PATAAKHA Movie Review: Direction & Music

PATAAKHA” is tropical VISHAL BHARDWAJ movie, he shows the daughter and father love brilliantly. The film is entertaining till the first half. The film makes you laugh with dialogues and expressions. But movie duration feels long to see the fight of two sisters. Story writing could be better. Moves get slow in 2nd half sometimes feels loud. It will be interesting to see how the urban audiences connect with the movie. Music is good with all the three songs “Tera Balma Gunda”…. “PAATAAKHA- Title Track” and “Gali Gali me Kulhad”.

 PATAAKHA Movie Review: Acting

All the characters of the film have played well. Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan worked hard for the movie and that shown in their characters, both they are perfect in DESI village girl avatar. No need to judge the potential of Sunil Grover as he is too good with the character in the film. Vijay Raj is very conscious in the role of Father.

Finale PATAAKHA Movie Review & Rating: 3/5 (3 Stars)
