Shweta Tripathi-starrer Gone Kesh has opened in the theatres along with Salman Khan’s Notebook which has two popular fresh faces debuting - Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl. However, the trailer of Gone Kesh has received positive reviews. The film features Shweta Tripathi, Vipin Sharma, Deepika Amin, Jitendra Kumar and is directed by Qasin Khallow.
The movie is about a girl Enakshi Dasgupta from Siliguri, West Bengal who suffers from alopecia. However the movie hasn't really created much buzz, so there could be many who would be still skeptical whether to watch it or not. If you are still wondering whether to buy tickets for this one or not, we will make it easier for you, as the critics have given their verdict. Let's check out what they have to say...
A Firstpost review states that the movie is quite a must in Indian cinema's diaspora, however, "Gone Kesh falls short in exploring the protagonist’s internal journey towards self-acceptance. A talented Tripathi, with her petite frame, effortlessly slips into the mould of an adolescent and a young adult. But for the central role she shoulders in this film, she has not been given the canvas to emote."
According to IANS' review, "The pace of the narrative is slow and the exposition at times tedious. But nevertheless, it's the simplicity and naturalness of the performances that keeps you hooked. "
Another review in The Hindu states, "Gone Kesh’s freshness, warmth and good-heartedness, feels too slight and doesn’t have enough meat in it to be more than a short. Why not show more of Enakshi’s passion for dance, for instance. "
A review in The Scroll reads, "The light touch that peppers most of the scenes feels misplaced, given the gravity of Enakshi’s condition and the association between beauty and hair. The shattering of self-image and the tragedy of Enakshi’s plight, given her youth, are barely explored."
Times OF India's review states, "Qasim Khallow’s film is a heartwarming tale of conquering fear, crushing societal standards of beauty and exploring the parent-child bond. The film is most relatable for women, who are conditioned to believe that they ought to be perfect if they wish to ‘bag a good husband'."
