Na Ghar Ke Na Ghat Ke narrates the tale of village simpleton Devaki Nandan Tripathi (Rahul) who comes to big bad Mumbai to try his luck. A newly married Devaki and his wife (Narayani) end up facing lot of troubles in the city. Though he gets a job at a weather bureau, he is often the butt of jokes by those around him for his naivety and simplicity. A big misunderstanding leads the couple to a police station where a corrupt police inspector (Paresh Rawal) tells Devaki to prove that the couple are husband and wife for real. What follows next forms the rest of the plot.
Debutante actor-director’s enthusiastic efforts go waste thanks to a lousy script. The film could have been an okay one time watch had it not been for the extremely irritating last 20 minutes of the film that literally test your patience. The only scenes that work are the post interval sequences between Rahul and Paresh Rawal.
Rahul fits his part perfectly and his naivety aids his character. Narayani Shastri hardly gets any scope but does well. Ravi Kissen charms despite playing a loud character. Two veterans who never fail to entertain – Paresh Rawal and Om Puri, yet again impress big time. Neena Gupta and Ananth Mahadevan are just about okay, with Mahadevan being too loud.
Lalit Pandit’s music is not the variety you can recall once you are out of the cinema hall. The unwanted item song appears like added on at the last minute. Other technical departments are average.
NGKNGK is a kind of a film that could have appeared good on paper while planning but falls flat on its face as the humour in the last few reels not only goes too much over the top but also offers nothing new. Watch it at your own risk!
