KAI PO CHE! (2013)




Director:
Abhishek Kapoor

Writer:
Abhishek Kapoor
Chetan Bhagat

Starring:
Raj Kumar Yadav
Amit Sadh
Sushant Singh Rajput and others

Kai Po Che! is definitely the best movie of this year. The movie is based on Chetan Bhagat's bestseller 3 Mistakes Of My Life. Well firstly I would like to say that I thought this book would have made a drab, boring movie but I was proved wrong by Mr. Kapoor. The cinematography of this movie is one of the best ever. The screenplay steers clear of cliches and ridiculous dialogues, which is a refreshing change. Abhishek Kapoor delivers the second best directed movies of all times (only behind Rang De Basanti). This movie seems so close to his heart, that each reel oozes love, dedication and exceptional vision.

The performances of the leads are very good. The most convincing of the lot is Raj Kumar Yadav as Govind, a smart calculating guy, who is not the biggest fan of taking risks. In one particularly stunning scene his usual calm demeanor is replaced by raw rage. Debutants Amit Sadh (Omi) and Sushant Singh Rajput (Ishan) are also impressive (Sushant being slightly better). Amrita Puri is charming and her romance with Govind is sweet and well crafted. This movie is a masterpiece, don't miss it.
