Very tempting to say that all is not well with this movie but I will let it pass. During a recent interview Abhishek Bacchan mentioned that there was resemblance between "All is well" and " Piku" on the following counts
1. Both films have a Bacchan. 2. Both films are part road movies 3. Both films deal with relieving issues ( Piku on defecation/constipation and AIW on frequent urination of the respective fathers).
He could have also mentioned that there is a considerable difference in the treatment and presentation of both films. Piku kept you engaged but this movie is difficult to sit through.
As compared to the brilliantly made Piku, AIW is a comedy which struggles to entertain.The story is quite OK, the narrative is also adequate but the actors go about their scenes in a perfunctory manner. While the lead stars have not performed well enough to give a pace to the film, it is left to Zeeshan Ayub Khan who tries his best to enliven the proceedings but that does not work all the time.
Rishi Kapoor has a failing bakery business and quarrels with wife ( Supriya Pathak ) and son Abhishek ( who wants to become a rock singer and is not interested in the family bakery business.). After a domestic disagreement,Abhishek goes abroad for pursuing music and returns to India after many years. His father is now bankrupt, his mother is sick and the family is beset with problems.How AB solves all issues and converts to a good son forms the rest of the film with a happy ending.
Director Umesh Shukla has failed to do a good job, the story progress lazily and lacks the interest and excitement required for the Sunday audience. Certain developments in the story seem totally illogical and unconvincing specially in regard to Asin's character which remains under developed and she literally tags along with the family..The comedy appears forced. It was not a good idea to show AB as a rock star because he lacks the poise,energy and panache which this character demands. Moreover it does not fit in his accepted image. He could have been shown as an IT professional convincingly.
Both Abhishek and Asin are not impressive and their work looks lacklustre. Rishi Kapoor is adequate as the distraught father with some bits of overacting His frequent requests for taking a leak was not amusing at all...Supiya Pathak fails to impress in an almost non speaking role. Zeeshan Ali is the saving grace and gives a lively, spirited comic performance but he also runs out of steam after sometime.
The music is good and helps the film a bit. The photography is good.
