Lydian Nadhaswaram makes a strong debut and ‘Drums’ Sivamani’s soul-lifting tunes are value trying out, however ‘Atkan Chatkan’ falls flat as a result of lack of drama in its storyline
There’s a common enchantment a couple of rags-to-riches story; there may be sufficient drama on the outset for almost all viewers to search out resonance with such tales.
The problem with modern-day filmmakers conceptualising a script on this theme is that so many have tried it earlier than to various levels of success that such movies infuse an immediate feeling of déjà vu. Some strive the ‘previous wine in a brand new bottle’ trick, and relying on the filmmaker’s luck, it might be jackpot or bust!
Atkan Chatkan can also be marketed in a brand new bottle; the sticking level is that filmmaker Shiv Hare appears to have blended up his spirits earlier than pouring it.
The story follows Guddu (Lydian Nadhaswaram) and his pals Chuttan (Sachin Chaudhary), Madhav (Yash Rane) and Meethi (Tamanna Dipak).
Atkan Chatkan solid and crew
- Director: Shiv Hare
- Solid: Lydian Nadhaswaram, Sachin Chaudhary, Yash Rane, Aayesha Vindhara, Tamanna Dipak
- Storyline: A bunch of avenue youngsters overcome the chances to be taught and play music
A sequence of occasions deliver the 4 of them collectively; the quartet discover their sync in music. They produce beats out of something they contact and this brings them into the limelight. However there are hurdles to leap earlier than success can come to them.
Lydian Nadhaswaram, the boy surprise pianist, performs the position of an aspiring percussionist with maturity. Appearing might not be his strongest swimsuit, however he’s assured sufficient to rise to the problem and places on a strong present as Guddu.
Drums Sivamani’s musical rating is as spectacular as one can count on in a musical characteristic. It’s the spine of the movie’s narrative, gently nudging the story alongside and ably filling up for the emotion that’s absent within the script attributable to weak writing.
Working example about inefficient writing: tokenism may have been prevented. Like a gaggle of elite college students who don’t like the road youngsters getting consideration enjoying the token villains. These college students work out the worst doable plot villainy: bribing the children’ guardian to lock them up and breaking their makeshift percussion devices. There’s additionally a random story of an extended misplaced mom woven into the combination.
Nevertheless, Atkan Chatkan does have its excessive factors… just like the scene the place Guddu and his little sister hearken to the totally different sounds they hear as they go to sleep.
Nevertheless it fails to dwell on the numerous dramatic plot factors unfold all through the narrative. The movie meanders into the second half, making an attempt to work disaster torn adults into the combination, when as an alternative focussing on constructing extra drama across the story’s protagonists would have been the wiser selection.
Its distinctive background composition that depends closely on percussion makes Atkan Chatkan an attention-grabbing watch. Nevertheless, the movie stops wanting being a musical journey par excellence. The fault for it lies with the pen and never the drumsticks.
