Santa Banta Pvt Ltd – Movie Review by Subhash K Jha

23 April 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring Boman Irani, Vir Das, Neha Dhupia, Lisa Haydon, Sanjay Mishra, Vijay Raaz, Ram Kapoor

Directed by Akash Deep

When it comes to goofy bantering, the two guys Santa and Banta are the tops. A film on their enthusiastic asininity could be just the prescription for an evening of lighthearted entertainment, especially when two actors with impeccable comic timing are playing the lead.

The saddest sight in a comedy is watching two talented comic actors struggling with lines that seem to be written as an ongoing joke on how unfunny jokes can be.

Santa Banta Pvt Ltd takes the two beloved Sikh characters from a million and one SMS jokes in the past 15 years, and squeezes them into a satirical straightjacket so suffocating and turgid it reduces the two comic heroes to a shadow of a caricature.

Don’t get me wrong. This film boasts of a wealth of comic »
