Chaarfutiya Chhokare: Film Review – A raucous yet insightful look at juvenile crime

Chaarfutiya Chhokare: Film Review – A raucous yet insightful look at juvenile crime

When it comes to films based on social issues, it gets a little tiresome, especially when badly-executed. With the same old tale of corrupt ministers and contractors, this week we have Manish Harishankar’s Chaarfutiya Chhokare starring Soha Ali Khan and Seema Biswas.

The film traces the story of an idealist, Neha Malini. A software engineer by profession, Neha comes down to India to pursue her dream. She goes to a small village in Bihar to set up a school for children. But her mission goes haywire, with the menacing intervention of the corrupt contractor and ministers. From child-trafficking to juvenile criminals, the village is a hub of all illegal activities you can imagine. Amidst these, Neha comes across three young boys – Awadhesh, Gorakh and Hari, who are hardened criminals. Later, when Neha realizes the underground criminal activities in the village, she sets out on a social war.

Manish Harishankar tries to bring out an important social issue in his film, but the whole film seems somewhat disjointed. What makes the film a total glitch besides the dull acting, is the bad editing and equally bad ear-aching background score. The technical disaccord and the one-dimensional characters might make you squirm in your seat.

Soha Ali Khan once again fails to make an impact upon us. Her acting is as damp as the weather in Bihar. Seema Biswas gives a stellar performance. She is raw and her expressions are natural. She is the only saving grace in the film. Even though the film is on the "Chaarfutiya Chhokare", there is very little focus on the three characters – Awadhesh, Gorakh and Hari. Harsh Mayar, Aditya Jaiswal and Shankar Mandal as the juvenile criminals play their part pretty well. Only if, the director focused more on their life than on Neha Malini and the school that never started.
Though the film tries its best to tug at our emotions, it fails miserably.

Why should you watch the film?
If you are looking for a film sans the usual masala and item numbers, Chaarfutiya Chhokare will cater to your craving. The film deals with an important social issue, which we don’t usually see on most of the mainstream Bollywood films.
