Ghoomketu Review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Comedy Collapses In A Heap.


Pushpendra Nath Misra’s Ghoomketu had been unreleased for a couple of years. It has at long last discovered another rent of life on account of Steaming platforms. Its staleness, however, is evident even in certain scenes of the film.

Plot of Ghoomketu

Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the eponymous role, a 31-year-old from Mahona in Uttar Pradesh. He flees from home to attempt his karma as a screenwriter in Mumbai. He has no relevant experience, having written wedding greeting cards and on the backs of trucks.

His family, realizing that he had held Bollywood dreams since a long time ago, goes to the police to record a missing person’s report and urges them to dole out the case to a Mumbai cop. The case is given over to Inspector Badlani (Anurag Kashyap), a fool who hasn’t unraveled a case in 15 years and doesn’t think to examine the person who has recently leased the room close to his – no prizes for think about what that’s identity is.


It makes for an interesting premise, particularly with a cast that is so gifted – separated from Siddiqui, there’s his grumpy dad (Raghubir Yadav) and auntie (Ila Arun), in addition to a few of appearances by Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Chitrangda Singh and Amitabh Bachchan.

Be that as it may, sadly, the cast is let down somewhere around stale jokes.

Failure is the choppily altered content that hauls even though the film isunder two hours in length, and profoundly childish diversion. For example, the unrefined, unfeeling fat-disgracing that Ghoomketu perpetrates on his better half, Janaki Devi (Ragini Khanna). One may state this is only a depiction of the real world, however the way that he shows no regret makes it sound increasingly like an underwriting of this joke.


The film has some good times minutes, particularly the ones highlighting Ila Arun as the auntie who knows where her nephew has gone yet stays quiet. All the dream successions were delineating Ghoomketu’s attempts at scriptwriting, which is the place all the appearances come in. Sauteli Ma, Khooni Bathroom, and other strange film titles and contents do liven up the procedure; however it appears like they have been acquired to conceal for the feeble content.

Ghoomketu starts well and closures well, yet baffles in the middle. A lot was expected from a movie with such great cast yet it was undelivered. It is streaming on Zee5. Stay safe, Stay tuned.
