Movie Review: Right Yaa Wrong

Actors: Irrfan Khan, Sunny Deol

The second half is when Right Yaa Wrong makes the viewer feel like they’re watching a film; the twist hits right after the interval and things start moving faster. Sunny Deol is in control of his comeback vehicle but ends up driving Irrfan Khan to a much higher place. Wheelchair-bound and emotionally battered with full credit to a shoddily-shot blast-and-bullets sequence in the first half hour, Sunny Deol is looked after by his cheating wife Eesha Koppikhar and his cousin brother (I don’t know his name, and it’s not worth knowing), while Irrfan Khan plays true friend and good cop. Somebody tell these guys it takes a few pegs to act drunk unless your name is Johnnie Walker, because the dialogues get especially hammy in scenes like that drinking session one. The second half is racy, no credit to Konkona Sen even though she’s more at ease than she was in last week’s ATKJ?. Always a pleasure to have Govind Namdeo (Bhau Thakurdas Jhavle in Satya) around, and the fast-track court sequences show mercy to the audience.

The first half of Right Yaa Wrong is too contrived to be anything else, with everyone but Irrfan Khan hamming. Frustrated at his hopes of recovering from semi-paralysis having died a slow death and wanting to do something for his wife and kid, SD gets himself insured for 5 crore and pleads with Isha Koppikar and his cousin to kill him. Isha and cousin are having an affair before everyone’s eyes and only Sunny Deol doesn’t know because he can’t move around without his wheelchair. SD convinces them, and hatches a foolproof plan…

There’s not much Sunny Deol can do with a role like this and he’s definitely not getting any nominations for it. Irrfan Khan makes this movie very watchable and is its strongest point. Eesha Koppikhar sounds like she’s acting only when she’s talking to Sunny Deol, because that’s when she’s supposed to be faking it. Parikshit Sahni is too unassertive for a senior doctor (what’s he doing here anyway?), Govind Namdeo is convincing in any role, Sunny Deol’s cousin is weird in a lame way and Sunny Deol’s son is a kid you won’t grow to like. Director Neeraj Pathak knows what he’s trying to do but the script lets him down and only Irrfan Khan establishes his character comfortably. Wish they hadn’t included those  corny motivational dialogues and the sad background score, because neither evoke any kind of feeling in the audience. Thanks for not having songs in the movie. Right Yaa Wrong is partially incorrect.

    Sunny Deol has become useless. Irfan Khan is going places though.
