Delightful Drama!

By Jaidev Hemmady, MovieTalkies.com, 11 April 2013 3 / 5

Nautanki Saala! Movie Review- In Short:
A do-gooder tries to help a heart-broken and suicidal friend get his girlfriend back and ends up falling in love with her instead.

Nautanki Saala! Movie Review-Verdict:
Though Rohan Sippy comes up with a light-hearted and fun watch, the second half has been dragged to an extent and the characters seem a tad unreal.

Nautanki Saala! Movie Review-Story Plot:
Ram Parmar (Ayushmann Khurrana), the director and lead actor of his play Ravanleela is a do-gooder, who can never resist helping anyone in distress. When Ram comes across a man named Mandar trying to commit suicide, the former rescues the latter and takes him under his wing, so to say. Mandar Lele (Kunaal Roy Kapur) is nursing a broken heart as his girlfriend Nandini (Pooja Salvi) has left him.

Trying to get Mandar back on track, Ram gets him hired in his Theatre Company and goes behind his back to try and get Nandini back in his life. Things get complicated when Ram and Nandini end up falling for each other. What happens next? Watch this 'drama' to find out.

Nautanki Saala! Movie Review-Performances:
Both Ayushmann and Kunaal displayed their acting skills and their comic timing with Vicky Donor and Delhi Belly respectively and with Nautanki Saala!, they do it again. Ayushmann as the do-gooder and Kunaal as the helpless, hopeless Mandar are an absolute delight on the silver screen. The babe brigade, comprising of  Evelyn SharmaPooja Salvi and Gaelyn Mendonca, do not have much to do. Watch out for Sanjeev Bhatt, who plays the producer of the play. The man, with his short stature and a pronounced South Indian accent, will make you laugh till your sides hurt!

An Experiment That Works

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 02 March 2013 3.5 / 5

Director Rohan Sippy comes back after a not so successful Dum Maaro Dum with Nautanki Saala! , a romantic  comedy which stars the multi talented sensation Ayushmann Khurrana of Vicky Donor fame (he has also contributed to the composition & lyrics for this film)  and Kunaal Roy Kapur in lead roles. Apart from Khurrana, music for the film has been composed by a host of talented musicians including Falak Shabir, Rochak Kohli, Mikey McCleary and Rashid Khan. Lyrics for the film have been provided by Kausar Munir along with Falak Shabir, Rochak Kohli, Gurpreet Saini as well as Ayushmann Khurrana. That apart, a couple of classics including Dhak Dhak (Anand Miland) & So Gaya Ye Jahaan (Lakshmikant-Pyarelal) have also been recreated for this film, the lyrics of which have been contributed by Sameer & Javed Akhtar respectively.

Rohan Sippy’s films, irrespective of their fate at the box office, have always had excellent music. This has been the case right from his first film, Kuch Naa Kaho till his last release, Dum Maaro Dum. Now Nautanki Saala! Is good too, what with Rohan Sippy delivering an assortment of sounds.

The album opens with the beautiful Mera Mann Kehne Laga which has been written, composed & sung by the multifaceted Pakistani musician, Falak Shabir, last heard in Saajna from I, Me aur Main. This track has not one or two but a total of four versions in the album and each one of them is truly outstanding. By the time the listener hears all the four versions, he would have fallen in love with this number. With lyrics that are easy on the ears and soothing music and an even more wonderful rendition, Shabir sure has a winner in his hands. If one finds the first version soothing, the reprise version is even more appealing with less instrumentation and sounding almost like a lullaby, in spite of the song being a romantic number. Tulsi Kumar lends a sensuous touch to the female version and ends up with a satisfactory performance though she did seem to lay unnecessary emphasis on some of the words. The weakest link in my opinion would be the remix version since a song such as this sounds best with minimalistic instrumentation and adding more sounds only ends up reducing the magical effect of the song. Still, this remix version sounds way better than many of the other such versions that we have heard in the other recent releases. All in all, one of the best songs to have come out this year.
