The Archies Cast

The Archies delves into friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak, and rebellion themes. In the movie, newcomers Suhana Khan, Agastya Nanda, and Khushi Kapoor radiate brilliance. They also defy their debutant status by delivering exceptional performances. Despite this being their inaugural work, their on-screen chemistry, portrayal of emotions, relationships, and solidarity are remarkably commendable. Meanwhile, it significantly enhances the film’s genuineness and emotional richness.

Additionally, seasoned actors like Alyy Khan and Vinay Pathak shine brightly in their respective roles, stealing the limelight with their performances. Zoya Akhtar’s adept direction crafts a well-balanced and impactful ensemble. It contributes substantially to the film’s depth and excellence. The background score also seamlessly complements the storytelling, serving as a crucial element.

However, the primary flaw of ‘The Archies’ lies in its central conflict, somewhat failing to meet expectations. Nonetheless, it may evoke nostalgia for your circle of friends. The endearing banter and innocent jokes among the characters also carry an effortless charm that’s simply too amusing to disregard.
