Movie Review; Ghanchakkar


After two critically acclaimed movies Aamir and No One killed Jessica, Director Raj Kumar Gupta brings a comedy thriller movie: Ghanchakkar. Featuring Emran Hasmi opposite Vidya Balan in the lead. The title describes the movie very well, Ghanchakkar.

The story is about a safe-cracker Sanju (Emran Hasmi) who has now decided to quit burglary and start a decent life alongwith his two criminal friends Idris (Namit Das) and Pandit (Rajesh Sharma) after his last bank robbery. As per plan the robbery is successful and they decide to hide the booty till things cool down. And Sanju is given the job to hide it. Three months later, the duo Idris and Pandit return to check the booty and collect their shares but unfortunately Sanju refuses to recognise them. After some jhol-jhal, they come to know that due to an accident, Sanju lost his memory and is suffering from amnesia. They move in to Sanju’s home and decide to stay with Sanju and his Punjaban wife Neetu (Vidya Balan) put in the hope that he remembers where the loot is hidden. Ghanchakkar-panti now begins.

The chemistry between Ghanchakkar babu and his lovely trying to be fashionable wife Neetu is good enough to gives you a chuckle but not that LOL situation. The movie is very slow, and unrhythmic. Every hour you’ll feel that: ‘yaar when will it end. The real masala which viewers were expecting from this movie is also lacking. The characters try their best to save the film and somehow they succeed.

‘U la la’ girl in real as the ‘haayynnn!’ type Punjaban wife is real fun. It lands up being one of those Ritesh Deshmukh+Tusshar Kapoor type of inane slapsticks that have 100s of re runs on the movie channels.

Watch it only for Vidya Baalan

My rating : 2 out of 5.
