Double XL Movie Review: It’s Not Even Half The Fun As Nothing Works In This Poorly Executed Drama Except Huma Qureshi!

It showcases Sonakshi (Saira Khanna) and Huma (Rajshree Trivedi) who are two plus-sized women in the film as they explore the society that often connects a woman’s prettiness or beauty with her size

Helmed by Satram Ramani, Double XL stars Huma Qureshi, Sonakshi Sinha, Zaheer Iqbal, Mahat Raghavendra. It has been released today in theatres. It was earlier scheduled for release on October 14. Milind Jog has worked on its cinematography. The runtime of the movie is 130 minutes or 2 hours 10 minutes.

Plot

It showcases Sonakshi (Saira Khanna) and Huma (Rajshree Trivedi) who are two plus-sized women in the film as they explore the society that often connects a woman’s prettiness or beauty with her size. Rajshree wishes to become a sports commentator, while Saira aspires to make a fashion documentary so that to start her own brand. Rajshree confronts rejections from some suitors because she’s ‘healthy’ and later gets a call from her dream sports channel for a job interview, but they don’t accept her because she doesn’t remain suitable into the body type that brings viewers.

Analysis

Huma Qureshi is honest and decent as she has spark throughout. Talking about Sonakshi, she remains uninspired with no layer to character as rest of the cast. The music in the film is tedious, making it more torturous for audience. Background score is routine and usual. The poor direction of it takes the edge off completely.

Verdict

It has poor writing across all scenes with a pathetic screenplay as it doesn’t go anywhere beyond a one-line plot. Ramani has to look over the details in script without adequate time to give it finesse. The social messaging is good and breaks the stereotypical point of body shaming but execution spoils it.

It will not find many takers at box office and poor opening of 50 lacs nett means that lifetime of under 4-5 cr nett.
