YouTube comes to your respite when two months of the year pass and there is hardly any movie release that pulls you to the theatre! Finally got to watch Vicky Donor after years of its release and thoroughly enjoyed the ride, barring the final 20 minutes (which I thought did not gel with the tone of rest of the movie)! The strongest character of the movie for me was the city of Delhi that gets beautifully captured through its people, lanes and bylanes and the tonality of people from Lajpat Nagar to CR Park! The Delhi of Vicky and Ashima is presented as authentic as it was for the Kholsa’s by Dibakar Banerjee, or for Shruti and Bittu of Band Baja.. in the previous years! Shoojit Sircar has done this again in Piku with both Delhi and Kolkata, and we can see where the experience comes from.. Ayushman Khurana gets his Vicky totally right with a genuine honesty about what he stands for, with Dolly Aluwalia and Kamlesh Gill doing brilliant jobs as the old ladies of his life! Yami Gautam is decent enough as the CR Park bong, other than the emotional scenes where she falters! But the kingpin for me in this very relevant movie was Annu Kapoor as Dr. Chaddha who just rises above everyone else including Vicky! This movie again reconfirms that he is severely underutilised in Bollywood.. Finally – Thank you Shoojit Sircar and Juhi Chaturvedi for such relevant content and brilliant writing! Its not easy in the Bollywood context to tell a story on sperm donation, and make it so witty, humerous and crisp to go with it! I perfectly enjoyed my two hours of chuckling
