In Gone Kesh, Enakshi is the ambitious lower middle-class small town girl, alopecia is the disease she is diagnosed with and dancing is her ambition. Gone Kesh is about her and her parents struggle to get her married. The basic Indian family struggle.
Shweta Tripathi, Vipin Sharma, Deepika Amin, Jeetendra Kumar all are exceptionally good with their performance.
The let down of the film is a generic story told in a nonlinear fashion because if in opening sequence of the film you reveal that Enakshi is bald when she is trying to get married and in flashback try to evoke emotions in the audience with her struggle with hair loss and apparent baldness and continuously keep on switching between past and present it is always going to go downhill.
Director Qasim Khallow tries to enlighten you about alopecia but fails to make you feel with his I-want-to-break-free film.
The music is unremarkable. Editing could have been crispier, set and costume department have done their job. The makeup of bald as coat Shweta is remarkable.
We give Gone Kesh 2.5 stars.
An ambitious young girl. Faces a disease. Gets ignored by the world. Hits rock bottom. Proves her worth. Gets accepted with love. The end. ...2.5
