a farce on how India is being treated like a commodity
10 June 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I think it was a great fun film because it was India's first farce. It was refreshing as it was different from the usual predictable movies with cardboard characters and in fact won many awards in Bengal. Indians who have a sense of humor loved will you!Also Javed Jaffery and Shahrukh were great.Ketan Mehta is an interesting director and likes to experiment with his films, so it is always a pleasure to see what he will come up with next.Deepa Sahi too is a good change from the usual Hindi filmy style of acting. She dares to be different each time. Though people accused the film I hear of being anti nationalist, if you look closely it isn't at all. In fact it tries to say how some vested interests are hawking off the country!
