Goofs

When Vaman & Monisha show Gangoobai her new room, the scenery is not possible to be because the peaks shown in it are totally isolated and there is no bungalow/building around in actual. The peaks are surrounded by the Matheran toy-train tracks. See more »

Incredible Sarita Joshi
10 January 2014 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

Gangoobai works so well because of the incredible performance of Sarita Joshi. The film makers scoured a coup in casting her as the film's chief protagonist, for she is in every frame and carries it all on her deceptively frail looking shoulders. The other characters are caricatures, from the gay designer and bitch starlet to the brat business heir and the low self esteem model. But when connected to Gangoobai, they all come alive in such a way as to evoke sympathy. Gangoobai was screened by the Godrej Culture Lab at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai as part of World Parsi Congress, mainly because the story revolves around Gangoobai's grand obsession of buying herself a Parsi 'gara' sari. I do hope it's eventually screened on TV because it is a very engaging, very entertaining film and a wider audience deserves to see it.
