Zwigato Review: Both Kapil Sharma and Shahana Goswami has nailed it in throughout the run of the film. Though overall the story could have been clearer and consist of an engaging conflict.
Nandita Das continues to impress with her new film Zwigato which talks about working class and the difficulties it faced during and after Covid-19 pandemic. It casts life of a deliver guy, Manas (Kapil Sharma) who lost his job as a factory manager in pandemic. He signs up as a rider for an app-based food delivery service Zwigato.
The slow-paced drama moves around daily struggles in his new job profile. It also unveils many other stories of working-class community like cleaners, maids, masseuses & labours. The subject of the movie seems to move from cast wise discrimination in society to the class wise.
Manas zigzags through Bhubaneswar on his motorbike, setting targets for himself – make at least 10 deliveries, take selfies with customers for additional points, chase incentives. He forgets to rate his customers or request them for a good rating. Manas’s wife Pratima (Shahana Goswami) tries to be the helping hand to balance the economy in the family. But that makes Manas unhappy as he takes it hits his manly ego.
Both Kapil Sharma and Shahana Goswami has nailed it in throughout the run of the film. Though overall the story could have been clearer and consist of an engaging conflict. Makers uses symbolization method to show many threads of the story which is little too complex to strike.
