Storyline

London-based owner of 'Gaylord Indian Restaurant' Pinu Patel travels to India along with his cousin, Rajat, Kavita Kaki and Jaisukh Kaka, in order to meet with Payal and get married. The couple seemingly approve of each other, but at the last minute she rejects him. Dejected he returns home and faces rejection once again - this time at the hands of Mili. Quite depressed, he is then compelled to hire two Chandigarh-based employees, Renu and Kamlesh, as Book-keeper and Cook respectively. Kamlesh and he start hanging out together to such an extent that Pinu is compelled to question himself as to if he is a homosexual. Anxious to prove himself, he must now hook up with a woman - and feels Renu to be ideal. His world comes crashing around him when he finds her in Kamlesh's arms - leaving open the question as to what his fate is going to be in the near future. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Ek Halki Phulki Comedy
5 June 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

At the outset I must confess that this movie is highly under-rated and so to speak deserves a little bit more of attention. Sad to see that it got lost in incognito.

Yes, its a romantic comedy made extremely well and can safely be watched once.

Performances::

* Vinay Pathak:: Seriously this guy needs no intros. He is just spot-on.

* Gul Panag:: For starters, your wardrobe needs a makeover big time. Her look was completely out of sync. Perhaps she got away looking gorgeous by the "mirror-mirror-on-the-wall" but it wasn't quite camera friendly! And apparently she is desperately attempting to break the "miss-goody- two-shoes" image with the choice of the characters she is undertaking.

* Anuj Chowdhary:: Now one can confidently say that he stands tall to a heavy-weight like Vinay Pathak. Very much likable character and Anuj manages to pulls off the role to the utmost perfection. Another Ranvir Shorey in making, perhaps yes!

* Siddharth Makkar:: Deserves brownie for this near-authentic look and accent. Indeed very good hard-work there.

* Others do their part as per the demands.

Going by the demands of the content, the movie is aptly based in London and the spirit is very well captured. Cinematography is of high standards and very much comparable to the likes of stalwarts viz. P C Sreeram/ Ravi Chandran.

The screenplay is written and executed extremely well ensuring it binds the viewers at all times.

The plot could have been completely linear. Jumping back and forth didn't seem quite right. Also the opening credits could have been more bland as opposed to the existing sci-fi touch.

Special mention is deserved for the director Parvati Balagopalan who handles the reigns quite efficiently.

Finally at the risk of being repetitive, should have been given more publicity - at the bare minimum it would fared better at the box-office in UK.
