Movie Verdict

Even today, openly discussing sex is a big deal in India. There are many problems that our ladies face as a result of not having safe sex, and no one even talks about it. The fact is that these sex-related problems have been faced by women for many years. One and only problem is the lack of knowledge about sex. Many films have come to educate about sex, and now another film, Chhatriwali, deals with problems caused by not using a condom, and how society looks at these taboos even now is quite well shown in the film.

The film takes time to get into the actual story, but once Sanya decided to use her knowledge to educate others about sex and got a job as a condom tester, from then on the film makes us engaged with the right amount of comedy in the backdrop of sex education, and the film has a strong conflict that has been presented quite well in the intermission, which makes us curious to watch the latter half. Despite the snail-paced narration and routine scenes in the beginning, the film has some good points about sex education, the use of condoms, and how family, society, and husbands treat women. And the best thing about Chhatriwali is that the director doesn’t treat the film like a lecture about sex; it deals with comedy, which makes the film interesting.

Rakul Preet Singh as Sanya did well, but she failed in emotional scenes, Sumeet Vyas did his parent’s part well, and Satish Kaushik, Rakesh Bedi, Dolly Ahluwalia, and others did their parts well.

Technically, Chhatriwali looks okay but it could have been much better, Siddharth Vasani’s cinematography is partly good; Mangesh Dhakde’s songs are not up to the mark; his background score is good; and the rest of the technical team did well as per the film’s requirements.

Kudos to Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar for addressing the taboos about sex, though their narrative falls flat in the beginning, although they showed brilliant scenes about how women are suffering when a husband doesn’t use protection and how important it is that kids be educated about sex. All these topics are discussed quite well through visuals.

Overall, Chhatriwali is another good attempt at talking about sex education, and the film is a must-watch for every section of the audience.

Plus Points:

  • Story
  • Comedy

Minus Points:

  • Predictable Screenplay
  • Slow Narration in the beginning

Rating: 3/5
