A real Tasty Bheja Fry !!!!
24 April 2007 | by (LA, US) – See all my reviews

Beginning with, I must say this movie, knit around few characters is a real winner in its own sense. No big casting, few characters and all these characters were a perfect match. The real show stealer was Vinay Pathak in the role of Bharat Bhushan. With the flavor of foolishness and innocence he cruised well along the movie, and this foolishness also brings along a hilarious range of events which is pretty enjoyable. Also Ranvir Shorey in his small role was impressive. Also the length of the movie is nearly 90 minutes which makes sure u are gripped through the entire movie. I would recommend to watch this movie with keeping your working brains aside and just NJOI !!!
