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

Spicy Khichdee That Makes You LOL.
20 February 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

How refreshing to see a Hindi movie based on an Indian TV-series. I'm not very familiar with Indian TV-series as most of the things I had witnessed on Indian channels were those abysmal soap-operas. Unfortunately, I had not seen the series on which this movie was based. But, after seeing 'Khichdi: The Movie', I wouldn't mind trying it out.

I decided to see the film after catching the trailer. Aatish Kapadia does a fine writing job. Even though there are a few jokes that have been overdone in the past, there are plenty of original and clever ones that make you laugh out loud. The pacing sometimes slackens but it quickly picks up once you notice that it's going a little slow. The story pokes fun at several traditional Bollywood films that went on to become blockbusters but it's more of a homage than a mockery.

But the highlight of 'Khichdi: The Movie' are the Parekhs. They are one of the funniest families I've seen in an Indian movie and they provide some excellent laugh-out-loud moments. Anang Desai, Rajeev Mehta, Nimisha Vakharia and especially Supriya Pathak and Jamnadas Majethia are a laugh riot. The supporting cast contribute well. Even Farah Khan makes a funny appearance as herself.

It's good to see a refreshing Indian comedy film that could actually make you laugh out loud which has become quite rare in today's Hindi cinema. I would like to get a hold of the TV series.
