Dasvi Reviews: Abhishek Chanchan Sinks His Teeth Into the Role, But Film Flies The Test | MCC posts 2022

Dasvi is a film that flagrantly flirts in fatuity, and fails, falters, and falls flat along the way. It’s a crummy political comedy that assumes the responsibility of telling the world education can do what power cannot. It could have just as easily resorted to APJ Abdul Kalam, like such Hindi films often do.

Dasvi Reviews: Abhishek Chanchan Sinks His Teeth Into the Role, But Film Flies The Test

Dasvi‘s noble and unassailable purpose is hampered by its self-conscious earnestness. It takes the fun out the exercise by approaching the job with too much seriousness. Dasvi, which can be viewed on Jio Cinema or Netflix, is hilarious, but not for the right reasons. It puts a literal spin to the re-education process of a politician and it destroys the comedy potential of the premise.

Suresh Naik, Ritesh Shah, and Tushar Jalota wrote the Abhishek Bachchan starrer and had it directed by debutant Tushar jalota. Although he does it with a fair amount of flair, the film’s fragmented elements are not given a cohesive screenplay. He ends up sounding like a backbencher, who makes lots of noise, but makes very little sense.

Ganga Ram Chaudhary is Bachchan, an upcountry politician and semi-literate who has been chief minister in a fictional state since he can recall. He believes he was born to govern in the way he wants and that no one can stop him. He is free to treat Tandon (ChittaranjanTripathi), his personal secretary, with undisguised disdain.

When the politician is found guilty in a fraud and sentenced, things begin to move. He gives the power to Vimla Devi (Nimratkaur), his submissive, silent wife. He is certain that he will soon be released on bail and reclaim the post.

Satpal Tomar (Manu Rishi Chadha), a pliable jail warden gives the ex-CM everything he needs to feel at home in prison. Two things happen simultaneously to make the man feel at home in prison. Jyoti Daswal (Yami Gautam Dahar), a tough and uncompromising superintendent arrives on a punishment assignment to take over the jail. Two, his wife, who has tasted blood, begins to feel a connection with the CM’s throne.

Dasvi is a film that flagrantly flirts in fatuity, and fails, falters, and falls flat along the way. It’s a poor political satire, which takes on the task of convincing the world that education can accomplish what power cannot. It could have just as easily resorted to APJ Abdul Kalam, like such Hindi films often do.

Satpal Tomar (Manu Rishi Chadha), a pliable jail warden gives the ex-CM everything he needs to feel at home in jail. Two things happen simultaneously to make the pitch for the man more bearable. Jyoti Daswal (Yami Gautam Dahar), a tough and uncompromising superintendent arrives on a punishment assignment to take over the jail. Two, his wife, who has tasted blood, begins to feel a connection with the CM’s throne.

 

These two women will soon be able to teach the political savage a lesson or two. This is Dasvi‘s story. But the film doesn’t have a clear focus because it eats way too much and continues down a wrong path. Ganga Ram is lead to believe that all he has to learn English is the ability to distinguish between passive and active voice. The film labors under many false notions that is very difficult to justify.

Ganga Ram decides to take the Standard X ( Dasvi) exam to escape the hard work he is required to do and stop Jyoti Dewal from making fun of his low educational qualifications. He believes that he has the ability to learn English, Hindi and Math as well as Science, History, Math and Social Sciences.

This is his daring move. It’s meant to set off a series comical events. It doesn’t do that. Dasvi is as funny as Ganga Ram in his attempts to catch up with all of the formal knowledge that has been lost.

What does this mean? He has had encounters with Mahatma, Lala Lajpatrai, Chandrashekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh while trying to understand the history of India’s liberation struggle.

Ganga Ram shouts ” Inquilab Zindabad ” once, but Dasviisn’t the kind of film that would be interested in mentioning that Maulana Hasrat Mohani was a prominent leftist freedom fighter who invented the slogan or allowing a certain Pandit Jawaharlal Naehru or the party that he led to enter the narrative framework even slightly. Poor Ganga Ram cannot escape the curse of selective history!

Ganga Ram is doing it because it’s worth it, but he discovers that those who don’t learn from history are doomed ” He learns this by translating the English language as ” Itihaas se Na sikhne waale, khud ITihaas ban Jaate Hai” A tiger does not change its stripes. He is trapped in the loops of these two aphorisms and he finds only ways to tie him – and the film, up in knots.

He realizes that he is just like the main character of Taare Zameen PAR in Hindi, and is therefore dyslexic. He is supported by fellow inmates and the upright chief of police at every turn. Dasvi fails to find the answers it needs, because the elements that could have helped it – script and some creative imagination – don’t quite make the grade.

Dasvi fails the test as it walks into the examination room without the required wherewithal. The main characters – the politician’s wife, the policewoman, and the personal secretary to the CM – are all half-baked characters whose history is lost in a fog. They are reduced to fighting a losing battle
