Vicky Donor is a silver lining for childless parents
Vicky Donor is a debut production of John Abraham. The story line revolves around an unemployed Delhi youth who starts selling sperms initially with reluctance but later starts enjoying it. After..

WHEN MEGHNA Gulzar in her debut movie Filhal brought the concept of surrogate mothers into the limelight in the early 2000s, the audience sternly negated the concept though they saved the songs of the flick. Now when Vicky Donor, a film with a strong theme, has done quite spectacularly well at the box office, and has appealed to a wide strata of audience in the country - the film's popularity is a reflection of the Indian movie audience's mature outlook, and readiness to take out time and pay for sensible visual story-telling.

As the film revolves around sperm donation and its advantages, it has, to some extent, made it alright to talk about it and discuss it in a non-judgmental manner. Vicky Donor can also be seen as a film that informs and educates hundreds and thousands of parents who are deprived of the pleasure of parenthood due to one or the other reason due to poor quality sperm. The movie lightens your mood and also shows a silver lining in the gloomy and murky lives of childless parents.

Vicky Donor has made such an impact that infertility clinics in Gujarat have reported a sudden spurt (no pun intended) in sperm donors - with Gujaratis lining up to donate sperm and also be paid for their contribution to childless parents. 

And when one considers the story-telling and acting in the film, Ayushman Khurana, who plays the lead, has come across as a versatile actor who can also sing, that too in a melodious silky voice. Annu Kapoor has once again proved his mettle after his role in Rituparno Ghose's “Raincoat”.

Keep it up John Abraham, and from now on, the audience has a valid reason to expect more from the film's director Shoojit Sarcar.
