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 »
At first i have to say that i have never laughed so much in my entire life in cinema...and i have watched and am a fan off all sorts off comedy from Tom and Jerry to Russell Peters Stand Up Comedy (Comedy Central) to the Ace Ventura (Carrey)....but i believe Indian Cinema has never had another Director as brilliant as Priyadarshan to make u go nuts......The Comedy in his movies never stops....one funny bone after another the story keeps hitting all the parts of our body that can laugh....
And Secondly,Indian cinema has found its own pair of Comedy Geniuses...Paresh Rawal and Om Puri....the new Rawal-n-Puri duo has given such a commendable comic performance that i believe will give any comedian in World Cinema a run for his money....the pure Innocence of the Village-People of India is portrayed beyond perfection by the Duo...
And Thirdly,I do wish (as an avid fan of Good authentic Indian Cinema that has no pastures and Trees with Chipmunks running around them with a back ground filled with "music" from the Wedding Planners in Heaven !!!!)that the Rawal-Puri duo get all the right awards and commendations for their respective roles....which i have a sinking feeling will go to charismatic "HEROES" off the so-called "Bollywood"......
And,at last but not the least....Kudos to all the Cast of this rib-tickling comic havoc....Keep up the brilliance people...heres awaiting more...
