Storyline

K.K. Khosla (Anupam Kher) is a middle class man living in New Delhi. He is a simple man with simple tastes. The plot starts with a scene where Khosla dreams about his death. The irony is that nobody cares about his death; instead his children & neighbours are more interested in their materialistic needs. One early morning in Delhi, Khosla wakes up and plans to go to the site where he has purchased a plot to build his house. He is accompanied by his wife, eldest son Bunty (Ranvir Shorey), second son Chironji Lal Khosla (Parvin Dabas), and his daughter. When they reach the spot they find that the site has been occupied by someone else and on further investigation find that it has been captured by a property usurping nexus headed by a man named Kishan Khurana (Boman Irani). Khurana demands Rs. 15 lakhs to vacate the plot, which Khosla refuses to give. Bunty gathers few local strongmen and forcefully destroys the walls and re-occupies the plot.

A slice-of-life comedy
28 September 2006 | by juggy_jugheadSee all my reviews

Khosla ka ghosla is a movie that gives you a bit of masala and a bit of realism all packed in a single movie. There is conventional Hindi movie stuff like background love angle, family ties, revenge, predator-become-prey .. and then there is Ram Gopal Varma type realism .. and what you get at hand is a hilarious movie with awesome performances from everyone.

The movie revolves around a typical middle-middle class family consisting of a housewife mother, a not-so-well-paid government employee father, a jobless big-on-plans elder son, a computer engineer working-in MNC younger son and a probably-student daughter. A family as muddled and comic as most of our families are.

The movie has awesome performances by two of the most versatile actors of the industry - Anupam Kher and Boman Irani, who lead the show. Equally good is Ranveer Shourey whose slightly haryanvi accent and matter-of-fact dialogue delivery sets him apart. Navin Nischol is a veteran who was a really good choice for the role. Tara Sharma is also quite well cast, though Koel Purie could have been a better choice.

The things that strike you in the movie are the typical characters, the sarcastic humor, the realism and the wonderful Delhi feel that is hard to miss. The actors are really well chosen and all the offices/homes etc. are also pretty typical of the characters. The characters themselves are typical of the kind of people you come across in real life, which adds humor to the whole story.

Overall, the movie is really good fun to watch.
