Padosan - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

Popularly rated as one of the 10 Best Comedies of Hindi Cinema till date, this is a cult classic famous for its unique comedy, performances, songs and the timeless appeal in its execution. A comedy which actually received its current status after many years of its release in 1968, has been the prime inspiration for all the writers and directors of the present times wishing to make a fine comic project. The film has a tremendous repeat value and is universally loved by all like a perfect entertainer, since it never drags or makes you feel bored even after its numerous repeated viewings.  
 
It’s a fast paced, entertaining comedy from start to finish, with all the top comic actors of that golden era having a good time on the screen. For instance, just imagine Kishore Kumar, Mehmood, Keshto Mukherjee, Om Prakash, Agha and Sunil Dutt (in a hilarious role too) sharing the same stage, interacting with each other having their own individual amusing mannerisms performed perfectly. Hence with all these maestros giving their own incomparable inputs, the film eventually turned out to be masterpiece setting a new benchmark for all the comedies to be made post the 70s.

However, another truth related with “Padosan” is that though it is now respected as one of the best products of Hindi Cinema, but reportedly the film was not a huge success at the time of its release in the late sixties. It was produced by Mehmood himself and he had to make another quickie after “Padosan” to keep it rolling which was called “Sadhu Aur Shaitaan” released in the same year. Further as a revelation, “Padosan” was actually based on the Bengali Story by Arun Chowdhury, which was adapted for a film titled “Pasher Bari” (Bengali) in 1952 directed by Sudhir Mukherjee. Later it was also remade in Telugu and Tamil before being re-made in Hindi.
 
But if you haven’t seen it yet then please don’t let its rather lesser known “Remake” status discourage you in any way (keeping in mind the present avoidable trend of making remakes in the new millennium). In fact just forget about all the facts and do watch it at the earliest to witness one of the most enjoyable romantic comedies ever made in Hindi Cinema. And in case you find it too loud or over the top then it also has many melodious memorable tracks which are sure going to keep you hooked on to the screen including Mere Saamne Wali Khidki Mein, Ek Chatur Naar, Kehna Hai, Meri Pyari Bindu, Sham Aati Hai Magar, Bhai Bhattur and many more composed by the legendary R. D. Burman. So if comedy is the genre you love, then “Padosan” is the one you got to see as a must.

After “Aawara Paagal Deewane” which followed “The Whole Nine Yards”, the same team returned with “Deewane Hue Paagal” featuring Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal & Suniel Shetty. And this time they got all their inspiration from "There's something About Mary". In few words, it’s like seeing the English Comedy in Hindi with different characters and some Hindi Songs. Even the handicapped mannerisms of Suniel Shetty, the long mike used by Akshay, his disguise of an Architect, the little dog catching fire and many more sequences are quite similar to “There’s Something About Marry”.

But still the Indian version was hilarious enough with the funny Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal at their best. Their perfect comic timing was simply superb and worth watching.

Pushpak - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

This is a one of its kind experimental movie from the thinking mind of Kamal Hassan. A silent comedy in the late eighties was no doubt a daring attempt by the producer director. And since it was a quality effort by its creative team, the film was widely accepted and appreciated all over. Though it’s a silent movie in the sense of no dialogues and only background music, but few minutes in the film and you will not feel watching something new and out of the box. The direction is of such a class that you don’t realize that we are not having any dialogues here.
 
The story is expressed beautifully, especially the love chase between Kamal Hassan and Amla filmed remarkably. Hats Off to the makers of this movie that they had the courage to put money in such kind of risky but creative venture. Really a treat to watch with Kamal Hassan in his true form.

A highly entertaining adult comedy based on marriage, affairs and sex. It revolves around 3 couples, their make ups, their breakups and about a gorgeous lady seducing them all. It is a fun filled movie made stylishly with a different kind of humour.

The movie is not a cheap sexy comedy as it tackles the subject with fine sensitivity and perfection. The writers have used the delicate issue of extramarital affairs as the backdrop of an intelligent sex comedy. If you are interested in watching good innovative stuff about the current scenario of bizarre relationships in our society, then go for “Knots”. In fact some of the recent Hit Hindi Comedies are also loosely based on it.

Starring : Scot Cohen, Paulina Porizkova, Tara Reid & More
