Cast: Aftab Shivdasani, introducing Aamna Shariff, Linda Arsenio, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Manoj Pahwa, Sanjay Mishra, Meenakshi Sethi and Dolly Ahluwalia.
Direction: Robby Grewal
Rating: 3.5/5 – Worth a relish
The director of the movie Robby Grewal has kept a very apt name for his film. When we takle India on the whole, we see an ethnically hybrid India with lots of Mirch masala. We have amovie with traditional values blended with americal lifestyle hence the name aloo chat.
The drama hinges on a typical Lajpat family that is sent into a tizzy when the American returned son (Aftab Shivdasani) falls in love with a mualim girl (Aamna Sharrif). But can hardly break the news in this traditional house-hold ruled by a firm and disciplinarian papaji (Kulbhushan Kharbanda). his ritualistic mom and grandmom and his trouble maker mamaji (Sanjay Mishra). Aftab takes the help of family friens and Sexologist, Hakim Tarachand (Manoj Pahwa) to resolve the matter, whcih ghets even more complicated when the duo decide to do a DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge) Part II.
While AamnSharif manages to make the charming transition from telivision to films, its starwalts like Manoj Pahwa, Sanjay Mishra and Kulbhushan Kharbanda who keep the momemtum flowing. The film on the whole is a nice family entertaining time pass drama.
