    Verdict - An unusual and delightful comedy with great performances buy the cast. Must watch

    Vicky DonorWatch trailerRelease date : April 20, 2012

    Vicky Donor is a charming film. It has the unusual theme of sperm donation and infertility as its base on which the Director Shoojit Sorcar builds a love story between a Bengali girl and a Punjabi boy. These are two different angles that could have been made into two different movies but he manages to mesh them into one light -hearted bittersweet whole. He also effortlessly captures the life of two different families in two different cultures without going over the top.

    Dr. Baldev Chadda who runs an infertility clinic hunts down Vicky, a true blue Punjabi boy. Pronouncing Vicky to be of true Aryan stock he rates his sperm top quality and convinces him to donate it to his clinic. He spawns a whole bunch of kids and becomes quite rich also in the process. In the meantime, he falls in love with the prim and propah Ashima a cultured Bengali girl. The two families of course oppose the match but finally come together. The real problem lies in the fact that Vicky had not told Ashima that he was a sperm donor. The rest of the movie works towards sorting out this issue.

    The movie is snappy in its pace barring a few sluggish moments here and there. The music also is light and peppy keeping with the general mood

    Ayushmann Khurana does not show any first film nerves and is a complete natural. Maybe that comes from the fact that he is at home in the Punjabi milieu being from Chandigarh. He is charming and likeable and a part of the new trend of non chocolate heroes who can still win your heart. Yamini Gautam as Ashima is dignified and vulnerable and makes you reach out to her in her distress. Anu Kapoor as Dr. Baldev Chadda cannot resist a bit of overacting but is quite perfect otherwise. His two sidekicks, Chaman and the nurse are worth looking out for.The real winners in the cast are the two ladies who play Vickys mother and grand mother. Their chemistry is so natural that you smile every time you see them on screen.

    Vicky Donor is definitely worth a watch. Behind the comedy and the tenderness is also a tiny message on infertility and sperm donation and adoption that reaches your heart with a smile.
