Total Siyapaa – Film Review

Total Chaos


Total Siyapaa

Settled in London, Aman (Ali Zafar) hopes to marry Asha (Yaami Gautam), an Indian girl, also based in London. Asha is of Indian origin and Aman is a Pakistani national, both are residents in the United Kingdom.

Aman visits the girls parents’ house to seek their permission. On the day when he is supposed to meet Asha’s parents, an unfortunate incident occurs as due to some misunderstanding he is mistaken as a terrorist and goes through the strip-search by the cops.

He is let off at the station, and is in lowest of his spirits and wants to postpone his meeting with the girl’s parents for some other day. However Asha is insistent that he finish the task on that day itself, and despite his hesitation, they head for the girls parents house.

Aman finds it very difficult to impress her family especially when they come to know that he is a Pakistani.

As the title suggest Total Siyapaa means Total Chaos. It is about the series of unfortunate events that befall a good-hearted but helpless Aman.

It is not only a bad day for him. Asha’s family happens to be a collection of weirdest characters as that of her over the top mother, the Pakistanis-hating brother, her sister and her dramatic grand father who hears a little less, and then finally her dad.

Total Siyapaa is presented by the team which produced ‘A Wednesday’ and ‘Special 26’ both of which incidentaly were critically acclaimed as well as commercial success.

Marketed as a rib-tickling rom-com as marketed in its trailers, the film disappoints as the supposedly funny instances just fall flat. The film is far from being a funny film with chaotic and outrageous situations.

The talent powerhouse Anupam Kher is there for few scenes in the end, where as the viewers get sick of over-the-top Punjabi mother’s character of Kirron Kher. Characters which need a mention are that of Asha’s younger brother and her sister. The brother is a typical guy who is anti-Pakis in the UK, while her sister who has a daughter, has left her stingy husband who has the habit of giving missed calls on the mobile to make the other person call him back.
