Salaam Venky  Movie Review:

Kajol & Vishal Jethwa Starrer Is Structured To Make You Cry But Falters When One Tries To See Beyond

It is an earnest attempt in telling a story about a dying man determined to make his existence worthwhile and a mother’s anguish and zest to give her son the best passing

What's Good?

The void it ignores while focusing on the broad strokes powered by high-toned emotions and overtly manipulating background music.

What's Bad?

There is nothing so bad that you chose something over this if you have bought that ticket.

Loo Break:

For an honest attempt and a story that is moving and brave, you must give it a chance. Maybe wait for the OTT release.

Watch or Not?

Kajol has a love relationship with lens and there is no way she can look bad in any frame. 

Vishal Jethwa is a gifted actor. Taking a 180-degree turn from his villainous role in Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani, makes Venky look believable even when the script tries to not translate his pain well.

Also, more of Aamir Khan being himself on the big screen, please! The cameos in Salaam Venky are worth the while.

Salaam Venky is an earnest film but also flawed and one cannot ignore that. A more realistic approach would have done wonders.
