It is all in the past when viewers had to suppress their excitement until the first show to know about a film. But now with the emergence of digital platforms, the audience doesn’t have to hold themselves back till the afternoon for the first review and hence this was proved with Gulabo Sitabo that hit the web, on Amazon Prime, and not theatres on Friday, June 12.
As Republic World reports, netizens and celebrities got fixed to their screens at midnight and within two hours, reviews of Gulabo Sitabo started surfacing all over social media. However, the reactions are mixed. Helmed by Shoojit Sircar, the Ayushmann-Amitabh starrer got positive as well as negative reviews from netizens.
One section of the Twitterati described the plot of the movie as ‘fresh’ and a netizen even wrote that he couldn’t ask more for a better version of these characters. The direction, screenplay and its ‘wicked humour’ of the netizens. ‘ grabbed attention nteresting’, ‘fantastic’, ‘worth watching’ were commonly recorded audience responses.
On the other hand, another section depicted the movie as ‘boring’. One of them even wrote that he dozed off during the movie and many were left to wonder what the movie was trying to convey. Several of them predicted that the film might not have fared well had it released in theatres.
To add more, the people who did not like the film were impressed by Big B’s flawless performance and Ayushamnn’s considerable finesse and the other members of the cast were also poured with praises.
The story revolves around the equation between a tenant and the landlord, and the latter employing all possible tactics to get rid of the former from his property. The film is set in Lucknow and involves their fun-filled digs at each other. Gulabo Sitabo also stars Vijay Raaz and Brijendra Kala among others.
#GulaboSitabo It’s been 3 hours since I have completed watching this movie. But still I’m not over it. Because of the each characters in the movie. These kind of characters are cake walk for Mr Bachchan and Ayushman. In which they were brilliant.
