Ferrari ki Sawari - Preview

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

Ferrari Ki Sawaari is worth a watch in the theaters, just for the love with which it is put together and the warmth with which you come out. Who would have thought we'd be getting a positive lesson in parenting from a Hindi film and that too at the hands of Sharman Joshi and Satyadeep Misra?

Ferrari Ki Sawaari seems to be a fun film sandwiched between two political dramas, Shanghai and Gangs of Wasseypur. While, it might be a good break between two potentially heavy films, I don't think it will be a break from meaningful, good cinema. I like what the Vidhu Vinod Chopra - Rajkumar Hirani combination has produced, thus far. A lovely, flavorful mix where humor addresses a socially relevant issue.

What I loved about the trailer is that it doesn't give away much about the issue they are addressing or the medium they are going to use. In addition, it creates interest for the connection between the Ferrari and cricket, except of course Sachin Tendulkar.

Of course, it does look like it's going to be about a parent's aspiration for his child, a grandparent's skepticism and will hopefully bring about chemistry between the three generations. What with Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani playing those two roles!

That the music and lyrics of the songs sound like it's right out of Rajkumar Hirani's stable, it’s a surprise that it is actually by Pritam Chakraborty - a sentiment that is echoed in many of the music reviews. Oh yeah, and there is Vidya Balan's item number. While the song doesn't itself look anything very different from a regular lavni, that Vidya Balan is doing it, is interesting enough. Hopefully, there is more reason for it the song to be in the film than just that. And with Rajkumar Hirani being on board, there is scope for that, a la Munnabhai MBBS' 'dekh le'.

Another film to look forward to on back-to-back Fridays!
