Parineeti Chopra Shines On Her Own Merit In ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’

Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, this film stars Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles. The story of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar starts when suspended Haryanvi cop Pinky (Arjun Kapoor) saves the life of a very successful banker and high profile woman named Sandeep (Parineeti Chopra) who is being hunted down to be murdered by her boss. Pinky who was supposed to be the one to turn Sandeep in decided to help her when he realizes a shocking detail that his crooked inspector boss (Jaideep Ahlawat) hides from him. Sandeep and Pinky must now put their dislike for each other aside as in order to outrun some powerful people.

Many layers!

This film address and covers many important topics. From bank scams and how they affect the unsuspecting older generation, to class divide, and sexual abuse, this film tries to cover various important themes layered at different depts thought the film. The supporting cast especially Neena Gupta and Ragubir Yadav are very relatable as they play an elderly couple who are being scammed by the bank. We see various notions of patriarchy play out through some of their scenes and it’s all too common and relatable.

Parineeti shines!

It needs to be said that Parineeti is the star of this film. Her character Sandeep is complex and not easy to read. She keeps us wondering who she really is until the second half of the film. Parineeti aces the role of her character who demands her to be bold and head-strong but also sensitive and vulnerable. Her performance could be looked at as the saving grace in this film. Arjun Kapoor gets this Haryanvi cop accent and nature on point but wasn’t given the chance to explore his character deeper. We must say it was lovely to see him get out of his comfort zone in one of the final scenes in the movie. Unfortunately, the chemistry between the two lead actors was a tad bit off.

Slow-paced!

This film set out to explore a topic with a lot of potentials but came up short. Apart from its extremely slow pace, having a tighter script would have helped the cause immensely. The plot twists were predictable eliminating any suspense or thrill.

WATCH OR NOT:
This film makes for a great one-time-watch and will make for a weekend movie plan with your friends and family. Also, it’s worth watching Parineeti steal the show on the big screen.
