Bheja Fry- Offical movie website

 

Official Movie Website>>

Cast: Sarika (Sheetal), Rajat Kapoor (Ranjeet Thandani, Vinay Pathak (Bharat Bhusahn), Ranvir Shorey (Asif, the income tax-officer), Milind Soman (Anant Ghoshal) and Bhairavi Goswami (Suman Rao) Director: Sagar Bellary

Bheja Fry is an awesome movie. I just loved watching it. It’s a movie for everyone. I am very sure everyone who watches this movie will laugh his heart out.

 

It’s the story of a group of smug urbanites who invite an idiot for dinner every week, laughing up the evening at his expense. Of course, the idiot turns the tables.

 

Bheja Fry is actually a remake of a French movie Le Diner De Cons (The Dinner Game).

 

Here is the synopsis of the movie:

Ranjeet Thadani (Rajat Kapoor), a bored, arrogant music company executive hurts his back the night he has found a prize catch for a weekly bring- your-idiot talent dinner hosted by his friends and him. He ends up spending the evening with this idiot, Bharat Bhushan (Vinay Pathak) who tries to help him get his wife (Sarika) back who left him earlier that day. The result is utter chaos let loose by the idiot, who cannot do a single thing without messing it up further.

The plot turns around to be a series of mini disasters that leave Ranjeet’s comfortable life in ruins.

 

The main protagonist of the movie is Vinay Pathak who plays the role of Bharat Bhushan, a roly-poly officer with the Income Tax department. His innocence and his obsession for singing gets him trapped in Ranjeet Thadani’s house. He shares his pain through Hindi songs and a scrap book which contains memoirs of his childhood. He relentlessly tries to be of some help to Ranjeet Thadani, only to make matters worse on every front. A likeable, warm little fellow, he is undeniably a big time goof up.

 

I won’t revile reveal much of the movie and spoil your fun. But I do suggest that you make it a point to watch this wonderful movie. This is what a comedy movie should be like- no heavy dialogs, no vulgar slang, no provocative scenes. Just plain ol’ situational comedy. Just perfect to tickle your funny bone a little.

 

BTW, a point worth mentioning- That the movie is not a long boring one. It’s just around 1 hour 45 minutes long.

Mungaru Male

Posted: February 2, 2007 in Movies

It was just that kind of a week where all my plans crashed and burned. My sis and I decided to catch up on a movie this week. Our initial plan was to make it to “Salam-E-Ishq”. Thanks to the timely advice by one of my friend, we dint make it to this movie which is supposed to be a boringly 3 hours 45 minutes long movie. I finally bought two tickets to “Blood Diamond” which had very good reviews all over the place. Only later in the day, I realized I had forgotten about my friends Bachelors Party. Mom and Dad were the lucky ones to make it to the movie in our place!

After this mayhem of planning, we wanted to now make it to a movie whatever happens. Couple of my friends, my sis and me bought tickets to “Mungaru Male” (which had good ratings too). Going by the fact that I had very less sleep the previous night because of the party, I was very reluctant to make it to this, that too for a night show. But after watching the movie, I felt it was all worth it. It’s been a while since I liked a kannada movie. (Last kannada movie I liked was “AaptaMithra”).

Mungaru Male revolves around the happy go lucky Preetham who accompanies his mother to the hilly area of Madikeri to attend a wedding. He falls for a girl without knowing who she is, and it is only after both of them realise that they are deeply in love that they are struck by a twist.

Ganesh and Sanjana - Mungaru Male Ganesh, better known as ‘Comedy Time’ Ganesh because of his extremely popular TV show has grown from a two-scene comedian to a full-fledged hero. However I still feel he could have done a lot better in terms of acting. But going by the fact that this is his first movie, I would say, he has done a pretty good job. He is the protagonist of the movie.

Sanjana Gandhi, the heroine of the movie is however in my view the week link in the movie. Her acting is far below par. There are lot many other better heroines the movie could have taken in.

Mano Murthy has done a pretty decent job with the songs. Popular songs are ‘Anisuthidhe’, ‘Onde ondu saari’ and ‘Araluthiru’. They are all pretty good to take a place in all our music players for a while.

Things to look out for in the movie:

  • Most of the movie is shot at amazing locations. Breath-taking views of Malnad region that too in the rainy season is the biggest plus in the movie. Making it to Malnad in the rainy season has been added to my To-Do list now
  • A very small part of the movie is shot at an edge of a very beautiful waterfall. There are some great shots of this waterfall – Amazing photography
  • Light comedy that keeps you going all through the movie
  • Anant Nag – His expressions, when he is not using the hearing aid, are really hilarious!

All in all, its quite an interesting movie to watch and I felt it was worth the money and time I spent on it.

My rating: 3.5 / 5
