Political satires have been well appreciated in our country. This is another one. Though the film's trailer gave a decent idea as to what the film's about, once you watch the full movie you will come out a completely changed man. Read on the movie review to know why...
What is it about?
Two sons set out to get their father what he dreamed of all through his life–the ultimate sign of respect. High on thrill and laughter, this film takes the audience through the unbelievable attempt of Shekhar (Divyendu Sharma) and Subhash Joshi (Manu Rishi) to provide their father an Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami (21 gun salute). Purushotam Joshi (Anupam Kher) is a common man who fails to earn his bit of appreciation despite being completely honest during his life-long service as a government employee. Joshi’s sons are, however, willing to go the extra mile to get their father his only wish. But will they succeed in their endeavour?
The movie is high on acting talent. Divyendu Sharma, Manu Rishi, Aditi Sharma have done a great job but it is Anupam Kher who is spectacular. Anupam's portrayal of a common man gets him all the applause. The story line of the film is also very decent and relevant to the present day scenario. The music of the film is good and will stay with you even after you have left the theatres. The cinematography is also breathtaking as Mumbai has been shown in a very subtle yet raw manner. The first half is high on drama whereas it is the second half that takes you through a roller coaster ride of laughter and thrill. There will be points in the second half where you will jump out of your seats with laughter. The message given via the film is very deep rooted but they have presented it in a humorous way and that keeps the momentum lively and doesn't allow it to become boring at any point. There is also a character in the film who is a news reporter and he has been named Arnab Goswami, which increases your delight quotient every time he appears onscreen. Neha Dhupia treats you to an item number where she is seen copying all famous item songs till date like Kajraa re, Sheila ki jawaani, Choli ke peeche kya hai, etc. Ravindra Gautam's direction is fabulous. If you loved watching films like Phas Gaya Re Obama, Kya Dilli Kya Lahore, Well Done Abba, Bhootnath Returns, Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga, Tere Bin Laden, etc, you will sure as hell love this one.
The length of the film could have been easily reduced. The second half drags a bit and you will feel at the end that it could have been made more compact.
It's worth it. The movie's story line and comedy punches are great. If you are a fan of political satires, this is one movie you should not miss. It's worth every penny you spend.
