NAUGHTY @40 and its inspirations.

Before making the recent serious movies based on few realistic subjects, director Jagmohan Mundhra was more associated with many controversial projects made around the subject of sex. And probably NAUGHTY @ 40 was also planned on those similar lines as a Sex-Comedy with Govinda playing a 40 years old virgin looking for help from his friends.

The film has a very stale look may be due to its long in the making time span. Govinda tries his best to give you the same old good time in the theater, but in the process fails miserably. The film remains a badly made comedy which neither makes you laugh nor keeps you hooked on to the screen effectively.  Moreover, NAUGHTY @ 40 is clearly inspired from two major sources. One as the name suggests is obviously the English Sex Comedy “THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN” released in 2005. The first half of the film is strictly written around this hilarious plot not exploited in an entertaining way at all.
But the second half of the movie is heavily inspired from one of our own Bollywood’s Sex-Comedy’s called “ANUBHAV” released in 1986 which had Shekhar Suman, Padmini Kolhapure and Richa Sharma in the lead. In fact this film became hugely famous in the year of its release due to its highly controversial bold scenes which were the first of its kind in Indian Cinema at that particular point of time. The plot of marrying a girl having a childish mind knowing nothing about the rituals and adjustments post marriage straight away reminds you of that enjoyable comedy of the mid eighties and its famous scenes.

doesn\'t \'anubhav\' reference sound like \'tan-badan\' (Govinda\'s debut)?
did Shekhar Suman\'s film career end due to these controversies like utsav as well? he was a better actor than the one film wonders of that time and current ones.

You are very right.......Tan-Badan has a storyline similar to Anubhav.... But there is on more twist in the tale.
Both these movies were released in 1986 only and interestingly TAN BADAN released before ANUBHAV.

And I am sure going to add this in the article too along with your name obviously.

Thanks for sharing it.
