Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar - A Slap On the Face For Calling Them Overrated!

Actors who were considered flop star kids, gave one of the best performances of 2021.

Meet Parineeti as Sandeep and Arjun as Pinky. Yup! Quirky and interesting from the start!

The movie starts when Parineeti, a head honcho of a bank, becomes a murder target. She is saved by fluke by Arjun a.k.a. Pinky. Now Pinky, who himself isn’t sure what on earth is happening in the first place, feels all betrayed. They both are now trying to evade the killers who are hired by none other than Sandy’s boyfriend. Of course, to give a slightly emotional touch to Sandy’ character, she is in the first trimester of her pregnancy. How these two pole apart characters get together and work to escape is the gist of the movie.

It surely has its quirks and the attention to detail is commendable. The scene where Parineeti who is in a jumpsuit and on the run, had to use a super filthy washroom gave me the jitters!

I am sure the girls who have watched this will agree, its painful to watch!

When she has morning sickness or when she meets Neena and starts crying because she feels utterly helplessness. Notice her chipped nail polish in the end too. The movie seemed very close to reality and yet has the commercial elements which are required for a successful movie. Dibakar Banerjee is clear in his thoughts and it shows.

I want to add here that I had absolutely loved them both in Ishaqzaade. Not so surprisingly, I am also a huge fan of Hasi Toh Phasee. The way Parineeti played these characters was marvelous. I can see the same Parineeti in this one. She knew what she was doing.

Somewhere she had lost her momentum. and I must say, it feels good to see her back in her element.

Arjun on the other hand, plays a character who is rugged and raw. He didn’t hesitate to slap Sandy when he thought she was in on the murder plot. May be because he plays a cop, it came easily to the character. However, to see Arjun play this harsh character with ease was a revelation.


Jaideep Ahlawat as Tyagi, Raghubir Yadav as Uncle, Neena Gupta as Aunty have all played their parts very well. Special mention to Rahul Kumar who plays Munna. You will know why when you watch the movie 😊.


I give it 3.5 stars. Do let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
