Khosla Ka Ghosla Reviews and Ratings
This one is drawn straight from the heartland of middle class India. Maybe that’s why it strikes an instant chord with it’s familiar tale of an ageing man’s dream to invest his savings in a dream house for his family in South Delhi.
Khosla Ka Ghosla scores for its unusual plot (pun unintended), spirited wit and great acting jobs. But even at a mere eight reels, the film feels longer than it is.
On the journey to Khosla’s happy ending we encounter characters who seem like our next-door neighbours… Khosla’s Sardarji friend, the cunning tout who cheats Khosla, the actor who ‘plays’ Navin Nishchol’s PA, the stage actress who smokes her way though the plot to hoodwink Boman… every character seems like someone you’ve met in that long and cumbersome journey of life which we all have to go through.
Thank God for stopovers like KHOSLA KA GHOSLA.
Golmaal, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, these are gigantic reference points for any film. This one lives up to them in substantial measure; I can’t think of a better compliment to pay.
