     Kai Po Che: Buddy, Buddy Baatein…. 15 October, 2013 On
    I would rank this film as one of the best 50 films I will ever see in my lifetime.
    It’s comparable to the friendship shown in another favourite Film: “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” but that’s where the similarities end.
    Rub off the gloss of ZNMD, substitute Spain for Diu (the poor man’s Goa) add characters, clothes and situations one can identify with: and you have KPC.
    It’s emotionally more gratifying than any other film I have seen in this year, so far.
    The story is a skilful mix of Cricket, religion, comedy, politics, romance and bromance (the term used to describe a non-physical-ahem-male bonding), punctuated by two real-life events: Man-made and natural.
    Three friends open up a shop in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, along with a sports academy.
    (1) Govind (Ram Kumar) the stable level-headed person, his incompetence seen only when he is romancing.
    (2) Ishaan (Sushant Singh Rajput) with the Devil-May-Care attitude, his frustrating cricketing career prompting him to realise his aspiration through an enormously talented youngster Ali (Digvijay Deshmukh)
    (3) Omi (Amit Sadh) not really caring where he is going as long as he is going somewhere.
    It’s his manipulability for which the friends must pay the price.
    Elated by the shop’s modest success they buy another shop in a swanky mall, with the help of Omi’s uncle, (Manav Kaul) a local politician.
    Here's where the first disaster takes place: The Gujarat earthquake.
    The effects are overcome, albeit with some hiccups.
    The Godhra riots, the second event, however, leave behind a permanent outcome with some expected and not so unexpected results.
    The scars remain and never heal but in spite of that, the film, miraculously, leaves you with hope: and that is the director’s triumph.
    The film is aided by a gratifying musical score.
    When the director shrewdly re-introduces the song “Manjha” during the friends’ reconciliation, the same words take on a different meaning.
    I could hear some people in the cinema hall quietly sniffing at this stage.
    The film also has a parallel narrative which could be anyone’s love story: The friend scared to romance the girl (Amrita Puri as Vidya) simply because she is his best friend’s sister:
    The first, awkward flushes of love: The soft touch by her on Govind’s shoulders, the slight brushing of an imaginary dust particle on his shirt when you feel its going to be a kiss, the palpable physical attraction during the Navratri leading to the inevitable…
    I had always thought that “Rock On” was ghost-directed by Farhan Khan but this film proves that Abhishek is a director of his own making.
    Chetan Bhagat, who is one of the screenplay writers, perhaps had a bigger role in “3 Idiots” success than he was credited (or rather dis-credited) for.

  2.  leaves you with mixed feelings 21 December, 2013 On
    this movie leaves you with mixed feelings and doesnt have a pleasant ending. the newcomers in the movie have done a great job.
    all three male lead characters are appropriate for their role and also the actress play their role nicely.
    movie is about the riots in gujarat and the families which got affected due to the same.
    sushant singh really good work.
    commendable music by amit trivedi.
    SHUBHARAMBH song is very nice

  3.  good adaptation. 20 December, 2013 On
    Kai Po Che is an adaption of chetan bhagat's novel three mistakes of my life. Director Abhishek kapoor like his earlier film rock on has kept the narrative tight and the actors though new have acted really well. The Story revolves around cricket and the gujarat riots of 2002 and the life in ahmedabad has been shown extremely well.

     Gripping Story enacted well!! 11 July, 2013 On
    This is the second release of Abhishek Kapoor after Rock on and he doesn't fail to brilliantly direct an engaging story with new comers like Sushant and Amit Sadh who are vetrans in TV industry.

    The movie is based on Chetan Bhagat's Three Mistakes of My Life and revolves around some of the most polpular topics in India: Cricket, Politics on Religion, Gujarat Earthquakes, Garba Night Fun, Godhra Riot. The story takes you along the journey of friendship of three people over the years in Gujarat and how various events affect their relationship.

    Music of Amit trivedi is just too Good. Watch it for the story, acting, music and if you have had a bad fight with a close friend!!
