Waah Zindagi Movie Review
Producer-director Dinesh S Yadav of the movie ‘Wah Zindagi’ has tried to delve into an interesting subject with a satirical touch of dark comedy. But due to the weakness of the writing and the script, they have not been successful. However, many serious problems such as child marriage, water scarcity, career choice problems faced by students, and China’s industrial strategy are very simply understood by incorporating them into its history. The film makes a serious comment on the Indian mindset. It is up to people to take a stand and make the changes they want to see around them. Be it a career option or the purchase of a foreign product. Since most of the characters in this movie are Rajasthani, Suryapal Singh, Ruhin, and Kamal Malviya’s dialogue looks better.
When it comes to the acting of the cast, actor Naveen Kasturia seems to be able to carry the entire film on his shoulders. Naveen’s character, Ashoka, very simply conveys the message of motivating people to promote and produce local products rather than foreign products. Not only this, he has strong support from veteran actors like Vijay Raj, Sanjay Mishra, and Manoj Joshi. However, its screen space is very less, if it were more, the film would have benefited a lot. Plabita Borthakur has given a solid performance as Reena, Ashok’s wife and girlfriend. Lalit Sharma seems to be successful in making people laugh with her comedy. Sanjay Mishra provides an excellent performance in the character of Ashok’s grandfather, Ramkaran. Keep inspiring her with your stories.
Speaking of the technical side of the movie, the movie could have been improved by improving the cinematography and editing. Parag Chhabra’s music blends well with the story and the script. Some soundtracks like ‘Bhari Bhaari’, ‘Zindadi’ and ‘Nano’ are melodious. Overall ‘Wah Zindagi’ is an interesting movie with a great soundtrack. Even though the script seems to address several issues, in the end it all ends up on a single track. This movie can be seen once.
