Omi Khurana's London dream has just ended. On the run from a dangerous UK gangster who he owes money to, Omi returns to his native village in Punjab, pretending to be a well-heeled London lawyer. Much has changed since Omi ran away from home a decade back after stealing money from his doting grandfather, Darji. The old man has since become senile and most importantly, forgotten the secret recipe of "Chicken Khurana" a dish that made the Khurana dhaba (restaurant) famous across Punjab. Omi's childhood sweetheart, Harman is soon to be married to his cousin, Jeet, though neither seems too happy about it. Adding to the quirkiness of the Khurana family is a free loader uncle, Titu, who once did a stint at a mental asylum. Will Omi be able to cover his deceit and lies for long, even as he tries to recover the lost recipe of Chicken Khurana - the family's only hope to reclaim their pride & wealth.Written by
Luv (Love) the Watch Shuv (Shove) the Justifications
The movie has characters which are so accurate and genuine but then the plot has a hint of fiction in it. Had it been set on a non fictitious platform the movie could have pulled out brilliantly. Soundtracks give a good touch to the movie as it is quite slow paced and we do need something to move along. The script again could have done much more had it been tidied up a bit. Thematically its quite accurate as well with the locations. Just the fiction part ruined the perfection of the movie. The acting is good, Kunal Kapoor needs to drop the slow model walk that he does else its fine, Huma Qureshi justifies her role as a Punjaban and has done a good job, Titu mama (Rajesh Sharma) is outstanding, rest of the characters are also good. The comic punches are original, the script is refreshing compared to the run-of-the-mill fast paced comedy drama's. Watch it but don't justify it and you will surely love the Chicken Khurana that stews in the plot.
