Khosla Ka Ghosla, comes as another pleasant and welcome delivery from the Dibakar Banerjee . The name of the movie might indicate that we have a hardcore comedy flick at our hands, which might just have some funny, complicated and golmaal script, good enough to keep the audience gaping all through, rather than questioning the sensibility of the movie. But Khosla Ka Ghosla is not anything of that sort. The audience gapes, but this time to appreciate the content of the movie, apart from its comic feature.
The movie depicts the story of a very middle-class family, with a very orthodox patriarch, played by Anupam Kher (Khosla). Khoslaji’s sons, as one might imagine, are not at all like the father, they are some different entities, wanting to move on with their own lives, when possible. One son is through with the plan to go to USA, without even discussing it with his father, while the other is another real-life-reel-personification – he doesn’t know what he has to do!!! But how things change, and for the betterment of their relations, is what is showed so beautifully in the movie.
It’s the high-level land scams which happen so commonly in our country, that have been used as the foundation of the movie. Once Khoslaji is duped by Khurana (Boman Irani), for the land that he had bought for 30 lacs, is when the movie really picks some pace. Khosla’s sons then realize their father’s pain, who goes through what not, to try to get his plot back, but fails at the hands of corruption, where he is finally asked to pay money to get his own plot back. And fits in here is the trick: dupe the decoy, just the same way. Khurana’s old-friend-but-now-enemy Asif Iqbal (Vinay Pathak) comes into the scene of to help Khoslaji dupe Khurana. The story then goes on, showing how Khosla’s son’s befool Khurana to get some extra 30 lacs, which they use to pay for their lost land.
The story is definitely a depiction of the real corruption that exists in the land markets. But the kind of comedy that is included in between all this is just amazing to see. Initially one gets the impression that the movie is quite serious and possibly negative, when Khosla hits various doors in need of help and fails. It shows the pain the common man goes through, to let the truth out in the open and get justice. But right from the second half through the end, the movie brings a smile on everyone’s face, simply because its the common man who wins considerably. In addition, the movie lays a lot of stress on relationships, showing how a USA-bound son, who might have never thought about his father, comes out with the pledge to get his father’s plot back, and also in the end, realizing that he is never meant to be away from his family. The movie, I think, is all about simple living, but intelligent thinking.
The performances, they all have been just spectacular. Anupam Kher, has just been as natural as he was in his first film, Saaransh. Boman Irani, from the Munnabhai fame, has proved it again, that the kind of roles that he can carry through, is not a chutki ka khel for everyone. Vinay Pathak, plays an extremely strong role in the movie, and with high sophistication. Though, I have some complaints on the roles of Naveen Nischal and Tara Sharma, who have just been hunky-dory, there is nothing that I at least might remember them for in the movie.
The songs of the movie are laudable as well, which make the movie a complete and overall entertainer. Kailash Kher pulls off an amazing number, the wordings of which are just so relevant and true. Other songs by Adnan Sami and Kunal Ganjawala, make the album quite with variety. But the song ‘Intezar, Aitbar .. ‘ by Soumya Raoh, is my favourite, for its mellifluous nature, as well as its capability to remind me of someone.
