Outstanding. Marvellous. Breathtaking. All these words should be synonym for the film of the stature of ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’. It’s a black comedy based on the two dramatically different lives, united out of mistrust and suspicion to come out of the trail of deception they left.
Parineeti Chopra is an underrated actor from India. This is her best work, best film in which she has led her role brilliantly. So does Arjun Kapoor. He has improved as an actor a lot. He should be proud to have played a lead in the film.
Rahul Kumar is the star performer. His energy levels are unparalleled. As spontaneous as the whisky oozing out of the champagne, he is on the right path to be playing more character roles. Neena Gupta, Jaideep Ahlawat and Raghubeer Yadav have been tremendous too.
The film has a soothing background score aptly keeping you hooked. With Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Dibakar Banerjee has delivered an out of world film yet again.
Well scripted, precisely edited, the film has everything it needs to be declared as India’s Oscar entry for 2021. Rating: 8/10.
