Anek star cast acting
With a typical Bollywood persona, Ayushmann Khurrana has tried to nail the the character Joshua. And to be honest, Ayushmann looks a bit different in this movie as compared to his previous movies.
Andrea Kevichüsa (Aido) has done well as a boxer, but she couldn’t perform up to the mark in the scenes which require some intense acting.
Kumud Mishra and Manoj Pahwa, two legends of Bollywood have performed very well as mastermind politicians.
Despite the language barrier, Loitongbham Dorendra Singh acted and communicated very well through his actions.
Anek movie Direction
Anubhav Sinha tried to touch a delicate topic of “North-East”, hence we all had a very high expectation. But, as the story progresses, the storytelling eventually becomes a lecture that might bore some people.
And on the other hand, the improper and disordered scenes can make the audience confused.
Is Anek Movie worth watching or not?
The regional dialect, folk melodies, background score, production design, visual tone, cinematography, and action sequences are all wonderful and appropriate for this film.
Although it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, as it also could be a controversial topic based film as ‘The Kashmir Files’. However, it is worthwhile to try since it forces you to consider equality and justice in the context of religion, caste and gender.
The story could have better and a more strong ending could be given. Not a great movie to watch though, but if you are an Ayushmann’s fan, you can definitely give it a go.
Anek movie Review: 2/5
