The Archies: First Review

Taking to Instagram, filmmaker Karan Johar has shared the first review of 'The Archies'. "#TheArchies has been watched!!! A town of Anglo Indians called RIVERDALE! The year is 1964.. And straight from the credit roll you’re sucked right into @zoieakhtar’s world and with her impeccable craft and command she makes sure you’re hooked! The production design, the cinematography,the choreography , the costume design will blow your mind with its on fleek detailing and aesthetic victories!” he shared. 

Speaking about the storyline, Karan added, “Zoya and Reema not only speak of friendship and the traumas of genZ love but also of what a teenage mind can feel when they combat their sexual orientation and fear judgement ( watch out for this tender moment my favourite scene in the film) …but very subtly they adress climate change , voice of a minority and the need to uprise to injustice all this packaged to a zingy and zanny musical!! I felt young and wanted to be a friend to this magnificent 7 and go back in time where I spent hours reading this delicious comic series!” 

Writing about the star kids' performance, KJO said, “The new kids on the block are fantastic… Agastya Nanda ( get onto Insta baby) is fantastic ! He makes a complicated and sometimes unlikeable character so lovable! He had me at hello!!! @mihirahuja_ is Brilliant he has impeccable comic timing and yet scores in very emotional beat! I loved @dotandthesyllables she is like sunshine through and through @khushi05k as Betty broke my heart in the most beautiful way! Watch out for her silent moments … and her compassionate eyes ! A heart breaker in every way !!!! Loved her!  @suhanakhan2 as VERONICA is coquettish , vulnerable and sassy ! All this with the ease of a veteran ! Watch her moves and grooves and that sass hits its out of the green park! She’s here to stay and conquer! @yuvrajmenda is just so so good!!!!! He had me in tears in one scene and please note his “thank YOUU” is going viral very soon!!!! @vedangraina as REGGIE walks the talk! He oozes charm and confidence in equal measure and has that movie star swag!! Also dances with unabashed ease! Congratulations to @zoieakhtar and @reemakagti1 for making my evening so special! Nostalgia and a rocking musical! I am not complaining! Congratulations to Monika and team @netflix_in for executing such a brilliant and strategic campaign! Watch it asap!❤️
