Indian copy of Classic comedy "To be or not to be"
31 August 2008 | by ashi_pathSee all my reviews

Wow .... I have been a big fan of the classic comedy "To be or not to be" and was amazed to see that director Sanjay Chhel has done a great job in making this powerful Indian version. Based on the reviews given in most of the sites people might think it is a lame attempt to reinvent the Indian classic "Janne bhi do Yaaron" (except "Mirza ki laash" part which might look similar to the whole drama related to dead body in "JBDY"). But I personally think in order to fully understand and appreciate the 'laffs' one must totally forget about "JBDY" before watching this movie. And I must add I have never seen a more apt star casting for an Indian movie than this. Mallika Sherawat, Rahul Bose, Paresh Rawal have given their best performances. This has become one my favorite comedy movie and wish every director who wishes to copy a classical take a tip or two from Sanjay Chhel.
