Also, the movie is directed by Sudhir Mishra who is known for his direction in the movie Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. Let’s review this new member on OTT!
The movie dangles many loose ends nudging the curiosity of viewers till the interval. It’s intended to be a dark humor movie with a sidekick of a striking reality check. The movie revolves around this boy who is a child prodigy as well as the son of the protagonist. Initially, when everything is pointing towards societal issues with living the life of the underprivileged, the second half of the movie hints at a crooked twist.
The movie starts with the challenges faced by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who mocks all the failures he is cursed with for being a part of ‘an under-privileged’ societal status. Ayyan, a character played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Oja Mani, a character played by Indira Tiwari is the couple who aspire for a son that will fight the boundaries set by ‘Serious Men’. Then starts the main plot where they get blessed with a son. The thing that brings spice to the story is their son’s exemplary analytical skills with a very smart brain. His smartness lands him in the limelight. Here starts the journey full of fame for the prodigal boy. Then the political angle is flaunted in between. Suddenly the boy who belonged to a middle-class family is a celebrity due to his alleged extraordinary abilities.
Here comes the last twist to the story. You will read any review pieces talking about this. There is a secret Ayyan has harbored. The climax of the movie points at him being shattered when he thinks about the consequences of the secret getting revealed. You will stay glued to the screen when you see that Ayyan has protected a web of lies, maybe to combat the wrath of ‘Serious Men’ which would have hampered his son’s fame in one way or the other.
