Movie Review

Rating :

Verdict : Rajat Kapoor’s ‘Ankhon Dekhi’ is one of the best offbeat movies released till date in Bollywood. So go and watch ___________________________________________________________________

Ankhon Dekhi, written and directed by stage actor and film director Rajat Kapoor and produced by Manish Mundra. The satirical movie features Sanjay Mishra and Rajat Kapoor in lead roles. Let's begin the warm hearted and thought provoking movie's story and review.


The complete story of Ankhon Dekhi revolves around Raje Bauji (Sanjay Mishra) who in his late fifties, living out a dull, but eventful life in a small house in old Delhi. He lives with his extended family, but a random incident brought a tremendous change his life in a dramatic way.

Bauji’s daughter  Rita (Sarao)  fell in love with Ajju (Namit Das) a boy of ill repute. When the fact unveiled before the family, they locked up the girl and go ahead to beat the willful boy. It is a funny old journey of this man who decides that he will only believe what he sees with his own eyes, else nothing.

Positive Points:-

The first thing we can start with is by saying that ‘Ankhon Dekhi’ is a beautiful film as the movie touches your heart at every point and brings you close to reality. Rajat Kapoor is one helluva actor and has definitely proven his mettle with his direction with this film.

Sanjay Mishra is outstanding as Bauji and his expressions and simplicity add in a little something extra to the film. Rajat Kapoor gives a commendable performance while Namit Das’ innocence and Maya Sarao’s bluntness combines to form a lovely twosome. Special mention however goes to Seema Pahwa who has stolen every scene she steps into.

Performance wise, there is no single artist in the flick who has over-done his character. The casting is a little more than superb and it wouldn’t hurt praising each and every one of them.

Negative points:-

Not that there is much to talk about in this section, but the movie might fail to attract a huge audiences because of its not-so-commercial set-up.

While there seemed to be no solid reason for the protagonist to take the step that he takes, the climax again is not that convincing. The first ten minutes of the film is quite routine and predictable.

Technical Points:-

Direction by Rajat Kapoor is brilliant and the movie is so close to realism that you can actually feel that you are in the movie. Set in Purani Dilli, the camera work very brilliantly covers the scenario of a lower-middle-class household and congested streets.

The editing is sharp and the songs fit aptly in the plot. Oscar winner Resul Pokutty’s sound design takes every scene to a new level.

Ankhon Dekhi is a 2014 film written and directed by Rajat Kapoor and Produced by Manish Mundra . The film stars Sanjay Mishra and Rajat Kapoor in lead roles.The movie released on the 21st of March,2014.
