House Arrest is a 2019 comedy film directed by Shashanka Ghosh and Samit Basu. The movie released on November 15, 2019. The film stars Ali Fazal as Karan, an individual whose self-imposed home confinement plays out like a comedy of errors. This Netflix original film is a situational comedy and it reportedly depicts a series of disasters, most of them unintended. Apart from Ali Fazal, House Arrest also stars Shriya Pilgaonkar in a pivotal role.
The movie has an inconsistent tone and fails to thrill the audience, according to critics. However, Barkha Singh’s performance as Pinky was liked by the audience. Barkha also shared a picture with the gang.
@NetflixIndia Why would you dump a movie like #housearrest on us. This movie is a torture in all respect, there's no surprises, no story whatsoever. A great concept but executed so poorly. Utter failure.— Katniss🌻 (@a_bsquatulate) November 15, 2019
Netflix original #HouseArrest is disappointing. When it comes to Rom-Coms, now a days they hardly have any surprises. But that's okay. You can still make an interesting film as there're various aspects to explore. But this one follows a boring & routine path.— AAVISHKAR (@aavishhkar) November 17, 2019
This year Netflix also released Drive, starring Sushant Singh Rajput, and Bard Of Blood starring Emraan Hashmi. While Bard of Blood was critically acclaimed, Drive couldn't quite manage to garner the same level of critical praise. And given that this year has not been successful for Netflix’s Indian movies/shows, House Arrest is a unique concept but the movie fails to deliver consistency, according to critics.
