Gagan Kapoor (Govinda) is a flirtatious theater actor living an unsatisfied married life. He has a girlfriend Bindu (Digangna Suryavanshi) and loves her a lot. Rajiv Chabbra (Varun Sharma) – a failed salesman tries to save his job. Sells water purifier for Pavitra Paani company and gets a warning from his boss. “If you don’t sell one water purifier before this Friday, you’ll get fired,” says Rajiv’s boss to him.
Rajiv starts taking help from astrologers and meets Manchanda (Sanjay Mishra). He gets advised of creating a relationship with his customers and also a reference of Gagan Kapoor. Gagan’s wife plans to go out of town for a weekend and Bindu gets invited. Unknowingly Rajiv reaches on the same day, Friday, when Gagan plans to have a fun-day with Bindu. This starts the comedy of errors & create situations which evoke many laughs.
Govinda acts like there’s no tomorrow. He’s a dynamite and you can see it throughout the film. Energetic, trying to give his best shot and succeeds at same. His efforts clearly indicated how this was the last chance for him to redeem his lost glory. He’s a must watch in the Mughal-E-Azam’s adaptation scene.
Varun Sharma is apt for his role but now I’ve started to fear of him getting stereotyped. He has been doing similar roles but FryDay just outlines his limitations as an actor. He should soon start picking up different genres in order to survive the competition. This doesn’t mean he’s any less of an actor in the film, he’s very good and perfectly complements Govinda. The extend cameos of Sanjay Mishra & Brijendra Kala are rib-tickling & worth the laughs. Digangna Suryavanshi is decent & Varun Sharma’s ‘screw ki size ka’ friend is hilarious.
FryDay is one entertaining film! The story isn’t anything you haven’t seen before but seeing Govinda in his elements is so satisfying for someone who has grown up on his films. A must watch for Govinda fans & those who love slapstick humour.
