Phillauri Cast: Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma, Mehreen Kaur
Direction: Anshai Lal
Duration: 2-hours 18-minutes
Kanan (Suraj Sharma) is Manglik so he is forced to marry a tree before marrying his childhood friend. After this unreal marriage, a ghost Shashi (Anushka) trails him claiming that she resides in that tree. Who is Shashi? What is her story?
Phillauri is directed by Anushka Sharma who debuted in direction with critics acclaimed movie ‘NH-10’. The movie is based on a cute love story of a spirit ‘Shashi’ who resides in a tree. Coincidently Kanan marries the same tree and feels very afraid when he comes to know he had married a ghost. But his whole life gets changed after knowing the back-story of Sashi.
The first-half of the film is filled with many funny moments but it is only in the second half when the focus shifts to Anushka-Diljit’s story in Phillaur (Punjab). Here Diljit plays a local singer, while Anushka is from a well-maintained family where things like singing and dancing are not appreciated.
Dosanjh impressed everyone in his Debut movie ‘Udta Punjab’ and has continued his streak, his screen presence is just amazing. The film is quite slow and filled with a lot of typical Pujabines. However only Anushka-Diljit’s part is delightful.
This light-hearted movie is not that extraordinary but the romance of Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh will definitely win your hearts.
