Coffee With D – Movie Review
Vishal Mishra’s Coffee With D, courted controversies ever since its first trailer was unveiled. The film supposedly landed in problems with the real Don and had to postpone their release. Considering the film has already created a buzz with its plot and subsequent controversies, it will be interesting to see what is in store for the viewers.
One huge problem with the script of this film is its poor representation of media. The story of the film is portrayed very foolishly. The movie put too much focus on the epic clash between the Don and Arnab to generate drama and this is where the film fails in parts.
Sunil Grover is better known for his comic act on the television show, Comedy Nights With Kapil. He is likable only in parts and after a point, his mimicry of Arnab turns irritating. Zakir Hussain plays the character of D. He is an actor with great potential but the script fails him. Pankaj Tripathy added a subtle yet funny tone to the entire film by cracking jokes with a hard hitting punchline.
The film is entertaining in the first half as Arnab sets out to publishing a lot of false news about D to get him to agree for interview. The pace of the story falls for a bit in the second half since the movie heavily depends on the face to face interview between a journalist and an underworld don.
All in all, the movie has it’s ups and downs. While the stalwart performances have been the highlight, the movie undoubtedly had a potential to do more better, if the treatment was more polished.
Even if you skip this movie, you are not missing out on anything. Don’t waste your time and money on this one, Better wait for upcoming movies Kaabil and Raees. Coffee With D is avoidable. 2 out of 5 star for this.
