Ghanchakkar REVIEWS

Rajkumar Gupta's Memory Games...

By Jaidev Hemmady, MovieTalkies.com, 28 June 2013 2.5 / 5

Ghanchakkar Movie Review-In Short:
A thief loses his memory after a heist and forgets the location of the stash, with hilarious consequences.

Ghanchakkar Movie Review-Verdict:
Though the film has its funny moments, the overall product is not as impressive as was expected.

Ghanchakkar Movie Review-Story Plot:
Sanju Atre (Emraan Hashmi) is a retired thief who stays with his ambitious wife Neetu (Vidya Balan) in Mumbai. When Sanju gets an opportunity to participate in the biggest heist of his life, the initially reluctant Sanju agrees to be a part of it after encouragement from his wife.

Teaming up with Pandit (Rajesh Sharma) and Idris (Namit Das), Sanju manages to rob a bank to the tune of a cool Rs. 30 crore. Pandit and Idris tell Sanju to keep the money safe with him so that they can meet after three months (when things have cooled down) to divide the loot.

However, when Pandit and Idris call him up after three months, Sanju claims to know nothing about them or about any money from a bank robbery. When the two robbers confront him, Sanju claims to have lost his memory following an accident.

Is Sanju lying? Or is he double-crossing everyone? Watch the movie to find out...

One expects a quirky soundtrack in Ghanchakkar, an Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan starrer which made a fantastic impression the moment its first theatrical promo was unveiled. With it being crystal clear that the film is miles away from what one otherwise brands as a 'quintessential Emraan Hashmi affair', it is also on the cards that the music would be on different lines instead of being abound with Sufi based numbers. Moreover with Amit Trivedi as the composer and Amitabh Bhattacharya lyricist who anyways operate in their own space, one waits to be surprised with what eventually plays on.

Well, there is a surprise which is pretty much in store at the very onset as Richa Sharma sings for Vidya Balan. Titled Lazy Lad, this one has the kind of sound that reminds one of Geeta Dutt songs from the 50s. A fun number which showcases Vidya explaining all about her 'ghanchakkar' husband (Emraan Hashmi) who is as lazy as one can be, this one won't go all the way like Kyon Aage Peeche Dolte Ho [Golmaal] but is still decent enough to fetch your attention. With the music video carrying its own quirk, this one should aid in the film's promotion though one wonders if it appears in the film's narrative as well.

Divya Kumar comes next with his qawalli' 'Allah Meharbaan which has the kind of sound that one would have associated with Altaf Raja. While Altaf does come into the album a little later in the album, for now one listens to Allah Meharbaan which is pretty much taregeted at the single screen audience for Emraan. A decent hear, a lot would depend on how the song is picturised for screen.
