Sonali Cable: Film Review – A swing and a miss

A young girl decides to strike out on her own. Facing insurmountable odds, she has to take the fight to the big nasty corporation. Will she make it? This is the story of Sonali Cable.


Sonali is a plucky girl from the back streets of Mumbai, played by Rhea Chakraborty. She owns and operates her own internet service. Written and directed by Charudutt Archarya, this film reminds you how it feels to be passionate about your dreams. Starring Anupam Kher, Ali Fazal and the ethereal Rhea and many more, you get to see the best and worst parts of business.

The story is set against the backdrop of Mumbai. A tough city to survive in, even when you have everything handed to you. So you get tough or you get going. Or in some cases, you have to make it the hard way. Sonali does just that. With charisma and a sweet smile, she makes her way into homes and hearts, all the while delivering an essential service. These days, other than roti, kapda and makaan, we need broadband. This is the crux of the matter. How much are you willing to go through to be connected to the world? Corporations no longer look at customers as people, but rather as numbers and profits. This is adequately conveyed by Anupam Kher’s character. All power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thrown into this is Ali Fazal’s character. A boy whose dream is to make a difference, he has to face his mother and her ambitions. In the middle of both of these characters is Sonali, the girl who will make a man out of a boy and a woman who will fight for what is hers. Facing insurmountable odds, deceitful political nexus, double-dealing businessmen and crooks, Sonali has to take a stand. She has to adapt and strike for all those little people, the ones crushed by these big industries. 

As the movie progresses, we get a little lost. The length of the film makes it a bit heavy towards the end. Anupam Kher is a treat to watch. He makes being bad look so good. Rhea and Ali have palpable chemistry. Speaking of Rhea’s character, she is a tough girl but she doesn’t get to fully convey the depth of her emotions. It might be due to the fact that Rhea is relatively new to cinema, no doubt she will improve on her craft. Ali Fazal is alright, but he doesn’t bring magic to the screen. All in all, the whole ensemble cast does the job. In the grand scheme of things, we are reminded not to look for the big names, but to look for the story. And the story is a human one, where being tough and trying your best in the face of all odds determines your happiness. Where trust and loyalty can’t be bought. That is the feeling you will get.


Why should you watch this film?
This isn’t a story about just one girl who can spout the lines written. This film gets a point across – don’t always think that the big industries are looking out for your best interests. A lengthy film, you get to feel for Sonali and her plight. As the movie takes its course, you will feel a connection that only a movie with a story can have. Sonali Cable reminds us to that the little guys are tough and they ain’t going anywhere. Sometimes all it takes is someone who decides to take a stand.

    Sonali cable – saw the movie last night, last show… was very sleepy when I entered the hall, but once the movie started, there was not a wink… its a fast paced movie and not a single boring moment

    Rhea Chakrovarty plays the perfect Maharastrain girl – in fact she reminded me of some of my maharashtrain friends. She has emoted well throughout the movie – be it a carefree laugh with friends or her crying at a death… she is a natural..

    Smita Jaykar has played the perfect grey role, which is so missing in most of the Hindi movies… she is bad… but not always… she is good… but not too much.. i had been looking forward to such a character for a long time and was happy to see it finally!!

    Anupam Kher has been the best as always!!

    Raghav Juyal takes away the cake… he is an actor to look forward to…

    Excellent music, great lyrics and superb cinematography add tons of value to the interesting story line.
    Overall its a good movie to catch up this weekend!!!!
