Satramm Ramani’s Helmet, ZEE5’s newest providing, isn’t any higher than a badly produced advert movie for condom propagation. Ramani’s work is the final word in what a film shouldn’t be, by no means be, in reality. Coming after movies like Vicky Donor on sperm donation and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan on erectile dysfunction, each headlined by Ayushmann Khurrana, which spoke about intimate topics with utmost sensitivity, rigorously avoiding vulgarism, Helmet seems actually disappointing. A novel premise, although, utterly wasted by ham-handed remedy.
Shoddily scripted, Helmet sinks into unimaginable depths in nearly each discipline. Performances are poor, and Aparshakti Khurana, who performs the hero of Helmet, Fortunate, actually sleep walks by his function as one whose intense romantic emotions for the wealthy Rupali (Pranutan Bahl) take a beating from her sarcasm-oozing father. The younger man is ridiculed for his lack of training and first rate livelihood – pushing him to the precipice of ache. He performs in a wedding band, a occupation that’s low down in social hierarchy.
Apart from, the film is out of sync with fashionable India. Individuals are not hesitant to purchase a pack of condoms from a pharmacist, no approach. I’ve seen even younger ladies ask for one with out flinching, however Fortunate, “ordered” by Rupali to get a condom (or no intercourse please, she is agency) enters a medical store and picks up a bottle of shampoo, a packet of biscuits and what not solely to return with out what he was imagined to have stepped out for.
Anyway, with Rupali’s marriage to a wealthy Harvard man looming forward, a not-well-to-do Fortunate hits upon a plan make a fast buck by stealing cell phones from a transporting truck. He will get his two buddies, Sultan (Abhishek Banerjee) and Minus (Ashish Verma), to go alongside for the heist that turns right into a comedy of errors. When the trio open the stolen cardboard circumstances, they discover lots of of condom packs. Why not promote them, they surprise, hoping to make the perfect of a foul cut price.
The writing simply goes haywire from this juncture, with barbers and a motley group of males all roped in to promote Fortunate’s loot from a fictitious agency he units up, naming it Helmet. He and his buddies sprint about in two-wheelers donning a helmet, which serves each as publicity for his or her condoms and a defend to cover their identities. Clearly, they don’t want anyone to identify them promoting condoms, which they presume is a shameful technique of incomes cash. Woven into these bins of condom are foolish tales like intercourse with out the worry of being pregnant and the pleasure of this all. Girls come cuddling to their husbands on the sight of a pack! Can it get any worse?
The climax, when it comes, is so unbelievable that it simply knocks you down — and Helmet doesn’t assist!
