One of the better Hindi Movies!!
24 October 2006 | by freakyvipulSee all my reviews

Very original and well made with great acting,Khosla ka Ghosla is really one of the better bollywood movies made at low cost.

Boman Irani is just too good as a crooked property dealer,he delivers another masterpiece.

Ranvir Shorey comes good again after Pyar ke Side Effects.I have never seen such a good Vj turned actor. :)

Anupam Kher,Parvin Dabbas,Tara Sharma,Vinay Pathak,Navin Nischol all of them are very good in their roles.

The originality,simplicity of every character and script are strong points of the movie,and it struck right at time,when demolitions in Delhi are being carried out.
