Chhatriwali movie review: The story of a condom quality tester, makes an important social message

Rakul Preet Singh and Sumeet Vyas starrer ‘Chhatriwali’ film has started streaming on Zee5 on Friday (January 20). Rakul Preet Singh as the protagonist and Sumeet Vyas is in a pivotal role, the film is a decent watch with predictable parts.

Singh plays Saniya Dhingra, a young, assertive woman who works as the quality control head at a condom factory. She resides in Karnal with her mother (Dolly Ahluwalia) and younger sister Jaya (Kajol Chugh).

Saniya takes chemistry tuition while seeking a job. On the other hand, Ratan Lamba (Satish Kaushik), who resides from the same town and he owns Cando Condoms. He needs a condom quality tester urgently but he’s not able to find one, due to which his business is suffering. However, Lamba comes across Saniya and he was impressed by her knowledge of chemicals. During that, he offers Saniya the job. Following the job proposal, Saniya became enraged but with no other option, she takes up the job with the condition that no one should know that she works at Cando. Ratan agrees.

Meanwhile, Saniya also comes into Rishi Kalra (Sumeet Vyas), who owns a store selling religious goods, during this time, two fall in love. But Saniya hides the fact that she works at the condom plant from her mother and from Ratan. She makes up the fact that she works for an umbrella firm. She even lies to Rishi’s family, including Rajan Kalra (Rajesh Tailang) and Nisha, her conservative and severe brother (Prachee Shah Paandya). As soon as they both get married, Saniya must take precautions to prevent her in-laws from learning what she works for a livelihood. When she understands that the condom is actually a lifesaver and not something to be ashamed about, she also starts to see her job in a new way.

In the second half, it diverges significantly from the Nushratt Bharuccha-starring film and organically combines amusement and a social message. The screenplay by Sanchit Gupta and Priyadarshee Srivastava is easy-going. The amusing and moving moments in the movie keep the audience interested. The interaction between Sanchit Gupta and Priyadarshee Srivastava is clever and cutting.

Sanya is handed out a ‘victory’, with her husband by her side, and Bhai ji is left shame-faced, but after almost the entire film is spent in undermining her.

Though the film is a one-time watch, but a must watch for all, especially teenagers. Chhatriwali is not a preachy film and delivers the message in a humorous manner.
