I came to know Chetan Bhagat after some friends of mine told me about his book “One night at a call center.” I also worked in a call center that is why it was a great topic to get my attention but I never read or even saw its cover page. After sometime I read few interviews of the writer only then I got some info about the writer. I always took him as an intellectual who thinks. (Normally all human being think but few of them speak or write). Simply I liked him. I never expected him not to read between the lines when it comes to story, news or any legal agreement which he signed during the process of his engagement with the movie makers, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and ” Munna Bhai MBBS” fame director Raj Kumar Hirani. There they wrote the position where he would get the credit of his work. As per Hirani Chetan gave him right to change or modify his work.
So what the film is all about is it the brain child of Hirani or work of Chetan Bhagat. It will remain mystery. But what is hurting me is the work of the artists and the team of Hirani going unnoticed. They really performed well.
The producers have put the document on their website to clarify the truth. Hope both the parties reach to an agreement and let people watch the movie for the performance rather than the controversy.
It is a great movie of three friends who started their journey differently and achieve what normal people who do not see out of the books achieve. The movie is about how they lived their life? How they got their success. Amir Khan, Sharman Joshi, R.Madhavan, Kareena Kapoor and Boman Irani worked really well and hard. Its a great movie hope to write the full review in the next post.
