LUCKBYCHANCE

I watched Zoya Akhtar's directorial debut Luck by Chance, the movie is an honest attempt about the film industry with its nitty ghitties, the casting directors, the starry tantrums, the ingrateful star towards his discoverer. Farhan Akhtar was as usual in his subtle but promising self, and it was an impressive act that he put up, Konkona sensharma was her usual self delivering her best but noteworthy was the costumes, she looked pretty with new experiments in her wardrope, quite liked it. Rishi Kapoor was amazing and so was Hrithik Roshan in a two bit role and Isha Sherwani in her mamma's doll character was quite convincing too. Dimple Kapadia held on her own and made most of her screentime. hordes of other actors from the film fraternity made the film drew the interest and added to the star quotient to the film.

Confidence and possitive thinking takes one to places but it is important to remember those from the summit who were there when you were no-one this was the subtle message. this movie was nothing out of the world to talk about according to me[ i may be wrong] but then the attempt was good and the outcome was quite enjoyable, with the witty oneliners and the cast was just right for everyone played their part to perfect. I quite enjoyed myself, so my verdict is a 3/5* a worthy effort by the debutant director, may be a worthy of a second time watch.
