Firangi Review & Rating
'Firangi' is the second feature film of comedian Kapil Sharma which also stars Ishita Dutta, Monica Gill, Kumud Mishra, Inaamulhaq, Rajesh Sharma and Maryam Zakaria. The film is a period piece that is set in the year 1920 of pre-independence India and tells the story of Manga (Kapil Sharma) falling in love with the character of Ishita Dutta, but her family does not agree with this relationship as Manga works for the British.
Kapil Sharma might be a good comedian but when it comes to serious acting, he fails miserably. Actresses Ishita Dutta and Monica GIll too fail to imnpress and talented actors like Rajesh Sharma and Kumud Mishra are given one dimensional roles with nothing to work with.
The script of the film is very weak and the story would not have been affected even if it took place in the modern times, so there was no need for the periodic costumes and sets. The film is also very long and tends to bore the audience at times but the good part of the film is its authentic set and costume design.
Verdict: 'Firangi' is not what it promises to be, its a story that has been told many a times just in a different era. The acting performances are also not up to the notch. This film can be missed.
Firangi Critic Reviews
Firangi User Reviews
Kapil Sharma has been boasting a lot about the film 'Firangi' and the trailer of the film seemed just okay to me as I couldn't expect a fresh story or decent comedy from what I saw in the trailer. Same is the case with the movie because it is the same old story of the 1940s which has been told a million times on screen. Kapil Sharma though manages to bring in a smile on your face few times. But I must confess, he seemed to be uncomfortable playing this role which doesn't have much scope for performance as well as comedy.
The first half an hour of the film is interesting as the story is nicely set up but the director loses grip from there on and picks up only during the climax. Firangi is a film which can be watched for the interesting premise and a few laughs.

The film based in the year 1920 in pre-independence India and tells the story Manga (Kapil Sharma) who believes that the British aren’t bad people and mean no harm. Manga eventually falls in love with a Punjabi girl (Ishita Dutta) who happens to be the granddaughter of a leader in the anti-British movement, which leads to a conflict.
What to expect?
- Kapil Sharma’s Comeback
Comedian Kapil Sharma has been out of the limelight for a while now. His last film was ‘Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karun’ and his tv show too has been off air for a few months, so his fans will be excited to see the comedian on the big screen.
- Periodic Costumes and Visuals
As the film is based in the year 1920, before India got independence from the British, the film will have costumes and visuals from that era.
- Great Performances
Apart from Kapil Sharma, the film also stars talented actors like Kumud Mishra, Rajesh Sharma and Inaamulhaq who have impressed audiences all over with their acting skills.
