Do you remember Yash Raj Films’ loudly announced film ‘Paani’? The same one which Shekhar Kapur was going to make and in which Sushant Singh Rajput was going to be the hero. Water is not going to become the world’s biggest problem, but it already has. India ranks 13th among one and a half dozen countries of the world facing water crisis. Due to indiscriminate construction of houses in cities, the water level of boring is decreasing every year. Even in posh colonies, disputes regarding water keep happening every day. And, ‘Fukrey 3’ alludes to this rapidly deepening water crisis in a very witty way. If you also try to think in this direction after watching the film, then the film is successful. These days, we don’t get to see any comedy films, so this film is definitely successful in making the audience laugh

The Fukrey Gang Enters Politics to Defeat Bholi Punjaban

The story of the film ‘Fukrey 3’ starts from where the story of ‘Fukrey Returns’ ended. The Fukrey gang had opened a Janata store, but that store does not run properly. Bholi Punjaban has become a gangster and is contesting elections. As is usually the case, a mafia agrees to financially manage the election of an innocent Punjabi because it sees a huge return on investment in the election. Bholi Punjaban has the most hope from Pandit ji. At the same time, Chucha becomes popular among the general public during election campaigns. Honey, Lali and Pandit feel that if Bholi wins the Punjaban elections, she may misuse her power. Therefore, to defeat Bholi Punjaban, all three prepare to field Chucha also in the election. But, politics is not an easy game. What happens after this is where the matter takes a real twist and turn.

Film ‘Fukrey 3’ director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba has tried to present the film well. The most subtle thing about Mrigdeep’s film style is that he prepares the outline of the comic scene and decorates it completely before bringing the punch. The comedy here comes with the buildup and that is why it works. Lamba has very cleverly adopted the style of overlaying Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Marka comedy on David Dhawan’s Marka comedy. And, in this he gets a lot of help from the writings of Vipul Vig. Although both of them were seen derailing a bit in the previous episode, but the third episode of the franchise is back on track. If it does not go towards a shorter line, this franchise can make a great run in the future also.

Pankaj Tripathi and Varun Sharma Shine in Fukrey 3

The film ‘Fukrey 3’ is completely the story of Pandit and Chucha. Pankaj Tripathi has impressed a lot with his natural acting in the role of Pandit. He speaks English punch lines with such ease that it makes one laugh. And, the expressions on his face during this time are the real acting. The film ‘Fukrey 3’ is an extension of the impact that Pankaj Tripathi had left in his previous film ‘OMG 2’. Varun Sharma has also given equal competition to Pankaj Tripathi in the role of Chucha. It is rare for a Hindi film to be so dependent on a comedian. This performance of Choocha reminds of stars like Johnny Walker, Mehmood. These are the artists in whose name films were sold. If Varun Sharma keeps getting good stories and good directors, then he can definitely reach this position.

Weak Links in Fukrey 3: Bholi Punjaban, Pulkit Samrat, and the Music

If somehow the rest of the actors in the film gradually bid farewell to the franchise and include new actors in it, then its freshness can remain intact. The character of Bholi Punjaban is now becoming boring. Although she still seems attractive in this character, her character does not seem to progress naturally in the story. Pulkit Samrat is also another weak link in the franchise. Pulkit’s character, who is almost out of mainstream cinema, also has its own weaknesses and his acting also no longer has the same interest. Yes, Manjot Singh’s work in the role of Lali is commendable.

This time there is another weak link in the film ‘Fukrey 3’ and that is the music of this film. For a franchise to keep growing along with the audience, its music needs to be haunting. But, songs like ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Fukrey Returns’ were not heard in this film. Apart from the song ‘Rabba’, there is no other song which leaves an impact on the audience. Yes, Abhishek Nailwal’s background score is good. Amalendu Chaudhary’s camera is true. Manan Ashwin Mehta’s compilation is a bit crude. But, overall, the film ‘Fukrey 3’ is the new child of this season of comedy whose humor will definitely make you laugh.
