Batti Gul Meter Chalu : Movie Review.

Shahid’s performances speaks more than anything else, he used to do mediocre films. After that he started choosing better films without bothering about their box office collections. Some films didn’t make a mark but the actor in him triumphed.  He must have had similar thought this time as well while accepting Batti Gul Meter Chalu.  Not each time happens same as was it before, as director thought of same after getting success of Toilet Ek Prem katha , that topic was waiting to be told, but not at this time with Batti, he tried to speak about such an essential daily amenity some of us are not privileged to get. There are many places in the country where people still don’t get enough electricity.

Shahid has come up with a social subject. Batti Gul Meter Chalu talks about an essential amenity which we require on daily basis. If any case we fail to get that…then?   The film is a story of Nauti (Shraddha Kapoor), SK (Shahid Kapoor) and Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma) who are friends living in the small town of Tehri in Uttarakhand. The trio is inseparable and their dosti is rock solid. But life takes a turn for the worse, when Tripathi’s new business set-up is slammed with an exorbitant electricity bill of 54 lakhs.

Story doesn’t make you to sit and watch thorough the film. As it is stretched and may bore you rather than provoke you. There are many loose ends in the film. To be honest apart from the performances, the script didn’t do well. Director Shree Narayan Singh, Bouyed by the success of Toilet decided to take the electricity mafia head on but falls flat. If the film would have been made on theft electricity on centre stage then it would have created a buzz.

As i am totally disappointed with Batti Gul Meter Chalu, now it’s your stake to watch it or not. I do suggest better to watch Manto. Manto has better conviction.

FilmiBhonga gives it 2 out of 5 stars
