Bollywood’s first biggie, which was supposed to run in the theatres but had to premiere on OTT, Gulabo Sitabo is now premiered on Prime Video. For the First time, this writer-director duo of Juhi Chaturvedi and Shoojit Sircar disappoints you to the limit. Despite unique script ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ is a complete failure in terms of Comedy, Direction, and Dialogues. The film comes in the Social Satire genre and this is the weakest point of the film as it doesn’t make you smile even twice.
- Unique Script
- Star Cast
- Few Performances
- Weak dialogues are the biggest loopholes
- Slow and boring screenplay
- Confused characters development
Plot: Mirza (Amitabh Bachchan) is a greedy man even later in his 70’s, he only knows money. He has 4-5 families as tenants in his Haweli. Mirza’s biggest enemy is Bankey (Ayushmann Khurrana) among all the tenants. Bankey and Mirza always fight for rent but Bankey hardly pays him. Now Mirza wants to throw Bankey out of the Haweli and Bankey is looking for his benefits too. Now archaeology department, lawyers, property builders come into the action and everyone wants Haweli. But what happens to the Haweli and who is going to get it, in the end, is the crux of the story.
Screenplay: Juhi Chaturvedi’s screenplay is as slow as Mirza’s walking speed in the film, too boring.
Amitabh Bachchan as Mirza has done a superb job with his looks and voice
Ayushmann Khurrana as Bankey is just good but not something magical and memorable
Farrukh Jafar as Begum is quite good
Vijay Raaz as Gyanesh Shukla is good and has his moments
Brijendra Kala as Lawyer Christopher Clark is good as always
Direction: Shoojit Sircar’s direction seems okay but when comedy is missing from a comic genre film then what direction, screenplay, and acting can be done? So direction also seems equally weak.
The Last Word: We knew that ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ is never made for masses but after watching it I’ll not recommend it to the classes even. It tortures you with its dragged and boring screenplay. Comedy is completely missing in this social comedy-drama film.
