Zwigato is a film that will haunt you after you come out of the theater. Though the film looks like an art film and is made for film festivals, it has a beautiful story that everyone can relate to it. This film explores the hidden side of food delivery apps and delivery boys that no one explored before. The film gets into the main plot without wasting much time and the first half has brilliant scenes of how middle-class life functions, and how a middle-class man struggles to take care of his family, despite the pace of the film, it has brilliant scenes which make us invested in the story.

The second half gets even more interesting when Manas fights with the food delivery app management due to the poor ratings and here we get to see how the app algorithm functions, and how the company manipulates delivery agents with incentives all these scenes were shown beautifully. Over a point, the pace falls flat in the second half but it immediately kicks off with a new point called class diversity, how the india developing gig economy and how these gig companies manipulate agents like being your own boss, working in your free time but behind all these, there is the big strategy working which common man will never understand and director Nandita Das showed is under currently.

Talking about performances, Kapil Sharma is known for his comedy shows but he breaks the stereotype that Kapil Sharma can do serious roles also. He just lives in the Manas roles and emoted many scenes with his nuances, Shahana Goswami as Pratima nailed it and the rest of the cast did their best.

Kudos to Nandita Das for exploring the hidden side of food delivery apps and delivery boys’ struggles. The way she presented the story is brilliant and keeping aside the slow narration, she succeeded in engaging the audience.

Technically, Zwigato looks great and Ranjan Palit’s cinematography is so real as he beautifully captured the whole film with natural lighting, and  Sagar Desai’s music is soulful.

Overall, Zwigato is a brilliant tale that showcases the hidden side of food delivery apps and delivery boys’ struggles.
