In current times when so much
madness has gripped the society. Parents are killing kids, children are leaving
parents and happily moving away without looking back. This movie- All is well,
is a much apt movie for current times. It has dealt with the sensitive issue of
dysfunctional families, estranged father-son relationship. Director Umesh
Shukla has done a good job with the plot. The movie centres around Rishi Kapoor
(father) and Abhishek Bachchan (Son).
The stories start in Thailand,
where Abhishek is shown a struggling musician. He receives a call from India
regarding a property issue. To sort out the issues he decide to go back to
India after ten years. After reaching India over period of time, he realises,
the mess his parents are into. In the process of solving the mess, he faces few
uncomfortable truths about his family. He steps back and introspect about his
role and realise he has failed his parents badly. But better late than never,
and our new age Shravan Kumar decide to put things right. Asin plays the love
interest of Abhishek Bachan in the movie. Another loveable character in this
film is local money lender Cheema (role played by Zeeshan). He is a don but his
comic timings entertain you.

Rishi Kapoor character as
Mr.Bhalla is very endearing. He plays the role of typical loud Punjabi, one
cannot stop laughing at his stubborn attitude. At times one can relate to him
and understand the failures and frustration faced by him. Asin’s role is bit
cosmetic, but I will not be harsh as the script had restricted scope for her.
Supriya Pathak role was bit waste, considering the powerful actress she is. She
is playing the role of Alzheimer patient.

I liked Abhishek acting, though I
wished that more experiment was done with his costume designing. He is a wonderful
actor but somehow luck is not on his side. His acting has definitely evolved
and the tension scenes between Rishi-Abhishek were the high points of the
film. The only troubling point was the mami thing, which could be removed or
This is the second film of Umesh
Shukla after Oh My God and I would give him thumbs up.
Why should you watch this movie:
- Social Message
- Powerful and fun filled acting of
- Definitely for angry young man
- Enjoyable yet sensitive plot
Oh yes, before I forget, I also liked
the songs of the movie, they are worth humming.
