Fatso! Movie Review

Fatso! will almost certainly bomb at the box-office, but those who do see it against their better judgment will consider themselves lucky and enjoy the warmth and sensitivity of the plot and portrayals for many days.

Fatso! will almost certainly bomb at the box-office, but those who do see it against their better judgment will consider themselves lucky and enjoy the warmth and sensitivity of the plot and portrayals for many days.

We saw the film Fatso in a near empty (1-2 percent occupancy) hall in a Noida multiplex first show Friday, May 4, having bought the ticket from the crowded box office packed with the youngsters, almost all of whom were there to watch Avengers and Jannat-2!

Fatso! starts unconvincingly and the empty hall around us made us wonder if the producers would have bettered their chances of breaking even had they released the film straight to DVD.

Fatso Review

The first twist in the plot, which was brazenly out of the box, made the film a little more engaging, but stretched credulity and aroused our suspicions as to where the plot was headed.

More twists followed, all of them outrageous and out-of-the box. Soon we were at a point where we stopped caring about the film's credibility and started to focus on the filmmakers creativity. We dropped our guard, stopped resisting and started to enjoy the brazenly outrageous story line, much like the someone with no belief in afterlife starts to enjoy someone's recall of an out-of-body experience.

By the second half of the film we were totally into the plot and comfortable with its message, if not the manner of its delivery. Most of all, we started to enjoy the sensitivity of the portrayals by Ranvir Shorey, Gul Panag, Purab Kholi, Gunjan Bakshi and Neil Bhoopalam.

Ranvir Shorey and Gul Panag had the most difficult portrayals and they excelled.

This is one of those films that starts slow but inexorably starts to tighten its grip on you.

At Sawfnews.com, we don't consider ourselves qualified to review films. We also pride ourselves in our honesty.

So we won't recommend the film to you, expecially if you are the hormonal kind looking for high octane thrills, a bang for every buck that you paid at the box office.

But if you like good cinema, or if you want to give your hormones a break, Rajat Kapoor directed Fatso! is a must see film.

We think discussing its plot would be a spoiler, so we will just recap what Gul told us about the film Fatso in a recent interview.

"The film is about 5 friends, their intersecting love lives (three boys wooing one girl), friendships, heartbreaks and loss.

"One of friends is fat, and loved by all. The film looks at attraction & love that goes beyond good looks."

Take your chances with that and who knows you may enjoy it as much as we did.
