Last time Randeep Hooda played an imaginary character trying to make the female protagonist realise her dreams in Mere Khwabon mein jo aaye. This time around, he is the one who lives in dreams, more precisely fantasising about the various women in his life. Whether these dreams are realized or not is something that we need to check in Love Khichdi.
Hooda plays a Casanova who also happens to be a chef, who wants to date every single woman that he comes across. Be it his domestic help (Sonali Kulkarni) or his colleague (Rituparna Sengupta) or a school girl (Riya sen) . Nobody seems to have been spared. At the same time, there is this receptionist colleague of his who is smitten by him. When she proposes, he is unable to come to a decision & eventally she walks of to walk down the aisle with someone else. Since he does not believe in the concept of Love, in true Bollywood style True Love finds him. It is then that he realizes her worth & sets about wooing her back.
Though the story may have some novelty to it, It does show shades of Bollywood cinema that we have seen in the past, e.g. Bachna Ae Haseeno, Dil Chahata Hai etc. This is in with reference to the characterizations strictly.
Randeep Hooda performs well and carries the film on his shoulders. Saurabh Shukla lends a helping hand. The rest of the cast go about doing their works and make a pretty decent job out of it.
So bol meri “Filmi Khopdi” is film mein kitna hain dum ?
Dum ho sakta tha, had it been executed well. However, this Khichdi proves to be a disaster leaving a sour taste in your mouth. Completely avoidable stuff.
