Humshakals (2014) Review
Satish Shah is brilliant as Y.M. Raj warden of Lord Crazy Mental Asylum.In his getup he looks very much like Oliver Hardy.His ideals are the most horrible dictators of past century whose idea of worst form of torture is to show Sajid Khan's Himmatwala to his captives.
In the cross-dressing Avatar only Riteish Deshmukh impresses who looks really pretty as a woman which was confirmed by the exclamations of two girls who sat next to me.Audience simply loved it for it was like a stress-buster and sat till the end of titles as they showed many funny bloopers."Caller Tune" song is already topping the charts and other songs to are full of fun.
Ram Kapoor has come out well in his triple role.He plays Saif Ali Khan's maternal uncle K.A.N.S. scheming to get all his property.Saif has acted well though he looks shoddy dressed in frocks.Ram Kapoor looks like a bloated up version of Tun-Tun which may give you the idea how exotic he looks.Chunkey Pandey is brilliantly funny in what ever little screen-time he gets.Tamannaah Bhatia & Esha Gupta have small roles and do their best in them.
Sajid Khan dedicates this film to Kishore Kumar,Peter Sellers.A scene from Half-Ticket is the one where Saif and Riteish butter up Ram Kapoor's face,its the only colorized (By ULTRA) Kishore Kumar-Madhubala film.
