Movie Review: Guddu ki Gun -Firing blanks most of the time


Guddu ki Gun

Cast: Kunal Khemu, Sumeet Vyas, Payel Sarkar, Aparna Sharma

Director: Sheershak Anand, Shantanu Ray Chibber

The premise has a Bihari salesman, a Lothario, Guddu (Kunal Khemu) becoming accursed by one of his victim’s parent. The resultant is his male organ now looks like a gun made from solid gold and his ability to charm the ladies now appears largely diminished.

This attempt at raunchy sex comedy has it’s heart in a daring space but along the way appears to have caught on to a fear psychosis that tempers the escapade and makes it well short of enjoyable. So the writing never goes the distance and the truncations thereof almost take on the look of a ritual dismembering.

Guddu has to give up his wayward ways and find a steady love in conspicuously unattractive Kaali (Payel Sarkar) if he wants to be re-membered. To complicate matters, there are disgruntled husbands’ by the name of Antique Moshai and Don who are out to dis-member him for vengeance and riches. It’s a convoluted game-plan and has some light hearted moments but by and large it’s just tedium and bedlam. More of a ‘Mastram’ than a ‘Hunterr.’ Performances are likeable though.
