The much anticipated and awaited film Roy finally hit the screen tomorrow and since I was one among those fortunate ones to have secured tickets on very first day in a multiplex theater in a city where Hindi movie tickets are sold like hot Jalebis, I got flooded with lots of chat messages, phone calls and in person conversations asking me a common question “How is Roy Movie?”
Rather than replying to each and every thread individually and considering the social welfare, I decided to go public and share my personal experiences and feelings about the movie and justifying reasons to watch it. So, here are those 5 reasons, I recommend, every Indian must consider to watch this movie:-
Number 1: Film promoters and sources were found quoting that Roy is essentially an #Arjun Rampal and #Jacqueline Fernandez film and that the National Lover # Ranbir Kapoor has just a short role in the film. Whereas in actual, you will very much find him, and mostly hanging on the ship and scanning for whales or sharks, or may be thinking “Ibiza was much better”?
Bonus: You are RK fan and you enter the theater with a sad feeling that he won’t be much there in the movie. You’ll soon discover the truth that he’s all around.
Number 2: If you are The Scotch Malt Whisky lover, welcome to the club where characters given a role in the movie actually unite to enjoy an unmatched experience of exceptional single cask, single malt whisky. And mind it, it is better with “3 cubes of ice”
Bonus: You’d almost prepare yourself to quit smoking after reading a postscript running in the entire movie duration saying “Smoking kills”. You’ll soon discover the truth that It is actually “Roy that Kills”.
Number 3: We spend thousands of rupees every year on health supplements, going for fitness routines and doctor consultation. However #Roy is one way you can personally save money and boost your health. The unintentionally funny dialogues “hum insaan hamesha kisi aur ki zindagi chura ke jeena chhahte hai” ; “main apne actors ko characters k bahar nahi milta” “mujhe nahi pata tha ye kahani aise khatam hogi” will most probably do you the most good.
Bonus: Despite of Director’s attempt of torture with such a creative crisis, you’ll soon discover that you had a good laugh and made health through this misery.
Number 4: The double role mystery is an icing on the cake. It’s not that earlier we haven't been been delighted with the idea or story of a double role appearance. But #Roy is such a suspense that will simultaneously keep you occupied with a parallel mystery that whether or not Jacqueline is playing a double role? Though from the story being unfold, director gives tough assignment to the audience to distinguish one character from the other, but thanks to the costume designers and make-up artists who did a good job of sketching two different characters - one that looks like Deepika Padukone (with the help of glasses and hot pants) and other that looks ate Marilyn Monroe (with the help of a retro bob and red lipstick)
Bonus: While watching the movie, you feel bad about your talent you could not resolve the mystery & kkept guessing who’s who? But you'll discover the truth that no one else (including the director) qualified the #ROYology test too. Moreover, the movie helps you explore alternate professions such as sea-gazing or balcony-admiring, that look much appealing from the movie.
Number 5: For the Science Geeks and those crazy about physics and chemistry of the universe, this movie is a perfect gift to bring your brain cells to function and indulge in scientific thinking like “How movies like Roy are made?” or rather “Why they are made?”
Bonus: You spent your lifetime living in an illusion that you are an arts lover. You’ll soon discover the truth that you are actually a science lover and will start dedicating spare time to study mysteries of #ROYverse
