Review By: Grinell Jacinto
Motichoor Chaknachoor is a sweet romance between a Dubai returned accountant and an ambitious small-town girl who wants to marry an NRI. The story follows Pushpinder Tyagi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) a 36-year-old accountant who is just back from Dubai and is hoping to marry as soon a possible. It also follows the dreams of his neighbor Annie (Athiya Shetty), a girl who has rejected multiple proposals in the hope of setting abroad.
What follows in the next 2hours 30mins is a load of comedy and drama before and after the two leading actors tie the knot. Does Annie make it to Dubai? Well, you will have to watch the film to know.
Talking about performances, you will fall in love with Nawazuddin’s character. He aces in the character of a small town NRI who is desperate to get married – watch the movie to know why we say desperate. The nuances he has adopted for the role is commendable. Athiya too does a good job as the ambitious girl.
The other supporting cast – right from the parents, to the aunts, sibling, and even the bhajiwala – are all in their element and are sure to make you laugh. The dialogues and one-liners are fun to listen to and you may relate to a few.
The music is not loud and doesn’t act in negation to the film.
Talking about the content, the storyline of Motichoor Chacknachoor is weak and is something that you can predict. It follows the typical Bollywood path where in spite of having pole apart personalities, the lead actors yet become one in the end.
Another drawback of the film is its editing. The usage of black screen to transit from one scene to another is disturbing. The direction of the film is good.
