Cheat: Emraan Hashmi best so far



Star Rating 3.0 out of 5.0

Why Cheat India like many other Bollywood films is made out of a TV series. In order to stretch 40 minutes to 2 hours film, the story drags the audience towards the climax and gets boring before it turns interesting for few seconds at the end.

The story is about Rakesh Singh (Emraan Hashmi), who runs a scam. Rakesh is a mastermind of cheating techniques in high level entry exams that is happening throughout India.

As a method Rakesh tracks a brilliant student in Satyendra Dubey (Snighadeep Chatterjee), then somehow convinces him to take the exams for rich spoilt students. Hence showing him the way to earn lot of money. Satyendra keeps working for Rakesh and finally, after sometime he boils down to a point where he breaks down and surrenders to the pressure. Rakesh, though felt a strong emotional shock, he decides to move ahead. Because of which he starts getting into numerous legal issues. From here the story circle’s around Rakesh’s attempt to justify his scamming.

I believe that this by far is the best performance of Emraan Hashmi. He portrayed the character real that you often forget that who he really is. He painted his character grey, rather than black and white and instead of being Robinhood or Sultana Bandit, he is man from modern era, with several personalities.

The newbies of Bollywood i.e.  Shreya Dhanwantary and Snigdhadeep Chatterjee are perfectly casted in innocent roles.

The second half with all its twists and turns, belongs to Shreya Dhanwanthary who was outstanding. Although she made her presence felt right in the first  scene, her character unfolds after interval. Her expressions were flawless throughout the movie.

Snighadeep Chatterjee as Sattu managed to present himself well. The audience can feel sympathetic towards his character when he was studying hard to fulfil his father’s dream.

On the other hand, Manuj Sharma as Rakesh’s friend Bablu struggled to what was required for a strong supporting role perhaps due to script flaws.

The music of Why Cheat India is nothing to discuss and it is one of the weakest point of this film. The background score by Neel Adhikari is quite ordinary. Some sound effects are used at places that just blows down the quality of the scenes.

Why Cheat India is interesting, entertaining and informative to an extent. Throughout the director refrained from preaching and showed what is actually happening around in the country. This is not a typical happy ending story but a realistic story, where doing your job will end you up in a remote area. This film has no hero or villain, it solely relies on anti-hero and that makes this different from many others like this.
