Love Khichdi Review
Director: Srinivas Bhashyam
Cast: Randeep Hooda, Riya Sen, Divya Dutta, Rituparna Sengupta,Sonali Kulkarni
Love Khichdi is a failed attempt to stretch a wafer thin story. The film is just a collage of various romantic moments which have been put together by director Srinivas Bhashyam.
Love Khichdi is the story of a protagonist who has a large number of women moving in and out of his life. This is a metro-centric concept could have been better if the assorted women did not appear and disappear randomly in the narrative.
This spoils the kichdi.
Vir [Randeep Hooda], who is a bachelor from a small town, works as a chef in a hotel in Mumbai. He is a handsome, charming, macho man who really needs to grow up.
Vir is completely intimidated by one beautiful woman after another. From his man-hating maid Shanta Bai (Sonali Kulkarni), whom he gazes at as she wipes his floor to the man-eating Nafisa (Kalpana Pandit), the powerful call-centre executive and from the beauty-with-brains Sharmishta (Rituparna Sengupta) to the pretty and playful Parminder (Divya Dutta), Vir does not spare any.
Sandhya, essayed by Sadaa, supports him in all his activity, until she realises that the track which he is on is a completely wrong one.
Love Khichdi is a reflection of the current youths, who want to have the fun, minus commitment. This movie projects the life of a guy who believes in 'no strings attached' fun. The assorted women here add spice to his already spicy life.
But none of the escapades are good as it were projected.
Director Srinivas Bhashyam had an interesting idea, but he loses the plot midway. Pritam's music is boring. But the dialogues are really scripted well.
Randeep sparkles all through, except towards the climax, when he breaks down. Except for Sonali Kulkarni and Sadaa, all the other women have not done anything worth.
In short, Love Khichdi has a bad taste.
