Fukrey 3: A Rollercoaster Ride of Laughter and Unexpected Twists
Back With a Bang
Fukrey 3, the latest installment of the well-loved Fukrey franchise, is making waves as it hits the screens, offering audiences a hearty dose of laughter and entertainment. The director, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, has managed to score a hat trick with the franchise, maintaining the tone of humor and the presentation of characters that fans have come to expect and appreciate.
The plot revolves around the beloved Fukra gang, featuring Hunny (Pulkit Samrat), Choocha (Varun Sharma), Laali (Manjot Singh), and Pandit Ji (Pankaj Tripathi). They find themselves on a new adventure, this time fighting an election against the cunning Bhooli Punjaban (Richa Chadha) for the greater good of society. The cause for this unexpected political venture is a deja vu moment, which unfolds into a hilarious cat and mouse game of power. The film captivates the audience as it unravels what pushes the gang to fight the election, the triggers for Bhooli Punjaban, and the implications of Choocha’s Deja Chu.
Strength in Writing
Fukrey 3 owes much of its success to solid writing by Vipul Wig. Despite dealing with a rather wacky idea, the film manages to strike the right balance, thanks to the strong character foundation laid down in the previous installments. The gags and quirky one-liners are well-integrated, evoking bouts of laughter throughout the film. However, the distinguishing factor for Fukrey 3 lies in its storyline, which, unlike most comedies, is driven by situationally crafted humor and not just dialogues.
Varun Sharma, as Choocha, absolutely steals the show with his immaculate comic timing, lifting the humor in the film to another level. Pulkit Samrat, as Hunny, brings a calming balance to Choocha’s madness, while Pankaj Tripathi continues to evoke laughter with his effortless presence as Pandit Ji. Richa Chadha is in her element as Bhooli Punjaban, while Manjot Singh brings a certain innocence to his character, Lali.
While Fukrey 3 scores high on humor and storyline, it falls flat with its music album, which is a letdown compared to the memorable songs from the previous installments. The film also lacks a romantic track, which was a charm in the earlier parts. Additionally, at a runtime of 2 hours and 30 minutes, the film feels slightly stretched for a comic venture. The narrative, particularly in the first half, could have moved at a quicker pace.
Despite its flaws, Fukrey 3 wins the day with smart writing, engaging storyline, and laugh-out-loud moments. Varun Sharma’s outstanding performance as Choocha and the synergy of the entire Fukra gang ensure an entertaining watch. While there is scope for crisper editing, Fukrey 3, with its array of comic moments, is poised to emerge as a winner at the box office. The film is all set to release on September 28, and early reviews suggest that fans of the franchise are in for a rollercoaster ride of fun and laughter.
