3 Storeys Movie Review: See how hard truth are revealed so lightly

3 Storeys, as the title suggests the movie revolves around the lives of three people, who have nothing more in common than the chawl they live in. This movie is not something like Life: In A Metro, as not every life is interconnected but the good twists make the movie worth watching. 

The first story is about how a businessman Vilas Naik (Pulkit Samrat) is house hunting in Mumbai and lands up at Auntie Florie’s (Renuka Shahane) house. Now, it’s not simple as it looks like both of these characters have a backstory which has been revealed as the time progresses. The second story is a cliché Bollywood couple Varsha (Masumeh Makhija) and Shankar (Sharman Joshi). Their story explores a love story and how they have decided to give each other one year to make it big in life. The final and third story is about a young couple, Suhel (Ankit Rathi) and Malini (Aisha Ahmed) and how their cast comes between their love. None of these stories end without a major twist so hold on tight till the very end. 

Written by Althea Delmas Kausha, the narration of the three stories is great and you will not get bored and Arjun plays very smart moves to unveil the mystery behind every story. Also, the entire atmosphere created of the chawl intrigues you till the end. From starting the day with milk-line to trivial discussions happening around, makers nail this portion of the script. The panning of camera plays an important part in the film, through all the three stories and then while revealing the twists and turns.

Pulkit Samrat makes good use of his limited screen presence and you will be pleased to see him in this new avatar. Renuka Shahane nailed it in this role. She masters the Christian as well as Konkani. You'll see Masumeh Makhija as a pure natural in this one, even though she did not get much dialogues but her expressions are clear. Sharman Joshi does fair though he is not a really essential part of the story. Tarun Anand, the actor playing Varsha’s husband had the role similar to the lines of Raj Arjun from Secret Superstar. He is very good and literally makes us hate him.

A special mention of the debutantes Aisha Ahmed and Ankit Rathi, who charmed us in their own organic way. Aisha managed to never cross the blurred lines and please us all by the cute love brewing between them. 

Debutant director Arjun Mukherjee did a good job, being his first film. Targeting a limited audience with the debut film is always a big gamble for any director. Arijit Singh and Jonita Gandhi’s Bas Tu Hai is a delightful surprise. Both the audio and video work in the film. Clinton Cerejo's music is decent enough but some songs could have been edited.

For all of you who like a good suspense thriller, then you have to watch this one. Keep your expectations in control and you’ll surely get worth your ticket price. We would give 5.5/10 to this one!
