Govinda fans around the globe will love this situational slapstick comedy.
FryDay is a story of one sunny Friday when Gagan Kapoor (Govinda) who is having an extramarital affair with Bina (Digangana Suryavanshi) who is also ditching her husband and they decide to spend some quality time together when Gangan’s wife (Prabhleen Sandhu) leaves for Shimla. At the same time, Rajiv Chabbra (Varun Sharma) a water purifier salesman knocks at the door while the two lovebirds are having some alone time. Taking this three-wheel drive to one rocky but comical adventure.

Only Govinda can make something repetitive look fresh every single time. Govinda does what he does best. He mimics, he improvises, he orates his vintage 5-6 lines in one single breath. The problem with FryDay is the same that was with Indian cricket team in the 1990s. In the 1990s only Sachin Tendulkar was Team India’s lifeline and in FryDay Govinda is the sole lifeline. Varun Sharma again plays that “Bechara-sidha-sadha guy” and that raises doubts about his ability to play any other role. The rest of the cast have done their part just like the way we submitted our assignment, for namesake.
The movie is a slow-burner and entertains only when Govinda is on screen. The dialogues of Govinda are what makes you laugh and that too mainly because of his delivery because lines from the rest of the cast sometimes even fail to make you giggle.
Abhishek Dogra’s direction is okay but lacks the charm of Dolly Ki Doli. A weak script and less emphasis on dialogues of the cast apart from Govinda will hurt FryDay.
Watch the film if you want some dose of Govinda.
We give FryDay 2.5 stars with a kink, especially for Govinda’s slapstick comedy.
