DURATION: 2 hours 16 minutes
CRITIC’S RATING: 2.5/5
STORY: A supposed situational comedy, the film revolves around Kumar Shiv Ram Kishan (Sharma), a wealthy man, who is married to three different women – Simran (Simran Kaur Mundi), Juhi (Manjari Phadnis) and Anjali (Sai Lokur). But he isn’t a player. He is in fact a righteous guy, who changes his marital status in order to fulfill what he believes are his moral obligations.
Neither his wives nor his girlfriend Deepika (Elli Avram) are aware of each others’ existence untill fate brings them all together. Kumar’s lawyer cum sidekick (Varun Sharma, impressive) also plays the narrator. How he saves Kumar from being caught forms the story.
MOVIE REVIEW: When you watch a Kapil Sharma film with a straight face, you know there’s something wrong. Not that he doesn’t act well or anything. It’s just that his character isn’t funny enough as one would have expected. You wonder if the directors wanted to present him differently or he himself feared that his funny image might sabotage his chances as a mainstream Bollywood hero. Whatever the reaon, the decision to underplay his comic side (which happens to be his forte) and let drama and romance take center stage, doesn’t quite work.
Even the concept has been explored a billion times before. Be it No Entry, Garam Masala, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya or the Housefull series, they were way funnier and had a stronger star appeal. Sadly, even the scenes that manage to make you smile here, feature supporting actors, who seem funnier than Kapil.
