'Relationship' is the flavor of the week for two Bollywood films which hit the screens this Friday. While one release talks about Fyaar, Pyaar and everything else, the other is about friendship turned into love. In this review, I’m talking about the latter, which is Mitron, and the film does not talk or revolve around PM Modi. Directed by Nitin Kakkar, this film is a remake of Telugu film Pelli Choopulu. Set against the colourful backdrop of Gujarat, the film focuses on a couple which wants to make their life successful by doing something unique.

Jai (Jackky Bhagnani), according to his father, is a loser and useless. He has consistently failed in engineering and does not prefer a boring 9-5 job. He is clueless about his future but only knows that he wishes to pursue something exciting. His two friends (Pratik Gandhi and Shivam Parekh) help him in many ways to make money but fail always. His father insists on getting him married, because of a belief that the lady luck might change his life for food. While heading for a meeting to meet the girl, Jai and his family, due to a mistake, end up meeting Avni (Kritika Kamra) and her family. Conversations lead to several topics, aspirations, and ideas, which eventually blossoms into friendship. Avni shares her story of food truck business with her ex-boyfriend Vikram (Prateik Babbar). Time flies, and both partner to start the same business. The story thereafter revolves around how the business brings them together.

First things first, the use of Gujarati is perfected by the actors. Their diction expert’s job is appreciated. The film has been presented differently with some freshness, despite the script, which we have come several times. It talks about two subjects very strongly, which many youngsters face today. One being a profession and the other marriage. Practical and relatable issues have been addressed by the film which strongly connects with the audience, that is aspirational to try different ventures. The theme revolving around start-ups and social media adds to the thought. The narrative equally talks about problems faced about a wedding, where men and women are pushed into a relationship at an age where priorities differ. It is commendable that the writer has balanced both these topics well with subtle humour which does not hamper the film.

Jackky Bhagnani does well in this film, and one can relate to his act. His command over Gujarati and the use of language fluently is commendable, especially in the short monologue. He is perfect and doesn’t go overboard with it. There are scenes where one would feel sorry for him for being useless and related to the failure. Experienced Television actress Kritika Kamra does well in the film, just as she does on the small screen. Not to forget, Kritika looks stunning, and kudos to the designer/stylist for the job done well. Newbies Pratik Gandhi and Shivam Parekh, who play Jackky's friends, support the cast well. Pratik’s pun and one-liners would make you laugh.

 Songs are well incorporated in the film, and the album is quite interesting. The film has also given the Garba lovers a new take on a popular folk song, sung by Darshan Raval and composed by DJ Chetas and Lijo. The makers have made the best of the location. Just watching the film will give you the sense of communities based in such cities.

To sum it up, efforts of making such films deserve to be lauded as they mirror the societal problems. Focused towards attracting the youth, and the Gujarati crowd may draw the audience to the theatre. This, my mitron, is a film for you and your family. Ae haalo….
