Firangi movie review - Kapil Sharma


Firangi review: The trouble with this mildly engaging film, with a solid supporting cast, is that it is far too long. Kapil Sharma is serviceable as a young Punjabi munda, making eyes at a blushing Sargi (Ishita Dutta). - Firangi movie cast: Kapil Sharma, Ishita Dutta, Monica Gill Firangi movie director: Rajiev Dhingra Firangi movie rating: 2 stars Last seen on the big screen, Kapil Sharma was playing footsie with multiple women, in what was an alleged sex comedy. This time around, he takes himself off to the past, at a time when India was under the British, with wily rajas trying to wriggle out of paying tax, and a bunch of villagers trying to outsmart the ‘goras’. Yes, you saw this in Lagaan. In this redux version, Sharma plays Manga, a jobless fellow with a disarming smile, who is good pals with a bright-eyed ‘tange-wala’ (Inamulhaq), romances a blushing ‘gaon ki gori’, and, yes, beats the evil guys at their own game. The trouble with this mildly engaging film, with a solid supporting cast, is that it is far too long. Sharma is serviceable as a young Punjabi munda, making eyes at a blushing Sargi (Dutta).

The setting, meant to be the 1920s, is all created on set, but you do initially manage to ignore the carefully crafted mud huts, because the language spoken is real, the gidda is homespun; as are the costumes. The greedy whitey (Sonnenblick) is not half bad, even if he sounds more American than Brit, and there’s some fun to be had with Mishra camping it up as the local ruler with a large harem, and a haughty daughter who claims she went to Oxford, no less. But it goes on and on. And on. Post interval, it slows down and begins to grate, even when the in-awe-of-the-‘firangi’-hero comes to his own proud ‘desi’ roots.
