This movie deals with Gouri Das (played by Vinay Pathak), who was a great freedom fighter. He joined Gandhian group, Vanar Sena to send secret messages to the freedom fighter during the freedom struggle.
Once he realizes that, he does not have his freedom fighter’s certificate to prove his work, he tries to obtain it. As everyone including his own son doubts his presence in freedom fight struggle, he wanted to get ‘Freedom File’, which is a collection of all the documents that can help to prove his work. Will he manage to get that certificate? What all the consequences and struggled he faced at the time of freedom fight forms the rest of the story.
Vinay Pathak did full justice to his role by bringing the seriousness and lightheartedness to the character at right time. Rajit Kapur and Vikram Gokhale did a good job. Other characters in this movie have limited screen presence.
Heart touching screenplay and story
Background score suited the theme of this movie
Admirable performances by the actors
The first half of this movie lacks punch and it slowly gains the pace
Cinematography is not up to the mark
Director Ananth Narayanan Mahadevan’s adoption on the story based on freedom fight is appreciable. Performances by the actors is refreshing. Director narrates the story in a extraordinary way, showcasing flash back and current situations at a right time.
Simple and the perfect entertainer to enjoy this Independence Day weekend.
