Savaale Samali is supposed to be a comic caper. It is not. For the simple reason that it fails to approach the concept of storytelling in a holistic way. Imagine a story with a lot of dialog and not much happening in terms of actual events. That’s as simple as it gets.
The film is about two employees of a television company who are on the lookout for something that will take their company’s name into the clouds. The reason – TopTV is so badly insolvent, they can’t even afford to pay their employees. The channel seemingly runs on an endless supply of hopeful employees whose first instinct on not getting paid is to stay back instead of just walking out. There is some humor attempted by way of repartees and trading insults. There is even some violence that is supposed to invoke laughter from the audience. Unfortunately, we’ve seen a lot of that.
Watch the trailer and stay home. That’s your contribution to society.
