The movie ‘Farrey’ is hitting theaters on November 24, and before you decide to watch it, here’s a quick review for you.
Background of ‘Farrey’
The word ‘Farrey’ stands for finding clever ways to cheat, outsmart the system, and, most importantly, do it without getting caught. In this film, directed by Soumendra Padhi, we dive into the world of elite kids aiming to cheat their way to success.
The storyline revolves around a group of rich kids and their counterparts from less privileged backgrounds in a high school setting. While the theme might sound familiar, ‘Farrey’ takes a different approach by focusing on character development and strong performances.
Director Soumendra Padhi, known for ‘Jamtara,’ brings his knack for delving into subjects deeply. The film introduces us to Niyati (played by Alizeh Agnihotri) in an orphanage, aspiring for a better life. On the other side, we have the wealthy Chhavi (Prasanna Bisht) and Prateek (Zeyn Shaw). The film’s uniqueness lies in how Niyati gets involved in what initially seems like a simple money-making scheme.
The standout feature of ‘Farrey’ is its cast. Alizeh Agnihotri, making her debut, shines in her role. Her realistic portrayal of Niyati, coupled with a no-makeup, de-glam look, adds authenticity. Prasanna Bisht as Chavi and Sahil Mehta as Aakash also deliver commendable performances, hinting at promising careers ahead.
The movie has a steady first half, but the real excitement kicks in during the second part after the interval. The fast-paced narrative keeps you on the edge of your seat, with unexpected twists from the characters. Importantly, there’s no forced love angle or unnecessary distractions, allowing the core story to shine.
‘Farrey’ is a solid effort that keeps the audience engaged. The fact that it’s based on a real-life event adds an extra layer of intrigue. The ensemble cast receives a solid A+ on the mark sheet for their performances in ‘Farrey.’
