Saat Uchakkey is a fun film with a simple story providing pretty much wholesome entertainment. Film has some great performances and rib tickling dialogues that makes Saat Uchakkey a time pass watch. If film has some strong points in it then it has some weak points as well. The film moves at such a speed that constantly it seems like Sanjeev Sharma was taking too much of precautions before writing every scene. Film is entertaining but the narrative struggles to succeed in engaging the audience. Through the film you are with the character but the entire look and feel of the film seems like something is missing and every scene could have been better and the screenplay could have been tighter.
Manoj Bajpayee, Kay Kay Menon, Vijay Raaz and Aditi Sharma were brilliant performers in Saat Uchakkey. Out of all of them Kay Kay Menon shined just because he had grey shades to his character and he nailed it. Anu Kapoor and Anupam Kher had little screen space but they were outstanding in their parts. Sanjeev Sharma has written a pretty decent story and executed it quite well, the execution could have been better though. His dialogues in the film are the highlight. They solely add humor to the film. Film being certified Adults some of the bad words are replaced which is a bit sad. Music hardly has any importance in the film. Two inconsequential songs in the second half, more of situation demanding rather to add some value to the film. As per the locations the entire look and feel of the film is very rustic right from costumes to accent to mannerisms of the characters. Editing is pitch perfect. Film is a bit slow but then no unwanted tracks or scenes at all.
Saat Uchakkey is one of those rare film where its very difficult to talk about the film. It is surely worth a watch for the performances and the humor in the film. Makes it for a good weekend watch.
