Chitkabrey was advertised as the boldest hindi film till date. I have to disagree with that after sitting through this movie, all I can say is that its a anovel concept which had a lot of scope to shock and to induse awe but souless performences backed by some unimaginative writing has made it an ordinary fare. A movie like Chitkabrey is not made everyday. Its anovel concept and it does raise some very important social issues like, ragging, husband wife relationship, trust, and above all the lines that we need to draw in our lives to remain within our limits. The movie revolves around a bunch of college buddies who are invited to a party one fine day. They have no clue to who was the host, but a chance at a reunion proves to much to be missed. Once in the party, the friends realise that tyhey may have come to the party on thei wish but might require, the permission ofanother person to leave the premises. A somebody to whome they have done a world of wrongs.
The story is novel and the themes relevant, but the problem lies in the execution. With every scene the movie starts getting a tad bit boring. The charecters are unable to draw the attention of the viewers and are neither able to make us care or even slightly anxious about what is to become of them. Some titilating scenes are put in between to make us stand up and take notice but unfortunately, titilation without a solid background is like a gas baloon without gas…..
On the performence front, apart from Ravi Kissen no one is able to make a mark. Ravi is the sole charecter who actually tries to hold the narrative but alas, his spirited performence is not enough to hold the lackluster movie together. Overall, chitkarbrey is a huge dissapointment and a great oppurtunity missed….
