Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz Review & Rating|
From the director of National Award winning films like My Brother….Nikhil and I Am, comes a love story with a modern take on it. Onir has directed Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz which stars Zain Khan Durrani and Geetanjali Thapa in the lead roles. It is based in the modern era of social media and tells a story which utilizes the digital revolution to its advantage.
The film focuses on a young Radio Jockey in Kolkata named Abhimanyu (Zain Khan Durrani) who goes on the air by the name of Alfaaz. He is a poet who soothes people with his poetry on the radio and loves to be lonely. One day, he receives a missed call by mistake from Archana (Geetanjali Thapa), a free-spirited girl who has leukoderma. This missed call leads to countless conversations over the phone and social media, and they eventually fall in love with each other without seeing each other’s faces.
Zain Khan Durrani makes a commendable debut and fits perfectly in the role of a poet and an RJ. His character also has a dark past that prevents him from having a social life, but this fits in perfectly with the character of Archana, played wonderfully by Geetanjali Thapa, who is insecure because of her skin condition. The main focus of the film always remains on these two characters as they fall in love with each other through a series of Whatsapp forwards. Shray Rai Tiwari in the role of Archana’s best friend also does a good job with her role.
Abhishek Chatterjee has written the film and has managed to keep the story fresh despite having the clichéd romantic scenes here and there. There are a lot of elements we have seen before like the best friend in love or the taunting mother, but these characters do not distract the audience from the unusual love story that is the main plot of the film.
Onir has captured the essence of a love story perfectly and has given us the perfect movie for a date night. He also manages to create suspense when it comes to the dark past of the lead character and reveals it just at the right time. This also creates a sense of intrigue in the viewers and makes the film watching experience even better.
Verdict: Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz makes the perfect date movie and should not be missed.
