Three actors play a stellar role in Rajesh Mapuskar's directorial debut, FERRARI KI SAWAARI - Boman Irani, Sharman Joshi and child artiste Ritvik Sahore, who is also making his debut.

For the first 45 minutes Mapuskar, along with these three, takes you on a flaming ride. However, just before the interval, he hits a road bump. An exhaustive scene where the politician has second thoughts on wanting a Ferrari for his son's wedding gets a bit tedious taking the fun out of the outstanding drive so far. It picks up again after the break and then stutters and stops before speeding off again to once again come to a grinding halt, just before the end.

The end is unnecessarily extended when the movie could have concluded when Kayo returns home from the hospital with his dad and grandfather. Instead, Mapuskar subjects the audience to a duplicate Sachin Tendulkar; a horrible mistake. What was the need for this Mapuskar, when you had succeeded in having Sachin play a pivotal role without him actually being there with a powerful screenplay? Moreover, no Under-14 camp to England has been shown 'live', on television, at least not as yet. A glorious innings is cut short by these rather immature, self-destructive shots!

Having said that, on the whole, FKS is worth a ride. Rusy (Sharman Joshi) is a single father, a caring son and a doting dad. An upright Parsi who always does what is right. So what if the law has not witnessed his 'crime'. He is focused on his 12-year-old son Kayo's (Ritvik Sahore) cricket. He knows that he is in a league of his own. With his meager income as a head clerk at RTO he is not able to fund Kayo's upcoming camp to the mecca of cricket, Lords. He applies for a loan but understands it will take time in coming; he buys a mobile phone in the hope of getting a call to avail of a loan. When no pesky calls come, he goes to a bank and is refused. By a twist of fate, he chances upon a wedding planner who wants a Ferrari for a politician's son's wedding for an hour.

He is asked to request his dad Deboo (Boman Irani) to ask Sachin Tendulkar this favour. In return he is promised the money for his son's camp. When he goes to Sachin's residence to articulate his request, he is accidentally handed a bunch of keys and he zooms off with the Ferrari. This is the first time, when this upright man does a wrong thing. And when Kayo learns of this, he is heart-broken!

So FKS is then the story of a father who stands by his son and is always there for his dad even though he is perennially running him down. In his son he sees his unfulfilled dream being realized; why his dad is such a nerd and against the game of cricket cannot be revealed, because that would be taking the sting out of the tale.

Just sitting on a chair, glued to the television set the whole day, sporting a disheveled look, grumbling and getting his way, Boman gives an outstanding performance. The actor is known to be repetitively loud and annoying at times, but here, he actually sobers down to forcefully articulate that life has not been fair to him. A flawless performance.

Sharman Joshi has outdone himself. He has set a benchmark to up the ante for his next performance. He has got the character of Rusy spot on; his style, body language, dialogue delivery, and his respect for his dad in the midst of his grumpiness and the dreams for his son... everything falls in place with this sincere effort of his.

CHECK OUT: Big B- Greatest asset of FERRARI KI SAWAARI is its simplicity

As for Ritvik Sahore, he has to get the award in the Best Debut for a newcomer category. A confident performance, worthy of applause.

The other actors who shine are Seema Pahwa as the wedding planner, Nilesh Diwekar as the politician's son, the actor who plays the politician and the coach, Satyadeep Misra.

A few scenes hit out for its ingenuity. The scene when Rusy buys a mobile and his dad dials from the land line and then barges in the bathroom (where he has sent him) when he realizes why he has made the purchase. Watch the respect that Rusy has for his dad even at this age and Deboo's rage. All this while Rusy still has the mobile to his ear even though his dad is two feet from his face! Another scene is when Rusy goes to a bank for a loan, because 'they have not yet called'.

FKS is a fun ride. Fathers too busy with their work to attend to their kids 'growing up' emotional needs will get an 'education'.
