Cuttputlli Review: Akshay’s film became an audiencepuppet, the film makers did a lot of ‘cheating’ by twisting the door

95

From cinema to OTT, Akshay has become so much these days that sometimes one gets tired of hearing another Akshay’s film. The ninth month of the year has just begun and till now, in the name of Akshay, the audience is being ‘cheated’ in ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Emperor Prithviraj’, ‘Rakshabandhan’ and now ‘Puppet’ as well.

A word used a lot in filmmaking, ‘cheat kar lenge!’ means doing something that the audience can’t catch. For example, while shooting, a line was not shot properly or the facial expressions of an artist did not come properly or such small things. When these problems were caught during the editing of the film, without going to the original location, these scenes with the artist would have been ‘cheated’ by going to Mumbai or where he was at that time. This ‘cheating’ equal to salt in lentils did not bother even the audience. But, director Ranjit M Tiwari’s new film ‘Katputli’ is such a cheating from the beginning to the end that people will remember it for years. Producer Vashu Bhagnani has ‘cheated’ the entire Kasauli here and made it in a town near London. But, neither the leaves of the trees lie, nor the buildings nor the soil. If you watch the film carefully, you will understand that the door in ‘Puppet’ is in the hands of the makers of this film and the dancing has been the audience watching it.

Another remake of south movie

When the Tamil film ‘Ratasan’ became a hit four years ago, everyone ran after its remake rights. Telugu people made it under the name ‘Rakshasudu’ and released it within a year. Ranjeet M Tiwari also showed the speed, but after the film was made, it came to know that the dangers of copying a Tamil film are too many. No distributor touched the film at all. Akshay Kumar’s jugaad is of great use to his producers. Even Disney + Hotstar people remain kind to Akshay. When Fox Star Studios was there, there was a lot of setting for Akshay’s films. Then came OTT, they have no problem in selling ‘Lakshmi’ and ‘Puppet’ here too. The problem is that only OTT customers who keep getting ‘cheat’ by giving one year subscription together.

Akshay’s film became

Another bad film of Akshay Kumar

From cinema to OTT, Akshay has become so much these days that sometimes one gets tired of hearing another Akshay’s film. The ninth month of the year has just begun and till now the audience is ‘cheating’ in the name of Akshay in ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Emperor Prithviraj’, ‘Rakshabandhan’ and now ‘Puppet’ as well.

Also in the line is his film ‘Ram Setu’ with Jacqueline Fernandez, who may appear in lock-up any day along with his alleged cheating partner Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Well, coming back to the film ‘Puppet’ in which every artist is seen ‘trying’ to act well in front of the camera. Cinema is the opposite, in which a fantasy has to be put on screen in such a way that it looks like real life. As soon as the hard work of acting is seen on the screen, the matter becomes Sunil Shetty. And, every artist in the film ‘Kathputli’ has competition from Sunil Shetty’s acting.
