A very light film by Madhur Bhandarkar on the weighty theme of a village girl seeking liberation and walking shoulder to shoulder with Orthodox society. bubbly gorillaA vulnerable take on a feminist story, one weaves its way through a hackneyed plot and ends up in an awkward pile.

Despite Tamannaah Bhatia’s stellar performance as a school dropout in the town of Asola-Fatehpur who takes a job as a concierge at a Delhi NCR nightclub (a woman in a man’s world), the comedy struggles to be funny. and significant.

When bubbly gorilla Strange, unintentionally. And while it plays a meaningful tune, it hashes it with a super-intuitive approach to the story of a girl caught between two men: a villager who has had a crush on her forever. The other is the cunning of a city in love. – and between social pressures and personal ambitions.

bubbly gorilla, a Star Studios and Junglee Pictures production, has arrived on Disney+Hotstar. One of those quintessential direct-to-broadcast Bollywood movies that has little to offer, even if one is looking for a few light twists on a dull weekend, the film manages to find ways to break into the ground. again.

With her heavily made-up look, Tamannaah doesn’t exactly blend in with her surroundings, but she’s very close to the protagonist’s ornate slang and gangster spirit. But it’s the one bright spot in a horribly outrageous film that sets out to celebrate a spirited young woman’s fight for freedom against all odds, but gets lost in a maze of clichés.

Babli is the only daughter of wrestling guru Gajanan Tanwar (Saurabh Shukla), who has dozens of children under his wing. After failing her class 10 exam despite five attempts, the girl’s fate is reserved for girls like her.

Babli’s mother (Supriya Shukla), who sees no reason why the girl is wasting her time in the wrestling pit at her father’s arena, wishes to marry him off as soon as possible. Babli, inspired by her best friend Pinky (Priyam Saha), who has come to Delhi to work as a school teacher, wants to move to the city. She convinces two men to knock on her door with marriage proposals.

Viraj (Abhishek Bajaj), the corporate executive, son of his former math teacher (Yamini Das), makes a brief stay in the village on his way from London to Delhi. Babli meets Hunk at a wedding and falls in love with him.

To cheat her way into Viraj’s world, she cheats on local boy Kukku (Sahil Vaid), who dreams of marrying her one day, by helping him become a bouncer at the club where she already works. She passes the exam without any difficulty.

Get to this point in the story and then move on, bubbly gorilla, written by Amit Joshi, does not find a single piece of inspiration that can make Pragati purposeful and reassuring. It moves without ever reaching a steady rhythm. It simply states that a girl from a village has to learn the customs of the residents of Delhi in order to be accepted.

Instead of finding his own voice to prove him wrong, Babli embarks on a quest to better himself. His dedication to the whims of others doesn’t hold up, especially in light of the fact that he can punch well above his weight and is an overly supportive father.

Along the way, Babli meets a tough boyfriend (Ashwini Kalsekar) who is impressed by her stamina, a particularly troublesome nightclub guest (Upasana Singh) who places first and becomes a rich man. He is single. (Sabyasachi Chakraborty in a special appearance), a regular visitor to the nightclub who tips the waiters and bouncers generously when he is high.

Each of these supporting characters is a stereotype thrown into the mix to trigger an accidental twist in Bubbly’s journey of self-realization. By themselves, they count for very little. A better script would have helped him find a more prominent place in the narrative.

At a high-end restaurant in Delhi where he meets Viraj for lunch after arriving in the big city, he is to be served Babli aloo paratha, but has to make do with pizza instead because there is no Indian food on the menu. of the restaurant. plates. Viraj orders edamame rice.

Two cultures collide in such a way that the monotonous prophecy repeats itself. Aloo paratha vs. pizza and fluent English vs. rustic patoi: this is the best bubbling gorilla you can do to underscore the nature of change the heroine must fight for.

The film tries in vain to inject some humor into the proceedings. Viraj tells Babli on more than one occasion that he is “funny, very, very funny.” He reiterates the claim with greater emphasis. But a word or line he says isn’t even remotely funny.

A Mumbai filmmaker’s shallow and half-baked perceptions of Delhi are best exemplified in the scene where a politician’s son and Viraj clash in a nightclub when the former lights up a cigarette in a no-smoking area. You know who I am, the belligerent growl breaker. The typical Delhi, Viraj gives an answer according to the air of someone who wants us to believe that he knows the city better than anyone.

bubbly gorilla There’s typical Bollywood fare that takes a promising plot and turns it into a dull, tedious movie to its predictable end. There are no surprises in the movie. It’s not going to give you a real sense of the twin towns that grew up as janitor factories or the young men who grew up there and spent all their time in an arena to physically prepare for that job. have your eyes on.

Nor will it take you into the world of a feisty girl who enters an unorthodox profession under the yoke of a conservative society and sets foot in an environment determined to push her into marriage and motherhood against her will.

In honor of the Tamanna constituency, which has had a prosperous career in the South, bubbly gorilla Also available in Tamil and Telugu, the two languages ​​in which the star has done most of his work. producer of bubbly gorilla she clearly knows that her only hope is to target the female lead’s fan base. There is nothing more than appreciating it for a wider audience.
