Gulabo Sitabo Movie Review: Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo is out on Amazon prime now. Let’s see the story of this film Gulabo Sitabo.

 Story:   The movie is based in the backdrop of an ancient villa Fatima Manzil in Lucknow.  Mirza Chunnan Nawab (Amitabh Bachchan) is the landlord of the villa and his lifelong ambition is to own the building and clear it of Baankey (Ayushman Khurana) and his family, who have not paid rent for months. Baankey  claims that his family has been staying here for seven decades, and matches him insult for insult, trick for trick. Left with no choice, Mirza Chunnan Nawab uses the law to kick out his tenants. Will he become successful doing it forms the rest of the story?

 Plus Points:

  • Amitabh Bachchan
  • Production values
  • Twist

Minus Points:

  • Entertainment
  • Lack of Emotion

Performance: Amitabh Bachchan has delivered superb performance. His body language, makeup,  the way of dialogue delivery are superb.  He mastered the Lucknow accent. Ayushmann Khurrana got a big opportunity to work with Amitabh Bachchan. And he is happy to play the supporting part. His performance is highlighted. Srishti Srivastava is terrific in a supporting role.  Last but not the least, Farrukh Jafar is an absolute delight.

Technical: As a director Shoojit Sircar has stepped out of his comfort zone in Gulabo Sitabo.  The backdrop Shoojit Sircar chooses and the way he sets his key characters  in the old city of Lucknow is superb.  The writing is strong. The cinematographer Avik Mukhopadhyay has focused his camera largely on the ordinary people and their mundane existences till now. Shantanu Moitra’s songs fit in with the narrative, but his background music is just ok. Chandrashekhar Prajapati handled the editing very well. Production design is one of the main assets of this film Gulabo Sitabo .The  twist that comes during the last half hour is superb and surprises everyone.

Analysis: Overall, Gulabo Sitabo is an interesting movie. Amitabh Bachchan’s mind-blowing performances are one of the major assets of this film. The best thing about Gulabo Sitabo, scripted by Juhi Chaturvedi.
