‘The Archies’: Karan Johar reviews Zoya Akhtar’s film, says Suhana Khan is here to ‘conquer’

Several Bollywood celebrities, including filmmaker Karan Johar, graced Zoya Akhtar's 'The Archies' premiere in Mumbai on December 5. After watching the film, Karan shared a heartfelt review, highlighting the film's strengths.

The movie, which marks the debut of Agastya Nanda, Suhana Khan, and Khushi Kapoor, is the Hindi adaptation of the famous American comic series.

Karan shared a poster of ‘The Archies’ and hailed the efforts of the director and her work partner, Reema Kagti.

From the costumes to cinematography everything left the filmmaker impressed.

He wrote, ‘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, the costume design will blow your mind with its on fleek detailing and aesthetic victories.’

Sharing details for the audience to watch out for, Karan revealed his favourite scene. He said, ‘Zoya and Reema not only speak of friendship and the traumas of genZ 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 favourite scene in the film) …but very subtly they address climate change, voice of a minority and the need to uprise to injustice all this packaged to 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.’

Coming to the cast of The Archies, Karan wrote, ‘The new kids on the block are fantastic… Agastya Nanda (get onto Insta baby) is fantastic! He makes a complicated and sometimes an unlikeable character so lovable! He had me at hello!!! @mihirahuja_ is Brilliant he has impeccable comic timing and yet scores in 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 heart breaker in every way !!!! Loved her! @suhanakhan2 as VERONICA is coquettish, vulnerable and sassy! All this with the ease of a veteran! Watch her moves and grooves and that sass hits its out of the green park! She’s here to stay and conquer! @yuvrajmenda is just so so good!!!!! He had me in tears in one scene and please note his “thank YOUU” 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!! Also dances with unabashed ease.’

‘I am not complaining,’ he signed out.

The star-studded premiere featured Shah Rukh Khan's family, Karisma Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Juhi Chawla, Malaika Arora, Shanaya Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Janhvi Kapoor, Katrina and Isabelle Kaif, Ranveer Singh, Atlee, Ranbir and Neetu Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Saba Azad, Ibrahim Ali Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Ananya Panday, and veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, and Rekha.
