Coming from a director who has given hard-hitting and serious films, including Natsamrat, Kaksparsh and even Vaastav, one is bound to be sceptical about watching a romantic drama directed by him. But with this musical, Mahesh Manjrekar has come out of his comfort zone and given a film that resonates well with the young, college-going generation.

It’s not a film that makes you think and makes no claims to being one. FU is a mass entertainer on the lines of Bollywood films in the same genre and it has its pros and cons. For starters, the film revolves around Thosar’s character Sahil and his group of friends, Makrand (Kirodian), Chilly (Pem), Billy (Pawandeep) and Gatlya (Manjrekar). All of them, like any college kid, go through the phases of college life – love, heartbreak, rivalry, rebellion etc. More often than not, they are pulled up for doing the wrong things but the kids are true at heart. So there’s no story in play here; it’s a pretty simple mix of situational actions and reactions.

To use a clichéd phrase, the film is fresh. Fresh because a film like this on such a grand scale (song sequences at foreign locales and all), is the first time that the viewers are getting a Karan Johar film-like experience in Marathi. Plus, there’s a bunch of promising youngsters who shine despite the limited work they have onscreen.

FU has its vices too. The endless songs get a bit too much and the lack of a proper story makes the film predictable. There are so many characters, all known faces, in the film that none of them get enough time to register on the viewers’ minds.

Manjrekar has given Akash a role that’s entirely different from Parshya in Sairat and the youngster tries his best to make the most of it. However, he needs some more polishing to shine bright. Vaidehi, Mayuresh and Shubham stand out. Surprisingly Satya, who has had a dismissible presence in his previous films, delivers well and makes a mark in some scenes.

FU is an entertainer and has to be watched that way. If you are expecting a serious subject that makes you think hard, your journey ends with the film’s title, which perhaps also happens to be Manjrekar’s answer to critics.
