Storyline

Owning several aquariums, fish-loving Mumbai-based Guru makes a living stealing cars, getting them to his garage-owner friend, Ganpat Gajanan Jagirdar, and re-selling them through an associate, Sharafat. One day he steals a Mercedez and takes it to Ganpat. They inspect the car, find a bag containing Rs.1 Crore, decide to keep it and improve their lifestyles. Ganpat 'refurbishes' the vehicle, and Sharafat finds a buyer in Suleman, who quite unfortunately, recognizes it, and informs the owner, Fauzdaar - a ruthless gangster and money-lender. Guru is located, interrogated brutally, and agrees to return the cash which is still stashed in the garage. When he goes there - Ganpat, who had hidden the cash, has met with an accident, is gravely injured, and requires immediate hospitalization. While recuperating, the doctor finds that he has completely lost his memory. With rising fears of a meteor crashing in the city, a furious Fauzdaar gives Guru three days to find the cash and return it to ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Chain Of Sankats In The City
8 September 2009 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Pankaj Advani writes and directs an energetically amusing comedy about two con-artists, a film director, a kingpin, his driver, a religious guru and a builder among many more colourful characters. The only Indian comedy that I liked of 2009 is 'The President Is Coming'. Then after lacklustre films like 'Billu', 'Sankat City' felt fresh. The film moves at a very steady pace keeping the viewer hooked from start to finish. There is not one boring moment and plenty to laugh about. The story could have used more development but the comedy factor compensates for this flaw. The cast is very good. Kay Kay Menon excels in an out-and-out comedic role. This actor has shown that he is capable of playing any character. Rimi Sen is a big surprise. I have never been impressed by her acting in the past but here she is spot on and looks great too. Yashpal Sharma too springs a surprise in a non-villainous role while Anupam Kher is back in villain mode but this time with a touch of comedy. There are also numerous interesting references to other films which have been cleverly used in the dialogues written by Advani. 'Sankat City' is full throttle entertainment.
