absolutely hilarious!
15 March 2006 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

this is a great, forgotten gem starring a young Shekar Suman, who only got fame in the mid-90s as host of TV show 'Movers & Shakers'. he's the horny yet nerdy city goof who is on his way to marry his betrothed (Padmini K) back in the village where both their families live. he wants to try fooling around with her, but she's too much of a tomboy and seemingly devoid of any sexual desire. this may seem like a sleazy scenario and a crude subject matter, but it's dealt with a terrific sense of humor that arises from situations which are achingly real, unlike the forced 'comic' routines that you see in Bollywood films most of the time. the scenes in the bookshop and the shop where he goes to buy condoms, are classic.

if you ever get the chance, do go for this film. unfortunately, it's not on DVD, which is a shame because it deserves to be seen by more people. i was lucky to catch this on 'Z Cinema'. i must find a copy! my rating: 8/10
