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)

Though it is a word to word copy of the British movie "Death at a Funernal", I must say it is a good copy !!! Unlike many Bollywood films that are inspired from other films, this movie actually keeps the audience entertained. I totally enjoyed this movie. Prem Chopra was awesome as an irritating short tempered Uncle Murphy. Surprisingly Aftab Shivdasani did justice to his part. Javed Jaffery as always kept me entertained with his antics. Aarti Chhabria, Kim Sharma, Tulip Joshi were given short roles which they performed well. Sophiya Chaudhury was eye candy with her comic timing and appeal. I am surprised that in IMDb the cast for this movie does not have Chunky Pandey in it. Along with Jaffery, Chunhky Pandey's comic timing was great. The entry of Rajpal Yadav was yet another spice added to the comedy angle of the movie. In total, it is a good enjoyable comedy, much better than many comedy movies that try to poke the audience to make them laugh. Grab a bag of popcorn and watch it with you friends...!!!
