Based on Gujarati play ‘Baa Ne Gher Babo Avyo’, Carry On Kesar is a beautiful social comedy film written and directed by Vipul Mehta. Old age parenthood is considered as a stigma in our society. And Carry On Kesar tries to change it. Supriya Pathak and Darshan Jariwala are heart of the film. Supriya Pathak’s debut in urban Gujarati cinema couldn’t be more perfect. Even supporting actors Arachan Trivedi as Odha Kaka and Amish Tanna as Jiglo (Jignesh) have given noteworthy performances.
The film is written brilliantly with perfect pinch of comedy and emotions. Dialogues of the film by Ankit Trivedi and Bhumicka Trivedi are icing on the cake.
