John Abraham’s debut production venture is ‘Vicky Donor’ which has a tagline “I am a sperm donor”. A Hindi movie introduces a rare and daring subject in 21st century modern-social South Asian society moviegoers but thought-provoking simultaneously.
To make the movie looks interesting for viewers and worth-profiting from viewer’s middle-age pockets, and also to reduce the establishment of kingdom of boredom towards less-bearing serious subject, the director chose the romantic-comedy flavor to convey the message in stimulating way…
By intending to watch, you think it’s a naughty B-movie about sex and sperm, but watching this movie will in fact propel you to do bad things in good way for others. (I say bad thing in a sense that from religious sense, masturbation is unlawful in my religion, Islam)
Coming back to movie, Vicky is a Punjabi munda who is jobless but not colorless. His widowed mom Mrs. Arora runs a beauty parlor. Vicky is caught in fertility doctor Dr.Baldev Chaddha’s eye and offers him money to donate sperm. He refuses the offer and after his many efforts, Vicky finally agrees. Meanwhile, he finds his girlfriend, a Bengali banker and marries after convincing their cultured conservative parents. Watch yourself now to whom will he donate the sperm? :P
Brilliant direction from Shoojit Sircar after 7-year comeback from 2005-movie ‘Yahaan’. Very impactful dialogues penning by journalist Juhi Chaturvedi. Movie see 2 superb debuts; popular TV presenter Ayushmaan Khurana & model-come-TV actress beautiful Yami Gautam. Simply awesome acting and good acting prospects. One more cast is important to mention who was the main cast, culprit and life savior at the same time, Anu Kapoor showed his versatility in acting like always. ‘Pani Da Rung’ was obviously the best number, in fact the movie is one of best I have seen in 2012.
Sometimes the story is everything. A mere 5-crore-rupees movie earned 50 crore rupees due to a rare subject on which film makers dare to make film due to less attraction of viewers and low profits.
Movie Status: Gives social message “masturbate for others” ;P
