Jagran Rating: (Average)

Story line: Ferrari Ki Sawaari is tribute to all the young boys who spend countless hours, dreaming of the day when they can wield the bat with the same passion as the master blaster does. The film takes us into the life of a Parsi middle class family comprising three generation of men, Grandpa Deboo or Mota baba (Boman Irani), his son Rustom (Sharman Joshi) and third one is Kayo (Ritvik Sahore), 12 years old son of Rustam. While Mota Baba, a former Ranji player who perpetually plopped in front of the TV set, Rusi or Rustam is an ethically upright government clerk. The youngest family member budding cricketer Kayo, avid fan of Sachin Tendulkar has a dream to play in Lords. Destiny gives him a chance to make it to the Lords Stadium in London for which he would need hefty coaching fees. Story takes a hilarious turn when Rustom steals Sachin Tendulkar's Ferrari to fulfill his son’s needs. In a sentence, the film is about Rustom and Mota Baba’s journey in trying to fund Kayo’s cricket camp at the Lords.

Thumbs up: Director Rajesh Mapuskar makes a sparkling and soulful debut with this movie. He deserves kudos for capturing the film’s mood in a simplistic way, devoid of forced complications. While in one scene the screen play tickles your funny bones, you may get a lump in your throat in the very next scene. The dialogues are simple though delivers solid punch.

Boman Irani as Deboo/Motey Pappa, is, as always, impeccable. Sharman is good on his part. Child actor Ritvik Sahore leaves his viewers thoroughly enthralled with his performance. Cinematography and editing add little to the experience of watching Ferrari ki Sawaari. Vidya Balan’s Lavani number is a must watch in this film.

Thumbs down: At a run time of almost two and a half hours, the film tends to lose steam a couple of times. As the movie nears the intermission it becomes bit boring. Songs and background score cannot make it to the top charts.

Ferari Ki sawari is a simple, soulful and straightforward watch. It is a an true offering from the makers of ‘Ferrari  kI….’ to the God of Cricket. Go and enjoy your weekend with this heart touching watch.
