Storyline

A satire on inflation-hit middle-class Indian family from a small city in North India. The story revolves around our protagonist who is struggling to survive in this spiraling inflation and how he comes up with a solution to battle it, only to find himself in an even bigger mess due to their innocence and naivety. The story is laced with undertones of sociopolitical issues as well traditions that reflects struggle of the 'average' man, while entertaining that makes you laugh ( and cry) at yourself and the situations that one faces on a daily basis.

An obscure gem
20 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie is so small, most people don't know it exists. Yet, it deserves to be seen by more people because of its sheer brilliant satire and comedic flair.

Sanjay Mishra shines as the main protagonist with a great supporting cast. Anyone living in the Indian sub continent will easily identify with this film. The director has caught the essence of middle class citizens masterfully. The humor is subtle, not over the top which is rare in Indian cinemas. You will connect with the characters instantly.

Overall, I rate it 8/10. Go watch this one and you will have some food for thought, while having a good time.
