Gour Hari Dastaan is a simple and true story of man who fought for his right. Gour Hari Das who did not leave hope till he could get his certificate which proved him as a freedom fighter is inspiring and motivating.
Anant Mahadevan selects best stories and presents beautifully. First it was Sindhutai Sapkal and now Gour Hari Das. His execution style takes the audience back in time. Gour Hari Dastaan do takes you back in time especially the 70’s and 90’s. News organizations, government offices, current affairs of that time are beautifully displayed on big screen. In some scenes he beautifully brings out the thinking of NRI’s and Indians about our country.
Vinay Pathak as Gour Hari Das excells in his performance. Gour Hari Das’s honesty and dedication to achieve his goal is brilliantly portrayed by Vinay Pathak. Konkona Sen Sharma does not have much of screen time but she delivers an outstanding performance. Ranvir Shorey and Tanishta Chatterjee have very well supported the film.
Film is slow paced but the scenes are good enough to grab your attention. To top it up every actor has performed exceptionally well. Editing was pitch perfect and flashback is nicely incorporated. Remaining technical aspects are just perfect for such film, very subtle.
Gour Hari Dastaan is not for everyone but definitely for those who like good cinema. I loved it and will recommend it just so that all of us will know about this amazing person named Gour Hari Das.
