Actor Amol Palekar, who was famous as the first common man of Hindi cinema, if he found the director of these days’ Happening Director Hansal Mehta or Rajkummar Rao, who has become the poster boy of the story based cinema, to work with directors like Basu Chatterjee or Hrishikesh Mukherjee. What would have happened if I had a chance? These questions often arose in my mind when I saw Rajkumar Rao and Hansal Mehta’s films ‘Shahid’, ‘City Lights’, ‘Aligarh’ and ‘Omerta’. In between, the two also created a brilliant web series ‘Bose: Dead / Alive’. Hansal Mehta’s digital upheaval these days is the web series ‘Scam 1992’ on the biggest scam of the stock exchange. Its success has also given its hero Prateik Gandhi a film. Hansal Mehta has made his next film ‘Chalang’ lightly lit Gudgadati Se, with the hopes of films like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee returning to Hindi cinema.
The film ‘Chhalang’ is a new line of entertainment in Hindi cinema by Hansal Mehta and Rajkumar Rao. It feels good that Rajkummar Rao is finally coming out of the fascination of masala films and he is avoiding repeating mistakes, which Manoj Bajpayee did not stop doing even after stumbling. The ‘Cholang’ Chola is from a sports film, but its soul is that of a story that throws a man’s life. This time this cradle is of Jhajjar. Montu is a PT teacher at the school here. He does not care about anyone else either. With Shukla ji, his days are ‘cool’. And, then, Rajinigandha, who smells like Neelima Madam, enters the school. The computer she teaches, the system begins to hang Montu. And finally, Montu has to reboot his system because now his emperors are in danger due to the arrival of senior PT teacher in the school.
Hansal Mehta is the director of Kamal. In the early days, he tried to make Manoj Bajpayee Shahrukh Khan in a film for which actors like Amol Palekar or now Rajkumar Rao would have proved better. Then for a long time his compass kept wandering here and there. Hansal Mehta has caught the trick of his journey from ‘Shahid’, now he has a new twist in the film ‘Chalang’. This is a sign of Hansal Mehta constantly challenging himself as a director. The pair of Hansal and Rajkumar Rao are awesome. It was good that both of them were putting the tag of serious films on them by putting sanitizer in this film. The film ‘leap’ is also a need of the hour and the careers of both. The film ‘Chalang’ is a sensational medicine to improve the mood of the beholder during the festive season.
Rajkummar Rao is the real axis of the film ‘Chalang’. His new leap brings his career four steps ahead. While portraying Montu as a PT teacher, you may remember Ladies Taylor stammering ‘woman’, but elsewhere she is absolutely first class, with distinction. Rajkumar has released two films in a span of 24 hours, and Rajkumar topped both. She is ashamed to call Nusrat Bharucha a Rajkumar Rao’s senior, but in the film ‘Chalang’ she proves that if she does, she can indeed show herself as a senior to Rajkumar. This character of Neelima is also a new standard for teachers in Hindi cinema. The Tridevs who have met the actress in the form of Saurabh Shukla, Satish Kaushik and Ila Arun, the film seems to happen in the immediate neighborhood. This is the real victory of the film and it is the presence of Zeeshan Ayub, although the film director’s favorite has been Rajkumar here, from beginning to end.
In Hindi cinema, there are many films made on the country’s marginal sports, such as ‘Hip Hip Hurray’, ‘Boxer’, ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander’, ‘Chak De India’, ‘Khadoos’, ‘Dangal’ and ‘Panga’. . If you look closely, in all these films, the game outside the mainstream (cricket) has been used by its directors to teach such a philosophy of life in which the game remains just a medium. This is also the reason for the success of the film ‘Chalang’. Its chola is of a sports film, but its soul manages to teach life lessons. Ishit Narayan’s cinematography is notable in the technical side of the film, the music could have been the better of the film.
