Jab ghar pe baith ke free mein tv pe dekhne milta hai toh paise dekar theatre kyun jaaye I wont be surprised to hear something like this if I ask someone to watch a movie called Khichdi. No wonder it took an international studio to back probably Indias first movie based on a tv serial. I am sure a lot of desi producers must have taken the patli gali route when producer J.D.Majethia approached them with this idea.
The story of this film revolves around the love story of Himanshu because his fathers wish was to see Himanshu wish come true and Himanshus wish is to have a memorable and epic love story like DDLJ, Ram Teri Ga(n silent)ga Maili, Tarzan & Paapi Gudia. Writer / Director Aatish Kapadia fits in enough gags from bringing God to their house, to adding the only song in the film with lines like Chal, chal Bhosle market chal wahi toh latest hai aajkal and also includes a sad version of the same which is hilarious. But his story does not have the strength to hold on as a whole what happens then is that you end up laughing at the jokes or at the character but you are not laughing with the story and that is where the film fails. Also if you dont have a sense of humor to appreciate this kind of comedy then most of the jokes will fall flat and the movie will not work for you. What also doesnt work is the production design. Sets designed for a tv serial does not look good on the big screen. What is completely paisa vasool in the film are the actors. the film brings all the actors from the serial on the big screen except one, the one who played Jayshree. For those who are not aware of these characters. All I can say is that when Diesel launched in India with a campaign called Be Stupid they should have appointed these characters as their brand ambassador. These characters and the actors who play these characters make stupid look cool. Especially Supriya Phatak & Rajeev Mehta (the same guy who said ac is on sir in Rangeela). These two are reason enough to watch this film.
Final Few words: I am very eager to see how the Indian audience reacts to this experiment of making movies out of successful tv series. If you are curious too, walk into a theater or else wait for dvd.
