Kapil Sharma is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in Indian comedy circuit. From being a contestant on The Great Indian Laughter Challenge to becoming the owner of The Kapil Sharma Show, the ace comedian has only upped his game.

However, the star is yet to taste success in films. Kapil had first tried his hand at acting two years ago, but was unable to impress the audience. And now he is back with another big screen outing, Rajiv Dhingra's Firangi.

The film doesn't have an engaging plotline or a love-story to vouch for... a big disappointment for Kapil Sharma fans.

First half doesn't impress at all.. 

Dec 1, 2017 11:17 am (IST)

Okay, so the film is an average watch till now, minus the love-story...

Dec 1, 2017 10:58 am (IST)

At least something is believable... 

Dec 1, 2017 10:57 am (IST)

Well, it seems the film has no vibes... 

Dec 1, 2017 10:40 am (IST)

A senseless period-comedy? 

Dec 1, 2017 10:20 am (IST)

A lame start is it? 

Dec 1, 2017 10:19 am (IST)

It begins with a 'heavy narration' indeed...

Firangi is unlike Kapil's debut film as the subtle, conversational humour takes a front seat instead of punchlines.
