This is a copy of a 1998 French film .
22 October 2007 | by (Moscow, Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Bheja fry even though a good movie ... is sadly ,copied "inspired" from the 1998 French movie Dîner de cons, Le (1998). Also known as "The Dinner Game" (English title).

Many scenes are exact copy "inspiration" of the French version. The difference being that the French counterpart is an artist who has a great talent of making structures using matchsticks , while as the Indian one is a no good singer, in the French version the customs officer loves football , and the Indian , Cricket. apart from these "regional" details the movie is a complete copy of the already highly acclaimed French movie . The directors and producers keep the Indian public in dark by making them think how well the story line is and what a wonderful "indigenous" movie have they made. It would have been much respectful , it they would have mentioned at least in the credits that this movie was " inspired " from the play and movie written by Francis Veber.

Anyways its good to see at least they are aiming their "inspirations " not just at Hollywood movies , but also to the other foreign language movies too . Its a treat to know how well do they copy the real one but anyhow the Movie is a treat to watch and really a must watch movie , the actors and the movie staff have done their job really well. So go ahead n watch the movie .


for more info search IMDb for " The dinner Game " or go to and the trailer at
