Montu, a PT Master from such a semi-government-funded institution whose doing PT is merely a profession, has an amazing adventure in Chhalaang. Montu is compelled to do something he’s ever done before: TEACH. When situations put everyone he cares about in jeopardy, particularly his beloved Neelu, The video playfully highlights the importance of Sports Education in the school syllabus throughout his tour.
Sports Education is a highly significant issue that requires the complete attention of a country’s citizens. Cinema has produced sports-based films in a variety of methods, some of which have succeeded while others have struggled to do so. Both co-writer Luv Ranjan or director Hansal Mehta had tackled such a genre before. Hansal directs Rajkummar Rao, who plays the character role in the movie, for the very first moment in a lighthearted picture in their six collaborations.
When it comes to performances, Rajkummar Rao never disappoints, and his chemistry with Hansal is evident. We’ve watched Rao in some of his greatest dramatic and demanding performances in the Hansal films, so this should have been a piece of cake. That was, indeed, the case!
Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub has proven his acting skills on several occasions, but he might have produced something greater.
Nushrratt Bharuccha is by far the most unexpected and pleasant performer in Chhalaang. We have had to give credit to Luv Ranjan for creating something unique again for actors, as well as Nushrratt for putting Hansal’s vision to life. We’re familiar with the ensemble players, and we believe they won’t let us down.
Saurabh Shukla, Satish Kaushik, Ila Arun, and Baljinder Kaur all receive plenty of screen time and have sharp dialogues, making them a visual delight.
Hansal Mehta stepped out of his normal routine with Chhalaang, but it’s a significant leap from his previous film Scam 1992. Simran, the filmmaker’s most recent picture in the humorous genre, fails to create an impression. Hansal, on the other hand, manages to generate magic onstage while collaborating with Rajkummar Rao. Yet Chhalaang is softer than just that, demonstrating that now the filmmaker also can produce a rom-com as well as a family movie with plenty of material and star power.
Several movies including Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Dangal, and Saand Ki Aankh would come to mind after watching Chhalaang. Chhalaang is among the few films in which a romcom takes the form of a sports drama. However, it retains its individuality, making it a film to be admired.
