John Abraham has struck gold with his debut production venture Vicky Donor, dealing with an out of the box idea of sperm donation. While TV actors venturing into cinema Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam have won accolades, Annu Kapoor, Dolly Ahluwalia and Kamlesh Gill have been highly appreciated.
Dialogue is super-fun, folding in authentic Delhi's C-Block lingo, with an over-the-top cinematic license. As for the leading pair who are making the progression from TV: Ayushmann shows great promise, and serves up a fine performance while making it look effortless. Yami Gautam, too, impresses with a strong screen presence. So there you have it - served up at the cinemas this week is a hearty film that makes you connect with the characters while making you making you laugh at the adorable idiosyncrasies of a Lajpat Nagar life.

Shoojit Sircar takes you on a madcap ride with a solid dose of sanity thrown in. He does not just shoot in the dark, but has a blueprint in front of him as he begins Vicky Donor. The mood, setting, establishing the reason to donate and the final salvo he fires at the climax work big time.
Dolly Ahluwalia and Kamlesh Gill are splendid in their loud mad-cap characterisation. They outperform themselves. Annu Kapoor as the distressed doctor who has to satisfy his patients is competent. Both the debutants Ayushmann and Yami Gautam too, come up with an outstanding performance. Vicky Donor is not your typical Bollywood film. It is different. Daringly different. John Abraham has done well to partner as producer in this film that should generate a good Box Office return!
