Here’s our full detailed movie review of ‘Made In China’ Starring Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy.
Starcast – Rajkummar Rao, Boman Irani, Mouni Roy
Directed By – Mikhil Musale
Runtime – 2 hours 10 minutes
Made in China is a film that highlights this entrepreneurial spirit through the story of a Gujarati businessman, because where else will a story on innovation and business be based? The comedy-drama also marks Mikhil Musale’s Bollywood directorial debut.
The Story – The Chinese Prime Minister is found dead during his visit to India. The cause of death is linked to a soup the politician consumed just minutes before he dropped dead. As we delve into the origin of this mysterious drink, we come across the journey of Raghuvir Mehta’s (Rajkummar Rao) success. A young entrepreneur with many creative ideas, Raghu fails to find success through his many ventures. A trip to China, however, changes his life. There he forms ties with a shady businessman who sells him ‘Magic Soup’ – a sexual performance enhancer that Raghu intends to sell in India. With the help of the sexologist Dr. Vardhi (Boman Irani), Raghu finds a market for his drink and a method to spread awareness about sex education.
Made In China has a dry first half and one expects the film to get better in the second half. Sadly that doesn’t happen. There are too many jumps in the narrative and it’s difficult to understand the story properly as the film is confusing. A few scenes give a deja vu of Khandaani Shafakhana, which is not a good thing.
On the positive side, a few scenes leave a mark. China is shown beautifully and realistically. And Rajkummar Rao is great as the Gujarati businessman with a never say die spirit. Mouni Roy looks sizzling and gives a decent performance. Boman Irani emerges as the best performer in the film. Paresh Rawal leaves a tremendous mark in a special appearance. Gajraj Rao is wasted. Sumeet Vyas, Manoj Joshi, and Sanjay Goradia deliver fine performances. Amyra Dastur gets no scope.
All in all, Made In China boasts of an excellent star cast and a central idea that has flaws but still could have made for an entertaining flick. Instead, the direction and script spoil the show!
