Chhichhore (2019): Film Review
Chhichhore doesn’t impress much with their subject of hostel life, though the topic was .very important and relevant to all parents and students.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, chhichhore is meant to be a comedy film which runs in the flashback through story telling by friends of hostel life. Sushant Singh Rajput is lively in the movie in his student avatar. But as a father it fails to impress. Shraddha Kapoor seems to be just in the film without anything to do much. The hostel friends have played their part very well. The hostel life portrayed on screen gives a freshness to the movie and keep the audience in the cinema hall.
Some of the scenes are very enjoyable like the events leading to weightlifting sports competition. The flow of the movie is good for the scenes in hostel life, though it drags otherwise. The music score and songs (by Pritam and Sameer Uddin) are not very impressive. However, the Director keeps the mystery alive till last which is a top USP of the movie.
As a word of caution, the parents may be emberassed if watching with their teen kids due to use of double meaning words and suggestive words frequently used in the movie. Still, it’s a watch for grown ups for nostalgic feeling and to understand that life is more important than marks and targets.
