Phas Gaye Re Obama - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Phas Gaye Re Obama is witty, crass slapstick, satirical and repetitive in turns. Every goon in town and the politician too is chasing an American dream -that of kidnapping an American based desi for some quick ransom money. Let your imagination go berserk around this situation, Phans Gaye Re Obama offers that and more - in terms of laughs, "eeeews", and plain and simple "blehs".

What Worked

  • The background music.
  • The camerawork, especially the long shots.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Rajat Kapoor's monologue when he explains his situation to Bhai saahab.
  • The repetition of the "yes, we can" joke.
  • The acting of the guy who plays Ali bhai
  • People who can barely speak English, pronouncing the word "career" the right way. They invariably pronounce it "carier"
