Sperm Donation is a subject that we talk about only in our bedrooms, but infertility is a huge problem in the modern society. Possibly keeping this major issue in mind, director Shoojit Sircar made a bold attempt with his latest release Vicky Donor. Sircar's brave attempt with a forward-thinking, avant-garde movie, finally turned out to be quite impressive and a true entertainment.
Vicky Donor narrates the love story between a Punjabi boy and a Bengali girl, set against the backdrop of sperm donation. Vicky is a good-for-nothing, jobless fellow until he donates his sperms for good, under the influence of Dr Chaddha, who runs an infertility clinic in Delhi. Vicky falls in love with a Bengali banker and soon gets married to her. But, story takes a twist when the couple's hunky dory world comes crashing down because of Vicky's past as a sperm donor.
Ayushmann Khurrana proved a fine actor by delivering a super confident performance in the movie. Yami Gautam makes an impressive debut. Vicky's widowed mother Dolly Ahluwalia and his grandmom Kamlesh Gill, definitely need special mention as they delivered stupendous performance throughout. Even Annu Kapoor too stands tall for his exceptional acting skills.
Talking about the music of Vicky Donor, a mandatory 'bhangra' number 'Rum Whiskey' will surely get you into the foot tapping zone. The other soundtracks 'Mar Jayian' and 'Pani Da Rang', too scores hit.
Vicky Donor marks John Abraham's foray into production. On the whole, the movie is a light-hearted tale and a sure-shot crowd puller with its controversial subject of sperm donation, peppy music, fresh star cast and huge entertainment.
