Good, Funny Movie
22 April 2007 | by oinamSee all my reviews

Bheja Fry is a movie that will irritate you to laugh; perhaps a Sunday evening well spent for me laughing out to the irritant of Bharat Bhushan (Vinay Pathak). This 95 minute movie is enough to entertain you whilst you're at the Movie Hall and should not be pondered beyond that. For those looking for some serious humor, forget it and definitely not for those who always wanted an action flick nor for those who wants those French-Speaking-English-Subtitle Oscar worthy movies.

The movie is about Bharat Bhushan, who was supposedly one of the scapegoats for Ranjeet Thadani's (Rajat Kapoor) Friday IDIOT' Dinner Party. Well, that is what he does, he invite budding talents to dinner on Fridays and let them sing, dance and he enjoys the fun. The table was turned and he had to bear the beyond-control-idiocy of Bharat Bhusan on a particular Friday. The situation is that of trying to make an extreme simpleton an idiot thus ruining the fun when the idiot never realizes the game. On top of that, what if he never gets angry? That is the peak of irritation mount. That's what Ranjeet faces with Bharat!

It was fun to watch Bharat Bhushan right from the moment we saw him in a bus bound for Pune from Mumbai. He was good all along his stay with Rajat at his house on that day, TGIF (Thanks God its Friday). His phone calls – it is ringing to redial are funny even when you know it was coming the next time. You should watch for his phone calls to people that mess up the whole thing and in fact which is the backbone of this movie. I will keep the details of the story line for those willing to enjoy this movie.
