Mr. Bhatti on Chutti Movie Review: Bhatti’s Bald Attempt At Humour
To fans of veteran actor Anupam Kher, who have enjoyed and appreciated his masterful performance in movies like Saaransh, Daddy, Karma and even Khosla Ka Ghosla and A Wednesday in recent times, this reviewer sincerely appeals to not opt for Kher's latest flick Mr. Bhatti On Chutti. To see such a talented actor delve in the abyss of buffoonery would certainly make one wail in anguish…
Karan Razdan, who had come up with the horrible horror flick Warning some months back, now comes up with another worse (if possible) product in Mr. Bhatti On Chutti, film that can be called a 'retarded remake' of the Amitabh Bachchan thriller Don.
Brij Bhushan Bhatti (Kher) is a nerdy assistant bank manager and a wannabe private detective who keeps calling up the White House because he wants to talk to the US President George Bush and share his 'peace plan' with him. When the intolerable Bhatti gets a mysterious package containing details of a free vacation to Liverpool, he jumps at the chance…and straight into a murky plot involving a lookalike terrorist named Abu Siddique (Anupam kher again) with a diabolical plan to blow up various parts of the United Kingdom, a moll Katie (Bhairavi Goswami), who talks in an irritating baby voice, a cop Javed Khan (Abid Ali), who wants Bhatti to infiltrate Siddique's gang to ferret out information, a Pakistani staying in London (Shakti Kapoor) and a motley crew of other equally asinine characters, who seem hell-bent on ruining the viewer's day. Needless to say, the clumsy bumpkin Bhatti manages to save the day and becomes a hero for one and all (yawns galore)….
It is indeed disappointing to see Kher as he merrily stumbles his way through the story with his irritating traits (he starts dancing whenever any cell phone within hearing range belts out a ringtone). The rest of the cast seems to compete with each other to see who can ham the best. Moreover, the look and print of the film reminds one of 'C' grade movies that used to be made in the 80s and the less said about the script, screenplay, dialogues and cinematography, the better.
The only one scene when the viewer might wipe his eyes and wake up is when Amitabh Bachchan appears in a cameo, but then, the Big B's persona and baritone could make a log sit up and take notice…
In conclusion, don't waste your chutti to go and watch Mr. Bhatti On Chutti…
