(Crisp) Movie Review: DOCTOR G by FENIL SETA

After a fine beginning, Doctor G falls. The first half is all over the place and one wonders if it’ll get any better in the second half. Thankfully, it does. An important track dominates the last 30-40 minutes and it’s quite intriguing. The makers also raise some important issues and attempt to normalize conversations. A few scenes are novel and have never been seen in a Hindi film before. Ayushmann Khurrana, as always, is in top form. This is a tailor-made role for him and he slips into the part effortlessly. Rakul Preet Singh is fine but her track is weak and she gets forgotten after a point. Shefali Shah is excellent, as expected. Sheeba Chadha shines, especially in the second half. Ayesha Kaduskar (Kavya) is a surprise. Indraneil Sengupta and Abhay Mishra (Chaddi) leave a mark. Priyam Saha (Dr Jenny), Shraddha Jain (Dr Kumudlatha Pamulparthi Diwakaran aka KLPD) deliver decent performances but are let down by the writing, especially in the first half. Songs are forgettable. All in all, Doctor G is a fun and enlightening watch and can be seen once.

My rating – *** out of 5!
