Days of Tafree is an upcoming comedy Bollywood film written and directed by Krishnadev Yagnik. Produced by Anand Pandit and Rashmi Sharma, it revolves around the lives of seven friends. It is an official remake of the 2015 Gujarati film, Chhello Divas.
Days of Tafree is scheduled to release on September 23, 2016.
This Hindi remake of Gujarati film, Chhello Divas (last day) revolves around the idiosyncrasies and friendship of four college friends and the girls they supposedly fancy. Tafree is them passing time doing inconsequential stuff in their student years
Nikhil (Yash Soni) likes Pooja (Nimisha Mehta). The two are the only sane characters/actors in the film. Vicky (Ansh Bagri) is the annoying good-looking guy, who suffers from verbal diarrhoea and Suresh (Sanjay Goswami) is the quintessential loser, who never gets the girl. The skirt chasing youngsters are also friends with the forever angry Dulha (Sarbjit Bindra). The everyday conversation between these notorious backbenchers forms the script.
When one hears that the remake is not a patch on the original comedy, you know something has gone awfully wrong in translation. The Hindi version is more of ‘Jhelo for days’ kind of film as the humour doesn’t come across. The fact that the director is the same makes you wonder even more.
A coffee scene (where a girl rants about her boyfriend ordering coffee without asking her) is loud but somewhat amusing. With no substantial story to its merit, you expect situations and random banter to spark humour. Sadly, with all the ‘jokes’ falling flat, sitting through this inane and absurd campus caper is supremely tedious. Watching it is reminiscent of attending a disastrous reunion bash where you find everyone annoying but attend it anyway, hoping to find a connect.
At the end of it, just like the professors, you too want to scream at these boys, saying, “I cannot tolerate this.”
