Film Review


Himesh Reshammiya is a very talented Music Director and Composer but as far as acting is concerned the same is not his cup of tea. No matter whether he is making romance, doing comedy, or singing a song; his expression almost remains the same. 


Himesh starting his acting carrier with Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005) the film became very popular, especially amongst youngsters. However, it was Emraan Hashmi who grabbed the limelight. 


Himesh also tried his luck in Karzzzz (2008) which was a remake of the movie Karz (1980) starring Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim, and Simi Grewal. Himesh did a bit well however a poor screenplay and other bad aspects did a better job. 


As stated earlier, Himesh is a talented Music director and composer so you can bear him in a five-minute music video, but Himesh's pathetic acting becomes difficult to bear in the entire film.


'Radio' has been given a modern and youthful look and has been made keeping in mind the generation clinging to Facebook, and Twitter, but the question arises whether it likes Himesh as a generation actor?




This simple story is presented in a complex manner by director Ishaan Trivedi. He has divided the film into 15 chapters like a book and named each chapter. He has adopted this method to hide the shortcomings of the film i.e. weak story and acting of Himesh. It seems that they have added a lot of pieces that are not in a fixed order. This presentation is experimental and good, but not jarringly liked by all.


Himesh Reshammiya's music is excellent. Some songs like Mana Radio, Teri Meri Dosti, Zindagi Ek Radi are sweet, but the film does not give much footage to these songs, which has not done justice to this hit music.


Most of the actors in acting have been disappointed. Sonal Sehgal tried his best but could not make it happen. Paresh Rawal has overcome stupid jokes. Zakir Hussain, a good actor, has overperformed in the film. Shahnaz Treasurywala's performance can be said over average.


Every frame of the film has been made beautiful and the art director has worked hard for it. Many experiments have been done in editing and there are many cuts in every scene.


However, no film can leave its mark only based on cinematography or art directions. Poor screenplay and average direction with underperformances of almost all actors made the film pathetic to watch.




IMDB users have given very poor ratings to the film i.e. 2.9 out of 10. However, Bollywood Product rates the film 4 out of 10.
