Review of the film Zwigato: Kapil Sharma and Shahana Goswami appear in this gripping story. Zwigato, which is set in Bhubaneswar, chronicles the life of Manas (Kapil), who was forced to stay at home without a job for eight months due to pandemic-related unemployment.
The phrase “such films are made for, meant for, and suited for film festivals” should be dropped. Zwigato is initially thought of as “film festival material” because it is produced at a pace that allows you to get a sense of the tale being delivered without making it blatantly commercial. Yet, after watching this story that is based closely on truth, you will realize that it has been long overdue for a movie about food delivery riders to be made because they have become an integral part of urban life.
But, Sagar Desai’s distinctive background soundtrack is just so perfect and gives life to the entire tale by bringing depth and emotions to the people and their experiences. Watch Zwigato to get a glimpse into the lives of those we don’t give enough credit to. It may not be a flawless movie, but it does start a discussion about the broken system that this service class has to live with, despite the fact that not much is being done to change it.
