Bollywood movie review: 'Kai Po Che' is simply outstanding

Abhishek Kapoor aces on his second run in Bollywood with a brilliant adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's 'The 3 Mistakes of My Life'

  • Sneha May Francis
Published Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Raj Kumar Yadav (L), Sushant Singh Rajput (C) and Amit Sadh (R), lead cast of Indian film 'Kai Po Che' play a cricket match during their promotional tour in Dubai.

After feeding us on a heavy diet of romance, Bollywood filmmakers are now undoing our appetite for the mushy stuff, and veering us towards bromances. It did work, in the past, what with 'Dil Chahta Hai', 'Rang De Basanti', '3 Idiots', 'Dostana' and 'Rock On!!!' all turning into blockbusters. 
So, by that rule, one-movie-old director Abhishek Kapoor's tale about brotherhood isn't unusually novel, considering his first 'Rock On!!!' explored the same dynamics. Yet, there's something uniquely endearing and extremely poignant about 'Kai Po Che'. 
And, like others in this inimitable genre, this too shall win innumerable accolades. Whether it's the captivating performances, the ambitious narrative, or poetic cinematography, 'Kai Po Che' is superior in texture and commendably subtle.
It also packs in all the ingredients of a sure-shot Bollywood success, without overplaying any one element. There's cricket, religion, politics, comedy, music, bromance and even a dash of romance.
Abhishek's adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's part-fictional, part-historical book titled 'The 3 Mistakes of My Life' is imposing no doubt, but, it's his ingenious trait to alter the end, without sacrificing its spirit, that deserves immense applause.
'Kai Po Che' delves into the life of three childhood friends as they chase their dreams in their rustic hometown of Ahmadabad at the beginning of the new millennium, only to find their ambitions derailed by terrifying earthquakes, religious intolerance and political manipulations. It plays devilish mayhem with their desires and rocks their incredibly intense bond. 
Despite their varying desires '  Ishaan's a failed cricket genius, Omi's a disciplined son of a priest, and Govind's a calculated businessman '  the three are inseparable, and remain united in their pursuit of a sporting dream in the early 2000.
A depleting bank account, notwithstanding, the three are determined to stick it out and make it big with their sporting academy. They find an unlikely sponsor in Omi's politically-driven uncle, who is more keen on promoting his nephew within his party circles than in encouraging his pals' cricketing aspirations.
The boys continue to chase their dreams with gusto, with Ishaan taking the hugely-gifted Muslim boy Ali under his wing and diligently coaching him to make it in the big league.

Their plans, however, come crashing down following the earthquake on January 26, 2001, exposing cracks in their friendship over brewing religious indifferences.
After a short separation, they reunite over cricket and slowly rebuild their camaraderie. But, the happiness is momentary.

They end up getting dragged into the 2002 communal violence that erupted in Gujarat after 58 Hindu pilgrims aboard a train were torched. What follows is the ghastly massacre of thousands of innocents.
Abhishek recreates the bloodied riots in menacing frames, and zooms in on how a community gets cornered by the terrifying mob. Without taking sides or being moralistic, he merely captures the gruesome slaughter that destroyed the soul of a city.  
Abhishek and Chetan join writers Pubali Chaudhuri and Suapratik Sen to create a screenplay that's both engaging and impactful.

The edit, at 135 minutes screen-time, by Deepa Bhatia is snappy, and doesn't appear sluggish despite the inclusion of three sound tracks by Amit Trivedi. If anything, it's the insipid love trail between Govind and Omi's sister Vidhya that's tiresome. 
Anay Goswamy captures the essence vividly, taking us a journey that's truly life-altering.

The multiple incidents do crowd the screenplay, disallowing the writers to uncover any one in detail. That's a shame considering there's just so much to be reported. 
Even though this isn't a one-hero movie, Sushant Singh Rajput outshines his reel buddies with his mesmerizing act in his Bollywood debut. He has got oodles of charm and is a natural. 
From portraying the feisty Ishaan's upheavals, to battling his inner conflicts at being unable to succeed, to wanting to set things right for Ali, Sushant paints Ishaan in vibrant shades.

