“Chhichhore” Movie Review: Appealing Cast & Deft Direction Deliver The Goods

Mohnish Singh |Sep 06, 2019

“Chhichhore” is directed by Nitesh Tiwari who shot to fame after the humongous success of Aamir Khan’s sports drama “Dangal”. His latest film stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles.

Chhichhore is a college-caper, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. After Dharma Productions’ Student of the Year (2012), we have hardly seen a film which has done full justice to this genre which is often ignored in Bollywood these days.

Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, who returns to direction after helming Dangal in 2016, has attempted to weave his new film Chhichhore around the same theme. Let us find out whether or not Chhichhore lives up to the expectations of the audience.

What Chhichhore Is All About?

Annirudh (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Maya (Shraddha Kapoor) have ended their marriage a couple of years ago. But an untoward circumstance involving their son reunites them with their college friends in a hospital. This gives them an opportunity to recollect and relive their old college memories.

They recall the days spent together almost 20 years ago and tell stories of their eventful college life to the kid, hoping it will help him recuperate soon. The group of friends take a trip down memory lane and narrates to the son of Maya and Annirudh about their colourful college life. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

What’s Hot?

Chhichhore is a brilliantly written film which offers oodles of comic moments throughout its runtime. You may find some of the jokes and one-liners stale, but they go so well with the flow of the film that you hardly complain. There are some moments where it becomes extremely hard to keep your eyes from welling up. The entire writing team deserves distinction marks for penning down a story which warms the cockles of one’s heart so effortlessly.

The film boasts of an impressive star cast that includes the likes of Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Sharma, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Naveen Polishetty, Tushar Pandey and Saharsh Shukla.

Besides the taut writing, powerful performances from each and every cast member make Chhichhore an unforgettable experience. Amongst all, Sushant, Shraddha and Varun stand out. Their characters are beautifully written and stay with you even after you are done with the film.

Director Nitesh Tiwari, who became a force to reckon with after the huge success of Dangal, proves his directorial mettle once again. He places heavy demands on his lead actors and makes sure he and his actors deliver the goods.

Music by renowned composer Pritam is another highlight of the film and so is background score by Sameer Uddin. It blends beautifully with the narrative. Songs like Fikar Not and Khariyat stand out.

What’s Not?

Though Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor do well individually, the same cannot be said about the scenes where the two share the screen space together. There is something missing in their chemistry and their romantic scenes lack spark. Another issue that sticks out like a sore thumb is the excessive use of prosthetic makeup to show the characters ageing. It just does not look convincing. A better makeup team was required to do the job.

Final Verdict

With a perfect blend of comedy, friendship and emotions, Chhichhore is one of the best films of 2019 that takes you on a nostalgic ride. Powered by the competent direction of Nitesh Tiwari and superlative performance from Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Sharma, this is a film that should not be missed at any cost. I am going with 3.5 stars.
