'Kai Po Che' is more than Love, Friendship and Ambition

Kai Po Che, the recent venture by Abhishek Kapoor is the real example of a movie which shows that one does not need to have big names on the silver screen to win the hearts of the audiences. The movie is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book; The Three Mistakes of My Life, has new young faces like Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and raj Kumar Yadav playing the lead roles of Ishaan, Omi and Govind respectively. Looking at it at one glance, it might seem yet another film revolving around the lives of the youngsters. However, there lie many factors which set Kai Po Che apart from other films like Dil Chahta Hain, Zindegi Na Milegi Dobara, or Rock On!!

Kai Po Che has roots deep within our society. It is a semi-true story of events that took place about a decade ago. The riots of Gujarat and the earthquake that shook several communities, which have been shown in the film, have not been dealt with before. This risky side was undertaken by Abhishek Kapoor. The two calamities that had affected thousands of people of Gujarat have been shown in details while the story is pivoted around the lives of our three main characters. It is through them that we are able to feel the tumultuous events that change the course of their lives.

Through Kai Po Che the director shows us that how our ambitions can falter in their paths just by certain attacks of nature or of man. It is through the emotions of the three characters that we are able to explore how life can change in a matter of just a few seconds. When the book came out, it did cause a stir among the youth and was widely the topic of discussions. However, after the movie is complete to hit the theaters, the author himself feels that it is better than the book itself.

Kai Po Che shows a deep bond between three friends whose behavior, attitude towards life and emotional strength set them apart. The movie shows that even in friendship one has to perform various tests to prove oneself. If one dreams of something, only hard work will not help him to achieve it. Lastly, the film does not have any famous faces of Bollywood. Yet it has resulted in huge number of positive responses since the premiere of its trailer. We all hope that Kai Po Che will do very well at the Box-office.
