Movie Review:

Character or junior artistes in Hindi cinema have always been malleable. From that doctor who emerges from the OT to offer an integrated prescription of dava and dua to those mole-bearing bandits who succumb to the very first bullet — they slip into diverse avatars without realising a distinctive identity. As the lead in this film, a veteran character actor himself, puts it, “we’re like aalu, can be tossed into any dish”. Hardik Mehta’s Kaamyaab is a well-deserved tribute to those countless performers relegated to the fringes of every movie poster. They may have slipped through the cracks of time, but their humble contributions are immeasurable.

Kaamyaab | Movie Review | by Sonup – Hit or Flop?

This one opens to a TV interview with veteran character actor Sudheer (Sanjay Mishra) being filmed at his modest home. When asked to repeat his iconic dialogue, “Bas enjoying life, aur option hi kya hain?”, he mutters it listlessly, furnishing a poignant irony given his present situation. After his last film stirred a salacious scandal, the visibly washed up actor hung up his boots. But when he’s informed by this interviewer that he has featured in 499 movies (as per his IMDB page), he’s surprised and a bit embarrassed when he examines the list himself. To mark his 500th on a glorious note, Sudheer decides that he must attempt one last film. He pats down his wig, brushes his shoes against his calves, throws on his shades and is geared up for his grand comeback. But out of commission for some time, Sudheer’s rusty. Also, since one generation’s ‘compelling’ can be excessively ‘hammy’ for another, his chest-beating approach, amplified with a swig of liquid courage to curb performance anxiety, doesn’t cut it anymore. With the help of casting director Dinesh Gulati (Deepak Dobriyal), he bags a minor role in a major motion picture, where he is to play Rana ka baap, Maharana. But will Sudheer’s dated ways allow him to blend in and pull through? Or will he flounder away this career-defining opportunity in his idiosyncratic manner?

To call this Mishra’s chef d’oeuvre would be unfair and probably, not entirely true. But the actor encapsulates the vulnerability and angst of his character’s peculiar position in every frame. The film allows him to delve into his multiple lives: a doting father and grandpa, a whiskey-chugging doston ka dost, and even an empathetic sounding board-of-sorts to a struggling cub actor. But he’s also sharp in conveying Sudheer’s crushing lows. Dobriyal, while in a brief role, is on point and delivers. Cameos by iconic character actors such as Avtar Gill, Manmauji, Lilliput, Guddi Maruti, Birbal and the late Viju Khote who play themselves in the film lends this one a realistic edge.

The creative recession in the ’80s was so severe that almost every film had a standard premise, and character actors were unavoidable fixtures. Lawyers, in the their closing statement, always requested for “kadi se kadi sazza” for the accused, while policemen would perennially tilt out of their jeeps and yell into megaphones, saying “humne tumhe chaaron oorr se gher liya hain” to assure the villain that he’s doomed. Lower in the order of celebrity, those who essayed these bite-sized roles often found themselves battling a hollow existential crisis. And thus justifying their struggle of trying to elevate themselves from being a vaguely recognizable face to one who’s celebrated for this craft. Some, as this film shows, decide to rest on their mild fame by accepting local commercials to stay in circulation if not to make ends meet, while others wallow in nostalgia over a neat peg or three. Kaamyaab is a heart-breaking watch and fitting tribute to these invisible stars of cinema.
