Excellent movie in the 'fantasy' genre
31 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good photography and story. Some of the jokes may be inaccessible to those unfamiliar with the culture. But overall a great movie.

Godbole is typical man facing a mid life crisis when he gets a mysterious phone call from a Mr. Jaduwala "Are you bored with your life ? Has life become a burden and lost all charm ? Contact Jaduwala" The name Jaduwala literally means a magician. Jaduwala keeps a book store where you can take a break from your humdrum life with a book. You take the book and go sit in a cupboard and magic happens - you enter the story ..

Godbole is ambitious at first and chooses the 'Bajirao Mastani' story book. He gets near the beautiful Mastani but Bajirao arrives on the scene and Godbole gets the boot and tumbles out of the cupboard. The next time he is more cautious and chooses 'Shakuntal' because the heroine Shakuntala is alone for most of the story .. The bliss is short lived and after some humorous twists and turns Godbole returns to his mundane life. Just as he prepares to settle back in his life his wife gets a mysterious phone call - "Are you bored with your life ? Has life become a burden and lost all charm ? Contact Jaduwala"
