Storyline

Narrated through the two wise kids of the hilariously madcap Parekh family, namely Jacky and Chakki. Khichdi - The movie is about a hare brained dream of a snail brained bunch of lovable losers. Hansa's brother Himanshu has born a ridiculous ambition that is to have a memorable legendary love story. It's all together another matter that he is not in love with anyone and neither is he capable of getting any sensible girl smitten to him. But as Babuji over wisely says that for every idiotic Praful there is an even more idiotic Hansa made, his prophecy turns out to be true. Parminder, Himanshu's neighbor falls in love with Himanshu for no logical reason and the 2 get engaged to get married. That's when this ridiculous story line takes a ridiculous turn. Himanshu realizes on the eve of the wedding that the impending ceremony would mean impending doom to his desire to have a legendary love story. For nothing interesting ever happened in his love story to make it memorable. It was a simple ... Written by Anonymous

A shining comedy that celebrates its madness; hilarious is an understatement.
25 February 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Aatish Kapadia's Khichdi: The Movie is based on the popular TV series directed by Kapadia himself. I have not seen the series, but the movie is fantastic. Centring around the crazy Parekh family, it is one of the maddest and funniest Indian films I've seen in recent years. It is terribly mad, but it is terribly entertaining. It is mindless, senseless, brainless, over-the-top, insane and ludicrous, but it's just one movie that hooks the audience from the very first moment and for two hours keeps them laughing non-stop. The viewers do not have to think too much but they will certainly find themselves rolling on the floor on numerous occasions. Well, that's at least what happened to me. One thing is sure: Khichdi is silly, but it actually celebrates its silliness and thus manages to create one truly unforgettable laugh riot.

Aatish Kapadia both writes and directs this feature, and he does a good job of it. The movie is also very well cast, with every actor understanding the film's outrageously comic mood and acting accordingly. Supriya Pathak leads the film as the dumb Hansa with a terrific performance that is downright hilarious. Her screen presence is the strongest in the film; when she's on-screen, no one else exists, when she is not, you badly want her to reappear. Rajeev Mehta, Nimisha Vakharia, Jamnadas Majethia and Anang Desai play their roles excellently. What I liked about the film is the fact that it is not an unintentional comedy, it's a well-scripted picture which knows how it wants to work. To sum it up, Khichdi is an outstanding no-brainer and for me it is also quite addictive. I already want to watch it again.
