However, the star is yet to taste success in films. Kapil had first tried his hand at acting two years ago, but was unable to impress the audience. And now he is back with another big screen outing, Rajiv Dhingra’s Firangi.
The film doesn’t have an engaging plotline or a love-story to vouch for… a big disappointment for Kapil Sharma fans.
Directed by Rajeev Dhingra the film is aimed at bringing the acting chops of the comedian in limelight, and his soft-spoken, subtle character dipped in the sades of sepia, is expected to impress his fanbase.
Firangi is unlike Kapil’s debut film as the subtle, conversational humour takes a front seat instead of punchlines.
With his talent of healing people with a ‘kick’, Manga lands a job with British authorities only to displease his fellow villagers and even his lover. Then begins the journey of realisation and winning the love and respect back from his lady.
Set during the peak of the independence movement, the film is set in Punjab and tells the story of a man Manga who isn’t bothered by the British atrocities and didn’t care about the freedom struggle.
After a hilarious debut with Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karun, Kapil Sharma is back on big screen with Firangi.
