Mitron movie review
After impressing the audience with her performance on the small screen, Telly actor Kritika Kamra has made her big Bollywood debut opposite Jackky Bhagnani in Mitron. Helmed by Filmistaan fame Nitin Kakkar and bankrolled by Abundantia Entertainment, With songs like Kamariya and This Party Is Over Now, Mitron has captured a pulse of the youth and has certainly raised excitement among the audience for the film.
Jay (Jackky Bhagnani) is so laid back and carefree that he literally won’t even lift a pen if he’s not meant to. Avni (Kritika Kamra) is a girl who will make him do it. It’s clear that the two don’t have much in common besides their middle-class backgrounds and the fact that their parents are extremely bossy and want to get them married as soon as possible.
While Avni’s parents are more realistic when it comes to being parent-like, for the sake of comedy, Jai’s parents, his dad especially, is shown as so overbearing that it seems unreal. At times, even the jokes don’t stick. While Neeraj Sood, as the dad, has some genuinely funny moments, his character is perennially at the edge of his narrow seat which gets too much.

Performances by Jai’s friends, debutant actors Pratik Gandhi and Shivam Parekh stand out. Pratik, especially as the cocky loser, makes for some great comic relief. Kritika Kamra plays her part well as a strong woman who is vulnerable when it comes to matters of the heart. She makes the time she is on screen count. Jackky Bhagnani, on the other hand, does not. His is a very flat, one-dimensional performance.
In her review for FilmiBeat, Madhuri V gave the film 3 stars out of 5 and noted that even though Mitron is an adaptation of Pelli Choopulu, the filmmaker has given the film his own unique touch and brings a certain sense of freshness. As Jackky Bhagnani as slacker Jai and Kritika Kamra as ambitious Avni join hands to start their own food truck, their entrepreneurial journey seems quite relatable

Madhuri adds that it is wonderful to see how the female protagonist of the film gets to be the main hero most of the times and call the shots. With this, the director steers clear of stereotypes and stays true to the milieu of Gujarat.
Giving the film 3 out of 5 stars, Devesh Sharma in his review for Filmfare noted that Jackky has delivered one of his most believable performances till date while Kritika makes a promising transition from the small screen to the big screens. Credits also go to the spectacular performances by supporting cast Pratik Gandhi and Shivam Parekh, who essay the role of Jacky’s friends in the film.
Sonal Pandya in her review for Cinestaan wrote that Mitron is a film that exceeds expectations. Giving Mitron 3 stars, Sonal stated that this rom-com will leave you in splits from beginning to the end. With never a dull moment in the film, the film takes the viewers on their journey from acquaintances to business partners to friends and maybe something more.
