Several reviewers consider this film to be very similar to Waking Ned Devine (1998). Both films are set in a small remote village, involve a man winning the lottery and dying of shock with the winning ticket clutched in his hand, two people conspire to take the winnings, the conspiracy expands to involve the whole village, and a single villager attempts to reveal the conspiracy but dies in a car accident. However director Priyadarshan claims it is "totally and absolutely original". See more »
Let's admit it, Bollywood can't really pull off a comedy - not since Andaaz Apna Apna have we seen a decent comedy make it to the silver screen. I'm sick of all these talentless newbies coming into the industry and appearing in "comedies" that are nothing but annoying screaming and complete idiocy.
This movie though made me laugh right through. The chemistry between the main characters was fantastic and the acting was superb by the 3 main old dudes. Asrani was also FANTASTIC! The jokes, the reactions, etc were perfectly delivered. The story, although predictable, was a refreshing change and it never felt over cooked and the jokes stayed true to the story line.
Good light hearted film!
