Chhichhore is a college drama and shows Sushant, alongside his group of friends, describe occasions of his college life to his son. The movie is directed by Nitesh Tiwari, who is an IIT Bombay graduated class. Chhichhore was Nitesh’s second directorial venture. He previously directed the Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal.
Nitesh, a reporter from a popular news source talked about the process of casting all the actors. He said, “Most of the characters that I write, no matter small or big, they are extremely performance-oriented. So one thing is for given that everyone has to be a terrific performer. That’s like hygiene check for most of my films. This film also had very specific requirements because all the characters, there are seven of them, needed to look young and middle-aged also. You can’t take somebody who is very young, because then looking old doesn’t look convincing. You can’t take someone who is extremely old because looking young doesn’t look convincing. I was very clear that I need someone who would be in 30s, to make him or her look like 18-19 years old and also look like 42-45 years old. So that became very specific and hence this cast.”
Our reviewer Vibha Maru gave the film 2.5 out of 5 stars. She wrote, “Chhichhore delivers an important message on exam pressure, quite literally, with Sushant enunciating the message in a speech just in case you didn’t get it even after 2 hours of seeing the same. The film feels like a missed opportunity. Director Nitesh Tiwari had a subject that appealed to all generations, but he fails to create that magic that a memorable college drama should have had.”
