Mr where the film belongs

A number of not-so-regular filmmakers try their luck at film production. Their intention may be honest but lack of knowledge about how the film industry works as well as what works with moviegoers usually drowns them.

Since these newcomers don’t have access to big stars nor would the big stars agree to work with them, they end up making films with whoever is ready to work for money. Such films go unnoticed and the new entrepreneur ends up losing money.

What is grossly disheartening about Mr Kabaadi is that, it is not only a waste of money but also of a huge talent bank of actors like Om Puri, Annu Kapoor, Vinay Pathak and Brijendra Kala.

The film has no purpose, no head or tail and depicts total bankruptcy of ideas.

The role played by Annu Kapoor is that of a 'kabaadiwala,' a scrap dealer who suddenly inherits millions. From his shabby basti and his equally poor friends, he shifts to a bungalow with three balconies and two wading pools. He has married his kabaadi days love, Sarika, and now has a son and a daughter. Now that he is rich, Annu hates the word kabaadi and does not want anybody to remind him of his past.

While his daughter is shown to be fairly educated and can converse in English, his son is a fifth standard dropout who has excelled in the business of running a chain of public toilets! (This is the kind of comedy it is, believe it.)

Annu wants to get his son married but no family would tie the knot with a boy who has a business of toilets. The girl is a rebel and won't agree to the match her parents find.

The boy and the girl separately fall in love and this senseless 'tamasha' goes on.

There is no sense talking about performances in this film because, as mentioned earlier. Less said about writing, direction and other aspects of the film, the better.

Producer: Anup Jalota.

Director: Seema Kapoor.

Cast: Om Puri, Annu Kapoor, Sarika, Vinay Pathak and Brijendra Kala.
