Buddha Mar Gaya is all about money and its side effects. Laxmikant Kabadiya (Anupam Kher) is a business tycoon, whose company is on the verge of offering an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Rs 5000 crore. Post the IPO it would make LK’s company one of the largest business houses in the country. And ofcourse a lot of money within his family too.
However, LK dies a night before the IPO opens in the market. This leads to series of erroneous events. A holy spiritual man, by Vidyuth Baba (Om Puri) advices LK’s family to hide the news of his death for the next two days, till the time the application money for the shares would be received. In the process of hiding LK’s death, the family undergoes a lot of dramatic, sudden and some funny events.
A typical black comedy for the youth and the front benchers who would “die” laughing at some funny adult moments on adultery.
The director Rahul Rawail has managed to come out with a decent fare though the script could have been worked upon to block the loose ends in the story. Anyway, this 100 minutes film seems okay for time pass.
Anupam Kher, as a corpse, Paresh Rawal as the inquisitive servant in the family are the best performances in the film. Om Puri is good. Ranvir Shorey needs to come out of the wooden types. Rakhi Sawant as expected from her, exposes and titillates the audience to the core.
Definitely not the film which could watch sitting with your family. What does this mean? Well one can see it oneself or with friends of course and giggle all throughout the movie.
