Emraan Hashmi is frolicking the honcho of an education mafia in Why Cheat India. The film also features Shreya Dhanwantari.
Why Cheat India is a masterpiece story that shows the cheating practices happening in Indian schools and colleges. ‘Why Cheat India’ exposes the redundant education system in our country. This is a film about how outmoded our education system is and the misconducts that reside in it. A lot of people will relate to it — students, parents, faculty and even the cheating mafia.
Soumik Sen’s Why Cheat India is based on such a man, one who wins the unnerving entrance examination gateways by sending well-prepared students to answer papers for rich contenders. The actor chosen for this cocky, audacious operation is ideal: the eternally unethical Emraan Hashmi.
Hashmi appears to be surging a yawn. Apparently based on a real conman, the film travels the country to show us students hardworking and depraved, but never finds momentum. The writing is flat. The gasp is ingenious enough to fill a great film, but Sen revels in apparent filmy cliché. There is no other way to explain the film’s mastermind Rakesh Singh (urf Rocky) announcing his entry with a fight scene.
The film tries to appear funny without being smart. There is a running gag about the actress playing Hashmi’s relentlessly talkative wife, but the joke is not in what she actually says, just the fact that she talks a lot. The actors are fine, especially some wonderfully unfamiliar old men, but the film doesn’t use them right.
