“SHUKRANU REVIEW :-u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYou must have seen the trailer by now, then you must have came to know the topic of Shukranu is very sensitive. This sensitive topic sound little lusty and uncomfortable in the first hearing but when you acknowledge the deepness of it, you realise how important it is for the young generation. And when it comes to the storytelling in cinematic proportions there has to enough dose of entertainment otherwise people wonu0026#39;t really enjoy and connect to it. Shukranu, thankfully has that perfect dose of entertainment and there is no way taking it down.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSet in Delhi/UP/Haryana, Shukranu is a comic take on the darkest phases of Indian democracy through the encounters of a would-be groom who is forcefully sterilized just days before his much-awaited marriage. The trailer itself spoils so many things of the script that there is nothing to hide or reveal. The central character Inder (Divyendu Sharma) who marries to Reema (Shweta Basu Prasad) feels awkward to reveal about his vesectomy. When things are finally going good between Inder and Reema, Inder is shattered by the news of Reema being pregnant. Inder who is living with his best friend finds a new girlfriend Aakriti played by Sheetal Thakur to forget the humiliation of his wifeu0026#39;s pregnancy and then things turn totally chaos between these 3.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTalking about the performance in the movie, Divyendu Sharma does total justice to his character. Shweta Basu Prasad portrays a regular housewife with conviction and she also looks beautiful in local traditional attire. Exactly opposite to her, there is glamorous Sheetal Thakur who looks super hot. Aakash Dabhade as Inderu0026#39;s friend is hilarious and his expressions were damn funny. Rest of the cast is supporting enough and make this chaos look real.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOne of the major victorious factor in Shukranu is itu0026#39;s screenplay which takes the storytelling on interesting level. Whether it is use of slapstick comedy or situational comedy, both works. It creates those laugh riot moments which we donu0026#39;t really see on digital platforms. Director Bishnu Dev Halder hits a sixer on yorker. This sensitive topic was quite risky to handle and would have been spoiled if had not been taken care of.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe sensitivity of the subject has to be uncompromised and effective and the humour level was to be kept. Guess what, Shukranu u0026#39;deliversu0026#39; both the things at the end. There is a predictable twist at the end and we might love to see a sequel. Overall, Shukranu is a sensitive topic told in entertaining way and you gotta catch it on ZEE5. Itu0026#39;s not a must watch kind of stuff but definitely fantastic one time watchable product for 18+ audience.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRating- 6/10*”
