FryDay Review: A roller-coaster comic ride with legend Govinda and Varun Sharma
As we all know the living legend Govinda is looking to re-awake his place in our hearts once again, especially the next-gen youth who only gets to watch his previous works on YouTube! But that doesn’t mean the next-gen youth is not familiar with this star who still rules the hearts of millions!
This time, Govinda is back with a rib tickling one location sort of comedy, FryDay.
FryDay is to an extent, inspired by a long forgotten Skip Wood’s 1998 Dark-Comic-Thriller Thursday that starred Thomas Jane. I repeat, FryDay is just an inspiration (Even if the makers swears they haven’t seen Thursday).
The story of FryDay takes place on Friday. A 27-year-old salesman Rajiv (Varun Sharma) has to sell one water purifier by Friday. He heads for the house of the popular theater actor Gagan Kapoor (Govinda), who is actually a loving husband but at the age of 40, a man with a series of extra-marital affairs on his shoulders.
And this time (While Rajiv is about to install the Water Purifier), Gagan is busy romancing with Bindu (Digangana Suryavanshi) who is married to a Cop!
If i speak about the performances, Govinda and Varun Sharma both steals the show along with Digangana Suryavanshi who will surely surprise you with her amazing comic timings and her looks. But it’s all the way Govinda who sets the screen on fire with his presence every time. As they say, a Legend always remains a Legend! And Govinda proves it once again.
Varun Sharma is another talent who has an amazingly bright future in the industry. Varun matches the comic timings terrifically with Govinda and takes the hold of every scene.
Other actors which includes lovely talents like Brijendra Kala and Rajesh Sharma especially will leave you in splits for sure.
The camera work and music is good and gels exactly with the screenplay. Editing wise, it could have played a little less duration in the second hour however.
Abhishek Dogra has made and executed a wonderful entertaining script with keeping everything clear in his mind. He, as a Film maker also succeeds in extracting the right required performances from all the actors without letting them go over-board.
Go watch FryDay which, i assure, will surely make your day.
