Varun Dhawan starer ‘October’ movie review.
Let’s check out what the movie has to offer to the audiences.
Danesh Walia (Varun) happens to be a bratty yet adorable intern at a five-star hotel in the capital. Shiuli Iyer (Banita) happens to be his colleague over there. A life changing incident transforms the manner in which they take a look at each other. Furthermore, additionally how Dan starts to see life. This is the basic plot of the film.
Terming October as just a romantic tale will be unfair to its resilient handling. It can rather be called a fight, both with self and inter-personal. It’s not about rationale or insightful choices, it’s about how far would you be able to go for the things you believe in. It’s related to finding that one thing which characterizes us. It’s tied in with understanding that we’re more than just talking heads or moving robots.
In the wake of introducing us with the two protagonists and their group of companions, the film unpretentiously alludes to a chemistry between the calm, diligent Shiuli (name of a flower) and the bright Dan. Nothing is articulated, yet there is a trace of affection between the two who are poles apart in terms of their nature.
Juhi Chaturvedi’s writing readies the viewers for accepting Dan as he is. He has been sketched as a restless individual not that focused about his life goals all in all. He is of the silent types, yet is gradually moving nearer to detonating. He discusses feelings and what they intend to us past a point.
However, it’s not only Dan who suffers in silence. A large number of us have relatives and companions who have faced or are facing critical surgeries, and we find ourselves to be helpless in terms of what to do other than being hopeful. A discussion in the film about costs amid a medical crisis turns so genuine that it appears like a family discussion in its most prudent version. Is money the most serious issue in such circumstances? Or on the other hand, is there something more vital than this?
Shoojit Sircar (Vicky Donor, Piku fame) likewise guarantees that the audience comprehends the complex nature of unique medical cases. He designs an interface with the viewers and allows them absorb in the amount of persistence a few of us show in such conditions.
Shoojit can be called as a sensitive and accomplished storyteller who figures out how to get his viewers to engross totally in his film. Indeed, even this time around, it can be said to be the same case. His most loved writer Juhi Chaturvedi (Vicky Donor and Piku fame) can likewise be called a force to reckon with. She has written realistic lines and in the meantime, conveys enough punches to make you think and chuckle.
Avik Mukhopadhyay’s camera work appears A-class. Regardless of whether it’s the Delhi fog, autumn season greenery or the pollution, his camera catches each detail with so much affection.
As far as the performances go, Varun can be said to be the real find. This kid, who is frequently seen as the perfect successor for ala Salman Khan’s masala movies, demonstrates you how fit he is, for such roles. He showed us before in Badlapur, he does it over here as well. He makes you giggle, teary eyed and love him in an unconditional manner. What’s more, towards the end of the film, no wonder if you wish to take Dan home to meet your mother! Amongst his best acts till date, for sure.
He can be said to be perfectly supported by Geetanjali Rao and Banita Sandhu, who essays the role of Shiuli’s mom in the film. They all perform through their eyes and enter into our hearts.
So, if you are the one who doesn’t surrender to your life that easily, then this could be the one for you.
