Angrezi Medium review: Irrfan and Radhika win hearts in this gem of a film!

Angrezi Medium directed by Homi Adajania and starring Irrfan, Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal, and Kareena Kapoor Khan is a fine blend of bizarre situations and heart-warming feelings.

Angrezi Medium’s promotions began with a montage of movie stills with its leading man Irrfan’s voice over, telling audiences that the makers have made this film with heart and love and appealing them to watch it in theatres. That message from Irrfan summarizes this film perfectly. Angrezi Medium is probably the most heart-warming film to have come out of Bollywood in recent times (latest that comes to mind is Bajrangi Bhaijaan).

It is a father and daughter story – all heart, nok-jhok (arguments), laughs and emotions. Irrfan stars as the father Champak Bansal, who wants to fulfil his daughter Tarika’s (Radhika Madan) dream of going to London to study at Truford University. The father and daughter win your hearts with their chemistry from their first scene together. And they continue to do so till the end.

How far a father can go to fulfil his child’s dream? Well, he finds himself in bizarre situations during his journey. But however bizarre the situations might seem otherwise in a different story and context, in Angrezi Medium it doesn’t seem force-fed. It is because of its characters and the actors portraying them. All of them are in fine form with a superb Irrfan leading from the front.

Irrfan’s nuanced performance is ably supported by Radhika Madan (who made a brilliant debut with Pataakha) and Deepak Dobriyal (please give him more roles to play), with sort of special appearances by Dimple Kapadia and Kareena Kapoor Khan (kudos to her for playing that small role) as mother and daughter with pending issues. Pankaj Tripathi produces laughs in his one-scene cameo as Tony.

The film has been written by four writers – Bhavesh Mandalia, Gaurav Shukla, Vinay Chhawall, Sara Bodinar – and they have written some top-notch dialogues. Their writing is smartly executed by director Homi Adajania (Being Cyrus, Cocktail, Finding Fanny). The film’s BGM by Sachin – Jigar avoids going melodramatic in the emotional scenes, doing justice to film’s writing which never goes overboard with father-daughter relationship and avoids giving gyaan.

The good thing about Angrezi Medium is that at 145 minutes (or so) the film doesn’t seem stretched. The characters, especially Irrfan, make you smile, laugh and sometimes emotional. It is a heart-warming experience. Drop everything else and watch it in theatres with your loved ones.

Deepika delivers an exemplary performance on the celluloid and the credit goes to her diligence, passion and determination. She thoroughly seeps into the skin of her character, and walks an extra mile to achieve the finesse.
