Chhalang really delivered us what it really promised and just when you thought that 2020 is getting worse, the actor-director duo gave us something to cheer about in 2020. Hansal Mehta and Rajkumar Rao came together for their fifth movie and delivered an extraordinary story-telling and an amazing performance which helped them to accomplish this near-impossible feat in 2020.

Mehta who has delivered an amazing performance in his series, Scam 1992 took a refreshing change and showed us his versatility irrespective of any genre through his filmmaking style. Chaalang showed us how a middle-class person struggles to keep up with his normal and professional life and how chaotic it gets sometimes when he tries to balance them. Rajkumar Rao delivered an amazing performance of a school teacher who is itself a procrastinator and remains disinterested in his duties and struggles with it daily. His co-star Saurabh Shukla (Sukla Ji) and he are dependent on each other and it seems that they are stuck in this eternity of time.
The movie is set in a small town where the character of Rajkumar Rao seems to be very desperate and after an hour the plot thickens and you will find the movie to start to resemble the Karate Kid. Overall, Mehta delivers an amazing story-telling just like he did in his other oscar worthy movies like Shahid and Aligarh.
We would give 3.4 stars out of 5 to this amazing movie experience.
