Lydian Nadhaswaram makes a stable debut and ‘Drums’ Sivamani’s soul-lifting tunes are price trying out, however ‘Atkan Chatkan’ falls flat because of the lack of drama in its storyline
There’s a common attraction a couple of rags-to-riches story; there may be sufficient drama on the outset for almost all viewers to search out resonance with such tales.
The difficulty with modern-day filmmakers conceptualising a script on this theme is that so many have tried it earlier than to assorted levels of success that such movies infuse an prompt feeling of déjà vu. Some strive the ‘previous wine in a brand new bottle’ trick, and relying on the filmmaker’s luck, it may very well be jackpot or bust!
Atkan Chatkan can also be marketed in a brand new bottle; the sticking level is that filmmaker Shiv Hare appears to have blended up his spirits earlier than pouring it.
The story follows Guddu (Lydian Nadhaswaram) and his mates Chuttan (Sachin Chaudhary), Madhav (Yash Rane) and Meethi (Tamanna Dipak).
Atkan Chatkan forged and crew
- Director: Shiv Hare
- Forged: Lydian Nadhaswaram, Sachin Chaudhary, Yash Rane, Aayesha Vindhara, Tamanna Dipak
- Storyline: A bunch of avenue youngsters overcome the chances to study and play music
A sequence of occasions carry the 4 of them collectively; the quartet discover their sync in music. They produce beats out of something they contact and this brings them into the limelight. However there are hurdles to leap earlier than success can come to them.
Lydian Nadhaswaram, the boy marvel pianist, performs the position of an aspiring percussionist with maturity. Appearing is probably not his strongest go well with, however he’s assured sufficient to rise to the problem and places on a stable present as Guddu.
Drums Sivamani’s musical rating is as spectacular as one can anticipate in a musical function. It’s the spine of the movie’s narrative, gently nudging the story alongside and ably filling up for the emotion that’s absent within the script because of weak writing.
Working example about inefficient writing: tokenism might have been averted. Like a bunch of elite college students who don’t like the road youngsters getting consideration enjoying the token villains. These college students work out the worst potential plot villainy: bribing the youngsters’ guardian to lock them up and breaking their makeshift percussion devices. There’s additionally a random story of a protracted misplaced mom woven into the combo.
Nonetheless, Atkan Chatkan does have its excessive factors… just like the scene the place Guddu and his little sister hearken to the completely different sounds they hear as they go to sleep.
However it fails to dwell on the numerous dramatic plot factors unfold all through the narrative. The movie meanders into the second half, trying to work disaster torn adults into the combo, when as a substitute focussing on constructing extra drama across the story’s protagonists would have been the wiser alternative.
Its distinctive background composition that depends closely on percussion makes Atkan Chatkan an attention-grabbing watch. Nonetheless, the movie stops in need of being a musical journey par excellence. The fault for it lies with the pen and never the drumsticks.
