Not what you expect from Ketan Mehta
1 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The director that made "Bhav Ni Bhavai", "Mirch Masala" or even "Mangal Panday" is not even close to being his best in "Aar ya Paar". It looks like a cheap and easy movie he was arm-twisted into making so he sleep-walked through it. Th story of "The Sucker Punch" has been made into a Gujarati Drama: Shrugal. Paresh Rawal who played the inspector in the movie actually played the crook husband in the Drama - a much more entertaining performance than Jackie Shroff. Ketan Mehta also once more used his then Girlfriend, now wife Deepa Sahi in the movie. She is not particularly talented and when she tries to be sexy, she becomes laughable. Ketan should have learned from V. Shantaram and Chetan Anand's disastrous pampering of their spouses/lovers. The other girl who plays Meena is not even able to read her lines convincingly.
