Aloo Chat - Preview

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

A start towards being a Hrishkesh Mukherjee film. Keeps that smile on the face throughout. But doesn't offer a laughter fest.

NOT A REVIEW - Just waiting for laughs...

Aloo chaat, the name by itself tells you that there is some level of symbolism going on here. Either the characters will represent different ingredients of the delicacy or they have a life that is as tangy-spicy.

The promo that runs about 2 minutes made me laugh a couple of times so looks like we are in for a good time. Unless one of my worst fears about funny promos comes true - that they have exhausted their gags in those 2 minutes. Let's hope not.

Actor Aftab Shivdasani is confident that we should look forward to a good time -

I can assure that no one from the audience will have a single moment of embarrassment or discomfort when the film is on; it is so clean

Though making us laugh is not the only intention of the film as per Director, Robby Grewal -

Aloo Chaat was conceived as a film with the objective of entertaining the audience, with a liberal dose of fun and laughter, but at the same time leaving a pertinent question regarding discrimination of people on the basis of caste and creed.

Ouch. Does that mean we should be prepared for a sermon on religious equality?

Also he says,

It’s a film set in Delhi with all the trappings of a middle class Punjabi household. I seriously believe Punjabis are the funniest species on the planet, and I have attempted to capture that very essence of Punjabi humour in my film.

Hmmm...looks like the caricatures in the promos are there to stay.

Meanwhile to add oomph value, Linda Arsenio of Kabul Express and Mumbai Salsa, will wear a bikini

I think we can look forward to a few good laughs even if Aftab sporting a jacket that reads 'FAFF' is a worry -
