What are their plans to win the prestigious event? How does each of the LOSERS try to motivate Raghav? Does Raghav find Anirudh’s LOSERS story inspiring ? Does it give him confidence to live a new life?
The story swings between the reunion of friends at hospital and their college moments. This makes it really an interesting, fun filled watch. Director Nitesh Tiwari’s direction is brilliant, thanks to the solid script. He has managed to create an impact while handling those lively hostel moments. Apart from those funny senses, there are some thought-provoking issues dealt well .The way kids fail to handle pressure and take extreme steps, close friends despite all this social media support not keeping in touch. The minor flaw being an extra dose of melodrama which could have been diluted .Along with some fun, some of the sports in the championship should have been shown with more competitive spirit
Sushant singh Rajput excels as Anirudh handling those lively college moments really well. He has given matured performance as worried father, his youngster act is better though. Shraddha kappor is fantastic, both as a bubbly young lady and a serious mother. Varun sharma clearly steals the show with the perfect comic timing. Naveen Polishetty is first rate.Saharsh Kumar and Thushaar kumar play their part well.Pratiek Babbar and Tahir Raj Bhasin impress with their intense act
Need to refresh memories from the college days, this one is for you.
