Review of Dry Day: Jitendra Kumar Was Told “You’re The Next Ayushmann Khurrana,” And Regretfully, He Believed It For A Film That Was As Wasteful As A Drunken Conversation!

You know what makes a drunken conversation the best? You have no idea when, how, or with whom you are conversing, let alone what you are talking about! You will make sense occasionally, and you will make an effort to make sense other times. Even though most of the topics you discuss would be completely absurd in 2023, you are still free to discuss them since you are high. These topics would primarily be the unmet aspirations of the past. In fact, the identical inebriated conversation appears in the movie Dry Day, starring Jitendra Kumar!


Even while it may sound harsh, inconsiderate, and cruel, that is exactly what it is. As a movie enthusiast, I have the utmost respect for artists, and Saurabh Shukla especially, but his directing is as muddled and purposeless as a drunken discussion.


The nicest thing about this entire “talli” conversation is that, despite talking complete garbage, one would not think it was spoken, and they most likely won’t remember it the next day. Similarly, I have to work far too hard to recall anything I saw in the last two hours and I can’t recall a single thing about this movie! And believe me, writing this has been just as difficult and demanding for me as it has been for you, despite how long it may appear to read.


Review of the film Dry Day: A Script Study


Here, let’s establish two crucial details regarding this movie. 1. Gannu is an alcoholic, a problem that this man in his 30s comfortably places on his pals. He even likes to think that his shortcomings are a reflection of the people he spends time with. It goes without saying that he will be faulty since they are. The notion that people tend to imitate those with whom they associate could be a compelling observation for a hypothesis of social homo sapiens. However, the manner it is initially established in the movie is a little absurd.

  1. Gannu would like to become a politician, but he would like to begin as a corporator. Despite her father’s advice not to wed an alcoholic—something she found endearing when courting him and troublesome afterward—his wife attempts to lecture him about his bad habits! Women, hehe.


Review of the Film Dry Day: Star Performance


The lead actor Jitendra Kumar was reportedly told—possibly while intoxicated—that he was the Ayushmann Khurrana of the OTT. Regrettably, he took the statement to heart and attempted to emulate the actor, putting aside his natural ability to play an ordinary Indian man going through a difficult time in his 30s. Whether he played Jitu Bhaiya in Kota Factory, Sachiv Ji in Panchayat, or Aman Tripathi in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the actor changed into these relatable characters with ease.


But suddenly Gannu from Dry Day shows up, a larger-than-life hero who is straining too hard; is this Jitendra’s failure now? Most likely not, given his attempt to salvage this rushed narrative. Perhaps this was the way his character was modelled, or perhaps there is still time for him to portray convincingly as larger-than-life heroes. He struggles naturally; heroism, not so much.


Review of the film Dry Day: Direction, Music


The person who was given credit for writing the screenplay for Satya and other well-received films is Saurabh Shukla. He became a director, although he hasn’t accomplished anything noteworthy. He is instantly enthralled with this political/social satire, which features possibly the most awkward dialogue and the most bewildered main character of the decade. The movie doesn’t make clear if Gannu wants to campaign against alcoholism in his community because he wants to be a politician or if he genuinely wants to change and views his addiction as a serious issue.


Gannu’s wife, played by Shriya Pilgaonkar, want to abort her child because her husband is an alcoholic. Her character adds, “Thank God,” though. “You didn’t wear a condom that day,” she says to her husband as he battles habit. This decade’s most peculiar character arc features the silliest dialogue.


Review of the film Dry Day: The Final Word


After you’re wasted, words are merely blabbering sounds creating sentences that make no sense at all; the same is true for this entire movie, minute by minute. With a singular objective, it seeks to be a potent political satire a la Well Done Abba. It mimics the melody and lyrics of songs like Peepli Live and Welcome To Sajjanpur, but it doesn’t get very far. Nevermind. Simply watch it and then go to bed. Most likely a restful night’s sleep.
