Aye Zindagi relies on a real story. Vinayak ‘Vinay’ Chawla (Satyajeet Dubey), a younger laptop engineer hailing from the center class will get to know that he has liver cirrhosis. He travels from Lucknow to Hyderabad to satisfy Revathi Ranjan (Revathy), an organ donation counsellor who persuades households of mind useless sufferers to donate their organs. Speaking to her kindles Vijay’s hopes, however getting a liver that meets his explicit parameters is tough. Vinay, annoyed, begins to lose hope however life, as they are saying, finds a method. How issues end up proper for him varieties the crux of the movie.
The movie carries a strong, affirmative message that actually is the necessity of the hour. Organ donation is one thing Indians majorly shrink back from. So many lives could be saved if the bulk turn out to be organ donors. However sadly this message is conveyed in a haphazard method. Whereas the scenes displaying Vinay going by means of completely different phases of the illness are gripping, the publish interval scenes, the place we see Vinay affected by main survivor’s guilt as he was solely capable of get a liver as a result of somebody has died, sound very unrealistic. He desires to satisfy the organ donor’s household and provide his gratitude, in addition to his condolences. All that’s positive. However he’s been depicted as a petulant little one throwing tantrums over not getting his favorite model of ice cream in such scenes. They wanted to be written and shot with a sure gravitas, which is lacking. Because of this, you don’t really feel their influence as a lot as you must.
Then, his romance with the night time nurse, Manjula (Mrinamayee Godbole), too seems to be infantile. After his discharge, they speak totally on the cellphone and one positive day, he proposes out of the blue and he or she accepts. Manjula at the least reveals skilled restraint whereas coping with a affected person whereas he was underneath her care. Vinay, however, once more behaves like a tennager crushing madly on the primary fairly lady he sees. He’s a certified engineer working in a reputed agency however his emotional immaturity is jarring. His brother, performed by Sawan Tank, is a research in distinction. He’s proven to be a health care provider all set for larger research however takes a break to deal with his youthful sibling. The pinnacle honcho of the hospital (Hemant Kher) too is proven to have a peaceful head on his shoulders. Why was the central character so weakly constructed boggles the thoughts.
The movie doesn’t get derailed due to the sincerity of the actors. Marathi actress Mrinmayee Godbole has been given a half-baked character sketch however doesn’t let that hinder her. She’s finished full justice to her underwritten function. Hemant Kher has channelled his inside Biswajit in his efficiency as a compassionate physician and Sawan Tak is the very soul of a caring elder brother. Satyajeet Dube is sweet within the scenes the place he’s proven slowly dropping each his well being and psychological peace. His depiction of a depressed affected person is spot on. Your coronary heart goes out seeing his full dedication to the uneven materials he was saddled with within the latter a part of the movie. Revathi is a powerhouse performer who has all the time made every function her personal and does it right here as effectively. She’s the very soul of a grief counsellor and makes you sit up and take discover of her impactful efficiency.
If slightly extra care was taken by the author and director Anirban, Aye Zindagi would have turned out to be a far superior movie then it at present is. It does carry a strong message, which must be communicated to the lots. The movie’s coronary heart is in the proper place and let’s hope the viewers forgive the gaffes and take to its teachings.
