Film: "Mr. Bhatti on Chutti"; Cast: Anupam Kher, Abid Ali, Shakti Kapoor, Emma Kearney and Pawan Shankar; Director: Karan Razdan; Rating: 1/2
Karan Razdan's much-awaited "Mr. Bhatti on Chutti" is an absolute no-no if you are on a chhutti (holiday) yourself! It neither entertains, nor boasts of any great histrionics.
With Anupam Kher in the lead role and a seemingly fun title, one is all geared to watch a great performance and have lots of laughs. But sadly, the film offers none of that.
From the word go, all that the viewer gets to see is buffoonery and contorted body movements, in which Anupam indulges unabashedly. And all in the name of humour!
"BB Bhatti, manager, Dhanalaxmi Bank in Nalasopara and a part-time detective of my area." Mr. Bhatti (Anupam) mouths this introduction repeatedly, and with a peace plan tucked under his sleeve, he is on a quest seeking US President George Bush.
