    Fun and entertaining movie. Refreshing. Good acting by a not-so-well-known cast. Some great laughter inducing scenes.

    From wonderful animation opening to stop-motion end credits, this film is filled with some really cool camera & editing tricks which is visually appreciable at places. Even though story may not be that quirky or crispier than Delhi Belly, but still its the performances (Richa Chaddha, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat) & some crackling dialogues filled with delhi lingo makes it a one time watch.

    Missed this one in the first go and when I heard this was re-released in Delhi on public demand, I just had to watch it. Decent flick with good humour. Performances are quite nice and a good story. Watch for Ambarsariya!

    'Fukrey' is Delhi slang for people with boastful mouth but falling short in action when required. It can also mean idle and/or street smart people who waste time doing nothing. 'Vella' and 'Lukha' are another nearby slangs used for such people (courtesy: Mumbaikars). The movie is a well made comedy with apt name and casting and is pleasant to watch. Direction and acting are also good. It deals with the money requirement of idle duds (read ultra weak students) to gain shortcut into college by buying question paper(s). Their sole motivation for college admission is proximity to girl(s)). To facilitate this, they go to the extreme length of borrowing money from a local mistress of vices and in the process suffer heavily. In the movie, the kind of euphoria the protagonists attach to the simple act of getting admission or entry into college is something new and worth watching. As mentioned earlier, all characters fit the bill and have performed well. But the icing on the cake is the debutant Varun Sharma who has played the role of gawky, child like and puberty-excited 'Chucha' to the T. His acting is fresh, original and consistent. With him on the screen, you are well assured of genuine laughter. This is a great achievement for a debutant. Pulkit seems to be acting 'the hero' of the movie, wherein in reality no such character exists. Only if that misconception was erased from his performance, the bar of the movie would have raised a few notches higher. Nevertheless his performance is very controlled as compared to his first and preceding movie 'Bittoo Boss'. Ali has done justice to his melancholic and introvert character and has refrained from using unnecessary nuances in his acting. Richa's ease of use of expletives is something new on Indian screen. Hats off to her to mumble such dialogues with such natural ease. But unlike other characters, somewhere her character is not well defined. It ranges from being a local (read street) mistress to that of an anti social boss! Navjot is good in poker faced comedy. It is surprising to witness such well woven comedy from Mrigdeep whose last directorial venture was 'Teen Thay Bhai' which was a depressing comedy in spite of the presence of good actors (Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade) in the movie!
