So much wrong with this one
26 December 2017 | by nitint-64589See all my reviews

This one could have been funny if it were not so sad. Did the producers really think they can get away with this?

Here is the key problem with this one. Other than Russell Peters and Anupam kher, every other actor playing Indian, is a non indian actor, and is speaking hindi as well as english in a fake accent.

Apparently, having brown skin was the only criteria to cast actors playing Indians. They speak Hindi in their native western/south african accents. They speak english in a caricatured indian accent..

Non Hindi speakers might find it ok but any native Hindi speaker watching this will find it very difficult too hold down their food.
