Sonali Cable Movie Review
Director: Charudutt Acharya
The evil corporate’s job is to gobble, grunch and munch. The feisty underdog’s is to stand up and be counted, and refuse to become easy meal. ‘Sonali Cable’ has a nice premise, especially relevant in this age of the permanently wired universe, soulless corporations, and the scams that come out of acquiring spectrum. But its execution is much less so.
Spirited Mumbai girl Sonali (Rhea Chakraborty) is the Girl With The Cable in her locality. Her love interest Raghu (Ali Fazal) is the son of an ambitious local corporator (Smita Jaykar), and her (Sonali’s) aim is to keep doing what she does because she connects hearts, not just wires. A spanner in the works arrives in the shape of a greedy old tycoon (Anupam Kher), who likes crunching ‘khakras’ and who wants to grab ‘akkhi Mumbai’ in the manner of old- style dons.

There are some vivid patches in this David-Goliath war, but overall consistency and credibility is a problem. The leading lady tries for perkiness but comes off as a weak link, her foul-mouthedness more forced than natural. Kher is over-the-top. Fazal is a good addition to the team, even if he is in the same mode as he was in ‘Bobby Jasoos’. And I like Swanand Kirkire in his acting gigs : he makes things believable even when he is patently on a set.
This could have been a modern day fable, but ‘Sonali Cable’ is not that film.
