FRYDAY MOVIE REVIEW: A desperate salesman Rajiv (Varun Sharma) is on the brink of losing his job at a water purifying company and asked to leave if he fails to sell at least one purifier by Friday. But, Rajiv finds himself in the middle of a marital mess when a seasoned ex-salesman Manchanda (Sanjay Mishra) puts him in touch with a quirky couple.
A holier-than-thou Bela Kapoor (Prabhleen Sandhu) dedicates her life to the betterment of the society and leaves her sex-deprived, middle-aged husband Gagan (Govinda) craving for nights of sheer passion. Frustrated, the flamboyant theatre actor indulges in a steamy affair with a person half his age, Bindu (Digangana Suryavanshi) and decides to bring her home after his wife leaves the city for social work.
In the meantime, Rajiv’s singing career as a salesman needs just one customer and that’s when the eccentric Kapoor couple come into the picture. Varun Sharma as the small-town boy, stuck with the travails of life in a big city, is quite relatable, so is his performance and comic timing. Govinda’s dialled-up performance though mirrors his over-the-top style from the 90s and that’s one of the many problems this no-brainer comedy has to contend with.
The script of ‘FryDay’ drags on for a little too long and the humour showcased in the film isn’t even at par with what the trailer promised to deliver. Most of the performances are off the mark, while the director loses a grip on the narrative in the second half of the film. The screenplay goes from situational humour to mindless gags in a hurry.
‘FryDay’ is the one-weekend party you shouldn’t consider attending, even if your name is on the guest list!
