Why Cheat India: Overview
Remember Rajkumar Hirani's directorial Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and its epic scene where Dr Rustom is abducted by Munna's gang to take his examination? Yes, that's right! Why Cheat India is a two-hour-eight-minute feature film depicting the same thing while giving some factual information on the corrupted education system of India.
Why Cheat India is an amalgamation of facts and fiction on the poor education system where Indian students make multiple attempts to crack competitive exams. The societal pressure on getting into engineering and management courses, despite having limited number of seats for innumerable students, lead such people to either take wrong paths or suicide.
Giving a piece of information here -the second half of the film slows down in comparison to the first one but the film's story is unpredictable if you choose not to use your brains.
Why Cheat India: Storyline
While the subject of the film hits students taking competitive exams or is relatable to us in some way or the other, the film lacks gripping and interest of the audience. Rakesh Singh played by Emraan Hashmi is undoubtedly an amusing person, who wanted to crack medical exam but now guiltlessly stands by his wrong-doings. Singh is a racketeer who influences intelligent and topper students to take exams for candidates who can afford exorbitant fees. While Singh's married life is dull and gloomy, he is attracted to Nupur played by actress Shreya Dhanwarthray.
Why Cheat India: Emraan Hashmi and Shreya Dhanwarthray
The most stupendous views in the film are seeing Emraan Hashmi's performance. The actor as Rakesh Singh or Rocky did cent per cent justice to his character. Emraan also carried off the attire and look of Rakesh Singh very well. On the other hand, let us tell you that Shreya Dhanwarthray is making her Bollywood debut with Why Cheat India. Needless to say, the actress did well in her first film.
Why Cheat India: Direction and Music
Why Cheat India is a directorial project of Soumik Sen and speaking of the direction of the film -it is standard without any uniqueness in it. The character of Rakesh Singh likes to sing giving scope for music to play an important role in the film but honestly, the music and background score is okay-ish!
Why Cheat India: Verdict
Why Cheat India shouldn't be missed if you are Emraan Hashmi's fan. You can also watch this entertaining drama with your friends or family members just to catch up. Otherwise, you aren't missing out on something major this weekend!
