Phillauri is the story of Kannan (Suraj Sharma) who returns back from Canada. He is about to get married to his sweetheart Anu (Mehrene) in Amritsar. After being declared a ‘manglik’, he is asked to marry a tree to solve his future problems post-marriage. Kannan gives into pressure and married a tree, only to find later that he’s now married to the ghost of Shashi (Anushka Sharma), whose soul lived on the tree. The rest of the film is all about Shashi and why she turned a ghost. Watch Phillauri to know about the complete story.
Phillauri has an interesting story line and it has been well executed in parts. The movie turns quite interesting at times however it is the slow narration which spoils the feel throughout. The first half looks decent and it has some interesting episodes to get entertained. However a huge dip during the pre-interval episodes spoils the mood and on the whole the first half of Phillauri has been quite comfortable to be watched.
After a decent first half, the second half fails to make that impact across the audience. The uninteresting narration and the unwanted episodes spoil the film’s feel. They deviate the major plot of the film and irritate the audience. It is Anushka Sharma who shines throughout the film and the visuals look extremely impressive. The climax has been decent and on the whole the second half of Phillauri fails to live up the expectations.
Anushka Sharma has been extremely convincing as ghost and her performance is the major highlight of the film. Mehreen Pirzada makes her debut with the film and we must say that this fresh face is delightful.Suraj Sharma aptly portrays the confused NRI. He has been impressive in the assigned role. Diljit Dosanjh has been extremely energetic and he steals the show. He has been apt for the role and he performed with utmost ease.
As revealed the story of Phillauri has been extremely new and impressive. The screenplay and the dialogues are the let downs of the film. The cinematography has been top notch and every spent penny has been showcased on screen. The music and the background score carried the film well and they matched the film’s mood. The production values looked grand and the director managed to impress the audience at times.
Anushka Sharma’s second production Phillauri has nothing new in terms of stuff and it can be given a skip. Grand visuals and the performances by the leads are the only good things.
