    Default Movie Review: Gali Gali Chor Hai

    Follow us on Social Media







    Story:




    The story revolves around Bharat (Akshaye Khanna), the Aam Aadmi, a cashier and a part time Hanuman at the local Ramleela, residing in the city of Bhopal, where he lives with his father Shivnarayan (Satish Kaushik) and is married to Nisha (Shriya Saran), a schoolteacher. Bharat disappoints the corrupt MLA and opposes him in using one room of his house for his election work and then starts Bharat’s misery. Then, he further gets into the dirty politics and becomes a victim of corruption, in the process of wanting a normal life.



    Story Treatment:

    The story seems to have taken its reference from the agitation of Anna Hazare, the fight of the Aam Admi. However, it highlights the frustration of the present day common man, who is vulnerable to politics and the corruption present all around. The title is justified with the narration of the story. Good jokes on politicians and the use of pun is tactful. A bit too stretched misery and an abrupt ending prove to be the dampeners.




    Star Cast:

    Akshaye Khanna truly emerges as the Hanuman of the film, carrying the entire movie on his shoulder effortlessly. Shriya Saran is expressive and looks pretty on-screen. The arguments between Akshaye and Shriya, as husband and wife are extremely natural. Mugdha Godse gets no scope to show her skills, Satish Kaushik is efficient in his portrayal of a retired government servant and a troubled father. Annu Kapoor is excellent while essaying the character of a corrupt hawaldar.

    Direction:



    Rumy Jafry has tried to hit the bull’s eye by handling the current and subtle subject like corruption and politics efficiently. There are moments that seem dragged and only the presentation of the corruption existing in the society makes it a dull effort in parts. The trauma of a common man, struggling to get out of the dirty politics is shown with ease. Admirable performance from his star cast have undoubtedly helped the director in the final product.

    Dialogues/cinematography/music:

    Dialogues are realistic, impactful and naturally put together. Cinematography is decent. Extra heed has been given to make sure that a sensitive subject is not bombarded with songs. The intro song, Gali Gali Chor Hai makes an awesome appeal and starts on a promising note. The much hyped Veena Malik’s item number- Mehngi hui hai angraee has no brunt in the film and looks tasteless on-screen. The outfits, backdrop justify the middle-class status of the family and make the entire film more realistic.



    3ups and downs:

    Akshaye’s performance, especially the scene where he slaps the cop and the corrupt politician leaves an impact. The victims of corruption and politics will be able to relate to the plight of Bharat. An abrupt ending and little publicity will act as a hindrance for the film.

    Star cast: Akshaye Khanna, Shriya Saran, Mugdha Godse, Satish Kaushik, Annu Kapoor, Murali Sharma, Vijay Raaz, Amit Mistry.

    What’s Good: A few satirical scenes; the entertaining dialogues; the acting.

    What’s Bad: The small-town feel of the film; the lack of real entertainment for the city audience of today; the over-stretching of the drama; the lack of a proper climax.

    Verdict: Gali Gali Chor Hai will not get the appreciation of the audience. Given its poor start, it cannot hope to pick up, due to lack of positive word of mouth.

    Loo break: Not really.

    Watch or Not?: Watch it if you want to see a well-intentioned film which also boasts of good performances.

    One Up Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.’s Gali Gali Chor Hai (UA) is about the problem of corruption in India and how the common man’s life is affected because of this menace. Bharat (Akshaye Khanna) lives in Bhopal with his wife, Nisha (Shriya Saran), and father, Shivnarayan (Satish Kaushik). Bharat, a straightforward and principled guy, works as a cashier in a bank and also doubles up as Hanuman in the local Ram Leela stage-play because he loves acting. Playing Lord Ram in the play is Tripathi (Amit Mistry) whose elder brother, Manku Tripathi (Murali Sharma), is the local MLA. One day, Tripathi comes to Bharat’s home, asking for a room in his house to be allowed to be used as the election office in the area for his MLA-brother because elections are just around the corner. Since Bharat’s wife is not in favour, he refuses to let Tripathi use the room. Bharat has a paying guest in Amita (Mugdha Godse).

    Feeling slighted, Manku Tripathi and his younger brother seek revenge. They tell police officer Parshuram Kushwaha (Annu Kapoor) to teach Bharat the lesson of a lifetime. Kushwaha involves Bharat in a robbery case by convincing him and his father about a table fan having been stolen from their house. He says, the thief, Chunnu Farishta (Vijay Raaz), had been arrested and had confessed to the crime. He asks Bharat to come to the police station the next day so that he could take him to court to have the table fan restored to him. Although no table fan has been stolen from their house, Shivnarayan and Bharat realise, it would be better to follow Kushwaha’s instructions because he threatens them with dire consequences if they do not obey him. Bharat and his father are unaware till quite late in the day that this entire drama had been scripted by the Tripathi brothers to seek revenge.

    From here begins Bharat’s nightmare as he keeps bribing the policeman, thief, lawyer etc. to get the table fan which, in the first place, never belonged to him. He spends Rs. 31,000 to finally get the fan.

    Bharat’s tale of woes doesn’t end there. He tries to discard the fan because his father feels, it is unlucky. But the corrupt system won’t even let him do that. As one thing leads to another, Bharat is imprisoned for alleged terrorist activity.

    What happens thereafter? Is Bharat able to prove his innocence? Does he fight the corrupt system or does he simply forget his tryst with corruption like a bad dream?
