The Fortune Cookie
15 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Basu Chatarjee perhaps this time did not find an original plot so he made "The Fortune Cookie" in Hindi.

In India Baseball is not popular so Basu Chatarjee replaced that with Hockey and instead of a Blak Male we have a Girl Hockey Player who first hits our hero and than takes care.

Farooq Shaikh plays the Photographer (Jack Lemmon). Sanjeev Kumar is his brother-in-law, a shyster lawyer, obviously with no mentionworthy case in his hands. Anit Raaj plays the wife - role of Judi West. For a change "Luther 'Boom Boom' Jackson" - Ron Rich is replaced by a female (she is also romantic lead - Madhavi). Role of Cliff Osmond - Purkey the private detective is played superbly by Utpal Dutt.

Movie is Indianised to a large extent and at end Farooq gets Madhavi. I enjoyed this movie (but frankly this was before I saw The "Fortune Cookie" that I enjoyed even more.
