Batti Gul Meter Chalu Movie Review:


 Director Sree Narayan Singh raises the low-shedding issue with the movie “Batti Gul Meter Chalu” after “Toilet EK Prem Katha”. The film is based on TIHRI district of UTTARAKHAND this is the reason characters of the film speaks the language “Kumauni”. This film shows the glimpse of Indian “Pahadi Culture”. The film is 3 hours long that could be less up to 30 minutes with taking on to the editing table.

The film makes you feel bored in the first hour and if you keep maintaining your calm on your sheet in the first hour then you will enjoy the film ahead. Especially the courtroom drama in the 2nd half is entertaining. Music of the film is impressive and becomes the part of audiences’ music player before the release of the movie.
