Kai Po Che! is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life directed by Abhishek Kapoor, with music by Amit Trivedi and lyrics by Swanand Kirkire. Sushant Singh Rajput, Raj Kumar Yadav and Amit Sadh star as the three main protagonists while Amrita Puri plays the female lead respectively.
Kai po che is a triumphant Gujarati yell when one cuts off another kite flying in the air, and the terms literally means cutting it off. And this is a triumphant film worth every minute of it. The story, the screenplay, the acting, and the music lifts the movie out of the ordinary.
Best friends Ishaan, Omi and Govind – young, ambitious and restless – are trying to make a mark in the India of the early 2000s. These are exciting times – a perfect place for the 3 Ahmedabad boys to start a business that could be their ticket to fame and riches.
Based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel “The 3 Mistakes of My Life”, Kai Po Che is an unforgettable ode to friendship and the magical moments one shares with one’s closest pals – celebrating festivals, drunken dancing, watching cricket matches together.
This may not be akin to 3 Idiots or Dil Chahta Hai, but stands on its own feet, and is definitely a movie worth its every minute.
