As I sit to watch Akarsh Khurana and Sumee Vyas’ second venture, In my head I was already ready for a laughter ride. The duo had earlier entertained the masses with The Viral Fever’s web series ‘Tripling’ . The ones who had their eyes hooked on-to the director – actor’s previous work can expect more from this comedy-drama. If you are the one who enjoys pun-intended and non-veg jokes, then it is a go-to movie.

The light heart serious-comedy starts off with our lit DJ Rakesh (Sumeet Vyas). The actor’s comic timing and screen space was one thing that left me and everyone amazed in the theater. After this movie, I admit being a fan of the actor (not die hard). After the LIT start, the movie inches towards the introduction of Udaan Airlines and the terrible state of its employees, who wish to get their unpaid dues. A revengeful yet kind-hearted staff of the airlines plan to HIGH-JACK their own flight.

The movie’s plot revolves around DJ Rakesh (Sumeet Vyas), his creepy co-passengers and the High Jackers. Apart from Sumeet, characters of Kumud Mishra and Taaruk Raina were the highlight of this stoner-comedy. Director Akarsh Khurana has done justice to every character of his film.

Speaking about the music, you will feel as if you were actually in a RAVE party. Akarsh has presented a serious issue in a funny and witty way!  Well, there were few offs in the movie viz no background score in some scenes and the lack of songs. Overall, the movie is a perfect pick for a lazy weekend.

This flight from Goa to Delhi is bound to tickle your funnybones. To know, if DJ Rakesh’ dream to be popular is fulfilled and whether the employees of Udaan airlines succeed in HIGH Jacking, you need to get out of your couch and head to the nearest cinema.

If asked to sum up the movie in one sentence, it will definitely be- Get ready to board a TRIPPY flight from Goa to Delhi!
