Movie Review : Phas Gaye Re Obama

December 2nd, 2010 - 4:35 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire  

Director: Subhash Kapoor

Starring: Amol Gupte, Neha Dhupia, Rajat Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra, Manu Rishi

Director Subhash Kapoor, who is just two films old, will be competing with two well settled directors of Bollywood this Friday at the Box Office. His comedy Phas Gaye Re Obama will be a break for those, who wants to avoid watching serious films this week. Ram Gopal Varma’s Rakta Charitra 2 and Ashutosh Gowariker’s Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey will give a tough competition to Kapoor’s movie.

Phas Gaye Re Obama is a comedy based on the global recession and how it affects the recession-hit abduction industry. The director has given a refreshing take on this serious global issue. The otherwise glamor girl Neha Dhupia will be seen in a very funny avatar of ‘Munni Gangster’. Her ‘female Gabbar Singh’ act is a very dramatic representation of the character and she has done it very convincingly.

On the other hand, Rajat Kapoor as the bankrupt NRI Om Shastri has given a wonderful performance that makes him look like a really lost businessman. When he comes back to India after seven years with a hope to sell his ancestral ‘haveli’, the local gangster Bhaisaab (Sanjay Mishra) kidnaps him.

Rishi’s character Anni is a sidekick of Bhaisaab and is smitten by the idea of earning dollar. He is a great fan of Obama and wears ties and bandanas with those Stars and Stripes print.

The movie is made with a very small budget of Rs 3 crore but it is definitely going to do well at the Box Office with such a laugh riot. The promotion of the movie is not done at a very higher level but it will earn good word of mouth.
