Khandani Shafkhana Movie Review: Sonakshi Sinha Is the Winner in a Slow Comedy on Sex

Khandani Shafkhana Movie Review:Young girl, aged five-six,She then loudly pronounces the forbidden word - SEX — her innocent voice. His audacity meets an angry mother, who blasts him and takes him away from his maternal uncle, a harem who treats sex-related illnesses.
Years later, the little girl, now an older woman and has her mind, ends up in the shoes of her home sole bread, her late maternal uncle, and insists on running her sex clinic. She soon realizes that although the years have passed, the public's strong reaction to the word 'sex' remains intact. But, like a true Bollywood heroine, she takes it upon herself to change the world and start a conversation about this hush-hush topic.
Like her character in the film, Sonakshi Sinha as Babita or Baby Bedi, features in the 2-hour-16-minute-long Khandni Shafkhana. She is passionate and focused on getting her family out of the financial crisis with the help of sex clinics, regardless of the molestation that comes with it. Sonakshi's expressions in the film are blatant, which also proves that she has come a long way since her debut in 2010 as an actor.
But only such a good actor can do it when you get a loosely written, loosely written screenplay. Apart from a few good lines, the dialogues of Khandani Shafkhana are mediocre. Writer Gautam Mehra takes codgels to make people comfortable with sex talks, but somewhere he doesn't seem comfortable with it himself.
For the most part of the film, the characters just thrashed around the bush, including everything - from uneasy expressions, nose-flashes to Khan-Ka-Naam-Doaba-dia talks - but they don't meet until The second half of the film until you arrive.
Khandani Shafkhana is progressively slow. It takes a lot of time to build a theme; So much so that by the time the characters start talking about it, by the time you have lost all interest in it. The first part of the film is the one who has to be brave to bring the audience to a comparatively interesting second half. And that's not saying much. Do not expect any cliffhangers or surprises; The film is as predictable as it could be.
However, Khandani Shafkhana's saving grace is its actor. Director Shilpi Dasgupta gives Sonakshi a soulful role, which allows her to deliver. Sona, along with her lazy, frustrated brother Bhoshit Bedi, played by Varun Sharma, preserve the film.
Varun manages to snatch some laughter from the audience, giving some good jokes in an otherwise scandalous film. But for an actor who displayed impeccable comic timing in films like Fukrey and Dilwale, Varun did not get much use in Khandani Shafkhana. Its limited screen time makes you ask for more.
Badshah plays the role of a popular rapper, Gabru Gatak in the film, who is similar to his real-life personality. Donning cheerful dazzles, gold chains and shiny outfits, it becomes difficult to distinguish the king's rapper from his character. Kulbhushan Kharbanda plays Baby's maternal uncle, who appears mostly in flashback scenes.
Apart from these actors, the makers have played Annu Kapoor to play the role of a lawyer who is accused of handing over the property of Mamaji, to her sex clinic, Baby. In the process, he tries to convince her of the importance of the sex clinic and how rich the heir is. Vicky Donor plays Annu in the film, Dr. Not much different from Chadha.
And though the makers of Khandani Shafkhana fail to recreate the magic that Shoojit Sircar's Vicky Donor did, Annu stays true to his character and, for brief moments, makes you smile.
Khandani Shafkhana is another example which proves that Bollywood is out of the box. But the subject alone is not enough, the key is to present it in an engaging manner, with a dose of entertainment. The film tries to do this, but does not make the cut.
Khandani Shafkhana is one of the best to see once and only and only a treat for Sonakshi Sinha fans.
