Vicky Donor is a romantic comedy between a Punjabi boy and a Bengali girl set against the backdrop of sperm donation. It has a light hearted take on the issue of artificial insemination.
Vicky Arora [Ayushymann Khurrana], a young, good looking Punjabi guy from Lajpat Nagar, is the only son and of no financial support to his mother Dolly [Dolly Ahluwalia], a widow, who runs a small beauty parlor from home. As luck would have it, Dr. Chaddha and Vicky come face to face, where Chaddha concludes that Vicky could be that sperm donor he has been looking for.
From here on, Dr. Chaddha's days and nights are spent in convincing Vicky to become a donor till he finally gives in. Vicky finds his love interest in Ashima Roy [Yami Gautam], a pretty Bengali girl, who works in a bank. But soon their hunky dory world comes crashing down because of Vicky's past as a sperm donor.
The story, screenplay and dialogues, penned by Juhi Chaturvedi, are noteworthy. Director Shoojit Sircar does a fine job. He makes the film a joy ride that you cannot afford to miss. Shoojit Sircar maintains a film balance between entertainment and emotional value of the film. The music is splendid. 'Rum Whiskey' adds to the entertainment, while 'Pani Da Rang' is very soothing.
Performances are first rate. Ayushmann is a complete natural and makes for a promising debut. Annu Kapoor is an exceptional actor and has performed very well in this film too. Yami Gautam makes an impressive debut.
On the whole, Vicky Donor is highly entertaining cinema with a novel concept in terms of the story. A must watch.
