Storyline

Delhi-based math teacher Santosh Duggal drives a scooter and lives in a small apartment along with his wife, Kusum; a collegian daughter, Payal; and a school-going son, Sandeep. He also moonlights with a tutoring center called Chatwal Coaching Class in order to make ends meet. Hoping to pacify his family with his income-tax refund, he will instead be compelled to give up its entire amount after his Meerut-based sister Urmi invites them over to a wedding. He borrows a car from a neighbor, Farooqui, and, after a rather dramatic trip, is forced to compensate him as the car gets damaged. Unable to bear taunts that he cannot afford a car, he decides to buy one. It is this decision that will force Payal to seek employment in a call center. Sandeep will confess that he has been gambling, which leaves Santosh with no alternative but to consider accepting bribes from students and risk being exposed on live TV.

The real taste of Delhi.. funny and quite authentic
14 October 2010 | by (us) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. The storyline is funny, the acting is good and the best part is the movie is not too out there. My biggest pet peeve with most bollywood movies is that everything is too loud and exaggerated.. This thankfully isn't one of those movies.

The story is about a middle-class teacher and nothing is out of the ordinary. No glamorous daughter who hangs out in pubs all night, no over-dramatic wife, no weird spoilt filmy children. As a matter of fact, the attention to detail with which the director has shown a middle class family is just too darn amazing.. There are so many little things you can notice about your average everyday middle-class family that not only make you wonder the amount of effort that was put into researching, but which also make the movie genuinely funny and likable! Like I particularly liked the scene where Rishi kapoor adjusts the wires of his nightlamp to make it work (presumably as it was without a plug), or how neetu singh is washing the verandah in slippers and socks.. such little things! The acting is also very good.. rishi kapoor makes it look effortless.. neetu singh does a convincing role of your everyday housewife.. the kids even though in college thankfully aren't also prancing around singing songs in college either... If you need to see the real Delhi this is the movie you should watch.. really good clean fun!
