Starring – Emraan Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary.
Directed by – Soumik Sen
Runtime – 2 Hours, 8 Minutes
The Story in short(without spoilers) – Why Cheat India tells the story of a con-man Rakesh Singh (Emraan Hashmi) who gives the intelligent students a chance to earn quick money by making them write exams for rich but undeserving students. By doing so, he has created an empire of his own. His life changes when he crosses path with a middle-class bright student Satyendra Dubey aka Sattu and his family. What Happens Next is what the film is all about.
Emraan Hashmi – Emraan Hashmi will keep you hooked throughout the film with his impressive performance, he is at ease & confident playing neither the hero nor the villain.
Shreya Dhanwanthary – Debutant Shreya Dhanwanthary is sweet & puts up a nice performance. She shines more in the 2nd half than the 1st.
What’s Good –
– Emraan’s Dialogue Delivery and some Clap-Worthy Punch Lines related to Indian Education System
– Debutant Shreya Dhanwanthary Breakdown Scene in 2nd Half
– How can we miss the songs, when it comes to Emraan Hashmi, almost all the songs are fantastic.
What’s Disappointing –
– Pathetic Screenplay
– RAW and Lazy Editing
– Poor Direction
– Fast Paced / made in a hurry
Is it Worth Watching – Considering its strong social message it is supposed to convey, the film fails to leave an impact. It’s a One-Time Watch only and only if you are a Fan of Emraan Hashmi.
