The first Friday of March is witnessing a clash of two very interesting movies at the box office. On one hand is the romantic comedy 'Luka Chuppi' starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, on another hand is the dacoit drama 'Sonchiriya' starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranvir Shorey, Bhumi Pednekar and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles.
The movie is helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, who was also the brain behind 'Udta Punjab', and follows the life and the underbelly of the Chambal Valley.
The audience reactions are out and people are mostly raving about the power-packed performances of the stellar cast.
Terrific! The favorite genre of Bollywood is back and it will surely gain more fans . The movie is great in every aspect the direction , cinemetography, sound and editing are top notch . The writing is on point .
Sonchiriya is a lit movie ð¥ð¥.but only for the selective audience. Sushant sirð is phenomenal in his role and bhumi mamð had also done a great jobð..lack of music connection.overall a complete package of thrill and entertainment ðð¥ @itsSSR @bhumipednekar #SonchiriyaReview— Navnit Sharma (@navi_sharma77) March 1, 2019
While it is not a popcorn entertainer, the movie surely promises a gripping watch for serious cinema goers, who are looking for a strong script with a great screenplay.
what an amazing film..thank you @MumbaiFilmFest !!! #sonchiriya @RanvirShorey @BajpayeeManoj @itsSSR @RonnieScrewvala @bhumipednekar @RSVPMovies kudos! best line "the bullets made by the government will not kill me, its the promises that will!" https://t.co/N6HqHYIApY— Sapna Moti Bhavnani (@sapnabhavnani) February 27, 2019
#Sonchiriya is a rollicking affair; a social drama that exudes the frantic pace of an action film, peppered with marvellous dark humour. Abhishek Chaubey and writer Sudip Sharma are a force to reckon with. Politics, caste, feminism with a Spaghetti Western backdrop. What a blast! pic.twitter.com/N7P5P3N1Ib— Aniruddha Guha (@AniGuha) February 27, 2019
Mind blown. So sensitive, so brutal, such a finely observed critique of patriarchy and our caste system — #Sonchiriya is not to be missed.
Kudos Abhishek Chaubey, Sudip Sharma, @RonnieScrewvala + the entire team!
Thank you @MumbaiFilmFest @RSVPMovies #SonchiriyaAtMAMI
Some are even calling it as one of the finest bandit movies Indian cinema has experienced.
Almost exactly 25 years since Bandit Queen, arguably 'faadu-est' Indian film (ever)—a fine, fab tribute to Chambal, and the Curry Western (with/without the curry, or Western). Piece on the super-pic #SONCHIRIYA https://t.co/L6MyCjiCyi— Mayank Shekhar (@mayankw14) February 28, 2019 February 27, 2019
