Ferrari Ki Sawaari Reviews

5

Like the Munnabhai movies and 3 Idiots with which it shares its DNA, Ferrari Ki Sawaari is a well-intentioned film with its heart positioned firmly in the right place. And yet, this simple-minded tale about an ordinary family chasing an extraordinary dream never quite soars.I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for director Rajesh Mapuskar’s Ferrari Ki Sawaari. A little shorter, a little more subtle, this one could’ve zoomed.

It’s not as if ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ doesn’t have its points. I haven’t seen such a natural little boy in a Hindi film in a long time. Sahore gets being naughty and willful and wistful without lapsing into artifice, and that is all too rare in saccharine-coated Bolly kidsworld. The little by-plays on the field are fun, too. And despite the fact that Rusy is made out to be this altogether too-gentle character who is more wuss than anything else, Joshi makes him watchable. Also, why don’t we get to see Seema Bhargava more often? She is so good here, making her character zing. Which is what’s missing from ‘Ferrari’. It is nice, but bland.

Ferrari works as a film. It’s a story of reaching for your dreams, of endearing father-son relationships, and of moral lessons that aren’t preachy. It’s a formula that rarely fails — the sort of feel-good movie that makes for perfect Sunday viewing with the whole family.

Ferrari Ki Sawaari isn't something that was put together in a hurry because the actors were available. This was a tribute to all the young boys who spend countless hours, dreaming of the day when they can wield the bat with the same passion as the master blaster does. A sweet feel good film with its heart in the right place.The dialogues by RajKumar Hirani entertain us with a handful of LOL-worthy moments.And that is the best that can be said about Ferrari Ki Sawaari. One or two brilliant moments, a handful of good moments but they don't come together to give us a great film.

Ferrari Ki Sawaari is a thank you note to Sachin Tendulkar for inspiring a whole generation of young Indians to pick up the willow and knock the cricket ball around with intent. It would have made its point a lot better had it been as crisp as a Sachin cover drive or as heart-pounding as the thrill of a Ferrari at full throttle. It’s neither.

Rajesh Mapuskar does succeed in extracting decent performances from the entire cast. Sharman Joshi, as an uncertain and shy guy with a constant smirk on his face that tries to hide his inner sorrows, skillfully underplays his part. Occasionally he seems too passive but is still likeable.

All these factors combined with a tear-jerker of an ending makes Ferrari Ki Sawaari a full family entertainment flick. It is a good way to spend your weekend and definitely your money’s worth.

On the whole, Ferrari Ki Sawaari is a well-intentioned and nicely made film that entertains in parts.

On the whole, FERRARI KI SAWAARI is a noble film, a film that has its heart in the right place. It's well-intended and sincere and it goes about its business with incredible earnestness. Of course, the film has its share of hiccups, but then all films do, right? But keeping the fault-finding apart, FERRARI KI SAWAARI is an accomplished effort. It's that exceptional film that communicates a point and tells a sensitive story in those 2.10 hours. This heartwarming, tender and sprightly film should not be missed!

FKS is a fun ride. Fathers too busy with their work to attend to their kids 'growing up' emotional needs will get an 'education'.

Ferrari ki Sawaari assures an entertaining ride throughout although it is more bumpy than it should have been. Nevertheless, such clean, heart tugging movies are fewer to come by which is why I would ask you to not miss it. I am sure the kids will love this Sawaari!

A film, which has childlike ambitions as its fulcrum, needs to be seen with the eyes of a child, they say. ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ comes across as mesmerising if the Dickensian footholds of reason and logic are dropped for some time. As a film which has the game of cricket as its scaffolding and thriving ground, the usage of a car belonging to the iconic cricketer might not be a phenomenal tribute, but is quite laudable. The producer and director of the film - Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajesh Mapuskar, have successfully pulled off their offering to the God of Cricket.

    "Feel good sawaari!!!"

    As a citizen of this great country, it's common knowledge that one thing which binds this nation irrespective of caste, creed or religion is undoubtedly Cricket. There is so much of fervor for this game in our country, that the players are virtually treated as demi-gods & the greatest of them all is Sachin. Such has been his contribution to the game, that whatever he does becomes a matter of national importance be it shifting to his new home or Schumacher gifting him with a Ferrari. Interestingly, his Ferrari is the focal point around which Vidhu Chopra's "Ferrari Ki Sawaari" is based upon. So will it be a master blaster like the legend himself???

    Kayo (Ritvik Sahore) is a very talented young cricketer who dreams of making it into the Indian cricket team in future. Kayo's father Rusy (Sharman Joshi), an honest & upright citizen absolutely adores his son & tries everything within his power to fulfill his cricketing dreams. But things hits a road block when Kayo gets an opportunity to train in Lord's which was way beyond Rusy's humble means. That's when Rusy plans of borrowing Sachin's Ferrari for a wedding planner in exchange for Kayo's training fees. But things zooms out of control as fast as Ferrari's 560 horse powers. Can Rusy rectify everything before it's too late???

    It's been almost 3 years since the greatest blockbuster of all time has emerged from the stable of Vinod Chopra. So naturally there was a great deal of anticipation with their latest release though the person calling the shots this time around was a debutant in the form of Rajesh Mapuskar. There is no doubt that there is a sense of sincerity & goodness throughout the whole film, but it lacks the punch which makes you sit up & take notice. The script by Rajkumar Hirani was decent which was pretty well supported by the screenplay of Rajesh Mapuskar & Vidhu Chopra.

    Sharman Joshi's performace was sincere & deserves praise along with Boman Irani. The supporting cast's roles just like in other Vidhu Chopra's films were pretty much the same & all of them have done justice to their parts. But the pick among the lot is definitely, Ritvik who was endearing & imparts a sense of charm to the screen.

    Verdict: The lack of big stars will make it struggle at the box office with hardly any takers for it apart from Multiplexes. It does have a feel good feeling about it but nothing more than that. In short, sip on a coffee & watch it as it makes for a relaxing watch!!!

    Rating: 2.5/5
