Jagran Rating: Good

Storyline: Kai Po Che is Abhishek Kapoor’s screen adaptation of prominent author Chetan Bhagat’s third novel ‘The Three Mistakes of Life’.

Metaphor Kai Po Che is a Gujarati lingo closely meaning ‘Woh Kaata’, used as an expression of victory during kite flying.

The film is all about celebrating friendship and focusing on dreams despite all odds in life. Story revolves around three friends namely Ishaan (Sushant Singh Rajput), Omkar (Amit Sadh) and Govind (Raj Kumar Yadav). Ishaan who is a die-hard cricket fan is abhorred by his father for being workless.

His casual lifestyle is well- portrayed by clothing like Capri pants, simple tee, flip-flops and messy hair. On the other hand is Govind who is more practical and thinks deeply before taking any step in life.

Omi, who is depicted as a person who is dependent on Ishaan for his decisions, explores his real self as the story proceeds.

Story moves with an idea to open a sports academy cum sports goods shop to earn their living. Finally, Ishaan gets the purpose of his life when he meets a 12-year old boy named Ali Hashmi who has enormous potential for cricket and takes the responsibility to make his dream come true. He determines to coach the boy.

Eventually, movie takes U-turn and differences occur among the friends when first, the 2001 Gujarat earthquake and then the 2002 post-Godhra riots leave a deep scar on their friendship with Ishaan taking a stand in support of Ali and his community, while Omi infuriated with anger over the death of his parents in the riots.

Thumbs Up:

Thanks to Abhishek Kapoor for relying on Sushant and giving Bollywood a much required blow of fresh air and good talent. The characters in movie are realistic, convincing and the ones you can relate to. Music has been beautifully put by Amit Trivedi who himself is a Gujrati thus maintaining the essence of Gujrat in the songs.

Thumbs Down:

The movie has no such big flaws and flops necessary to be mentioned. A must watch for all walks of life. Grab the ticket for mellowing your heart with highly emotive scenes.
