Naram Garam - Film By Hrishikesh Mukherjee
19 August 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Hrishikesh Mukherjee has the knack of showing simplicity. He makes his fictional characters look so real , that every Indian empathizes with them. His protagonist is a real life man. He doesn't fight 50 men all alone, but yes he is intelligent enough to avoid all of them. He knows you cannot challenge your boss because earning a living is equally important as getting a girlfriend, but through diplomacy and a little bit of white lies he gets his way in the end. All in all a great film, with amazing characterization. Characters are always so strong in Mukherjee's film that they are always ingrained in memory, however small a part they play. Would give it a total thumbs up.
