One-line Reviews (21)

They tried to put some commercial aspect by keeping an item no but not the music, choreography or performances are enjoyable.

Pritam's music is mostly enjoyable although I did find Vidya Balan's item number unnecessary.

Thirdly but most importantly, FKS actually gets converted into a worth watching film because of its two flawless performances by Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani wherein they both quietly surpass their own benchmarks set in their other famous masterpiece 3 IDIOTS.

FKS firstly becomes an enjoyable experience for everyone because of its emotional theme which talks about the most untouched or tense relationship in a middle class family that is between a father and his son.

The plot moves a little slowly, seems dull & going around in circles at some point.

After watching the movie you will realize that movies like 'Ferrari Ki Sawari' is exactly the reason that people like me turn into film critics :-)There is a pattern which has become very predictable with Bollywood movies and its gotten really old now.

Dialogues by Mr. Rajkumar Hirani are enjoyable.

Paresh Rawal shined in his small yet intense role.

Through the movie he is found crying and this become unbearable at the end.. Not a jolly watch as compared to the last few from Vidhu Vinod Chopra...

Though the music does not play much of an importance in the movie, it is enjoyable.

The storyline picks up this clue and reaches the climax after meandering through many twists and turns, some believable, some unbelievable but all being entertaining.

Here, comes the 'Ferrari' into picture as the most unexpected and the best ever help.

To add to that we have Boman Irani as Father of Rusy who himself was a very talented cricketer but was betrayed by his friend during the final selection and thus considers cricket a waste of time.

Again, this movie draws parallel to a relatively recent movie - Do Dooni Chaar (2010) in which the honest protagonist (Rishi Kapoor) finally decides against deviating from his ethics to fulfill the urgent monetary need and gets a pleasant surprise in the end when an unexpected solution emerges for the problem.

Overall this film is really worth watching!

Overall this is one rare Father –Son relationship Indian movie which explores the beauty of parental relationship with honesty and pride and promise to make this Ferrari ki Sawari more enjoyable.

My suggestion: Worth watching for the acting effort that Bomman Irani and Sharman have put in.

Also, it is most enjoyable when in a scene the media covers the news of a suicide of a young boy leaving the news of forged mass wedding and Sachin's ferrari.

Although this has nothing to do with the movie "Ferrari ki Sawaari", I mention this incident because father-son bonding (on which the movie is based) is always an exciting and emotional topic, a topic close to the heart & filled with anecdotes like the one above.

It was funny, entertaining, emotional, light hearted.

However, the writing in the first-hour, is extremely slow.
