Storyline

Police Inspector Ghote lives a middle-class life in Bombay along with his wife, Pratima. He has been employed with the Bombay Police for many years. His wife is generally disgruntled and wants a better life.

Inspector Ghote commences his investigation and is displeased when his superiors ask him to work with a Swedish Forensic Expert by the name of Axel Svennson. Axel is thrilled to get a closer look at the working of the Bombay Police, but also realizes that Ghote may not be one of their best police officers. When their friendship develops, he gets invited to Ghote's house, and gets to meet Pratima.

Get a good whodunit with a lot of laughs
18 February 2005 | by (Raytown, MO,USA) – See all my reviews

Expect a good mystery. The film explores the full spectrum of Bombay culture and scenic background. The locations and sets are delightful. The characters are well developed. The author of the book gets screen writing credit. Those who are introduced to Inspector Ghote by viewing this film, will probably become interested in checking out the full series of books. There is almost a laugh or chuckle a minute, i.e. chase sequences, pratfalls and sight gags. Cameo appearances by "animals" are a plus. This film belongs in the same category as the "Pink Panther" movies. There is a short run TV series starring Sammy Davis Jr. as "Inspector Ghote". Please email me if you have more info on that to share.
