Too silly yet too fun
23 July 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Despite being ridiculously stupid in its story and general concept, I somehow managed to go through most of the sequences of Sansar, one of many films made on families getting separated and then again, getting together. In this case, the story was unintentionally funny as it was very unbelievable to see a family dividing the house only because of one silly rift. For the most part, particularly throughout the second half, Sansar is one hell of a cliché and most of the dialogues are cheap and repetitive lines of old platitude. Yet, there was something enjoyable in this silliness. The film, though at some points made me laugh given its unjustified seriousness, at others it actually worked because one has to know that it is not to be taken seriously. Those who can understand it will enjoy it. The film's first part was much better. It was quite convincing in its depiction of changing times and social norms of those times, and I personally always enjoy watching films involving simple middle-class families and their struggles. It is of course not even close to the magnificent films made by Hrishikesh Mukherjeee for that genre, but it was nice enough. It is, as said, the second half which lets the film completely down, but anyway. Among the cast, everyone does well, including Anupam Kher, who plays the proud father yet again, and Rekha, who is the ultimate daughter in-law everyone would want to have. Raj Babbar was also very good. The music is forgettable, but who cares. Watch Sansar, don't take it seriously, and you may enjoy it quite a bit.
