Incredibly Funny
8 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One the most underrated movies of Bollywood Aamdhani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya is a comedy with a social message.I know it was a tad too old fashioned,slapstick and the acting shaky at times.But overall it is a very entertaining film. Superb comic timing by Johnny Lever,Govinda and Vijay Anand.Ketki Dave also steals the show playing the wife of Johnny Lever.Some of the scenes of this are the most funniest ever specially the scene in which the three protagonists jump in the well to escape the lady police and the scene in which Vijay's and johnny's character gives bath to their kids.Recommended for all those who like casual comedy movies!.
