Storyline

Vir is a bachelor from a small town working as a sous-chef in a five-star hotel in Mumbai. A handsome, charming, macho idiot who flirts with, yearns for and lusts after any woman who is friendly but seems unattainable. From his man-hating maid, whom he ogles as she wipes his floor, to the man-eating call center owner who could wipe the floor with him...from the too-tall model to the too-young pretty pest down the corridor...from the Bengali-Beauty-with-Brains-and-Books to the born-flirt next door - Vir is suckered by them all. Ego, Confusion, Commitment...it's so difficult to stop flattering and lying - to himself! The sometimes smart and sometimes silly observations of his all-male gang of cooks at the hotel kitchen is of little help until... Vir, an especially overconfident (and thus entertaining) specimen of the male species, is forced to grow up. Written by SB

Only lust can be pure, love has many complications
12 October 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Lets be honest here and for once give the due credit to the multiplex culture. Certainly it has paved way to the young and fresh aspiring blood a new career choice - film making. The results are mixed bag yet, but we have seen a few fresh ideas brimming. "Love Khichdi" is the latest offing. The attempt is honest, sincere and praise-worthy. It excels in every department - script, screenplay, editing, background score, songs, performances and above all direction.

Θ Randeep Hooda:: The generation next personified (roughly translated as "predominantly non-committal to a relationship and fairer sex reduced to tools for carnal gratification"). Randeep manages to progress the character quite smoothly.

Θ Sada:: Its nice to see the "Vellu Vaiyya" girl attempting to carve a place in Bollywood. With the "next-door-girl" looks she has strong resemblance to Asin and here's to wishing similar success. As per the demands of the script I would have preferred an average looking girl for the role in question. Only a blind man can turn Nelson's eye to such a beauty. Or perhaps the director failed to mention that Randeep's Hooda character suffers from eye-condition.

Θ Rituparna Sengupta:: Well - she is a beauty in her own right. And maybe it was a deja vu that I saw it coming. But extremely good writing there.

Θ Divya Dutta:: She is as usual dependable and gets her accent/ mannerism of the housewife (read that as "aunty") quite right.

Θ Kalpana Pandit:: Manages to bring out the character as quite independent and upright. Her accent was quite believable actually.

Θ Riya Sen:: Instead of a known face, perhaps a new-comer could have added a punch in the role of Lollita.

Θ Sonali Kulkarni:: Now she is indeed icing on the cake in terms of performance. Clearly manages to overshadow the rest of the actresses alongside her.

Sanjay Mishra:: Had no scope in the character or maybe got edited.

Saurabh Shukla:: As a mentor, he gets to mouth lines loaded with wisdom and as usual his performance is dependable.

Finally about the director Srinivas Bhashyam - after "Paisa Vasool" I had written him off completely. But with "Love Khichdi" he is back with a bang showcasing his true potential. He manages to hit the bulls-eye and yes if he gets to play his cards right, he is indeed a new kid around the block with a gift

PS: My only problem is "Love Kichidi" bears a strong resemblance to "Pyar Ke Side Effects". Watch it and you will know why.
