Wholesome, Entertaining and Necessary
Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is a movie that takes a very niche place in Bollywood which has been carved out for a Massy with Message film aka the Ayushman Khurana Genre. It does that job very well.The humour entertainment quotient and drama are all reminiscent of a typical Bollywood drama. But the only thing which makes it unique is its premise. Progressive or not is debatable but this is a necessary film which perhaps noone can deny.The tone deaf jokes occasional cringy dialogues and its idea of giving medal for accepting a Trans woman as normal attitude might seem odd and unacceptable to few at this age and time.But it should be minded that this film is being targetted towards a very different audience. This film does the job of igniting the potential to have that conversation among average Joes while also ensuring a level of drawing room comfort. That is something. And for that the writing has to be commended.In terms of acting both Khurana and Vaani did a good job. Their performances were fun and acceptably charming.Overall this is a film which can be enjoyed even with its flaws.

Thought provoking but in a very entertaining way with lots of humor.
Finally saw this on Netflix.The movie has a very strong social message and at the same time it is engrossing in an entertaining way.It has romance comedy n sports.It is more difficult to change human behavior than to influence opinions or attitudes and this movie will definitely influence attitudes towards the transgendertranssexual fellas.Ayushman Khurana gave a believable performance of that a gym instructor myself being an instructor but his statement about pimples on chest due to protein shakes or proteins via meat n eggs is totally unscientific.People do get pimples due to testosterone shots aka steroids but not cos of proteins.

Ayushmann Genre Continues
Anwar Says Ayushmann Khurana films are a genre in themselves and this movie is the final say and the best in the league Abhishek Kapur is there to direct. An artist whose debut was as a donor can take up any script and prove himself. The film is a complete package in itself at one time entertains you and at the same time addresses a sensitive subject.Vani Kapur equally shines by far her best performance. The emotions of a transgender and the bond she carries with her father played by Kanwaljeet and she effortlessly surrenders herself into the character. Ayushmann sisters looked irritating but thats what director wanted from them .Editing is crisp and movie is wrapped up in one hour 57 minutes. Manoj Lobos camera cheerfully explore chiseled bodies of both the leads . Sachin Jigar is back with their foot tapping tunes . Normally a movie on a social taboo is preachy at the end but Abhishek kept it simple that makes it distinct. A must watch dont wait till it is released on OTT.movie2021 anwarsays transgenderawareness transgenderrights AyushmannKhurrana vanikapoor AbhishekKapoor ChandigarhKareAashiqui moviereview.

Hatts of to the director ABHISHEK KAPOOR who directs this film and making the people aware of this subject which is must important to know. I didnt like vaani kapoor much but after seeing this movie I just wanna say one thing FANTASTIC performance by her and after this film shell be on fire. Not everyone does and not everyone has the guts to this kind of roles but she did it and it was superb. Ayushman Khurana always rocks with his performance and powerful subjects. Story screenplay music all are perfectly matched to the concept of the film. If you wanna see something different with powerful social topic go for it....

Vaani Kapoor steals the show in this mature film about transgenders
Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is a movie about acceptance. It is more than just another Ayushmann movie where he gets involved in something beyond his comprehension. For that matter it is actually more of a Vaani Kapoor film and thats a good thing given the subject.Manvinder Manjal runs a gym in Chandigarh. He aspires to win the title of GOAT Gabru of all Time and he trains hard for it. His gym employs Vaani Kapoors Maanvi to conduct Zumba classes. They fall in love but Manvinder is in for a shock when Maanvi reveals that she is a transwoman.This is Ayushmann Khurranas 2nd LGBTQIA film after Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. While SMZS was more of a comedy Chandigarh is more mature in terms of driving home the message of acceptance but at the same time keeping it light breezy. Vaani Kapoor is the central character here rightfully so. She essays the role of a transwoman really well. Ayushmann dons the body builder avatar the accompanying mindset with easeChandigarh Kare Aashiqui is entertaining at the same time drives the message home with grace. Definitely a step towards more progressive mainstream cinema Abhishek Kapoor delivers yet again with Vaani Kapoor stealing the show.

A decent attempt by Bollywood standards! [+61%]
We all love Ayushmanns choice of scripts that strike a balance between catering to mainstream Bollywood sensibilities and conveying subtle progressive messages. CKA is yet another film that starts in typical rom com fashion Manu Ayushmann a gym owner and bodybuilder loves Maanvi Vaani a Zumba instructor. But theres a little secret that changes its entire course. Its that Maanvi is a trans woman. When the revelation is made Manu acts the way most taunting cis gender Indian men would do but he also uses very harsh language at Maanvi in the process. In real life for such a couple to reconcile it would take a lot longer than a single hospital episode. But this is commercial Bollywood mind you If it wants quicker closure itll give you exactly that.Also what if Maanvi was not a self reliant strong willed reasonably wealthy person Doesnt that lessen some of the most significant hurdles that trans persons face in the form of complex surgeries These convenient shortcuts are forsaken simply because the intent is appreciable. I also wish the climax was centered around giving closure to Maanvi instead of something thats comparatively less significant. We could also have used some more insight into gender reassignment surgery especially since the film had the golden opportunity to go there.One of the few things it wholly gets right is the occasional humor. I thought it would be offensive to a great extent but thankfully it isnt. Even better that some of it arises from unique situations. While we can easily question why Vaani was chosen to play a trans woman she gives it her all. For once it isnt Ayushmann doing all the heavy lifting in an Ayushmann movie. And it was a neat move on the writers part to show Manu doing all the homework on LGBTQ himself instead of some doctor spoon feeding him.

