Fatso (2012)

null
The beautiful love story of Naveen (Purab Kohli) and Nandini (Gul Panag) hits rock bottom, when Naveen meets with an accident and dies on the spot. But, thankfully, his soul gets the golden opportunity to comeback, as the modern day Yamraj picks him up instead of his fatso friend Sudeep (Ranvir Shorey), who actually had to bid good bye to life.

As Naveen’s body is burnt to ashes, the only way he can return to his sweetheart is by getting into Sudeep’s body, who ought to die. Will Nandini recognise Naveen, who’s entered Sudeep’s body is the rest of the story!

First of all, if you think that Bollywood films don’t justify their titles, then you wouldn’t be wrong here, as Fatso definitely has nothing to do with Sudeeps’s (Ranvir Shorey) plumpness. And, so is the case with Naveen’s love for Nandini as alas, here too, the screenplay writer complicates it further with the leading lady Nandini falling for Sudeep. So, the question that really stands out here is- why does Naveen comeback if Nandini eventually had to get impressed by Sudeep’s personality? The overtly dragged screenplay further does the needful to bore one to death.

Ranvir Shorey compels one to leave the bitter memories of Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi released last week and commands praise. He is simply fabulous. Gul Panag looks shallow at some points, but overall she impresses with her performance. Purab Kohli is cute in his small but pivotal role, which eventually loses essence as the plot thickens. Neil Bhoopalam and Gunjan Bakshi play their parts well.

Direction is the only saving grace for the film, as Rajat Kapoor intelligently tackles the bizarre plot. It’s a treat to watch Ranvir Shorey explaining Gunjan Bakshi the fact that grass is always greener on the other side, when she is on the verge of committing suicide. Also, how he shares his happiness when he gets back Gul in his life. In short, the direction is the lifeline of the film which somehow gets one hooked.

Fatso rides on the shoulders of Rajat Kapoor’s direction and Ranvir Shorey’s performance. A confusing screenplay, poor writing and music and impactless dialogues leave Fatso in a very uncomfortable position.
verall, Fatso falls flat in its narrative, which makes it a dull affair. It’s strictly a one time watch.
