Coffee with D Reviews
When the film is about Don Dawood and an Arnab Goswami doppelganger, you expect jokes galore. What you get instead is this craving to run as far away from theatre as possible.
Coffee With D is like an unfinished unpolished version of what could have been a rollicking run-in into a ruminative session between Indian’s biggest fugitive and loudest journalist. If only it had been allowed more leg-space to lunge in the lap of the ludicrous.
If you have got absolutely nothing to do this weekend, you could consider watching this film.Honestly, though, I would prefer watching Sunil Grover on The Kapil Sharma Show instead.
It could have been good film, but the undoing of Coffee With D is its post-production. The film is let down by shoddy editing and a bad dubbing job where entire sentences are muted and out of sync. A story that has potential is ruined by poor execution that distracts you from the plot.
Coffee With D is strictly avoidable. Don’t waste your money on this one!
What do we learn about Dawood, thanks to 'Coffee With D'? That he diverted the Malaysian Airline Flight 370, because he was travelling from KL to Karachi, but the flight itself was headed to Beijing. He just landed the plane in his house, and the missing passengers are now his servants. Eh? This is not even funny.
D for Damn you cosmos, for allowing this injustice.This is not a film. It is a waste of time.
If you love Sunil Grover and Pankaj Tripathi and wish to enjoy a light, sans song and dance flick this weekend, this one is for you!
You can watch it if you are looking to enjoy a light movie. Even if you skip it, you are not missing out on anything.
Coffee With D aims for conversational comedy, but it never quite hits its stride. Grover, the television actor best known for his mimicry-based characters Gutthi and Rinku Bhabhi, is miscast as the hero of the enterprise. Grover doesn’t have the ability to command the big screen, and the absence of clever dialogue leaves him visibly floundering.
Audience Reviews for Coffee with D
A "D"sastrous & rather bland coffee which fails as a comedy.
In India and the world, media plays a crucial role. Making a film on media itself is no easy task. Many filmmakers have tried this genre and add satirical pinch to make it sound funny. And many a times, they succeed too. But not all succeed. The makers of Coffee WITH D wanted to give something humorous, but didn't succeed in their effort as the film turns out to be bland, especially in terms of humour though a few jokes do work at times.
COFFEE WITH D is a film I watched with heavy expectations. And that's my fault. I don't consider negative reviews as a factor for not watching a film. If I feel a film's good, I do watch it. So keeping aside the negative reviews, I decided to watch the film as the trailer seemed promising. But this film isn't funny at all. Only a few jokes work here and there, and the film doesn't have much to offer as the content is executed very poorly. I was very confused whether to like or dislike the film.
The editing is the biggest negative part for COFFEE WITH D. Subplots don't work at all. The film doesn't succeed in justifying its 2-hrs long running time as many sequences could've been easily edited out. Also, the sprinkling of B-Grade stuff doesn't work or help the film in any way. Rather, it makes the viewer cringe at times. The film is not for family audiences as it gets too vulgar at times, though not fully. The song "Teri Duniya Di" is good and remains with you even after leaving the film, but no other song is any good at all.
The film, however does entertain towards the last 30 minutes and in the beginning. It's only in between that the film gets disappointing, making us ask: Where's the humour? It doesn't seem like a comedy film. Sunil Grover is quite disappointing in both acting & dialogue delivery. He however tries hard and his efforts can be noticed in many portions. Zakir Hussain is somewhat okay with his act. The heroines Anjana Sukhani and Dipannita Sharma have nothing great to do in this film. The show and scene stealer is Pankaj Tripathi, who offers a solid humorous punch with his comic timing and act. But sadly he isn't given that proper scope. Besides, the climax seems interesting but the ending shot is hardly any entertaining.
Having said that, COFFEE WITH D is unfortunately a disappointing film, watching which depends on you. You may watch it, but you're bound to be disappointed unless you're a die-hard Sunil Grover fan. That's another thing that even his fans won't be impressed much with his act and film.
