Firangi 2017: Movie Review as Kapil Sharma Plays the role of one happy and simple gaao-wala, Mangatram, who wants everyone to be happy and smiling, Kapil Sharma did justice to his forte of being funny and having a commendable sense of humor.
The character of Mangatram is very lovely, cute and respectable.
Firangi is a plot set-up of a village fool Mangatram’s (Kapil Sharma) cute love tale, where he is one innocent man (Mangatram) who gets a job and starts earning money.
Meanwhile, Mangatram does a few mistakes and tries to fix them throughout. But he fails to make things better and eventually puts his own life in danger to undo those blunders. The hero makes all his effort in undoing his mistakes is just to marry the girl he is in love with, Sargi (Ishita). Monica Gill is playing the character of a good woman in the white men’s camp who helps the hero in his attempt of all the correction.
The film is written by none other than Rajiv Dhingra who has also directed the film, the story may not sound amazing and appealing to you, but it has the ability of a fresh, entertainment-filled film. Nevertheless, the very-very monotonous and tiresome storyline, an inconsistent screenplay make it a remarkably mind-numbing film.
Mangatram is shown here to be an innocent and very simple person, but he is also shown clever enough to trick the villagers and make ways to manipulate all of them and his British workers, Mark Daniels (Edward Sonnenblick). Daniels is a British state official who loves to have it all according to the rules and associates the local king to ensure the creamlike functioning of the British system. He also falls in love with the king’s daughter and is up to kill people for her.
Ishita Dutta is playing Mangatram’s beloved, Sargi in the film, is not needed to do much anything but smile and make faces at Kapil Sharma. Rajesh Sharma is playing Sargi’s dad in the film, a smith who is more concerned about his house and family than the freedom fight. Inaamul Haq plays Kapil’s a.k.a Mangu’s close friend and trust us his the character is such a misuse of his skill. He is only reckoned to play antics in the film.
About the songs in the movie, Firangi:
The title song is fine on the go due to Sunidhi Chauhan’s singing skill, the firmly changing sound, from hearty folk to a punchy EDM and eventually ballroom dance!
Oye Firangi | Firangi | Kapil Sharma & Ishita Dutta | Sunidhi Chauhan
Jyoti Nooran and Daler Mehndi make statements with their amazingly active folk numbers, Sajna sohne jiha and Tu jit jawna, respectively; both are very foot-tapping! That musical spirit leads Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s melody Sahiba russ gayiya too, while Jatinder manages even the item number thing, Gulbadan with panache, introducing in it a Viju ‘Tu cheez badi hai’ Shah type vibe. Nice folk tunes with a greatly fine edge.
