“Motichoor Chaknachoor” features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty in principal characters. The film is filled with several warm moments.

After facing a lot of issues, Motichoor Chaknachoor is finally in theatres. Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty in lead roles, the movie is set in Bhopal. Films based in North India have been attracting a lot of eyeballs lately. Will Motichoor Chaknachoor manage to do the same. Let us find out.

Story: After rejecting several prospective grooms arranged by her parents, Annie (Athiya Shetty) decides she will only marry an NRI. She did not have to go far to find a suitable match for her as her neighbour Pushpinder Tyagi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) matches her criteria. 36-year-old Tyagi works in Dubai and is still bachelor. He has been on the lookout for a bride and finally, one day, he visits Annie’s family with his marriage proposal. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Critical Analysis: Motichoor Chaknachoor is a formulaic romantic comedy. It starts off on a great note. However, as the narrative progresses, it begins to follow the same set pattern of the genre that we have been watching in Hindi film for the longest time. You do not find anything extraordinary here.

Athiya Shetty and Nawazuddin Siddiqui do offer some really funny moments. Nawaz, as expected, delivers a brilliant performance, while Athiya also makes a sincere effort. She is really good in some of the scenes. The supporting cast adds to the humour further. Karuna Pandey as the aunt and Vibha Chibber as the mother make an impact. Filled with some funny dialogues, the small-town setting and some quirky characters, Motichoor Chaknachoor does entertain you, but only in bits and parts.

The biggest problem with the film, however, is its length. With a runtime of 2 hours 30 minutes, Motichoor Chaknachoor seems insufferably long. Debutant filmmaker Debmitra Biswal makes an honest attempt to keep you engaged and invested, but soon the humour dries and you start waiting for the movie to end. Better editing could have definitely saved the film.

Final Verdict: Motichoor Chaknachoor is a sweet film which had scope to be a lot better. However, you can still watch it for engaging performances from Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty. I am going with 3 stars.
