Mitron Movie Review: Brilliant music makes up for a paper-thin plot
Nitin Kakkar directed Mitron starring Jackky Bhagnani and Kritika Kamra which released on Friday did the exact opposite of 'flabbergasting the audience with a laughter riot', and while the rom-com tried convincingly hard to fabricate itself as a quintessential Bollywood comedy, it failed to register a thunderous jounce. The Telugu hit ‘Pelli Choopulu’ remake Mitron, is bagged with many loopholes in the yet skimpy plot.
Set in the backdrop of Gujarat’s Ahmedabad, the movie revolves around Jay (Jackky Bhagnani) and Avni(Kritika Kamra) who had to undergo parental torture. On one hand, Jay is a lazy laid-back person, often deemed as a loser, who simply wants easy money without even lifting a finger. Avni, on the other, is a passionate woman who wants to start her business but pried continuously as her parents want her to get married. The common grounds between the duo are the middle-class background and harrowing parents that want them to get married at the earliest. Jay’s best friends, Raunak (Pratik Gandhi) and Deepu (Shivam Parekh) stick with the duo while Jay and Avni start their own venture. Neeraj Sood plays a tormenting father and his struggle to fit in the role seems a bit over the edge.
Jackky took the role of Jay way too seriously that he lazed out on his own acting skills. Kritika looks beautiful and delivers an average performance as Avni. While the comedy in this rom-com failed to humour the audience with its laughter riot, the debutant Pratik Gandhi stands out with his witty comic lines.
The plot of the film is predictable and the interest starts draining slowly from the beginning. Stringed by the loose plot and few lame jokes here and there, the film fails to register the essence.
However, the soundtrack of film earned brilliant applauds. The recreation of Lata Mangeshkar’s 'Chalte Chalte' in Atif Aslam’s voice is beautiful. Gujarati blockbuster remixed into Bollywood groovy song by Darshan Rawal and Yo Yo Honey Singh’s 'This Party is Over Now' will certainly be a part of the season’s party anthem. The song that will get you goosebumps is Sonu Nigam voiced 'Door na Jaa' which is written by Kamil Sheikh. Well, kudos to the music team of Mitron!
