Sunny Deol’s debut directorial film reminds us of his debut film ‘Betaab’ as it also opens in the attractive mountains of north India.
The film which stars debutant Karan Deol and Sahher Bambba and it is based on a video blogger Saher Sethi who embarks on a tedious trek with mountaineer Karan Sehgal.
A young Karan Sehgal (Karan Deol) runs a trekking company in Manali called ‘Camp Ujhi’, which is famous among tourists and celebrities. At the same time, back in Delhi, India’s top vlogger Saher (Sahher Bambba) is looking to escape from an annual family reunion. She manages to bag the assignment to review ‘Camp Ujhi’. Also at the same time, she is quite sure that the camp experience is quite a scam and is determined to bust it.
The film discovers a typical love-hate encounter between the lead pair which you will observe in most of the first part of the film. In the whole film, there is not much of the treat to the eyes apart from the stunning sights of the Himachal.
The lead characters don’t have much of the spark to be rooted for. Saher who is a vlogger and an aspiring singer but she is not seen committed to any of them. In most parts, she has been cribbing and ranting about how difficult the trek is. Karan’s business is growing but he is barely involved in it.
Though the chemistry between them is not so up to the mark but in the acting department, they are promising despite their characters are loosely written.
Karan Deol honestly portrays the role of an orphaned youngster, who grew up in the hills. He is good in the emotional scenes but can be a pro in the dialogue delivery in mere future. Although, he looks quite far stretched in the heavy-duty action scenes and the natural wave is not seen in them.
Sahher Bambba, the leading lady of the film is confident and glam at the same time. She performs the emotional scenes well but can do well when it comes to comedy.
The film is an innocent love story but the lack of spark in chemistry makes it unable to create memorable moments.
Altogether, the film could have been better of the characters were not loose and the storyline would have a bit meatier. Watch out for the new debutants in town!
