Oye Lucky Lucky Oye - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Subtle comment on family's contribution to a personality, another subtle comment on the media hullaboo. With a smart sense of humor. But, a very dull plot with no ups and downs to keep you interested.
