For us who have moved to different cities and left our families behind, nothing can be more gratifying than ‘maa ke hath ka khana’. And Abhishek Sinha’s directorial venture with ‘Tumse Na Ho Paye’ will make you miss your mothers even more. And if you’re lucky enough to have home-cooked meals every day, this movie will make you appreciate your moms a little more. But that’s not the gist of Tumse Na Ho Payega released on September 29 on Disney’s Hotstar channel. The day to day realities, the problems middle class people face when they start a new business or simply follow their dreams, the complications of competing with this ‘Sharma ji ka beta’ in the society, understanding the world of social media etc, “Tumse Na Oh”. Payega’ shows extreme reality. It’s a perfect movie for GenZ and those who dare to start a business.
Tumse Na Ho Payega” is inspired by Varun Agarwal’s book “How I Cured Anu Aunty and Started a Million Dollar Company”. Gaurav, played by Ishwak Singh, is a 28-year-old man who is stuck in a company. One day he is fired. from his job, causing his opponents to resent him.After a brief setback, he becomes an idea for a new startup he is working on with a friend. Gaurav delivers home cooked lunches made by mothers to office professionals. Happy mothers, satisfied customers – this new food business is an instant success. However, in an era of intense competition, Gaurav’s business gets success. He takes solace in sharing his problems with Devika, played by Mahima Makwana. What happens next forms the rest of the story. “Tum decides karoge if you failed or passed” – this line from Tumse Na Ho Payega is a great life lesson. If you’re one of those people who just sticks around for a paycheck, this is the movie for you. While living a decent life is a dream, how many of us think about taking control of our lives, quitting our boss and starting a new business? At the same time, many of us are also under pressure from society. Haven’t we all felt suffocated at some point in our lives? Gaurav was also one of those people. However, she doesn’t give in to people who keep putting her down. He takes everyone on and becomes a successful entrepreneur, naturally after tasting failure. From a dull man, Gaurav becomes a daring risk taker.
“Tumse Na Ho Payega” carries a wonderful motivational message especially for the millennials who are constantly searching for happiness. Anu Aunty, played by Meghna Malik, perfectly characterises those in our society who have nothing to do but bother about other things. His better son played by Karan Jotwani continues to achieve success and Gaurav’s mother played by Amala Akkine compares her son to him. Think about him Sharma ji ka beta jiske means tumse zyada aye. More uniform, huh? A greedy investor (Parmeet Sethi) is the devil of the film. And the mothers who cook for Gaurav and help him in his business are pure angels. Seeing them on screen immediately makes you want to hug them, maybe even remind them of their mothers.
Ishwak Singh is the star of the film. There is no other actor who could have played Gaurav better than him. Mahima Makwana’s character has a very trendy job as a famous social media manager. The actor did a great job in his performance. Gaurav’s friends Mal, played by Gaurav Pandey, and Vaghela, played by Gurpreet Saini, add depth to their roles.
The film is directed by debutant Abhishek Sinha and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari. The film has an attractive script. The script is well written. The comedic timing could be better though. The shots were not memorable enough and did not have an impact. Where the film went wrong was also its predictability. At times it felt a bit rushed. The movie also starts very slowly.
Tumse Na Ho Payega will stay in your hearts for a very long, long time, despite its flaws. Even though it’s a one-off, it’s a survival film, because hey, life is messed up, and that’s what we see on screen. The reality of everyday life is perfectly described in the film.
