Total Bheja Fry ..

There are comedies that make you smile and then there are ones that make you laugh. I had thought that the golden era of the second sort had come to an end with Govinda not doing any more * no. 1 type movies .. but then I had no idea that Vinay Pathak could be such a wonderfully idiotically funny actor to turn a ok-ish theme and otherwise-boring actors to be ingredients of a laughter-fest.
Everything about Bheja fry is comic starting from the situational humour, to the funny dialogue delivery at times, to the tickling characters. Acting wise, Vinay Pathak is Sublime .. Rajat Kapoor chips in with a creditible performance .. Sarika looks more and more like the ageless beauty that she is, with every movie I see her in. If you are really looking to find a grey spot, and I mean really really looking to find one , then I guess you can say that Milind Soman was a bad choice for the character he played. I read somewhere that he acted like plastic, I personally felt that a puppet could have probably done a little more justice to the character. He did over-act with his hands , but sincerely by his standards it was good acting. I have seen him in other movies and he is a total goner at acting. He might have the looks, but definitely lacks the talent to make it to the critic’s list for best actors. I assume he was added to the movie to add to the glamour quotient, which was hardly needed. Bhairavi Goswami was also a not-well-auditioned character. She acted worse than Milind Soman but ,thankfully, she had too little screen presence to spoil the fun for the audience. She is quite the eye candy, but definitely not acting material.
But, Vinay Pathak covers it all up. He is quite the heart and soul of the movie. Rajat Kapoor did his frustrated bit VERY well and everyone else just keeps adding to the fun in the movie.
My rating -> 4 out of 5 (can’t give 5 out of 5, Milind Soman had to cost smthg to the movie rating )
Fav scenes -> can’t pick any , everything is awesome or marginally below that. The Amazing screenplay makes it pleasantly difficult to pick favourites.
Fav Lines -> How does one choose favourites in a movie that is based on situational humour. All the lines are more like you have to be there to experience the fun in the line.
My advice -> Do watch the movie, if you haven’t. And If you have, lets go watch it again. I am game for it anyday.
