Loved it. Very real, down to earth, believeable, and comical.
Quite the usual dysfunctional middle-class average Indian family setting. Each on their own trip on how they want to run their life and along with them take the rest on a ride as well.
Boman Irani rocks, and so does Anupam Kher. The 1st opening song – Chak de phattey- is very catchy and I hear another Kher is responsible for the rendition, Kailash Kher.
Here’s a story recap. [honestly can’t believe wikipedia has a stub and an entry to movie too!] A rediff masala version here
Once upon a time quite long ago, my father was an Anupam Kher and we watched him battle a long drawn out civil court process as he valiantly fought for his land. We did get it eventually, but I can imagine the notorious folks who actually get away with dadgiri and goondagiri.. Despite the not-so-pleasant memories, this movie made me chuckle and laugh and of course as it is bollywood, quick happy endings seems a given.
Kids liked it. That’s for you Terri in case you reading…
