Abundantia Entertainment and Vikram Malhotra’s MITRON is an adaptation of 2016 Telugu film PELLI CHOOPULUIS. Set in the backdrop of Guajarati milieu and traces the personal journey of Jai (Jackky Bhagnani) and Avni (Kritika Kamra), as they both find themselves and discover the true meaning of friendship in the journey. Jai who is brought up with middle class values has a take it easy approach towards to life. He is lazy and wants to become a Chef but rather than doing the hard work he along with his friends Raunak (Pratik Gandhi) and Deepu (Shivam Parekh) find different and unique ways to make it big, which does not go very well with his father Neeraj Sood. Accidently he meets Avni (Kritika Kamra) an ambitious girl who wants to do big things in life but is curtailed down by her father. Avni’s dream of starting a business and Jai’s dream of becoming a chef comes together and what happens next, will Jay and Avni part their ways? Will their successful collaboration end? is what the film is about. This light hearted comedy is a fun and exciting watch as there is no dull moment and has a humorous comedy going on throughout the film.
Technically the film is good, Cinematographer Manoj Kumar Khatoi captures the beautiful city of Gujarat shown in the film wonderfully. Editing by Shachindra Vats is good. Music by Sameer Uddin goes well with the film; Kamariya and Sawarne Lage are the pick from the album.
Performances wise all the actors perform their role with complete sincerity. Jackky Bhagnani portrays his happy go lucky but lazy guy role nicely. Kritika Kamra is good in her debut film; she not only looks gorgeous but promises that she is here to stay. The chemistry between the lead pair is amazing. Prateik Babbar who portrays the role of Vikram has also done justice to his role. Other actors like Neeraj Sood, Shivam Parekh and Pratik Gandhi fit in their role very well. The will make you laugh with their comic timing and dialogues.
Director Nitin Kakkar does a good job with MITRON, he has made sure to keep a perfect balance between humour, comedy and emotions which make the film very entertaining to watch. He makes the film with sincerity and complete honestly and gives a complete family entertainer.
At the box-office
The film has taken a slow start and will hope that the word of mouth picks up to give some sort of respectability at the ticket windows.
