REVIEW : Angrezi Medium litte bundle of emotions and entertainment.

This film is small package of emotion and laughter ride take it that way and this might work as its humor is quite often wacky and hilarious.

Angrezi medium is an emotional tale of a single parent, Champak Bansal (Irrfan), and his daughter Tarika (Myrah Dandekar as a cute kid and Radhika Madan as adult). Tarika, from childhood, wants to go abroad and this desire heightens when she knows that a scholarship to the best university in London is being offered by her college. The average student makes a Herculean effort and scores high and is selected, but a silly (actually) gaffe by her father makes her enraged principal (Meghan Malik) tear up her application and Champak vows that his daughter will go to London.
Alongside, other angles are worked in—rival sweet shops between brothers Champak and his brother Gopi (Deepak Dobriyal) and a legal feud over using the family name of Ghasiteram. Champak finds that he can send Tarika abroad, but there are complications when he takes the help of childhood friend Babloo (Ranvir Shorey), now based in London. But when Tarika, Champak and Gopi too fly together to London, bizarre complications ensue.

At the end of the day, the film is just one that warms the cockles of the heart, about how parents can do anything for their children, how blood relationship triumphs over business rivalries, about how children often do not realize that parents too need their support one day and so on. The social message here is not about the education of children but about the father-child bond.

The script is flawed, and the foundation is laid in the hilarious introduction to Champak’s character as a child—his trait as someone permanently confused is never justified in or really linked to all the later events!

The whole Babloo angle is absurdly depicted and how the brothers live in London as illegal immigrants and even return to India are all grossly illogical, given that they are not tycoons, and all these flaws even make us remember the dissipated virtues of “Hindi Medium”—unfair to a film that is standalone, actually.

Irrfan is, as usual, very good in the lifelike light and emotional moments, but he is completely overshadowed by the scintillating portrayal by Deepak Dobriyal. Radhika Madan is perfect, but in the second half, an erratic character graph brings down her performance to average. Dimple Kapadia and Ranvir Shorey are excellent in their cameos, and Kareena Kapoor Khan acts brilliantly as a London cop on duty!
Technically alright, the film has an excellent background score by Sachin-Jigar, though the songs sound nice only while on.
