‘Dangal’ fame director Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming film ‘Chhichhore’ starring Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput doesn’t seem very appealing the first trailer is long, and gives away the plot
After ‘Dangal’ everybody presumed Aamir Khan would once again team up with the very talented director Nitesh Tiwari.
Now we know why Aamir is not in Chhichhore. The film, as reflected in the lengthy and loquacious trailer, looks like the world Aamir, Madhavan, Sharman and Co inhabited in Hirani’s 3 Idiots. There is Sushant Singh Rajput, all ‘small-towned’ and hair-slickened with a vacuous grin arriving at the college hostel with dreams in his eyes and an itch in his pants. There is Varun Sharma, who for a change, seems the smarter among the two friends.
Sushant plays the wide-eyed ingénue to the hilt. When the girl on the campus Shraddha Kapoor, looking like a long-lost cousin of Ayesha Jhulka from Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and Kajol’s mooh-boli bahen in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, touches Sushant (most appropriately) he makes a noise like someone fingering a raw wound. Ouch!
These’re unknown actors playing eager novices in a campus filled with hilarious hopes and kooky aspirations, the kind we saw recently in that under-celebrated web series Kota Factory. More interesting than both Sushant and Varun is the gallery of unexposed faces playing the student fraternity. They all seem exceptionally talented. Lest we forget, director Nitesh Tiwari gave us talents like Zaira Wasim and Fatima Sana Shaikh in Dangal. Zaira has now quit. Fatima is trying to seek and find her level.
