Gali Gali Chor Hai (2012) - Movie Rating | Trailer, Songs, Cast, Story - Desimartini.com

Verdict: Gali Gali Chor Hai looks promising in the beginning but becomes extremely boring as it progresses thanks to its awful script. Even the film’s talented star cast fails to help. Skip it!

Plot: Bharat is a part time cashier and part time "Hanuman" at Ramleela, residing in the city of Bhopal with his father Shivnarayan. Bharat is married to Nisha a schoolteacher, loving and caring but doubting wife. The small and happy family lives with a forced upon guest Amita, a young, beautiful girl who works at a call center. Bharat wants to graduate from his role as 'Hanuman' to 'Lord Ram' someday which is being portrayed by Sattu Thripati, younger brother of MLA Manku Thripati, both having individual problems with him. The story that follows is about how an ordinary fan of everyday usage meant at providing a cool breeze on hot days, turns Bharats life into a metaphorical remark aimed at the system by making this part time cahier slash hanuman into the front page national news heard from lane to lane filled with thieves.

Gali Gali Chor Hai Review - Galli galli mein Bore haiFeb 3, 2012NewsInternal bias : I find movies about bhrashtachar and aam aadmi etc, very tediousThe first half of Galli galli mein chor hai is like Office Office with a different star cast. Akshay Khanna plays an appropriately named Bharat who invokes the wrath of the local politician/goon by refusing to let out a room in his house for the politicians office. Incensed, he starts a weird story about some old table fan getting stolen from Bharats, which he then has to retrieve from the police. This starts an endless round of visits to the court and the usual bribes at every level till he gets the fan back. Only its not his fan and then post interval he tries to get rid of it but cant. It then gets mixed up with another bag containing a bomb and then next thing you know he is jailed for being a terrorist. Then starts another sorry boring round of bribes etc till he loses it in the last scene, in a very tame kind of way. There is also a side angle about the wife getting jealous of their paying guest (Mughda Godse in shorts, enough said), which is completely unnecessary.The problem is, this is a comedy trying to make a serious political comment and the twain does not meet. If they had kept it about a guy trying to get rid of a fan that keeps coming back it would have made you laugh. Or if it was about the common mans fight against the system then it could have made you feel righteous. But there is no such thing as comic righteousness or righteous comedy. So it flounders and limps along t a tame end. Akshay Khanna is cute but confused. I guess he cant help if the script is confused about its job. Satish Kaushik as the dad is endearing. Anu Kapoor hams it up in his typical fashion as the havaldar but is effective and Vijay Raaz makes a good thief. Kailash Kher sings a song on corruption like a sutradhar in the beginning and the end. It would have helped if he did more of it through the movie. May have given it a more concrete form and direction.I was texting away when the mandatory item number started but thank God I looked up just in time to see the dancers bra light up in two big rounds, like Amitabhs costume in Yaraana. That was totally the high point of the movie.The movie is mercifully short and does have a few good laughs. If you are willing to overlook its lack of purpose or direction and are ok with taking it as it comes you can watch it.
