October


Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’ is a feel-good film. It is a tranquil love story. The film is emotionally and cinematographically very strong. You will flow with its rhythm. It is slow paced but it leaves you no room for complaint.  Here script is the USP and star factor doesn’t matter much.

Director Shoojit Sircar has been able to extract the best out of Varun Dhawan and made debutante Banita Sandhu enact a challenging role. Juhi Chaturvedi’s script is the USP of the film. ‘October’ gives a new definition of life. It is a serene experience. ‘October’ is a thought provoking subject. Audience will get to see an altogether new aspect of life. It is not a usual love story filled with melodrama and naach-gaana. ‘October’ gives a new meaning of life and love. It is a lyrical love story in which your heart dance with it.

Varun Dhawan plays the role of Danish aka Dan, a thoughtless, ungainly student of hotel management. He enters into a top hotel in Delhi for internship. While his colleague Shiuli ((Banita Sandhu) is an attentive, caring and a sincere girl. One night a quirk incident lands Shiuli in hospital. When Dan came to know about the accident, he run to her rescue and devoted his time, energy, heart and mind fully in Shiuli’s recovery. It was a life-changing experiences.

Varun Dhawan delivers a power-packed performance. He sheds his popular Govinda image and gets into serious mode. This is Varun’s second grave performance after ‘Badlapur’. Varun has showed his credential as a thoughtful actor.

Banita Sandhu gives an electrifying performance. Shantanu Moitra’s music gives soul to the film. It is very soothing to the ears.

Shoojit Sircar’s direction, Juhi Chaturvedi’s script and Varun’s performance forms the basis of ‘October’.

In the nutshell, ‘October’ is a quiet, peaceful love story. No noise, no turbulence just flow with every rhythm of the film.
