Khichdi Movie review
Cast: Supriya Pathak, Anang Desai, Rajeev Mehta, Jamnadas Majethia, Nimisha Vakharia, Kirti Kulhari; Director: Aatish Kapadia; Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
Just as the television sitcom Khichdi tickled your funny bone every week, so does the silver-screen version chronicling the hilarious saga of the whacky bunch that is the Parekh family.
Though the film does not boast of a strong storyline, it does not fail to amuse you at any point.
The harebrained Praful gadhe’s idiotic wisecracks coupled with his wife Hansa’s even more inane musings, Jayashree’s shrewd ideas, Babuji’s anguished grunts and groans, and Himanshu’s naiveté are so endearing and entertaining that you break into bouts of laughter throughout the film.
At some points, you do feel that some sequences are over the top, but that does not harm the purpose of the film, which is to make you crack up.
