Phillauri is not just a very different name, but an unusual yet adventurous script too. The title of the film has been inspired from a small town in Punjab. If you liked the concept of ‘Paheli’, this one will feel like something similar as far as the concept of a friendly and loving ghost goes. Phillauri is Anushka Sharma’s second venture as a producer and this one is an unforgettable experiment.
The film begins with the stereotypical big fat Punjabi wedding of Kanan (Suraj Sharma) with Anu
(Meherene Kaur Pirzada). The celebrations, customs and rituals consume a good part of the movie. Kanan has to be married to a tree since he is a maanglik and all the ‘maanglik doshas’ of him will supposedly end if he is first married to a tree and then to his beloved. In this process, how Kanan ends up marrying the ghost residing in the tree and what happens next is the main plot of Phillauri.
Anushka has played a rather lovable ghost who is far from haunting or scary. Diljeet as her love interest is very convincing as the Punjabi boy. In a way, all the four actors have played their characters beautifully. This film will keep your eyes rolling as to what’s coming up in the next scene. Phillauri surprises you in many ways,and dissapoints you only when it comes to the editing.
