‘Kaagaz’ Movie Review: Pankaj Tripathi shines in Satish Kaushik’s directorial
Pankaj Tripathi starrer 'Kaagaz' is out now and streaming on ZEE5.
DIRECTOR: Satish Kaushik
RUNTIME: 1 hour
CAST: Pankaj Tripathi, Sandeepa Dhar, Satish Kaushik, Mita Vashisht, Amar Upadhyay
STORY: The plot of the film is based on the life and struggle of Lal Bihari Mritak, a farmer from a small village in Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh, India, who was declared dead on official papers and is waging a war to claim his identity.
REVIEW: Pankaj Tripathi yet again manages to outshine in this film. His performance is always a delight to watch and it truly because he always stays true to his craft. His character is quite different from his recent ventures. Mita Vashisht and Brijendra Kala have short cameos. Monal Gajjar, who plays the role of Bharat Lal’s wife Rukmini, has performed really well and has a good screen.
Satish Kaushik’s direction is in full control of the narrative and the movie has been shot at a big level. The songs of the film are good. The editing of the film could have been a little better. At some parts, the scenes look overemphasized, however, the script of the film looks authentic.
Overall, ‘Kaagaz’ is a masterfully written story and it is a quirky comedy, and it depicts the common man’s chucklesome journey on identity crisis. To conclude, the film is surely worth the watch and it will make you stick to you for Pankaj’s stellar performance.
