Kaagaz review :
A biographical comedy drama on Lal Bihari – a poor farmer from small village in Uttar Pradesh – who was declared dead on official paper (or Kaagaz as the title goes) but he fought the corrupt system for 18 long years to get his name and self respect restored in the Govt. records.
Pankaj Tripathi, in the lead role, is outstanding. So is Monal Gajjar as his wife. Director Satish Kaushik, who also plays a pivotal character, has lend his film a nice comic touch even as he exposes the serious rot in our system where a greedy relative can bribe a Government official to declare Lal Bihari dead just to usurp his property. Later, Bihari forms a political party of all such “dead on paper” mrutaks and contests elections with help from his local constituency MLA.
A perfectly cast Mita Vashisht, playing that role brilliantly, states in one scene “Raajneeti mein aise bakre paalne padte hain taaki sahi waqt pe unki qurbani di jaaye” So very true!!
Kaagaz has an uneven pace with an unnecessary item number tucked in; but it is a true story earnestly told. Most importantly, it has its dil and dimaag in the right place.
I am glad a hardcore commercial star like Salman Khan has produced it. A parting note for his fans : Dont miss his noteworthy “presence” at beginning and end of the film.
Wow! this is what I was expecting from Pankaj Tripathi and the remaining cast of Kaagaz movie.
Brilliant acting with the combination of such an amazing and inspiring story to not stop fighting for what is yours while keeping in mind that you will get it sooner or later. The songs in the movie are pretty great ,specially the song in the last ,that was an inspiring song for me.
You should watch this great movie.
This is such an Inspirational movie! I would say it’s a MUST watch for all age groups!! It really inspires alot! It teaches to Never Give Up, stay Determined. It takes time to achieve anything so don’t lose hope! Satyamev Jayate!!! It takes time but Truth finally wins!!
So Glad that they have taken up Lal Bihari’s story and made it a movie. I wasn’t aware of his story previously. This movie is such an Eye Opener!! I Really wish that this re-releases in theatres!
This Kaagaz film deserves National Award!!!! Everything about the movie is Exceptional! Each and every actor put up a Splendid performance!! The music added extra life to the movie!!
