FAMILY OF THAKURGANJ - A film in which you keep waiting for its talented cast to deliver, but it never happens till the end resulting in a big disappointment. (Review By Bobby Sing)

19 Jul, 2019 | Movie Reviews / 2019 Releases

At times a trailer doesn’t excite but one still remains interested in a film because of an outstanding cast ensemble probably coming together for the first time. FAMILY OF THAKURGANJ releases as a similar case and the excitement was indeed there to watch veterans as Pavan Malhotra, Saurabh Shukla, Jimmy Sheirgill, Mukesh Tiwari, Mahie Gill, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Yashpal Sharma, Manoj Pahwa and more clashing on the screen in a gangster-family drama.

However, what actually gets presented as a film, delivers nothing of that sort and even such veterans fail to provide the entertainment, ironically well-known for this specific genre. Directed by Manoj K. Jha (remaining in deep influence of similar cult movies seen in the recent times) FAMILY OF THAKURGANJ not only disappoints with its clichéd storyline and execution but also turns out be a strange visionless venture wherein the writer/director courageously dare to overlook performers such as Mahie Gill, Saurabh Shukla and Pavan Malhotra, who could have easily saved the project from being an utter disaster.

Putting it bluntly, here we have a film, in which Mahie Gill doesn’t even get some decent scenes (forget a well-written role) and the most senior in the cast Pavan Malhotra is brought in just 40 minutes before the climax as a supposedly fresh twist. So if you were expecting some explosive clashes between Jimmy, Saurabh and Pavan then the film has nothing at all. In fact one keeps waiting for them to deliver, which never happens in the entire duration because of its poor writing, direction and a completely unconvincing conclusion without any justifications.
In short FAMILY OF THAKURGANJ neither conveys something fresh as a concept based on gangsters and their families, nor offers any worth noticing performance except Pavan Malhotra trying his best, becoming the only savior towards the end. Its music and romantic angle has been forcibly inserted as usual for the obvious reasons. But above all, the film criminally wastes a dream cast, truly capable of converting any lousy film to at least one time watch. Unfortunately here we don’t even get that much content or drama to be honest.
Rating : 1 / 5