Not all Hindi movies are cliche!
This movie needs to be in global headlines certainly something I will be able to recommend with immense pride to portray how much capable Hindi cinema is of creating quality content..Ayushmaan continues to shine Vaani has so much potential this movie provides her the platform.. Storyline may be a bit ahead of time for a certain audience group in india..

A daring effort
I think what makes this movie different from normal stereotypes or even Ayushmanns other movies was that it was more for the actress but subjectively Ayushmann gave all the proper support as and when required. And I would say Vaani Kapoor did her level best coming out of those cliche roles and side actress stuff.But above all its the concept and its showcase that was the main feature of this film. If I leave aside the manly drama the sub urban jokes and the sex the remaining movie happened to be brilliant. Not that the other stuff wasnt good but no where close to this the agony and assault that MaanviManu faced in her day today life and how boldly shehe was able to handle those blows. And that was what both emotional and comprehensive. Again it was just a movie and in real life things are totally different. And they will remain immature maybe even 20 years down the line whenever any such matter arise.Overall a good movie.

...VAANI rocks this time.
Such a bold attempt for a bollywood movie. It can be called its ahead of its time. Audience might not digest the concept yet.May be educational on parts.I have seen a lot of bakwaas movie lately this is definitely not one of them.

If you be strictThere couldve castwd a real trans person rather than actress. But I totally understand the profitability aspect in Bollywood to attract audience and thatll of course generate more awareness. Hence no complains there.Since its a typical Bollywood movie its less realistic and more idealistic or fairy tale like with happy endings. But again what would you expect more walking into a mainstream Bolly movie. And again at this instance acknowledgement and the courage to make such movie is itself commendable. Hence no complain whatsoever againMaybe a decade later someone from the future may find even more shortcomings like we do for 90s and 00s hits. But this is the best of us for the time time being.

Plays it too Safe and Boring
Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui was a pretty average movie It was also very safe. Not really a good movie on Transgender issues to be honest.It bypasses most of the harder parts of being a transgender through the surgery.That surgery that the girl had is still rare and costs crores and by the look of it the girls family wasnt that rich. Its not also available everywhere especially in India. You have to travel abroad and that cost has to be taken into consideration.Also most Trans women dont get the surgery because its rare expensive and it has many many risks. So they bypassed the meat of the messaging by basically making her a full on girl rather than an actual currently living realistic trans woman.You can praise it all you want for the social messaging it brings but I am not here to be a puppet for a social protest. I am judging the movie for what it is and it is BORING.

Good concept but bad execution and casting
The execution itself is flawed. They wanted to tell that Trans peoples are not accepted in society but still hide her identity as Trans girl in movie. Vaani is total misfit and she cannot act at all. No emotions just 1 expression entire movie. Its like similar movies of ayushmaan. The mother who didnt accept her Trans girl son for so many years just accepts her after 1 speech. So many product placements in the movie. Ayushmaan also looks dull and confused. He is angry at Maanvi for being Trans girl but still goes behind her. Comical elements are added in bits. Just 1 time watch if there are no other option.

Good story, poorly execution
This is serious subject and needs to be told in serious manner. Subject of the movie is good but execution was very poor. Vaani acted very well where aayushmaan plays himself. A One time watch.

Plays it too safe
When you are making a movie on such a sensitive issue you have to go all in. Unfortunately CKA fails to do that it only revolves around the topic but does not go to the core of it.Another issue with this movie was the lead actress. Vaani plays a trans woman and she fails miserably. The character needed a very strong acting base and Vaani Kapoor falters in those few powerful scenes.

This is nothing new except for a little bit change in plot a very predictable movie and has literally everything that a Bollywood romance movie must have. The plot had potential but it wasted it.

Movie about acceptance . Before watching this movie I didnt even watch trailer I booked ticket for the sake of Ayushmaan atlast Yes ... its typical Ayushmaan movie unique . First we should appreciate the whole team for choosing this social topic not spoiling . Director very well handled this topic by balancing entertainment and also giving us good message . Vaani Kapoor as Manvi a show stealing performance from her . Ayushmaan again and again he is impressing us with his unique script selection and also with his performance . 2nd half was bit rushed . Overall a must watch movie . Dont miss it .

BIG BOLD & POWERFUL STEP....
Firstly lots of praises for vaani kapoor she really outperformed everybody in this movie she played trans girl with such conviction that you can go for emotional journey through her character and thanks to ayushmaan khurrana for complementing the cause and the movie as he always does. Its a well directed movie by abhishek kapoor they showed such serious topic with such ease and made it fun to watch must watch.

Good premise ruined my Bollywood cringe cliches
The first half of the movie is super interesting and the premise is very bold and handled quite well. However the second half makes a joke of everything by throwing in absolute cringe family drama and dumb Bollywood cliches. It seems as if different writers wrote the first and second parts of the movie. Vani Kapoor is unconvincing as the female lead while Ayushman pulls off the male lead quite well. Only wish Bollywood can be a bit more realistic and grow some balls when it comes to presenting realistic bold content the way it deserves to be presented.
