It’s cute, it has moments that will make your eyes moistened and last but not the least it is all about Enakshi Dasgupta (Shweta Tripathi) who is sixteen and hairless in Siliguri, well, I am talking about Qasim Khallow’s Gone Kesh that tackles the issue of alopecia in a light-hearted, yet thought proving manner.
Enakshi is an attractive teenager who loves to dance, but she is struck with premature balding. Enakshi is in a mess both physically and mentally. Her parents Debashri (Deepika Amin) and Anup (Vipin Sharma) take Enakshi (Shweta Tripathi) to a series of doctors, to find a cure for her, but by the time Enakshi is diagnosed with alopecia, it is almost too late.
Enakshi starts losing self-esteem, especially after she gets rejected by prospective grooms because of her condition. In all of this, we get to meet Shirsho Roy (Jitendra Kumar), her college mate who secretly is in love with her as he is too shy to express his adoration.
From depression to feeling dejected, from being made fun off to feeling helpless, Enakshi goes through a gamut of emotions. Dancing is the only solace that Enakshi has and eventually, it’s a dancing competition which forms the very backbone of the second half.
Qasim Khallow has created a world which is relatable and real. Every actor has given their hundred percent, but it’s Vipin Sharma and Deepika Amin who are the star performers of Gone Kesh. Both have delivered rock-solid performances, which I am sure every parent would identify with.
All in all, Gone Kesh is a film that you can watch and I am sure once you come out of it, you will have a part of the film with you. Gone Kesh has loads of moments which will entertain you, make you ponder and will for sure make you value your parents even more.
The film may not go on to become a huge Box Office success, but this one is worth a watch.
