CAST & CREW
Mann Gaye Mughal-e-Azam revolves around a Kalakar Theatre Company, which does small theatre acts to earn a living. While doing a stage act titled “Mughal-e-Azam,” they come to know that an underworld Don has planned a nasty plot to plant a bomb and successfully detonate it to bring Indian Government to its knee. The producer of the theatre company (Paresh Rawal) and his actors devise plans to foil the bombing with the help of an RAW agent( Rahul Bose). Things turn more complex as Rahul falls for the producer’s wife ( Mallika Sherawat) who in turn is in love with an ISI agent (Kay Kay Menon). What follows is a comedy riot as these people don different roles and change their appearances regularly to deceive the underworld don. Their efforts finally pay off as they manage to foil the bombing and hence save the city.
Mann Gaye Mughal-e-Azam is an average comedy film that has nothing new; it is the same old concept of saving our beloved India plus the comedy infused into it. Screenplay though is fantastic which involves a hearty participation of every artist present in this movie. A senior actor like Paresh Rawal who worked in similar comedy films like “Bhagam Bhaag” effortlessly deliver fine rib-tickling performances. Other actors such as Rahul Bose, Kay Kay Menon too look suitable in their respective roles. The only thing that dangerously lurks to devour this movie is its poorly executed script that could have been directed better. Also, some actors like Mallika Sherawat over react a bit too much which plucks the good moments out of this movie.
Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon steal the show with their witty acts. There is no denying that Paresh Rawal is one of the most successful comic actors in India and has done many satirical roles. However, we see the reflections of his past performances in this movie. Kay Kay Menon, on the other hand, manages to grasp the energy spread by Rawal and acts according to it.
WHAT’S NOT THERE?
Mann Gaye Mughal-e-Azam is a patriotic affair that involves comedy and thus, as a responsible and as comedy-loving citizens we could give this movie one shot but just once mind you!
