The writer-director Sanjay Chhel has come up with a wacky enterprise, â€˜Maan Gayee Mughal-e-Azamâ€™. Widely popular for his comic flair, Sanjay Chhel, the director for this comic venture has done great on this front of â€˜MGMAâ€™ (as far as his direction is concerned). The flick certainly sends laughs on your face. The well-timed one liners spell magic with the viewers.
Cast: Rahul Bose, Mallika Sherawat, Kay Kay Menon and Paresh Rawal
MAAN GAYE MUGHALL-E-AZAM prompts you to break into guffaws. Even the one-liners — Chhel’s a pro at it — are dipped in wit-n-humour. Plus, the camaraderie between Paresh Rawal, Rahul Bose and Mallika Sherawat is superb.
Circa 1993: St. Louise, near Goa, is on a high alert due to illegal activities like RDX and arms landing at the coastal area. Set up in the same town is Kalakar Theatre Company, a theatre group of self indulgent dreamy actors who are always left with no choice but to perform the same age-old period play ‘Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam’ every time.
One fine day, they get to know that an underworld don is planning a bomb blast in the country. The drama company gets into the act to save the entire city from this blast.
Although the movie is laced with humour and carries the brilliant stars like Paresh Rawal, Rahul Bose and Mallika Sherawat, nevertheless it fails to attract the viewersâ€™ attention fully because the writers Sanjay Chhel and Sunil Munshi have tried to mismatch love, patriotism and terrorism all at the same time. The comedy factor â€¦ yesâ€¦impresses a lot but the terrorism factor .. doesnâ€™t at all.
