Movie Review: Naram Garam (1981)

Here’s proof that even middle-of-the-road movies can suck

Think the combination of Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Utpal Dutt and Amol Palekar can’t go wrong?

Middle-Of-The-Road Mess

Middle-Of-The-Road Mess

Wrong! Desperately cashing in on the success of the classic comedy Gol Maal (1979), Naram Garam is a sorry mess of a film. The storyline is too drab to get into, and neither the simplicity of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s characters nor the potent mix of Amol Palekar and Utpal Dutt will keep you engrossed enough to watch it till the end. Palekar is called Ramprasad and Dutt is called Bhavani Shankar, and even the title track keeps making references to the rib-tickling Gol Maal. Unfortunately, nothing works and Shatrughan Sinha is an eyesore. Naram Garam is thanda-thakela and proof that even middle-of-the-road movies can suck. Watch Basu Chatterjee’s Chhoti Si Baat instead.

    This is such a deep blog! What can I say, youve hit the nail right on the head! You even added some videos to make it seem so much more real. Youve got a great way of communicating with the reader, a great way of making me feel like what you have to say is just as important to me as it is to you. Keep it up!
