When Jia (Shivani Pandey), a stubborn and spoilt daughter of a rich NRI settled in the US, runs back to India, she falls in love with Rishabh (Raj Jatania), who himself is looking to get married. While their love grows into marriage in no time, the real action starts when Jia father Mr Mehta (Tiku Talsania) follows her daughter back to India. Will Jia be able to convince her father about her love, will Mr Mehta like Rishabh, and what if Mr Mehta’s past love comes right at their doorsteps?
Kaik Karne Yaar is one of the few Gujarati comedy films, in recent times, that will actually make you laugh. And that’s where the film comes out as a winner. Debutante director Kabir Jani manages to keep the humour alive throughout the film with some really well done situational comic scenes. With a starcast that boasts of actors like Tiku Talsania and Aroona Irani, the film ticks most boxes when it comes to entertainment. But the story, which is on the lines of Houseful like situations of confusion of who is married to whom, is the actual winner. There is no forced humour, except for a few scenes, especially the one with a gay character. That could have been done better.
When it comes to acting, most actors have done their job sincerely and that reflects in the film. Even when all six characters are present on screen, their understanding of the script and their individual roles is visible. While Tiku Talsania and Aroona Irani’s sizzling chemistry and their love story surely is the highlight of the film, Yatin Parmar, Raj Jatania, Dhvani Trivedi and Shivani Pandey have also done their bit well. With Shivani and Raj’s pair in the lead manage to create some romantic and funny moments, it’s the second lead pair of Chiman (Yatin Parmar) and Ramila (Dhvani Trivedi) that takes the cake when it comes to comic timing. Not only have the two actors done complete justice to their characters, but they have also managed to capture the audience attention with their perfect acting chops.
And is it goes, with all comedy and romantic movies, music in Kaik Karne Yaar too plays a vital role. And music composer duo Viral and Lavan have surely added to the film with good music. Two romantic numbers Padi Najar and Main Daldu Didhu are enjoyable songs. But it’s the foot thumping number Tera Thumka that will continue to play long after you leave the theater.
Overall, Kaik Karne Yaar is a fun film. It has its moments and will surely keep the audience entertained. You might feel at few places in the second half that the story is being stretched, but it is only a small hiccup in larger scheme of things.
