    Saat Uchakkey, with its profusion of profanities and an abundance of audacity, hits all the right notes for most of its playing time. Cinematographer John Jacob Payapalli shoots old Delhi with a keen eye for decadence and debauchery in conflict with a world of techno-driven instant gratification that has seeped into the crumbling walls of havelis that have seen better times.

    Fed of poverty and his inability to provide his girl with nice things, a small time crook plans a heist. And yes, it goes wrong. In fact, everything from the language that is used in the film is wrong. It’s a mystery how the Censor Board allows the word, ‘Kutiya’ (bitch) being used again and again to describe the girlfriend! This film should go wash it’s mouth with soap.

    Despite loopholes in the script, what manages to keep the audience engaged is undoubtedly the spontaneity with which the three actors – Manoj Bajpayee, Kay Kay Menon and Vijay Raaz – deliver their dialogues. The well-thought-out punchlines seem to work for the most of the time, if not always. They do exactly what you think they should – they make you laugh.

  • Saat Uchakkey stands out for its excellent casting, excellent acting and – when it is not self-conscious – excellent humour. Now if only that had been enough…

  • Bajpayee and the rest of the cast plough on, regardless of the meaninglessness of the script. The only person you feel for is Kay Kay Menon, the police officer who is always late to the chase and is left bewildered and empty-handed in the end. That’s how the audience is likely to feel too at the end of “Saat Uchakkey”.

    …it has flavour, a seed of a good idea even, something mega-budget films often lack. But like our Dilli Laundas Eleven, it lacks planning and execution.

    Saat Uchakkey is a real surprise package. This reasonably under sold movie has a lot of endearing goodness and the kind of satirical silly humour that made movies like Jaane Bhi Do Yaro and Kholsa Ka Ghosla such classics. It may not be the most polished product but it is a gem nonetheless, a funny movie with the right amount of weirdness and outrageous ideas. All presented in an honest and crazy manner.  This One’s sure to con you into having a good time.

  • …adds up to nothing more than a crash course in profanity

  • Saat Uchakkey is far too undercooked a broth to pass for what it wants to be – a zany, off-the-beaten-track entertainer.

    It veers off the rails all too quickly and never returns anywhere close to getting back on course. Stay out of the way.

    Old ghosts and new dreams survive side by side in this Manoj Bajpayee, Vijay Raaz film as we get to see Old Delhi like we have never seen it before.

  • ‘Saat Uchakkey’ could well be a crash course in abusive rant. Filmed entirely in the old lanes of the capital, this film will only end up giving you a Delhi belly

    We have no clue what was the director’s vision behind this film but his execution has gone awfully wrong. Please skip it, unless you want to subject yourself to some mental torture.
