Kajol is the heart & Soul of Salaam Venky
Salaam Venky is a movie about the mother & son relationship, their bond, how true unconditional love means letting go & not holding back for another while because of own sake. The film deals with the concept of Euthanasia & organ donation therefore bringing more awareness about them. The film also sheds a great deal of light on disability, the plight of a single woman who faces a lot of hardships while raising her children alone, how the family suffers when one of its member is terminally ill.
Kajol plays a single mother who leaves her husband’s abode when he refuses to treat their son as he’s a dead investment in his own words. She faces a lot of hardships in raising a terminally ill son whose life is short but in turn of events, she accepts his incoming death and promises to make her son’s life larger by fighting for his right to die with dignity and organ donation.
Kajol who plays Sujatha, is beyond great in this movie. Such a fine actress! Her eyes displays all the complex emotions she’s going through within extraordinarily. No other actress in Bollywood can cry the way she does, her strength is emotions. She also uplifts the movie to a greater degree with a superb performance in each and every frame.
Vishal Jethwa acts good in the movie but his acting feels more methodical than natural.
Aahana Kumra as the Journalist is the biggest plus point for the movie, after Kajol. Her entry in the movie brings the right amount of excitement in the movie. She’s superb in all her scenes.
Rahul Bose, Rajeev Khandelwal, Priyamani, Prakash Raj, Anant Mahadevan, etc. All acted good but again methodical, didn’t feel natural and connected with me.
The girl who played Nandu is another brilliant part of the film. Loved her natural acting, same goes for the girl who played Venkatesh’s sister.
The weakest link of this movie is the director Revathy. I expected a lot out of her but she falls short of delivering it. It clearly shows that she returned to direction after 18 years. The film could’ve avoided all these songs and invested more time in the storyline. The songs were a distraction to the story. Also, the film felt depressing most of the times due to the lighting, background and overall sets designed for this movie. Revathy’s direction is outdated and it seems she has no idea of making a commercial film. This film better suits a direct OTT platform release.
Overall, Salaam Venky worked for me only and only due to Kajol’s AMAZING performance, there’s a reason why she’s regarded as the best actress of this country.
Kajol’s performance was brilliant!!
I had the pleasure of watching Salaam Venky today. Such a powerful, raw & heartbreaking performance by Kajol! She delivered this role & every emotionally charged scene within the film with such passion – I walked out feeling simultaneously satisfied & devastated.
Vishal took the role of Venky and ran all the way to my heart with his performance. I smiled everytime he smiled and cried when his heart broke due to so many shattering disappointments.
This duo and the relationship they portrayed between Venky and Sujata was truly heart-warming. Every scene was powerful and the message that was conveyed is truly an important one to take home.
