Aankh Micholi Review {1.5/5} & Review Rating

AANKH MICHOLI is the story of two crazy families. Paro (Mrunal Thakur) lives in Hoshiarpur, Punjab with her father Navjot Singh (Paresh Rawal), brothers Harbhajan Singh (Abhishek Banerjee) and Yuvraj Singh (Sharman Joshi), Yuvraj's wife Billo (Divya Dutta) and nephew Goldie. Navjot has the habit of forgetting, Yuvraj is deaf and Harbhajan stammers. Paro, meanwhile, suffers from night blindness. While she is on a trip to Switzerland with her friends, Paro comes across Rohit Patel (Abhimanyu Dassani) and falls in love with him. But Rohit doesn't notice her. Once Paro is back, she is informed by her family that they have found a match for her for marriage. The guy turns out to be none other than Rohit. Paro, however, is not able to see him as Rohit arrives at her place at night, when she can't see anything. Paro's family, meanwhile, hasn't told the truth about Paro's night blindness to Rohit and his parents (Darshan Jariwala, Grusha Kapoor). Paro is asked to pretend that there's no issue with her vision. Billo, however, is determined to mess things up, especially after she learns that even she wasn't told about Yuvraj's deafness before marriage. But that's not all. Rohit is also hiding a big secret. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

The story is promising and in the right hands, this would have been a laugh-a-minute-riot. The screenplay is not upto the mark and has limited humour. The dialogues are funny in places.

Umesh Shukla's direction fails to do justice to the plot at hand. The beginning portions are shaky. Thankfully, the film gets watchable once Rohit comes to see Paro. The intermission point has an unexpected twist and works well. Post-interval, the film suffers as the comic scenes are not that effective. And though one doesn't have to look for logic in such films, yet the absurdities will astonish viewers. This is especially true in the climax. It won't be a surprise if the serious scene in the end elicits more laughs than the scenes which are actually meant to be funny!

Abhimanyu Dassani is just decent at best. Mrunal Thakur has a superb screen presence and tries to rise above the substandard script. Paresh Rawal is dependable but looks a bit off in the initial scenes. Divya Dutta is too good and the best performer in the film. Sharman Joshi and Abhishek Banerjee are okay. Darshan Jariwala and Grusha Kapoor are passable. Vijay Raaz (Bhatti) tries his best to raise laughs.

Sachin-Jigar's music is forgettable. The title song registers but 'Kaleja Kad Ke', 'Ve Dholna' and 'Shaadi Dope Hai' are poor. Sachin-Jigar's background score is in sync with the film's mood.

Sameer Arya's cinematography is neat. Preeti Sharma's costumes are glamorous yet realistic. Parul Bose's production design is theatrical. Steven Bernard's editing is fine.

On the whole, AANKH MICHOLI fails to induce laughs and is laced with a very bad climax. A film like this would be ideal for TV viewing and won’t stand a chance on the big screen.