Sushant's brilliance, however, doesn't take away the credit from debutant Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav, who are equally impressive. Amit's raw take on the pious Omi, who is torn between his friends and family, is enacted with matured restraint. 
Even Raj Kumar, who has a few notable movie performances up his sleeve, plays out Govind with striking lan. It's his awkward romantic sojourns that are the most delightful.

Of the supporting cast, it's the meek, cricketing prodigy Ali and the aggressive politico uncle of Omi who are notable. If there's a weak link, it's Amrita Puri, who is unable to captivate us as the sms-obsessed, love-struck Vidhya. 
Considering, Chetan's 'Five Point Someone' was a roaring success in Bollywood as '3 Idiots', it's only natural 'Kai Po Che' awaits a similar, befitting honour.

Although there have been many movies that celebrated friendship on-screen, it'd be a big mistake if you skipped this one.

'Kai Po Che': Assured and Accomplished

When it was first published in 2008, Chetan Bhagat's 'The 3 Mistakes of My Life' followed a familiar pattern for the best-selling author; the book was critically panned despite selling by the truckload.


A common thread in the negative reviews was the fact that Bhagat had, perhaps as a way of being taken seriously by critics, crammed every socio-economic and political malaise imaginable into his tale about three aspirational friends in the vibrant new, 21st century India.


From young love and the cynicism that underpins the Hindu-Muslim relationship through cricket and natural disaster, '3 Mistakes' had everything, drenched in Bollywood-esque melodrama, making for an often-incoherent read.


Actor-turned-director Abhishek Kapoor's ('Aryan') film adaptation, surprisingly, doesn't suffer from the same problem.


The year is 2000.  The new millennium has brought a wave of economic prosperity to India.  


People are hopeful of the future, no more so than Govind (Rajkumar Yadav), Ishaan (Sushat Singh Rajput) and Omi (Amit Sadh); three friends who share a common ambition for fame and fortune despite their utterly disparate personalities and modi operandi.


With the help of some unaccounted-for cash from Omi's politician-uncle 'Bittu Mama' (the outstandingly treacherous Manav Kaul) the three friends set up a cricket academy inside a Hindu temple complex.


Even as the friends become preoccupied with their individual destinies ' Govind falls for Ishaan's maths-challenged little sister, Omi repays his uncle's generosity by entering politics and Ishaan takes on a pet project in the form of a talented young cricketer called Ali ' the aptly-named Sabarmati Sports Academy goes from strength to strength with a gleaming new shop at a gleaming new shopping mall.  


The build up to this point is slightly labored as Kapoor lays the groundwork for this multi-faceted story with only picturesque Gujarat, Amit Trivedi's evocative score and Sushat Singh Rajput's chiseled torso keeping the audience company.


Up until the intermission, the film is fairly run-of-the-mill.  


In the second-half however, things explode on the screen; literally and metaphorically, as the devastating Gujarat earthquake of 2001 hits the friends' dreams as it takes the lives of 20,000 people.


Just as the rubble is cleared away, a massacre of Hindu pilgrims on a train from Ayodhya plunges the state where Mahatma Gandhi was born into a bloody cycle of violence.  


Kapoor depicts the violence and the underlying cynicism extremely well, with sensitivity but without pulling any punches with a climax that expertly portrays the individual impact on the friends of the wider communal issue.


Above all, Kapoor manages to deftly weave the multitude of narrative threads without over-taxing the audience.


All three central characters are well cast but it is Ishaan who is at the heart of the story; it is his compulsions that drive the narrative forward and Rajput does an excellent job as the instinctive, impulsive yet principled cricket coach.


Chetan Bhagat's book may have been a bit of a labyrinthine mess but it is to Kapoor's great credit that the film is not.  


The Indian censor board insisted on giving the film a 'Universal' rating, saying it needed to be watched by everyone in India.


In Bollywood's centenary year, the board's finally got something right.
