‘Why Cheat India’ Mid-Ticket Review: Emraan Hashmi delivers his best performance till date

Directed By: Soumik Sen

Produced By: Bhushan Kumar, Kirshan Kumar, Atul Kasbekar, Emraan Hashmi

Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwantary

The first half of ‘Why Cheat India’ sees Emraan Hashmi deliver his best performance till date. Indeed, education is a king sized business in India and not enough stories explore the sense of competition and ambition that students (and their parents) face.

For every success story, there are several shattered dreams and depressed families. In this movie, there is Rakesh (Emraan Hashmi) who uses scamming tactics to get rich kids a seat in exchange for cash. He uses middle class brilliant students to give proxy exams. One such student is Sattu, whose initial reluctance is short lived. He starts enjoying the money, and gets into trouble ultimately.

As far as the performances are concerned, Emraan Hashmi looks every bit like a scam artist. His confidence is infectious even though he plays a negative character.

The second half is nicely poised and looks to be very entertaining.
