Gandigiri Bollywood Movie Review

“Gandigiri” features main characters who are  a couple in love, Yuvraj (played by Rishi Bhutani) and Disha (played by Dolly Chawla), and Bansi (Brijesh Karniwal) who is a scheming thief, and then their ring leader Bakait Singh (played by Sanjay Mishra).

Our thief is very goofy and definitely always has eyes for the ladies. Which, on many occasions gets him into a lot of trouble with their husbands.

It even includes, a fantastic guru. If only he is posing to be a guru and spiritual guide and isn’t that great either.

The band of criminals even includes a wise in his own eyes, know it all sidekick.

It really shows thieves that don’t know what they are doing and their haphazard situations they find themselves in.

Our film follows four criminals, who find themselves in jail as they attempt to rob a government car. But as luck has it, the car they rob owner is a Gandhigiri.

Gandigiri Bollywood Movie Review

The term “Gandhigiri” in India shows forth the values of course of Gandhism. Which are the ideals of Mohandas Gandhi. “Gandhigiri” the namesake came into being after the 2006 Hindi Film “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” came out.

As a result of his lifestyle, Puri (played by the veteran actor Rai Saheb) of peace, truth, unity, and of course non-violence.  Our Puri, even puts up the cash to get them out of jail. He enlightens and shows them a greater path of life instead of their current path of poor choices. He takes them under his wing even though they are just trying to put one over on him.

He really strives to change the world in his leadership position. Which is what any true leader should do.

Personally, Rai Saheb himself emphatically believes in the principles of Gandhi. His family even have close ties to being freedom fighters. Puri’s character ( Rai Saheb) crosses paths with four individuals. Who have made wrong decisions due to situations in their lives.  This movie attempts to address the great efforts made by our vetern actor. Rai Saheb and Puri strive to show them and make them aware of Gandiji mantra and purpose in today’s world.

While all this is going on there is chaos in their town with inept government agents and showing how cast-based political affairs have taken over.

I don’t believe it properly showcases the value of the teachings for today but it attempts to humor in the midst to do so.

It really begs in some level for the viewer to examine themselves to see if Gandhiji’s values can operate in todays out of control world.  Underlying, it ask these questions to see how they can lead a life of unity and peace in their daily walk of life.

This film was shot in Lucknow with a very long schedule. It also was shot in the provinces of Uttar Pradesh.

Saat Uchakkey Bollywood Movie Review

Our film, “Saat Uchakkey” is set in the tangible, realistic, streets of Old Delhi.

A goofy comedy that, follows a group of trifling cooks who are working together to discover a lost golden treasure buried in Delhi. The thieving band, even locates the long lost treasure but they suddenly have a change of heart.  Their escapades are shroud in mystery, greed, and stumbling into crisis that foils their treasure hunting plans.

Unfortunately, this film has a lot of cuss words in it which in any good film really isn’t necessary to tell the story. It also has a lot of sexually crude comments, which are again not needed to tell a good story.

Saat Uchakkey’s” original release was for 2012 or 2013.  But, it was protested and challenged by India’s censors due to the amount of profanity throughout the film.

Saat Uchakkey Bollywood Movie Review

 

Our main characters in this group of thieves include: Pappi, Jaggi, Bichchi, and Haggu.

Pappi Jaatwala is played by Manoj Bajpayee is the mastermind of this heist.

With the opening scenes, set in a mental hospital as a doctor is enthralled by the baddest inmate (Bichchi played by Annu Kapoor) and his possible supernatural abilities. He manages to get out of the institution and then get his boys to start planning the treasure robbing.

His band of robbers include: Pappi’s girlfriend Sona (played by Aditi Sharma), Jaggi (played by Vijay Raaz), Haggu (played by Nitin Bhasin), Khappe (played by Aparshakti Khurana), Babbe Tashni (played by Jatin Sarna), and Phodu (played by Vipul Vig).

The group is found out and pursued by local cop Tejpal (played by Kay Kay Menon). Tejpal may have other motives in pursuing this group as he has eyes for Sona.

Our burglars get into the mansion, and even locate the treasure. But in the midst of the getaway Bichchi with his magical powers comes in the form of a god. He shows them the real error of their ways and in the end they make the right and honorable choice.

Tejpal in his heroic nature goes back to the police station, saving the day and hands over the discovered treasure. There is even a wedding that happens.

Though, very funny in their own right Vijay Raaz and Kay Kay Menon bring their own brand of humor to brighten up the film.

Anupam has a cameo in this movie. Bajpayee’s character is a mean, woman demeaning one with how he talks with her and his violence towards her.

So, everyone really has a happy ending. Wrongs are made right. Love is found, all showcased in a comical way.

However, this film doesn’t really have much of a strong storyline or vision at all. It seems to be just a generic script. However, if you like goofy, raunchy comedies this would be one to check out.
