendable. The romance scenes are intense, but not too bold. The scene in which Maanvi makes a big confession is arresting but even more impressive is the intermission. In the second half, it is the hospital sequence from where the film gets back on track. The climax is nail-biting and will be loved by the audience.

Movie Review Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui1

Ayushmann Khurrana is in excellent form as always. And this time too, he gives his character everything, including an impressive physical transformation. He is known to choose risky subjects and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is no exception. He deserves congratulations once again for stepping out of his comfort zone and playing a role that not many actors would have dared to accept. Vaani Kapoor is excellent and is sure to surprise the audience. It was a challenging part but he essayed it with perfection and most importantly with sensitivity. She also deserves praise for agreeing to do the role, which many actresses can’t even touch a barge pole. After this film, she will definitely be seen in a new light. Kanwaljit Singh (Brig Mohinder Brar) is lovely. Karishma Singh (Akshita; Maanvi’s friend) makes a big impression. Girish Dhamija and Anjan Srivastava are fine. Tanya Abrol is apt for the role while Sawan Rupawali has given competent support. Abhishek Bajaj and Satwant Kaur (Navjot Brar; Maanvi’s mother) are decent. Gautam Sharma (Jomo) and Gaurav Sharma (Riz) are fine as sidekicks of twin brothers cum Manu. Yograj Singh (Guruji) is average.

The music of Sachin-Jigar is scintillating. The title song, played in the end credits, is shot well. ‘Khich Te Nach’ Many are the best. ‘Kalle Kalle’ And ‘forgive’ are touching. ‘Tumbe Te Zumba’ is decent. ‘Attraction’ The lovemaking sequence is played out and again, well portrayed. Sachin-Jigar’s background score is apt.

Manoj Lobo’s cinematography is neat. Alan Amin and Vishal Bhargava’s action is realistic. Bindiya Chhabria’s production design is eye-catching. Shruti Kapoor and Akshay Tyagi’s costumes are glamorous. Chandan Arora’s editing is slick.

Overall, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui tackles a bold and taboo subject in a sensitive manner and is full of emotion. The stellar performances of Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor are like icing on the cake. Recommended!
