Khosla Ka Ghosla Reviews
The promising debut of one of India's most noble directors.
The best part of the part is that its humor is well handled and does not depends on showing the direct Gags which most of the below the Average Bollywood Comedies Do.
Everything is just power packed...
Overall, it is difficult to find anything wrong with this movie.The direction is almost good, the pace fast and the movie hardly digresses. It is set in a middle class setting that you would normally find in Hrishikesh Mukharjee or Basu Chatterjee movies. There are no big stars that try to hog the lime light.
The movie is divided into two half. First half is serious. This movie follows the path of 80's movies, mainly "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro" or "Ankush" that focuses on the corruption prevalent in the Indian bureaucracy. However, realising the fact that things haven't changed in last 30 years makes you sad - that stereotypical corrupt politicians, party leaders and police officers.
The second half than changes the direction and turns funny, or say more farcical. As in Hindi they say "Tedhi Ungli Se Ghee Nikalne Ka". But to realise that a greedy but seasoned guy like Boman Irani would be easily fooled seems hard to digest. There are some funny one liners.
Anupam Kher is plays the role of the middle aged patriarch with perfection. The best part that I liked was his difficult in eating a pizza. Rest of the cast does their job well. Only, the romantic angle between Parvin Dabas and Tara Sharma could have been easily avoided. It is just a time waster. Same is the character of Anupam Kher's daughter, which looks terribly out of place and has nothing to contribute to the movie.
Overall, it is that escapist popcorn entertainment that Indian audience crave for and Dibakar Bannerjee delivers. But I wouldn't call this movie a masterpiece of put it at same level with "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron"or likes.
