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

Highly recommended!!
12 December 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Imagine yourself laughing uncontrollably watching a movie, almost blocking your breath, and when you reach a state that you can't hold it anymore, you may choke, and you 'pause' the movie for a while, relax, and 'resume' the movie again, just to laugh uncontrollably and choke again. If you want to experience this, watch 'Khichdi. It is a complete laugh riot, that the we feel that the words like 'LOL'(Laugh out Loud) and 'ROFL'(Rolling on Floor, Laughing) were made to describe this movie. It is truly a laughter ride, the Khichdi family makes you laugh like you had never been, before!!

Khichdi is a simple movie, without big stars. It is the film version of a TV series of the same name, and the same characters are retained in the movie. The movie is about Hansa, Praful, Himanshu, Jayshree, Babuji, and around 50 Parminders. The PJs of these people will make you die laughing, for around 110 minutes of your life!! Watch the movie, you will know.

I love PJs and jokes even more stupid than PJs, and I always wanted to be a good PJist, and was proud of my PJs. I also believed no one can beat my standard in PJs. But, after watching Khichdi I realised that I have to raise my PJ standards immediately. This movie goes to a level which is beyond your imagination. If you are a PJ lover, this is the real treat for you. I'm sure you will rate it a minimum of 8/10. It is obvious, because the makers have added so much of PJs in the movie.

We see comedy movies becoming great successes, with double meaning comedies. Often it is not so comfortable to watch such movies with our family. But this Khichdi is purely green, and you can watch it with your kids, parents, or even grandparents.

There is a cold war between the characters of the movie, to prove that who is more stupid. Hansa, Himanshu and Praful all the three of them behave so stupidly, that we can't make a conclusion on who is more stupid. Obviously, all of them are damn funny too. Supriya Pathak is in her extreme form, and is great in each and every scene. After a simple 'Maa' role in 'Wake Up Sid', she does a character with a completely new flavour, and she is extremely successful in this role. Rajeev Mehta is first rate as Praful. He is better than most of the comedians of bollywood, and his gestures and expressions are fantastic. Jamnadas Majethia is very good as Himanshu. He is also damn funny, and is excellent. Anang Desai and Nimisha Vakharia are good in their respective roles as Babuji and Jayshree. The new girl who played 'Parminder' was cute. The cameos by Farah Khan and Satish Shah were good.

There are many situations in the movie, which will make the entire house down. Few of them are:

1. The 'Akal ke Ladoo' scene 2. Funeral scene 3. The night scene in Chhedi Singh's house 4. The hospital scene 5. The entire court scene

On the whole, Khichdi is a complete entertainer, and is never to be missed if you like simple comedy movies. It is an opportunity to laugh continuously for almost 2 hours, and never miss this opportunity.
