Storyline

Wealthy Goa-based Income Tax Officer Douglas Lazarus passes away after exercising on his treadmill at a speed of 10.5. A funeral is arranged, relatives are notified, and his eldest hen-pecked son, Steven, prepares a farewell speech while most attendees would have preferred the second son, Brian, a successful Mumbai-based writer, to do so. At the funeral, things hilariously spiral out of control when Michael, the fiancé of Douglas' gorgeous niece, Maria, notices movement within the coffin. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Good Comedy
13 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The title rang a bell and it made me remember one of those disco songs by the group Boney M and indeed the title is just that. But having not had much chance to watch the promos of this movie, it was something that I had not expected but having seen that who the producers gave me a small clue as to what it would be like. A father passes away and his eldest son arranges for the funeral and invites close family members and family friends. But one person is unknown to all and all hell breaks loose when this person says something that no one had expected, not even the family members of the deceased.

Starring Sunil Shetty, Aarti Chhabria, Chunky Pandey, Ashish Choudhary, Prem Chopra, Tulip Joshi, Kim Sharma, Rajpal Yadav, Aftab Shivdasani, Javed Jaffrey and Suhasini Mulay, Sharat Saxena, Javed Jaffrey and Sophiya Chaudhary. This is directed by K. Muralimohana Rao and produced by Indra Kumar and Ashok Thakeria.

What can go wrong at a funeral? Well the best person to ask is Sunil Shetty, as this role really suited him. He is not just an action hero and films such as "Hera Pheri" have proved that he is also good at comedy and this confirms this. All the actors are also good and that includes Chunky Pandey, Aftab Shivdasani, Javed Jaffrey and also Prem Chopra. Its good to see the old villain do a role such as this.

This is a good comedy genre movie and the story line ensures that the audience is not bored as there some hilarious moments in the film and will give one a good laugh. There are some scenes which some may find as inappropriate but nevertheless, they do not ruin the comedy.

A good comedy.
