Storyline

Rajbir is sentenced to a year in jail for Assault while his friends, Sexy, Ambani and Doctor, are not charged. After his discharge he reports to their boss, Fauji, an ex-army officer, who, at one time was a bank security guard, was unsuccessful in looting it, ended up as a gangster, and now wants to be an MLA. Fauji is then hired by the personal assistant, Rawat, of the Chief Minister, Jaya Gulati, to disrupt the non-violent agitation led by Malik against the government's Land Acquisition legislation - that empowers it to acquire land at very low compensation from farmers and allot it to powerful and influential industrialists like Aggarwal - who has paid her a huge bribe.

They then decide to play a dangerous double-game, abduct Jaya's son, Hitu, and decide to hold him until ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

The Wrong People For The Right Job
15 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Parvin Dabas ventures as writer, director and actor in 'Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande'. The trailer gave me the impression that it's a dark comedy which it is to an extent. But it's also a social drama that stresses on the influence of capitalism on farmers, causing extreme distress as they are forced to give up their land and live in further poverty. Dabas's intention is sincere and for a debutant, 'Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande' is a good effort.

The toned down colour gives it a slightly earthly feel that stresses on the despair and hardship of the struggling farmers and the characters to find a solution to the problem. Humour is brilliantly used in the first half but lacking in the second where things get too intense (almost to the point of being melodramatic).

In the acting department, Parvin Dabas does an outstanding job. He shows a different side of himself as an actor by playing the guy with a rough edge, who had a troublesome past and is conflicted between doing the right thing and supporting his mentor. Vansh Bhardwaj, Ashish Nayyar and Kuldeep Ruhil provide fine support as Rajbir's friend. Sharat Saxena and Kiran Juneja are equally good. Producer Preeti Jhangiani (and wife of Parvin Dabas) does a cameo.

My quibble is with how the film is paced. It moves very slowly midway. I felt that some of the minor characters could have been done without.

Overall, 'Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande' is a fine effort and should Dabas choose to direct and write again, I'd be interested in what stories he chooses to tell.
