Storyline

Hudda is a Mumbai-based gangster who undertakes to kill people with the help of a male simply known as the Professor, who is in the habit of buying lottery tickets. Both the Professor and Hudda will find their lives changing when the nephew of a gangster gets killed, and they must find an undertaker who is able to put his mutilated face together. They do find one in A. Salvi, who reluctantly undertakes to do this job for a large fee. Then the Professor, who borrows books on 'Sex' from the Central Library, will be thrilled when he finds out that he is the winner of a Rs.2 Crore lottery. Before he could even claim the prize, he will find his car has been stolen, and the lottery ticket, which he had inserted in one of the 'Sex' books, is missing. Amidst hilarious chaos and encounters with assorted characters, the Professor attempts to first locate his car and then the missing lottery ticket. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fantastic!!!

Urf Professor is doubtlessly one of the best dark comedies of Indian cinema, and it not getting released is one of the greatest tragedies of Indian Cinema!! Seriously, it is a classic!! It is excellent in all aspects, what a film!! And it is a brave attempt from the crew, since in early 2000s, such black comedies were not much frequent in bollywood. Now we got Sankat City, The Film Emotional Atyachar, Darwaza Bandh Rakho etc etc, but Urf Professor is the baap of all black comedies!! I read one article about this movie, in which the author compared it with Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron. Well, personally I like Urf Professor more than Jaane Bhi… Urf Professor doesn't have any stars in the cast. Of course it has Sharman Joshi, and Antara Mali, but neither of them were stars during this movie. I think this is Mr. Joshi's first movie. It also has Manoj Pahwa and Yashpal Sharma, whom I think were not so popular that time. It also have Kurush Deboo, Hemant Pandey, Devang Patel, Shri Vallabh Vyas, etc, all are excellent. The title role is brilliantly handled by Manoj Pahwa, and this is surely his career best. Fantastic performance!! He is a great actor!! Among the other cast, everybody was excellent to their roles. Special mention to shri vallabh vyas for an awesome performance!! Pankaj Advani has done a wonderful job as the director of the movie. He is no more now, so sad that we won't get any more movies from him.. :( There are several superb scenes in the movie, in fact all scenes are fantastic only!! The movie has many dialogues which the Indian censor board will never approve, and I think it may be the reason why the movie never got released. Anyway, the movie never bores the audience, it is appropriately paced, and this is really a funny and entertaining ride. Go have it!! It is available online now, just google it, and enjoy!! Guaranteed quality fun!!
