Director: Abhishek Kapoor
Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Raj Kumar Yadav, Amrita Puri, Digvijay Deshmukh.

The movie can be described in three words: ‘Friendship’, ‘Politics’ and ‘Ambitions’! But these three words do not restrict the varying possibilities with which it can charms and leave the audience in a state of awe.

For all those who have not read the book ‘The Three Mistakes of My Life’ by Chetan Bhagat, on which the movie is primarily based on, the story is about three childhood friends, Ishaan, Omi and Govind, who together want to start a business of selling sports goods and start a cricket training institute in Ahmadabad. One is a district level cricket player; the second is a nephew of a Hindu politician, while the third is nerd. As the film unveils, it portrays the ups and down a childhood friendship has to face with the growing years as the reality of life seeps in.

The movie has a calming and captivating backdrop, with intense use of colors to portray emotions. Its music lingers and does the rightful job of playing with the audiences emotions the way it wants to. With a tang of Gujrati lingo added in places, the movie is a happy package. But, at the same time, it leaves no stone unturned to instill fear and melodrama wherever required with loud cinematography, to showcase the conflict point in Chetan Bhagat’s story. It depicts the vulnerability of strong emotions like anger and sadness.

In all, the movie leaves you satisfied with the mix of simplicity and impeccable screenplay by the actors, something that will find a place in your heart and bring a smile to your face when you catch a glimpse of it anywhere, even outside the theatre. In total, a must watch.
