Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se: Ashutosh take a Break from Epoch Sagas

It appears that producer-director Ashutosh Gowarikar’s achievement is only reliant on epoch sagas. After producing hits like Lagaan and Jodha Akbar, this time he takes his call on a youth-centric revolutionary flick with Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone playing the lead.

An adaptation of the novel ‘DO AND DIE’ by Manini Chatterjee, the film is a periodical thriller which takes you back to the history of ‘The Chittagong Uprising 1930’ and stresses on India’s fight for freedom. The film portrays the story of the effort and the emotion of the youth during the British rule.

A faction of 64 members under the command of Surjya Sen, a freedom fighter and leader- educator, along with his associates assail two arsenals in Chittagong, furthermore, West Bengal hoisting an Indian ensign to accomplish freedom and to liberate the motherland from the clutches of the British rule. Supporting this posse are our forgotten brave heroes – Kalpana Dutta (Deepika Padukone), Pritilata Waddekar (Vishakha Singh), Nirmal Sen (Sikander Kher), Ambika Chakraborty (Shreyas Pandit), along with other headstrong and courageous revolutionaries. This embarks the blood-spattered expedition of anti-establishment movements, brave break out, terrible captures, thrilling assails, and their eternal bequest.

Ashutosh Gowarikar’s endeavor to portray the Indian history onscreen was good as usual but the movie apart from being a true story, seems to have unnecessary content that stretched its length to the extent of making one yawn incessantly. His endeavor to add a little flavour in the movie by portraying affection between Kalpana Dutta and Surjya Sen and the duo Pritilata Waddekar and Nirmal Sen was uncalled-for thus slightly making it unconvincing.

Abhishek Bachchan’s acting dexterity was appreciable but Deepika Padukone needs an improvement though since her struggle to portray herself as a brave revolutionary was unconvincing as it didn’t come out naturally. Though she looked stunning as a Bengali girl in traditional sarees but an improvement in terms of acting is a requisite.

Other co-actors were quite good in terms of acting and portrayed themselves as a revolutionary quite well on screen. On the whole the film scores an average and can be a one time watch.

    The movie is nothing short of being brilliant. Absolute treat to watch. It really doesn’t deserve two stars as given by the blog writer. I would give it a cool 7.8/10. In terms of stars 4 stars!

    I don’t mind director being stereotypical. But i do mind actors not being versatile. All movies don’t need to be fast. The story has its own pace and unravels itself in time. The label of being fast and slow is somewhat not right in terms of a movie and mainly given by novice/casual movie watchers.

    When its history being depicted, its the minute details of incidents that matter which may make the movie “slow”, but definitely makes sense, rather than the pulsating idiotic nonsense that Dabangg or any other Akshay Kumar crap released in our lifetime and making it “fast”.

    Acting was good. Although i agree with the Deepika part. She is not an actor anyways.

    Selection of the story is awesome. Direction brilliant. Other aspects of the movie are taken care of the strong plot itself.

    Best movies this year my a country mile!!!

    Go watch this guys! This is worth watching 2-3 times over.
