If you've not seen this, you've laughed less this year.
14 May 2007 | by singh-amritSee all my reviews

Bheja Fry is unlike any comedy film you must have seen in recent past. It has no big names in the cast, you might not have heard about the director either, promotion of the film is a low key affair... No loud comic drama, no banana slips to make you laugh, no double meaning dialogs. But still it easily qualifies for the most hilarious film of the year. It is 100 odd minutes of pure humor. The film surprises you with the unique wit and classic comedy.

You might not be expecting anything from the film and might come out highly satisfied. That is the best thing about the film. This is probably the first time the comic potential of Vinay Pathak has been utilized fully. This is one actor with amazing comic timing. The characters of the film are highly believable and you can actually recall at least one person you know/have met which is similar to each character in the film.

The film boasts of great acting,great situations and a very simple script. Though its an adaptation of a french film, it hardly takes the credit away from any of the actors.

Watch it for sure, because if you've not seen this, you've laughed less this year.
