The one thing I comprehended watching 'Ghanchakkar' is that, no matter what crime you do in Mumbai the cops don't even care about it :|
Sanju (Emraan Hashmi) is an expert in looting banks in a professional way as he takes permission from his intricate wife Neetu (Vidya Balan) before executing any plan. Eventually he teams up with Namit Das and Rajesh Sharma for one last adventure in robbing banks. Everything transpires well until Sanju loses his memory and forgets the place where he warehoused the money. Will Sanju regain his memory? Or he doesn't? Uncover all the facts in Ghanchakkar.
Noting the issues of the film, the climax is extremely bad. I mean did they really intend to do that? I agree that its a different attempt, something unusual. But it could be presented in other acceptable ways. Although, the plot was simple, the director envisioned to drag it for 2hrs which is absolutely not needed. But in some ways its slightly acceptable (not the climax) and agreeable.
The best part of the movie is the humour being dispensed, the movie had a great comedy, in this case the director had totally succeeded. Its fresh and unique mainly the slang of Vidya Balan is quite amusing. I would rather call this movie a bursted out comedy other than a comedic thriller, right from the word go it superseded in dispensing the entertainment factor.
Performances from the leads were truly amazing, Emraan shined in a unique pissed off role, concealing his playboy image he performed really well, particularly when it comes to few intense sequences. Vidya Balan is slightly annoying at times but she's utterly amusing with her slang and performance, the usual thing what we expect from a national award winner. Namit Das and Rajesh Sharma were the two surprises of the film, they did a splendid job together and that bromance worked out really well which was tremendously funny to watch.
Director from Raj Kumar Gupta was not really impressive in his standards, even though he worked out in an unique subject, he slightly missed out the essential thing that would make the difference. But he delivered the commercial part well, which may divert the masses for a while.
On the whole, Ghanchakkar is a laugh riot which may entertain you if comedy genre is your thing. Few great performances with an imperfect climax in a comedic movie may or may not workout with the onlookers.
My Rating - 2.5/5
Grade - C+ (It deserves your attention for a while)
