20 minutes into Kaashi and you will be overwhelmed with 4 songs and very amateur acting from whoever you see on the screen including the otherwise a very good actor Sharman Joshi. The rest 113 minutes all you want to do is exit the theatre.
Kaashi, starring Sharman Joshi as Kaashi, is a tale of a loving brother in search of his sister Ganga with help of a journalist, Devani played by Aishwarya Devan.
Even though the plot seems interesting the director and actor lacked the interest to shoot for it. This small budget film looks like a small budget film cause of lack of sincerity from everyone in this movie. The movie also has a courtroom drama which is now like a Badshah song (has to be there in every movie and that takes away the novelty factor). The movie has a plot twist where it demands your attention but that comes very late in the film and can’t save the film from drowning in Ganga.
What was Sharman Joshi undoing was the amazing portrayal of a man of the same dom lineage by Vicky Kaushal in Masaan which was more human-like. Sharman’s Kaashi is happy burning bodies on banks of Kaashi and yet his always angry about something, but there is no explanation of why he is such a HULK?
The journalist Devani, Kaashi’s mom and dad plus some extras are funny and that’s not by any intention. In courtroom drama the reins of the scene are taken by the veterans like Manoj Joshi, Manoj Pahwa, Akhilendra Mishra and the Kaashi finally makes you watch it.
Director tries to make a thriller like Shutter Island and the director was thrilled himself after watching the final cut of the film and hence didn’t even bother to promote it.
We give Kaashi 1 star and that too for the efforts taken by Sharman Joshi to sharpen the spoon.
You will agree to it when you see (PLEASE DON’T) it.
