Future To Bright Hai Ji Review Story Plot
Mild-mannered Ajay Kumar (Aamir Bashir) is a struggling writer, who is looking for a big break while his wife Sonia (Sonal Sehgal), a loud, hyperactive woman, plays character roles in television soaps. When the couple is told by an astrologer that their fortune would change within seven days, Sonia wastes no time in booking a new and bigger house in a better locality. Meanwhile, Ajay too lands a lucrative assignment to write a film script after he meets up a gangster-turned builder- turned film producer Verma (Vipin Sharma), who wants to launch his son.
However, things are not as easy as they seem and the couple inadvertently ends up getting entangled in unpleasant and undesirable situations, forcing Sonia to reconsider her belief in the prophecy.
Future To Bright Hai Ji Review Performances
As far as acting is concerned, there are no complaints at all! Everyone from Bashir to Sonal to the rest of the cast puts in a natural performance. Special mention must be made of Satish Kaushik, who plays a Punjabi real estate dealer and Anant Jog, who plays a lecherous cop. The two actors simply amaze you with their acting skills and though the latter has a small role, he still manages to impress you with his Maharashtrian cop role. Other actors like Brijendra Kala and Vipin Sharma too are amazing at their jobs.
Future To Bright Hai Ji Review Direction
The movie has a pleasant feel to it and the director is successful in portraying the lives of middle-class strugglers. A lot of detailing has gone in this process and it can be seen in the movie. A middle class viewer will certainly identify with the seemingly small problems (like procuring a marriage certificate for renting a house and dealing with irate members at a housing society meeting) that the couple encounter in the course of fulfilling their dream of a bigger house. However, on the flip side, this same factor might turn against the movie as there are no real challenges as such faced by the protagonists and you might end up feeling like watching a documentary about a middle class family. Some drama or an unpredictable twist would have definitely helped in making the film more entertaining and fun. However, there is enough humour to make you chuckle in appreciation, which is a blessing.
Future To Bright Hai Ji Review Final Word
This film can be defined as something, which neither falls in the 'bad film' category nor in the 'amazingly good' section…Do watch it for the sake of performances and the 'middle class' slice of life, if you have to…
