Bollywood film review – Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene Rating: 2.5

sharafatBy Aryeman Raj

What’s it about?

The film takes on the theme of greed and covetousness and turns it into a pleasant satire. A saucy comedy about a commoner’s brush with the “D” gang, this is an original smile-inducing romp into the realm of comedy where errors define the mood, and the characters are not as interesting as the situations that the script tries to create for them.

Story & Screenplay:

Targeted as being a thriller, the film moves at a fast pace and keeps you engrossed with the twists and turns. The comedy angle is underplayed which could have enhanced Zayed Khan’s character. There are many liberties taken by the writer for the story-telling which are not digestible.



Zayed Khan as the nerdy Delhite keeps the performance bridled and likeable. He deserves better. Rannvijay as the Insignificant Other is delightfully droll. ‘Sharaafat…’ as a concept of proper conduct never seemed more like sharaarat, as the con game is played through the streets of Delhi. Tina Desai walks through her role competently.



Except for the ‘Selfie’ number, all other songs are dull.

Box-office rating:

With so many films releasing this week, this film will suffer the most due to poor marketing and ineffective star cast.
