“Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai?” It seems that it has been born of an idea of one line that stretches. For more than two hours with some decent shows as the only saving mercy.
When Sintoo (Jesse Gill) is left high and withered by his love:
Sonam (Surbhi Joti), he writes his disappointment on paper money. The note went viral, triggering a series of events in Sintoo and Sonam’s. Who lives that ranged from the odd to the very random.
The Rs 10 note with the Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai line went viral a few years ago. By feeding memes on the internet. The bizarre trend also made headlines across the country. As everyone wonders who Sonam Gupta is and what leads. To the fierce accusations by this disgruntled lover. Screenwriter and director Saurabh Tyagi tries to capitalize on this viral sensation by weaving a fictional story around him.
This attempt to wrap the entire story around one familiar line is so compelling. That it pops up in every frame of this crumbling film. With his quirky and powerful characters representing countless cliches of typical “small town thinking”. This film also teaches, among other things, how to think broadly to grow up.
Sintoo, like almost every other aimless young man in town, is obsessed with Sonam Gupta:
Who is furious, right, mad and leaves his league. For the first hour or so, the film spins around. Trying to set the premise so that the film’s title somehow fits the plot. The only fun you can have here is witnessing the characters’ eccentricities and the simple environment outside the city. It was a pleasure to see the late veteran actor Sureha Sikri master his craft one last time.
The film hero Jesse Gill is well-chosen for the gullible Sintoo. Spoiled by his irrational mother and surrounded by useless friends. Despite the apparent flaws in the writing, Jesse makes Sintoo fun and easy to root. The same goes for Surbhi Jyoti, who plays the complex and illegible character Sonam with confidence and passion. As in most similar films, there are many actors with characters. And Thrust gets some aces to get the job done. These include Atul Srivastava, Vibha Chhibber, and Bijendra Kala. Vijay Raaz repeatedly disappoints.
Funny dialogues that try to act like one witty sentence don’t even spark a relaxed smile of relief.
Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai’s script refuses to budge and recycles the emotions that have been driven. The film often uses the song to emphasize one-dimensional romantic equivalences. Rather than the arcs or points of stroke of exciting characters. This film is inspired not only by many small-town stories. Which is based on the premise of people taking the time to express their feelings.
But all of these actors cater to a feeble script that tries to handle too many questions. And often leaves unexplained holes in the story. And the biggest problem is that it’s a comedy, but last but not least, it’s kind of funny. The music is average. “Kya Meri Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai?”
Director Saurabh Tyagi fails to emphasize the charm of a small-town love story. And the nuances of a relationship that begins with the premise of immortality. He uses characters so that all actions must be around them. And they realize this from an objective point of view. As opposed to life, which has no instructions for reaction. The film’s cinematography is stuck in time. And barely looks modern with ambiguous expert shots. And ambient lighting that doesn’t emphasize or enhance the emotion in any way.
