Karan Johar Reviews The Archies: Suhana Khan Conquers, Khushi Kapoor Is A Beautiful Heartbreaker

-

Just a couple of hours ahead of its OTT release, The Archies has become one of the most anticipated Gen Z movies of 2023. The Zoya Akhtar directorial brings together seven debutants, three star kids, and four newcomers to form a stellar cast. The Archies first review is out, and it is none other than Karan Johar to speak some biased yet positive words for the film.

The Archies will be released on Netflix on December 7. All eyes are on Suhana Khan, Agastya Nanda, and Khushi Kapoor. The three-star kids hail from some of the most prominent and talented Bollywood families.

On Tuesday, a special premiere of The Archies was held for Bollywood in Mumbai. It was a star-studded evening as celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Rekha, Ayushmann Khurrana, Vir Das, Kajol, Karan Johar, and Janhvi Kapoor, among others, graced the event.

Karan Johar shares The Archies movie review

Becoming the first person to review the Netflix original, the filmmaker was one of the few celebrities who had early access to the upcoming fictitious drama. For the uninitiated, The Archies is a Hindi adaptation of a popular American comic book that goes by the same name.

The movie is all about love, friendship, heartbreaks, teenage drama, rebellion, and seven youngsters who are on a mission to save the fictional town of Riverdale.

Karan Johar took to Instagram and shared a poster of the film as he penned down a long note reviewing the film. In his review, he appreciated the entire cast and said the movie made him laugh and cry at the same time.

He began with, "#thearchies has been watched!!! A town of Anglo-Indians called RIVERDALE! The year was 1964. And straight from the credit roll, you're sucked right into @zoieakhtar's world, and with her impeccable craft and command, she makes sure you're hooked! The production design, the cinematography,the choreography, and the costume design will blow your mind with their on-fly detailing and aesthetic victories."


"Zoya and Reema not only speak of friendship and the traumas of Gen Z love but also of what a teenage mind can feel when they combat their sexual orientation and fear judgement (watch out for this tender moment, my favorite scene in the film)... But very subtly, they address climate change, the voice of a minority, and the need to rise to injustice, all packaged in a zingy and zany musical!! I felt young and wanted to be a friend to this magnificent 7 and go back in time where I spent hours reading this delicious comic series," KJo further added.

Karan Johar applauds the performance of The Archies cast

Speaking of the performances by the seven debutants, the filmmaker further wrote, 'The new kids on the block are fantastic... Agastya Nanda (get onto Instagram, baby) is fantastic! He makes such a complicated and sometimes unlikeable character so lovable! He had me at hello!!! @mihirahuja_ is brilliant he has impeccable comic timing and yet scores in a very emotional beat! I loved @dotandthesyllables. She is like sunshine through and through. @khushi05k, as Betty broke my heart in the most beautiful way! Watch out for her silent moments and her compassionate eyes! A heartbreaker in every way!!!! Loved her!'

"@yuvrajmenda is just so good!!!!! He had me in tears in one scene, and please note that his 'thank you' is going viral very soon!!!! @vedangraina, as Reggie walks the talk! He oozes charm and confidence in equal measure and has that movie star swag!! He also dances with unabashed ease! Congratulations to @zoieakhtar and @reemakagti1 for making my evening so special! Nostalgia and a rocking musical! I am not complaining," Karan concluded.
