Kaagaz movie starring Pankaj Tripathi is a great time binding the story together!

Kaagaz is about a very simple film around the controversy around the country, the film revolves around the real story of Lal Bihari Mritak who is played as Bharat Lal Mritak by Pankaj Tripathi. So as to order and obtain a loan from a bank, Bharat is asked to submit some kind of guarantee. In the quest for acquiring the guarantee, Bharat contacts his paternal family after years.

Instead of resolving his existing problem, he gets to know how his own relatives declared him dead on paper to grab his land illegally. This initiates the struggles for Bharat Lal as he invents ways to prove himself alive. Will he be able to fight and do that or he’ll have to be dead on paper forever? Kaagaz is 2011’s Pankaj Kapur starrer Chala Mussaddi… Office Office based on a similar storyline. Now, this is not exactly the same because Satish Kaushik backs the entire story with the authenticity it demands. Kaushik ensures to keep the beginning and the end overwhelming featuring a beautiful poem, written by Aseem, recited by Salman Khan.

Average editing, slow direction and the simple story’s monotonous nature remain to be the most roadblocks in this otherwise entertaining film. There are jokes made around ‘death’. Kaagaz starring Pankaj Tripathi by your side for such a character is a gift we should not take for granted. We do not have many actors who could pull this role with such ease. Be it giving a quirky analogy comparing loan to a dog or asking a 70-odd-years-old “Chacha, aap hai abhi?” (Uncle, you still alive?), Pankaj Tripathi acts every scene like it’s his first.

Monal Gajjar is good and charming just in her simple smile to lit-up even the dullest of scenes. She also disguises herself as this ‘sanskari’ wife from 80s perfecting almost every trait. Songs are good with talents such as Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik. Rahul Jain’s Jug Jug Jiyo is fine, but its placement was a deal-breaker. The background score is a mixed bag.

Kaagaz Movie with Pankaj Tripathi acts well, his scope of acting creates a connect which remains throughout the film.

Kaagaz releases on 07 January, 2021.
