Movie: Milan Talkies 

Milan Talkies Movie Cast: Ali Faizal, Shraddha Srinath, Ashutosh Rana, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sanjai Mishra 

Milan Talkies Movie Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia

Milan Talkies Movie Ratings: 3/5

Tigmanshu Dhulia who earlier directed movies from various genres fares well at his attempt to make the romantic drama as he has smartly used the Bollywood masala movie formula for ideal results. The movie which set against the backdrop of the old-world charm is an ode to single-screen cinema and to the filmy public. But the movie is marred by predictability and few unrealistic and over-the-top scenes.

Speaking of the plot, the first few minutes into the movie and a sense of deja vu will surely strike you as the story is about a boy meets a girl and are apart because of goons and parents and how they reunite is what we have seen in many movies. So, Tigmanshu who said that the movie will showcase unconventional and unique love story completely fails to deliver it. Apart from the love story, there are a lot of things going on with Dhulia giving a shout out to several social messages such as rampant exam cheating in small towns among others.

Ali Fazal's role mirrors every girl's desired boyfriend who loves his girlfriend whole-heartedly and would do anything to be with her. The major takeaway is Dhulia himself who plays Fazal's cool filmy dad. His role is different from what he has played in the past and it is one of the major highlights of the movie.  

Keeping the misses aside, right from crackling chemistry of Ali and Shraddha to funny scenes, there are a good number of moments to treasure. Tigmanshu gets full marks for the casting as the same is a triumph for the makers. Along with the female and male leads, the supporting cast of the movie which includes Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Mishra, Sikander Kher among others have really enhanced the movie with their terrific performances. 

Despite a predictable plot, it impresses because of good dialogues, amazing cast, and cinematography. In a nutshell, the movie has all the elements of a commercial movie with this year's Holi anthem in it. So, yes it is a staple masala flick and fans of such movies can go for it. But those who are not a fan of romantic dramas should give it a miss.
