Nautanki Saala! - Preview
Nautanki Saala! Makes you want to believe that lovely performances by two lead characters, witty dialogue and a philosophical concept delivered with humor would be enough to make a film rise above the ordinary. Unfortunately it is matched by plastic/caricaturish performances by the rest of the cast, some slapsticky humor and a run down south towards a typical climax.

Unfortunately though, you are reminded of Rohan Sippy's Dum Maaro Dum and you have to hold your excitement. In a way, that works out fine for Nautanki Saala because it keeps expectations under control.
The trailer doesn't give much away beyond the fact that Ayushman Khurana plays a theater director/actor and there is some form of a love triangle in the making. All of it has a quirky edge which only builds curiosity. The songs too seem to be liked my almost all reviewers.
A small budget film, which looks like it is going to be a different experience from the norm. Even if it isn't a good film, I might just enjoy the slight element of uniqueness it promises.
