Vicky Donor: Box-Office Expectations
Vicky Donor has a novel theme but the kind of which will not appeal to the Indian masses. Thus, the film will have to be good enough to work for its target audience – the urban youth. But with a new cast and music that has really not caught on, an opening on Friday might be too much to ask.
Rampage Motion Pictures Ltd, Rising Suns Films Pvt Ltd, JA Entertainment Pvt Ltd and Eros Entertainment.
Annu Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana, Yami Gautam.
In an environment where the job pressures are high and couples lead an erratic and unhealthy life style, Dr. Baldev Chaddha (Annu Kapoor), a well qualified fertility expert, runs a fertility clinic and a sperm bank in Dariyaganj (New Delhi) that guarantees a high quality and specialized sperm for the purpose. Unfortunately he has more failed cases to his credit than successes. A healthy, high performing donor is the need of the hour.
Vicky Arora (Ayushmann Khurrana), a young, good-looking, Punjabi guy from Lajpat Nagar, is the only son and of no financial support to Dolly, a widow, who runs a small beauty parlor from home.
As luck would have it, a small brawl in the colony brings Dr. Chaddha and Vicky, face to face, where Chaddha, concludes that Vicky could be that donor he has been looking for. From here on, Chaddha’s days and nights are spent in convincing Vicky to become a donor till he finally gives in.
Vicky finds his love interest in Ashima Roy (Yami Gautam), a pretty Bengali girl, who works in a bank. But soon their hunky dory world comes crashing down because of Vicky’s past as a donor. With a brief emotional roller coaster ride, Vicky Donor is a light-hearted take on the subject of sperm donation.
