Storyline

Rishi, the son of legendary Raj Kapoor, decides to try his hand at politics, and to garner support, re-locates to his birth village, Hadbahedi. The village is located in an isolated area where most trains do not stop, and electricity is only available for about 6 hours a day. He also decides to shoot a film 'Khooni Khazana' with Producer/Director, Malkani. Once there, he secretly makes a deal to lend his name to an alcoholic beverage, in exchange for a plot of land in nearby Triphala, and one Crore Rupees, while pledging to the naive villagers that he has no intention to re-locating anywhere. Misled villagers believe Hadbahedi will get popular and modernized, and decide to assist him with all their might. Things escalate into chaos, and anger, when they find out that their valuables are being stolen, and the women being molested, by the film crew, while the police accuse them of harboring a terrorist who was responsible for the December 13, 2001, attack on the Indian Parliament.

Chintu Ji is a fun watch !
3 September 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If one has liked the books like Raag Darbari and has liked films like Jaane bhee do yaron and Welcome to Sajjanpur then Chintu ji is a film to be watched. Chintu ji is a simple tale about a Utopian small city and is shown without using any kind of gimmicks. It is shown in a simple manner. Like Raag Darbari and Welcome to Sajjanpur it is also a social satire and there is a full dose of situational comedy. Dialogues are crispy. Music is good and especially a song Akira Kurosawa...Cappola may titillate the funny bone in the audience. At the time when comedy films are turning fast into sex comedies, this small budget film brings a neat entertainment to the audience. Plot is original and except few weak things which could be improved, Chintu ji is a nice watch. Film is dependent completely on the shoulders of Rishi Kapoor and he has done his job successfully. It is good to see that Rishi Kapoor has got such a role and he has done full justice to the role. In fact most of the actors have played their roles very well. Saurabh Shukla, Annu Kapoor, Grusha Kapoor, Priyanshu Chaterjee, Kulraj Randhawa and many other actors have done well. Sophie Chaudhary was used effectively for a song. Some audience may like the references to an old film of Raj Kapoor and may like to see a Russian actress again after so many years in Chintu ji. Film could have been better if last 20-25 minutes were improved more. To watch with family it is a good entertaining film. This is a debut film of the renowned theatre director Ranjit Kapoor and that way it is a good attempt. Hope he delivers many good films in future.
