Vicky Velingkar: Movie Assessment – It’s Time To Remedy A Thriller
Verdict: A never-seen-before idea that’s executed properly.
Firebrand Sonalee Kulkarni is slaying it first with Hirkani and now with Vicky Velingkar. Directed by Saurabh Varma, this crime thriller seems to be attention-grabbing and we had been positively excited.
What’s Vicky Velingkar About:
Our titular character Vicky Velingkar (Sonalee Kulkarni) is an artist who creates comedian books for a dwelling. She has misplaced her dad and mom and lives along with her PUBG-vedi grandmother, who aspires to get to Crown degree. Cool Grandma Velingkar (Rama Joshi) takes quite a lot of potshots at Vicky for shirking duties and being lazy, general. Someday Vicky receives an nameless reward – a watch – and earlier than she will be able to determine who gave it, she will get a cellphone name from Inspector Salunkhe (Kettan Singh). Seems her scientist good friend Shrushti (Vanita Kharat) has dedicated suicide and the police need Vicky to return to her flat instantly. However Vicky smells foul play when she notices that her laptop computer is lacking. With the assistance of her hacker good friend Fortunate (Sangram Samel), Vicky tries to resolve this. Nonetheless, time is a messy factor and Vicky is caught in an inexplicable time loop. It’s on Vicky to use her thoughts and determine what within the identify of blazing tomatoes is occurring to her.
The idea of a time loop has been a difficult trope, because the yardstick for that is the Invoice Murray starring cult traditional Groundhog Day. Whereas Vicky Vielingkar is a thriller-crime-mystery, it makes try at executing this idea. Proper from Vicky’s frustration to her resolve in the direction of the top to the logic behind the loop, the film tries its greatest to clarify every part with out loopholes. You’re simply as confused as Vicky in the beginning after which issues begin getting clearer. The idea is tremendous attention-grabbing and nothing like this has ever been carried out in Marathi cinema earlier than, which provides the plot an unique high quality. Sonalee Kulkarni and Spruha Joshi give their greatest to their roles and are spectacular. Rama Joshi is cute because the cool aaji. Kettan Singh, who performs Inspector Salunkhe, does an important job. Not solely is his dialogue supply spectacular, but in addition his efficiency appears pure and simple. Sure leap scares do their job fairly properly.
What Might’ve Been Higher:
Vicky Velingkar takes time to get into the groove, as the primary half spends a substantial quantity of screentime explaining the idea. The characters appear a little bit superficial and underwritten.
Why You Ought to Watch:
After Hirkani, that is actress Sonalee Kulkarni’s second titular function and he or she is a champ. The film works underneath an intriguing, never-seen-before premise in Marathi cinema and makes for an amusing one-time watch.
