Ek Chalis Ki Last Local - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

It's a super-insane plot that is composed of absolutely eccentric sub-plots. However, a good dose of imaginative comedy is blemished by dark comedy that generally does not suit my taste. Overall, though the way the different plots are put together is original and is worthy of appreciation. The makers' courage deserves extra points.
