MOVIE REVIEW: Ram Singh Charlie is delightfully portrayed by Kumud Mishra. He has done complete justice to the titular role. Kumud Mishra gave his career best performance, his impeccable expression and surprising act makes it a worth watch.
Divya Dutta got limited screen space but she manages to deliver a good performance. Farrukh Seyer has also done a great job. The rest of the supporting casts are just fine in their roles.
The movie is well-executed, simple yet heartwarming story, but this Chaplinesque film was capable of more. The screenplay is the first half is more engaging as compared to its second half. Although the runtime is around 95 mins still there was a room for more crisp editing in the second half.
