Ayushmann Khurrana Interview: It’s a welcome change for me to not be the simple, sweet and good guy in a film!Ayushmann Khurrana

Q. Given your current choice of movies, when are you planning to do a serious movie?

A. The next film which I am doing is a serious movie. It’s a movie with Sriram Raghavan. That is a serious film. It’s a thriller.

Q. When a film is set in a small town, especially if it targets a particular section of a region, filmmakers tend to caricaturize things, especially their accent. What is your take on that?

A. I think it all depends on the director and the school of thought he or she is coming from and the kind of cinema he or she is making. In this particular film, we have tried to keep the accent of our characters exactly like the people of Bareilly and people of Lucknow speak. In Dum Laga Ke Haisha, there was a particular way of speaking, too.

In India, after a few kilometers, the twang changes, the accent changes. In this film, we had a language coach, Rohit Chaudhary, who has also acted in the film. He is playing my best friend in the movie. He is the one who took great care of our language and diction while shooting. He is from Uttar Pradesh. He has done theatre in Lucknow. He has been to Bareilly. He has traveled across the entire East and Western UP. So, being caricaturish is not the tone of our film. The level of the film is very commercial. It is a very realistic kind of cinema. The whole plot is interesting. And we believe in realism.

Q. Do you think if a story is set in the heartland of India, it becomes easy for the audience to connect to it?

A. It is a mix of the heartland and probably the class, the middle class. Apart from that, a film like Sairat, for example, was a Marathi film. Many non-Marathi people could still relate to it. I could relate to it. There was the small town romance, the basic rooted romance, which was so strong that people could relate to it. Similarly, Haider was set in Kashmir. So, it was kind of different for the rest of India to see how the language is there and how they portray their culture. So, getting acquainted to a different culture in a rooted manner is very new for the cinema. So they love watching that kind of films.

Q. It is the first time that you have got another hero to share the screen space with. What was the reel and real life chemistry like with Rajkummar Rao?

A. This is the first time I am working with a contemporary. But having said that, it’s always fun to work with somebody of your age. In a solo film, if the schedule is of 50

Partition: 1947 One Line Review:

It is a heartfelt period drama which depicts the factors that eventually lead to cause Indo-Pak Partition, the most smeared even in the human history!

Positives Points: Non-documentary narration, heartfelt performances and well used of old archive footages in the narration!

Negatives Points: The grittiness could have been more elevated without demeaning niche of narration!

Partition: 1947 Review Plot:

The Partition 1947 is a period drama set in the era of pre-independent India. The story or we say stories revolve around the last Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, in the last days of British reign on India. Apparently, Lord Mountbatten was assigned by Queen Victoria to settle don’t the chaos caused by the friction in people belonging to many religions. British rule wished to change the conditions for the better before they handed over their charge to the newly formed democracy and this responsibility was helmed to Lord Louis Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville)

The film also follows the love story of Jeet (Manish Dayal) and Aalia (Huma Qureshi), who met again in the Viceroy’s house, which further rekindle their old flames of love which took place in the Lahore few years ago, when Jeet helped Aalia to meet and provide amenities to her then imprisoned blind father Rahim Noot (Om Puri). Their story progresses, they were too victimized by the tumultuous impact of Indo-Pak partition! Both stories of Last Viceroy and Jeet and Aalia go parallel while depicting the gruesome tragedies during the time of independence!

The film does its job in portraying political revelations of British rule and Viceroy’ point of view, the turmoil felt during formation of new democracy if the British rule left the country, hinting the reasons why Indian political front was sore towards Lord Mountbatten’s noble efforts hand over freedom the news Indian deserves without any bloodshed and most importantly the grim reality of the partition! The narration of the film takes no time to take you to that era and make you feel connected to the plot of the film and well for the people who were going through that struggle!

Partition: 1947 Review Direction:

Though it is a spoiler, Partition: 1947 is a passion project for the director Gurinder Chadha, which will be revealed before credits will start rolling! It now makes sense as for why she chose such different subject to make a film than here typical film trajectory! And in the task of justifying the subject is done well! Rather than focusing entirely on historical happening and making it look like a documentary, she put emphasis on character development and revelation, which put our audience in their place and feel what they were going through. Applaud also goes for not overdoing narration with the only color of patriotism.

Partition: 1947 Review Character Performance:

In most historic period dramas, elaborate and detailed set pieces and plotlines just provide a setting, it’s the actors and their performance that makes a film an experience to watch. And performances by every actor in the cast make it so compelling to watch, even for just 106 minutes in the theatre. Before talking about the lead characters, some of the notable performance by Denzil Smith, Darshan Jariwala, Samrat Chakrabarti, Sarah-Jane Dias, Neeraj Kabi, Tanveer Ghani were

Dhanush: 'VIP 2' starts from where 'VIP' ended. It's a proper sequel to VIP!Dhanush

Q. VIP was a huge success at the box office. What are your expectations from its sequel, VIP2?

A. Definitely the same kind of box office numbers, maybe more. VIP means unemployed graduate. The film got a lot of love from people because it dealt with day to day problems. The life can still be beautiful if you believe in the basic essence of life which means love. I am hoping for the same kind of love for VIP 2 also.

Q. VIP was made only in the Tamil language whereas its second installment is coming up in Hindi as well. What made you make the movie in both the language?

A. When we made the film (VIP), we didn’t know it would become such a huge blockbuster. Of course, we hoped for it, though. Once that happened, initially we wanted to do the second part is Tamil and Telugu. But then when Kajol ma’am came into the picture and since I am known here a little and she is a star in Hindi market, we thought why not explore the Hindi market as well.

Q. Is the movie a proper sequel to its predecessor or it's a completely new story?

A. It is a proper sequel to VIP. The movie has started from where VIP ends. It’s a tale about a simple man and his ordinary world where he wants to be an engineer and waits till he gets his desired job. He doesn’t hop onto anything that is offered to him, but decides to work only what he desired to. Here, his humble world collides with an empress of the corporate world. Both of them have their own principles and ideologies and that’s where the narrative moves forward.

Q. How was it like to work with Kajol?

A. It was fascinating. I have grown up watching Kajol ma’am's films and it’s been a pleasure working with her. Who has not seen Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge? She is such a fine, talented and seasoned performer that her performance helped me do my job better.

Q. How did you come about casting her in the film?

A. Once I finished writing the film with Vasundhara all that came to my mind was somebody like Kajol ma’am, just somebody who is like her. And one day I was like 'why not her?'. I mean, we were aware that she hasn’t done any film in another language in the last 20 years but I just wanted to give a thin chance. We just approached her
