‘Phas Gaye Re Obama’ Review - ‘Phas Gaye Re Obama’ Movie Review
Director- Subhash Kapoor
Star Cast- Amol Gupte, Neha Dhupia, Rajat Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra, Manu Rishi
The movie begins with a character ‘Om’, played by Rajat Kapoor, he stays in US, but the sudden economic slowdown lands him in a big state of trouble.
If he would stay for more time in the states, he would not be able to pay the huge sums of loans even he doesn’t have money to pay his children's school fees. So he decides to come back to India after 7 years, just to sell his ancestral haweli in Uttar Pradesh, but later finds that it is of almost no value.
There is another gangster in the movie called ‘Anni’, played by Manu Rishi, he dreams of going to US, so he watched every single album of Rocky and Rambo sequel.
The obsession for the American dollar is showed by wanna be gangster NRI’s Rishi and Bhaisaab, they wear those typical blue and white, star ties, has Obama graffiti on their walls, cheers for Obama’s ‘Yes’ we can” speeches, and even takes English classes to train them for staying in US.
The movie’s strongest points are its characters, its song free style (only one song by Kailash Kher) and the choice of the subject matter. The movie is full of surprises and one can’t predict the climax of it, honest suggestion, at least check it out once, if you have some sour pages of recession in your diary!
