This one’s no campus-rumpus or high-school pump-ups – with designer gals, prom nights, tight jeans and fancy dreams. In fact, the four young protagonists stay pretty much out-of-class, out-of-money and out of ladki-luck too. Introducing the faltu foursome. Hunny (Pulkit) is the one blessed with some grey matter (never mind that he failed the first grade, and twice after). Choocha (Varun), is blessed with sona and sapna (these aren’t his women). He sees weird dreams that only buddy Hunny can decode, so they crack a lottery number and win a jackpot (sone pe suhaga!). Lali (Manjot) comes with a big-heart `and a riotous sardar-sense-of-humour. The boys have a simple dream – to get a backdoor entry into one of the coolest colleges (with the hottest chicks) in Delhi. The fourth, Zafar (Ali) is an aspiring musician, with nothing but a G-string (read: guitar) and three loser boys for hope. Enter, the boisterous Bholi Punjaban (Richa) with nothing holy or bholi about her, really. She pimps, sells drugs and spews gaalis (maa, behen et al) galore. Bholi invests in the ‘smart sapna scheme’, but all goes kaput and the boys wake up to insanity and reality.
Manjot’s knack for poker-faced comedy is commendable. Debutant Varun is a surprise package; he steals the show with his spontaneity and uproarious antics. Pulkit pulls off the smart-ass act with confidence, Ali stays sober throughout. Richa is feisty and fires gallons of gaalis with aplomb. Priya and Vishaka breeze through their bits.
Mrighdeep infuses comedy throughout, subtle and fresh. The humour is finely spun in the writing and dialogues (Mrighdeep, Vipul Vig). There’s levity in the language and some hilarious moments. The first-half is slow-paced, but it rips riot soon. The story has newness, but at times it lacks the chaotic craziness that such a comic premise can unfold.
Yet, the laughs are many to keep you entertained. So what the ‘fuk-rey‘, go, crack up on your seats.
