What a piece of Crap!!!!
17 July 2016 | by (UAE) – See all my reviews

A piece of crap...thats what Brahman Naman is. To make things clear i m not a Brahman so pls do not judge me. But i understand making a comedy on say any other religion wud be inviting trouble...so good old Hindus to the rescue again. The man (Q) is so damn scared that the one Muslim character he introduced (train girl) remained in a headscarf even though her hindu GF's immediately dived in to shorts!!! cumon man get some BALLS. Except for the fan sequence nothing tickled my funny bone. If i wanted to listen to Shakespeare i wud have seen a play or attended some book reading by naseeruddin shah. I guess "Q" wants to show us how smart he is by quoting Shakespeare. No buddy..."no comprendo" :).... films can be entertaining or educative OR both....alas brahman naman is only what most films are these days....CRAPPPPPP
