While the whole country is still in awe of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’, there’s a small film that will be hitting the screens this Friday titled ‘Kuldip Patwal: I Didn’t Do It!’. The movie stars Deepak Dobriyal, Raima Sen, Parvin Dabas, Priyanka Setia and Gulshan Devaiah. With such a talented cast we had expected this film to be at least good if not great, but this one just turned out to be yawn fest.
The movie starts with a rally where Chief Minister Varun Chadha (Parvin) is shot dead, and Kuldip Patwal (Deepak) is arrested for killing the CM. Well, Kuldip claims that he doesn’t remember anything and he has not killed the CM. Then starts courtroom sessions where CM’s wife Simrat Chadha (Raima) is the prosecution lawyer and advocate Parduman Shahpuri (Gulshan) is the defence lawyer.
‘Kuldip Patwal: I Didn’t Do It!’ clearly had potential to be a good film, but then the weak screenplay and bad narration makes this film one of the worst films that we have recently seen. Remy Kohli’s directorial is simply bad. While watching the movie I was literally questioning the fact that what was the aim to make this film because at a point you might feel it’s trying to show how changes in the system affects the common man, but then the confusing narration takes the movie to a totally different tangent.
The only good thing about the movie are the performances. Gulshan Devaiah is simply outstanding in the film. Deepak Dobriyal is also quite good, and Parvin Dabas leaves a mark. Talking about actresses Priyanka Setia and Raima Sen, both are really bad. The latter looked like she is forcefully doing the film and was totally disinterested.
Overall, ‘Kuldip Patwal: I Didn’t Do It!’ is a film that actually doesn’t deserve your attention. Just skip this one, and better watch ‘Padmaavat’ again this weekend.
