Kai po che Movie Review, Kai po che Review: After feeding us on a heavy diet of romance, Bollywood filmmakers are now undoing our appetite for the mushy stuff, and veering us towards bromances. It did work, in the past, what with ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Dostana’ and ‘Rock On!!!’ all turning into blockbusters.

‘Kai Po Che’ delves into the life of three childhood friends as they chase their dreams in their rustic hometown of Ahmadabad at the beginning of the new millennium, only to find their ambitions derailed by terrifying earthquakes, religious intolerance and political manipulations. It plays devilish mayhem with their desires and rocks their incredibly intense bond.
Raj Kumar’s performance as the business minded, diligent Govind is the best in the film and my favourite. Well played! Amrita Puri as Vidya is adorable in her portrayal as a love struck student. From television to the big screen, both Amit Sadh and Sushant Singh Rajput, have made a fabulous transition with great performances.
So, by that rule, one-hit-movie-old director Abhishek Kapoor’s tale about brotherhood isn’t unusually novel, considering his ‘Rock On!!!’ explored the same dynamics. Yet, there’s something uniquely endearing and extremely poignant about ‘Kai Po Che’.
Abhishek’s adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s part-fictional, part-historical book titled ‘The 3 Mistakes of My Life’ is imposing no doubt, but, it’s his ingenious trait to alter the end, without sacrificing its spirit, that deserves immense applause.
Final Word : Kai Po Che, a victory cry in kite flying festivals, emerges triumphant. Don't Miss This Movie.
Kaipoche Movie Rating : 3.5/5
