Expectations

After doing a few small roles in big films like 'Slumdog Millionaire' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', Sharib Hashmi made his mark with 'Filmistaan'.

Sadly, after this wonderful movie the actor failed to display his potential. His latest film 'Phullu', promises to deliver a fine performance based film suiting to Sharib's caliber.

The trailer has a similar theme as Akshay Kumar's upcoming film 'Padman', due to which there is a good amount of curiosity and expectations, but only among all those who love meaningful cinema.

Story

'Phullu' is a story of a simpleton Phullu (Sharib Hashmi), who loves helping the womenfolk in his village. Pullu's mother (Nutan Surya) wants him to seek a steady job in any big city, but all he wants is to keep helping people around him. Phullu gets married to Begni (Jyoti Sethi) and is madly in love with her. One day Phullu discovers about menstruation cycle and usage of sanitary napkins. It's at that time Phullu decides to learn the making process of sanitary napkins and make them for social welfare.

The 'Glitz' Factor

The story is daringly different. There are many simple yet likeable scenes which keeps you glued to the silver screen. These scenes make you connect with the feel of the film. The language used by the actors is totally authentic along with the realistic settings.

The cinematography is good and some of the natural locations are brilliant. All the important scenes are presented in very subtle manner without being cheap or vulgar. The music by Vickky Aggarwal is good, but except for a couple of songs.

Director Abhishek Saxena succeeds in extracting fine performances from his lead actors and the message he wants to convey is right at its place.Sharib Hashmi is fantastic in his role. Jyoti Sethi does a great job. Nutan Surya and Trishna lend good support. Inaamulhaq is a show stealer.

The 'Non-Glitz' Factor

The treatment of the film is terribly slow. The scenes are dragging and repetitive. The climax is abrupt and disjointed. Many scenes are unwanted. The cluttered screenplay ruins the impact and dilutes the intensity of the film. The slow narration and minimal happenings might end up working against the favor of the film.

There are many songs which again dilutes the films intensity. There is no emotional connect in many important scenes. The whole purpose of Sharib goes into vain due to weak screenplay.

Final 'Glitz'

'Phullu' is an informative film which tries to showcase a very important issue but fails to get it registered in the viewer's mind.

Rating: 2.5 / 5.0
