Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene Reviews
...the story had potential, but lacks chutzpah in its making. Too much of sharafat and no play makes it a dull watch.
If you are looking for a concoction of action, romance and humour in small dozes, then the Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene is a perfect average time pass for you.
Even though the film's director Gurmmeet Singh has tried his level best to weave a story spanning the life of a middle class working professional, the essence of the same still seems to be lost in transit. SHARAFAT GAYI TEL LENE is a strictly average film.
Inconsistent execution not withstanding, this funny little film actually serves up a few pleasant surprises.
The movie lacks imagination just like its name! The only bright spot in this 'oily' film is Zayed Khan's performance. The guy restricts himself well to play this 'much-in-love' boyfriend, who is sort of hen-pecked.
The best thing about this film is its short duration. Otherwise, it is just a huge disappointment.
The film takes on the theme of greed and covetousness and turns it into a pleasant satire. A saucy comedy about a commoner’s brush with the ‘D’ gang, this is an original smile-inducing romp into the realm of comedy where errors define the mood ,and the characters are not as interesting as the situations that the script tries to create for them.This is certainly funnier film than any other comedy this week.
Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene entertains only in parts and, given the very poor initial, it will fail to make a mark at the box-office.
With a sketchy narrative, unimaginative screenplay and apology of performances, Sharaafat Gayi Tel Lene barely has any merits to shout out for a pleasant watch at the theaters.
The film is not an over-the-top comedy and comes with unexpected twist and turns towards the end. Zayed Khan fans (if any) will find him likeable in this film. Watch it if you are looking for a light entertainer this weekend.
Audience Reviews for Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene
One gets a feeling that he/she has experienced this film somewhere, but then realizes that this comedy thriller is just a variation of the countless similar films we have seen of this genre in Bollywood alone.
Prithvi (Zayed Khan) is a naive young man who works nine to five for a measly salary, and lives in a rented apartment with Sam (Rannvijay Singh), a lazy no-gooder. An ideal employee, Prithvi plays it safe by budgeting his monthly expenses and leading a frugal life despite having a high-maintenance girlfriend, Megha (Tena Desae). Things take an upward spin when Prithvi finds that INR 100 crore has been deposited into his account, followed by a menacing call from gangster Dawood Ibrahim directing him to do some "tasks". What follows is Prithvi and Sam's harrowed attempts at doing what they are told and trying to hustle some money for themselves.
An average movie-goer can easily predict how the story will turn out, and the plot has been written in such a manner so as to make that task convenient and boring for the viewer. The writers probably read scripts of similar Bollywood films, added some negligible plot points of their own, and created this. Direction is formulaic as the cast appear to do what they are told, without adding even a dash of idiosyncrasy. Nonetheless, the biggest problem with the film is its characters suddenly shedding their original frame and suiting up as masters of the game, which is not only unconvincing, but is also ennui-inducing.
Nothing extraordinary to talk about the actors. Although, it was relieving to watch Khan after a long hiatus. Poor lad seems to be unlucky in this field of acting. Desae, Kher, and Singh are average.
BOTTOM LINE: Gurmmeet Singh's "Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene" is at best an average show about few characters who suddenly seem to have great knowledge about the scam they irresponsibly became a part of. Watch it if it airs on TV.
