Review By : Movie Run Time : 2 hour 17 minutes Censor Rating : U/A 13+ Genre : Drama, Romance

Production: Bhusan Kumar Cast: Akshay Kumar, Dhanush, Sara Ali Khan Direction: Aanand L Rai Screenplay: Himanshu Sharma Story: Himanshu Sharma Music: A. R. Rahman Distribution: Disney+Hotstar

Atrangi Re is a film written by Himanshu Sharma and directed by Aanand L Rai. The film is bankrolled by Aanand L Rai, Himanshu Sharma, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar under the banners T - Series, Cape of Good Films, and Colour Yellow Productions. The film has Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush in the lead roles.

Dhanush plays the role of Vishu, a doctor who is on a trip to Bihar. On the other hand, there is Rinku (Sara Ali Khan) who elopes from her house for the nth time only to be caught by her family. They decide to marry her off to some random stranger. So they kidnap Vishu and forcefully marry them off. On the train journey to Delhi, both of them reveal about their respective lovers - Vishu is supposed to get engaged to his girlfriend in Chennai, and Rinku is deeply in love with Sajjad Ali Khan (Akshay Kumar), a magician. What happens next and how they resolve this problem forms the film.

There is a popular dialogue of Vadivelu which says, "Puyal vegathula poyitu iruken, kurukka edhuvum vandhura koodadhu", meaning I'm going at reckless speed, I hope no hurdle comes in front. This seems to be the mood in which the film was made, because both the director and writer have created a film where the scenes are either magical or look extremely weird and illogical. 

In the former, the film aims to be a fantasy drama and is fairly successful. For instance, there's the introduction of Rinku, where she is being chased by goons in cars. She ends up in a railway station and starts attacking them with soda bottles. She gets caught in the end, but doesn't give up. This stretch looks refreshing. But there's the other end of the spectrum. Vishu (Dhanush) has a girlfriend to whom he's getting engaged in a couple of days. Yet, when he is travelling with Rinku on the train, he develops feelings for her immediately, without a thought about his girlfriend. It's sequences like this where the film falters. 

Another issue with the film is it's casting of the leads, except Dhanush who is terrific and shoulders the film throughout. His antics and Tamil dialogues are a delight to watch. Sara Ali Khan's Bihari accent is inconsistent and needs more work. In a few scenes, she gets it right, but in others, it's a bit off. 

Akshay Kumar as Sara Ali Khan's love interest might have been an interesting idea on paper, but there's a clear lack of chemistry between them. More effort could have been put in on the make up department to make him more younger which could have made their romance believable. 

It would be a crime to dismiss this film entirely because of the work of music director AR Rahman and cinematographer Pankaj Kumar. Rahman uses his experience and gives us a stellar score combined with a soundtrack to remember. Especially Chaka Chak and Rait Zara Si are earworms. Pankaj Kumar's visuals have the same quality that we saw in Tummbad and this is a memorable outing for him. 

Aanand L Rai is a director who has given us a lot of progressive films in the past like Tanu Weds Manu. However, here that seems to be lacking. The film takes on a lot of issues but doesn't delve into any of them deeply. Apart from Dhanush and the technical quality, the film performs low on the other departments. But the positive elements are so good that it makes the film watchable. 


Verdict: AR Rahman, Dhanush shine in Atrangi Re, make it a watchable drama.
