Motichoor Chaknachoor Story
The film opens to a girl named Annie who lives in Bhopal and only has one ambition in life- to marry and settle in abroad. Annie, perhaps is the anglicized version of ‘Anita’. She doesn’t have any other interests and ambitions except getting a visa stamp on her passport.
On the other hand, Pushpinder Tyagi is a 36-year old man who has returned home from Dubai for a break. Due to his age, he thinks it is high time that he gets married. He is so desperate to get hitched that at one moment he says,” Gori ho, moti ho, nati ho, jaisi bhi ho chalegi bas ladki honi chahiye.”
Pushpinder, whilst searching for a bride for himself meets Annie. Annie also comes to know that his neighbour, Pushpinder works as an accountant in Dubai. She starts seeing him as her prospective partner. After a couple of meetings between them and their respective families, both of them get married.
After her marriage, Annie comes to know that Pushpinder has been fired from his job, which leaves her flabbergasted. The story unfolds with certain twists in the plots but ends in a predictable manner.
Motichoor Chaknachoor Review
The film is a comical treat. The small town setup of the film with mollahs, streets, houses is upto the mark. There are scenes in the film that are genuinely very funny. The film seems a little bit dragged after the couple’s marriage.
The story of the film has an uncanny resemblance with other small town stories made in Bollywood. But what makes this film stand out is the way in which it deals with social taboo like dowry.
Talking about the performances, Nawazuddin Siddiqui who portrays the role of Pushpinder Tyagi delivers effortless performance. But the film’s trump card is Athiya Shetty who looks comfortable in her role, has a captivating presence and great knack for comedy. There’s a lot of wordplays which instils humour in the film.
Motichoor Chaknachoor is not just a comedy film, as it also lays emphasis on modern day-concept of transactional marriage and romance. It is quite clear that Annie doesn’t love Pushpinder, that she’s just interested in going to Dubai.
On the other hand, Pushpinder also knows that she being young and an attractive lady is way out of his league. Despite all of this, they are holding hands, impressing each other- doing everything that one does in the pretence to love someone. The story slowly and gradually becomes darker and grittier as reaches towards the climax. But even while slipping up, it manages to keep the humour quotient high.
Overall, the film is quite predictable, but its funny dialogues and great performances delivered by the actors make the film entertaining and worth watching. So, do book tickets for the film and rush to theatres near you to watch Motichoor Chaknachoor.
