This Friday release is a comedy film ‘Jhootha Kahin Ka’ which stars Rishi Kapoor. The movie is indeed a treat for all the Rishi Kapoor fans as he is seen after a long time.
The story is based on Yograj Singh played by Rishi Kapoor who is proud of his ancestral property and farms. He wants his Mauritius returned son, Varun to join him in the family profession. But Varun (Omkaar Kapoor) has his own ideas.
Varun heads back to Mauritius to join his college best friend Karan (Sunny Singh) so that they can find a job together. But instead of a job, he ends up finding a girlfriend. Before you can think of anything else, Riya (Nimisha Mehta) and Varun get married in a jiffy and he moves in with the Mehtas by lying to them that he doesn’t have any family.
On the other hand, Karan’s long term girlfriend Sonam (Rucha Vaidya) is dying to get married to him but Karan is waiting for his older brother Tommy (Jimmy Shergill) to acknowledge them. Also, Karan has told her girlfriend that his only married big brother lives in London but he is actually in jail.
The web of lies made by Karan and Varun deepens when Yograj Singh decided to move to Mauritius to live with his son and ends up renting Mehta’s bungalow next door.
The film is a story of the comedy of errors which lacks screenplay. The twists in the movie can be predicted easily and what falls the film flat is an annoying background score. The dialogues are tedious and lack comedy sparks. The comedy that has shown in the movie is about a husband talking down to his wife and the men continuously mocking their wives way of speaking.
Sunny Singh pull of an act of confused and innocent character whereas Omkar Kapoor’s over the expressive face may get impress you to an extent. With limited screen time, Jimmy Shergill plays his part well. But overall, Rishi Kapoor saves it all with outstanding performance.
Overall the film lacks comedy but towards the end, there are some comedy movements to relish. The film surely leaves us wanting for more.
