'How could the CBFC give it a U/A certificate?' - was what most conservative minds pondered.


But it will take non orthodox moves like these and films like Vicky donor to bring change and attention to so called'taboo' topics.


Plot - VIcky Arora(Ayushmaan) is a jobless young man who knows his way out but still prefers laziness over work.


He doesn't want to do small odd jobs just for the sake of quick bucks. He consumes more money than he brings in to his house which is shared by his conservative mom and relatively modern grandma. As a result, he is at the receiving end of his mother's taunts and grandma's ladd pyaar.


Meanwhile Dr.Chaddha, an infertility specialist is facing problems finding his Mr. Right - a sperm donor with an adequate sperm count, a good family background, good looking and talented. He notices Vicky's smartness and on doing a history check comes to know that his forefathers had mastered the art of industrial production of progeny with output in some cases being as high as 17. They still couldn't beat Drithrasthra from mahabharata. Anyways, so he convinces his Mr. Right to donate his precious little champs, which usually get wasted. And in return he can have his bucks.


Everything's fine till he pataoes this divorced Bong from the bank(not the sperm bank you perv, the regular commercial bank where we store our maal). To ab kya hoga? Kuch nahi. its pretty predictable but, I'll let you have the little bit of suspense.


Script, Screenplay, characterization:


The pace of the script is moderate enough for you to feel at ease and never lose interest at the same time. Though some scene s could have been more funny. The script addresses the major issue here very well. The strongest conservatives would have a change of opinion after watching the movie. Sperm donation has been shown in a bubbly, healthy, positive and objective way. They have successfully avoided the cheapness that could have been incorporated in such a film. The typical Delhi/ Punjabi lifestyle and attitudes have been portrayed very naturally. The actors chosen to portray the characters just blend in with the script  perfectly. The middle class setting of the characters, their urgent monetary needs, their workplaces, their insecurities, their emotions works in perfect sync with the theme and provide a solid grip to the story. A large audience would unconsciously relate to the characters' lives in some or the other way. Mr Chaddha's obsession with sperm comes as a handy entertainment tool. Look carefully at his car's interiors, his dialogues, his actions, his office, his care for the'fresh donation':P, and you'll figure out why I chose this title for the review. The cinematography is simple. Modest locations frequented by the common man mostly  are visible in the shots which as I earlier said holds the movie together, gives it a nice pace, a nice flow. The script is essentially funny, though does have some lame jokes in the beginning. There are though a lot of scenes which make up for it. The sometimes strong, sometimes weak bonding of saas bahu(i.e. Vicky's mom and grandma), their drinks together, their talk with the Bongs, their love for alcohol tickle you, make you smile and laugh. Ayushman is a typical Delhi boy in this - he knows he's cool, loves to go to pubs, get drunk, patao girls(though hes not a tharki), places laziness above low class work. Yami Gautam is a divorced banker who is cautious about getting into a relationship, ignores Ayushman as he makes attempts to hit on her. She belongs to an elitist Bong family which wants her to marry a Bong.


Performance: Ayushman! Dude! You rock! Not for a second will you even realize that this is his debut film. He fits in the character very well. Performances like these bring the character out from the paper on to the screen. He is superbly at ease with being a lukkha, * fighting with his mom, loving his *daadi, wearing the street smartness, loving cricket, having teenage fun at the pub, shooing away his chipkoo yet sexy neighbor who pines for his love, dealing with Dr. Chaddha – ignoring him, yielding to his persuasion, submitting his donation in a bottle, accepting gifts from Dr. Chaddha, lying about the source of his income, flirting with the beautiful bank officer(Yami – looks like she has been using all those beauty creams herself), persuading her for marriage, earning her trust, loving her truly, flattering her Bong father by glorifying Bengal and Bongs – everything – he just does this all awesomely. And he also has sung and composed his own song which features in this movie. Dr.Chaddha – played by Anu Kapoor – hats off man! You can feel his insanity, his obsession, his eagerness in his performance. Dr Chaddha talks about sperms, dreams about them, lives with them – for him, they are nothing less than gold. His restlessness to persuade Vicky to donate his precious magicians is really hilarious. He even draws a map and explains history to him explaining Vicky that he is a pure Aryan breed and his sperms are very valuable. Anu Kapoor’s act is simply superb, even in emotional scenes where he is required to lend Vicky some emotional support and this time it’s not in return of sperms. Talking about Yami – you won’t focus much on her act, but yes its worth noting considering its her debut act as well. She has nicely played the pretty bong who is apprehensive of relationships because of a divorce. She doesn’t give in to Vicky easily. It needs more than just simple tricks for him to make her fall for him. Vicky’s mom and grandma –form a great on screen unique pair – lovable to watch.


All in all, it makes for a good watch except for some scenes which have been dragged on a bit. If you are tired of the clichéd movies and if you haven’t seen something uniquely different since a long time, go watch Vicky’s generosity.
