Storyline

K.K. Khosla (Anupam Kher) is a middle class man living in New Delhi. He is a simple man with simple tastes. The plot starts with a scene where Khosla dreams about his death. The irony is that nobody cares about his death; instead his children & neighbours are more interested in their materialistic needs. One early morning in Delhi, Khosla wakes up and plans to go to the site where he has purchased a plot to build his house. He is accompanied by his wife, eldest son Bunty (Ranvir Shorey), second son Chironji Lal Khosla (Parvin Dabas), and his daughter. When they reach the spot they find that the site has been occupied by someone else and on further investigation find that it has been captured by a property usurping nexus headed by a man named Kishan Khurana (Boman Irani). Khurana demands Rs. 15 lakhs to vacate the plot, which Khosla refuses to give. Bunty gathers few local strongmen and forcefully destroys the walls and re-occupies the plot. But Khurana has the police on his side and ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Bollywood at its BEST!!
10 October 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

After Lageraho Munnabhai...Bollywood could not have got any better than...THIS. All along these years, we've been watching films that crawl without any story or soul...only effort going into them being a good make up in terms of ostentatious song and dance routines only to make it more sale-able. and all these years, even I've been watching all this. Appreciating some...sulking at others, craving for the movies as they were in times of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Sai Paranjape. Khosla Ka Ghosla comes straight out of that genre and sweeps you like gust of fresh air. Since most of you must be knowing the story, and for those who don't, they must be going and watching this at all cost, Khosla Ka Ghosla is one of the finest examples of storytelling in recent times. Every character is sketched out so immaculately that for even a second you can't say that you don't know this person in real life.

An absolutely brilliant background score makes this movie a thorough joyride with the highs and troughs dealt with extreme intelligence.

As for the performances, we know what Anupam Kher is capable of and Boman Irani is definitely a class apart. Navin Nischol, in spite of his personal troubles, makes a very impressive comeback. Kiron Juneja is very good. Parvin Dabas and Tara Sharma give perfectly restrained and energetic performances respectively.

But the one who takes the cake away for my money is the support cast lead by Ranvir Shorey... Every time he opens his mouth, he leaves you in splits....and mind you...no slapstick there...everything very common...very everyday like... but brilliantly delivered. His chemistry with Vibnay Pathak in The Great Indian Comedy Show seems to have rubbed off onto KKG too and both give absolutely mesmerizing performances along with the rest of the cast.

Every scene, every dialog...gives you a great sense of happiness...which you might not identify then and there itself in the theater, as in the case of Lageraho Munnabhai, but you'll definitely ponder over it and a smile will cross your face even after you've come out of the theater and it will stay with you for a long long time.

Brilliant piece of Cinema...Go watch it!!!!

Nine and a half on Ten!!!
