Karwaan Movie Review
Karwaan is a Bollywood comedy drama film directed by Akarsh Khurana and produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Priti Rathi Gupta. Film stars Dulquer Salmaan, who is making his debut in the Hindi film industry with this film, along with Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar.
Dulquer’s father die in a road accident and his body is transported to Dulquer’s place. But unfortunately, the coffin is sent to different address and the confusions begin. How Dulquer resolves this problem with the help of Irrfan forms the remaining story.
Dulquer Salman’s performance is subtle suiting perfectly to his calm and composed character. Irrfan is impressive as usual with his natural acting and he gets a comical carefree role to play. New gal Mithila Palkar does good justice her job, she played nicely according to her jovial behaviour. Kriti Karbanda’s cameo scene is nostalgic, but only to Dulquer Salman.
Bejoy Nambiar’s storyline is very thin and there is absolutely no spice to elevate the flow, the movie almost gets over during the interval time itself. Akarsh Khurana’s screenplay is atrociously sluggish and latter half tests the patience level to huge extent, the new happenings are either unwanted or boring to sit through. Hussain Dalal’s dialogues are decent and ones to Irrfan were enjoyable irrespective of the situation. Direction is convincing as the feel stays subtle.
Background score is goes well with the flow at most of the portions. Avinash Arun’s camera work is beautiful and the visuals look so cool. Ajay Sharma’s editing dips down the engagement factor, blame points out the director too for dragging things too much which passes beyond the patience level.
The movie’s target is so confusing, for sometime it feels like a Malayalam movie and in some places it gives an Hindi movie feel, overall it was monotonous to witness the progression. Surrounding the death situation, nowhere the film takes us to a serious state and the emotions fail to carry as well. End credit portion was meaningful.
Lead artists shine in this subtle drama that is dragged extensively with plenty of irrelevant sub-plots
