“ Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya is an absolute torture, this movie is even beneath the disaster that was Humshakals. A bizarre script and pathetic acting is what makes Balwinder Singh truly infamous. ”

Not very long back we had an unbearable comedy called "Humshakals" which was difficult to sit through. Now we have another similar comedy to give it some competition..
The lead actors in this film are singers Mika and Shaan. To be fair to them their acting is not bad as first timers but what brings down the film is the bizarre script and the obnoxious situations which the director tries to pass off as comedy.
A few gems in the dialogue. Some one describes Mumbai as the city " Jo raat ko jagti hai aur din ko bhagti hai". Shaan in desperation tells Mika " tu mera humdard hai ki surdard?"
The story is about two guys ( Mika and Shaan) both named Balwinder Singh who try to convince a grandfather ( Anupam Kher ) that each of them is his long lost grandson. They are joined in this caper by two others who are trying to win this same game.This leads to a lot of complicated situations which get sorted out in the end.
Director Sunil Agnihotri tries to create comedy out of situations but is not able to raise laughs.There is too much of over acting and hamming going on. At one point in one of the chaotic situations, Anupam Kher exclaims " Stop it, ye kya ho raha hai?" The climax takes the cake with 6 male characters dressed as females trying to kidnap a patient in a wheel chair from a hospital.These situations are neither comic nor slapstick.
The tolerable part of the film are the item songs which are fairly well done . It would be nice to fast forward all the scenes and see the songs only.
Acting wise except Anupam Kher everyone is either overacting or hamming away to the point of irritation specially Rajpal Yadav and Vindoo Singh.
Music is the saving grace of an otherwise poor film.
