Number crunching comes naturally to Gujaratis. It is in fact a general perception about Gujaratis, who are very good at setting up ventures and taking their ventures to the globe that the movie Aapne To Dhirubhai brings to the fore. Not all Gujaratis have that knack and not everyone can become a billionaire is what the movie says through the perspective of Dhirendra aka Dhirubhai played by Vrajesh Hirjee. The 30 year old management student Dhirubhai, dreams of making it big in the world of business — and yes, it is not dhandho (the Gujarati word for business) which sounds down market — even though his father (played by Ashish Bhatt) is fully convinced that his son will not be able to cope up with the challenges that a venture makes one face. A very happy-go-lucky Dhirubhai goes to college everyday religiously, not letting criticism of his past failures in exams affect his happy state of mind and has a thickest of friend in Ritesh Mobh, who likes everything that his dear friend Dhirubhai says and does. The twist happens on one such day in college after the management professor throws Dhirubhai out of the class politely when the aspiring Dhirubhai gives a hilarious lecture to the class on how Dhirubhai Ambani became a name to reckon with that lead to the chain of events. In order to impress the pretty girl (played by Jayaka Yagnik), who he is in love with, Dhirubhai accepts a challenge of setting up a profitable venture in a time frame frame of one year, which leaves his father wide eyed and shake his head in disbelief. Goaded by his friend, Dhirubhai sets up one venture after another, starting from a provision store to setting up a mill, taking aspiration from Dhirubhai Ambani's life. As luck would have it, every move of his backfires. The sweetest part of the movie is Morli Patel as the loving and caring mother of Dhiurubahi, who finds anything that her son says and does very charming. Actor Ashish Bhatt fills up the screen with a wonderful performance as he indulges in citing some famous Gujarati anecdotes to his son. Jayaka Yagnik comes across as a charmer with her subtle yet emphatic screen presence. Vrajesh Hirjee, as usual, is at his comic best. The surprise package of the film is Ritesh Mobh, who is outstanding with his spontaneity. Bhakti Rathod adds the needed tinge of glam and of course the angle of deceit to the whole story. Director Haritrushi Purohit's meticulously worked on the detailing part on how a Gujarati kitchen is always spic and how spruced is a Gujarati home. The dialogues are outstanding examples of Gujarati wit and satire. The music is melodious and mint fresh. The pace of the movie is quick. The film scores an ace with its fine treatment and camera aesthetics. A big thumbs up for picture quality and cinematography. Overall a good mode of unwinding with family and popcorn.
