Atkan Chatkan Review

atkan chatkan review

Music doesn’t know class or boundaries. Those who have the talent, Will find themselves at the level of those that are already succesful. Atkan Chatkan sells you the idea, That dreams do not correlate with practicality. 

And realism does not have any effect on Talent. If a person has the ability and mindset, He could conquer anything. Atkan Chatkan is a simple and predictable story. In the whole movie, You won’t feel like something is new. The over-simplistic approach makes the two-hour-long movie, Boring.

Shiv Hare has tried to create sympathy for Guddu; Because he has an abusive parent, Bullied by other kids. No opportunity in life. It’s okay, For some time. But afterward, the whole sympathy becomes a 1960 Cliche. Apart, From the poverty background film. Atkan Chatkan differentiates itself with its strong music.

It is the music that makes the film watchable; And does not feel just poverty and sum-dog millionaire arenas. The movie has shown the story of upliftment from talent, Though, It was not perfect. The Visual appeal of the movie is good, But some scenes are just repetitive. The Screenplay and Direction are something you can wave off. It’s a good effort, Not the best. If you have time you can watch this movie.
