CAST & CREW
MORE CAST & CREW
Watching a comedy film with a poker face is something very unusual. The name of the film itself makes you give a second thought on whether it will be worth your time and money. This anchor/actor Manish Paul starrer film is directed by Vishwash Paandya and written by Sanjeev Puri.
This film begins with the 25th birthday of Baba (Manish Paul), where he discovers many secrets about his father Charudutt Sharma ( Anupam Kher) and his family business. He was in disbelief all this while thinking that his father spent all day knitting at home. This birthday came along with many surprises and revelations. His father opens up to him about his trading in cashews being a false business. Instead he traded in contract killers from the few past generations. The writers have induced the plot with a twist of local goons, corrupt ministers, and a conman. The first few scenes in the film are flashbacks, and the continuing scenes are silly songs with Manish Paul dancing on the bridge with his girlfriend. There are no connections in all the scenes. Baba, however, is expected to match his fathers’ footsteps.
The film’s plot does not make any sense. It is a comedy film without the least humor. The unnecessarily loud background sounds trying to add some humor, puts you off.
Manish Paul gets to play a 25-year-old boy, which seems impossible to believe at first. He is good on stage anchoring rather than acting on screens because it requires a certain set of skills which he surely couldn’t showcase through this film. Manjari Phadnis is beautiful but negligible in the film.
1. An honest opinion would say nothing’s there.
2. It is the attempt of the director which can be appreciated here.
3. The cast is brilliant.
What’s not there?
1. It is a chaotic film with the plot making no sense to the audience.
3. It is a very clumsy movie.
It is not worth your time and money. This weekend has a n=bunch of other alternatives for you.
