Ghoomketu Movie Review | Premieres on ZEE5

Ghoomketu is a 2020 Hindi comedy-drama movie starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Ghoomketu. Witness the story of a passionate writer who arrives in Mumbai to become a famous scriptwriter in Bollywood. Premieres 22nd May 2020 only on ZEE5.

There is an aspiring screenwriter from Uttar Pradesh played by Nawazuddin, who encouraged by his belching Bua (Ira Arun) runs away to Mumbai to try his luck.

The rest of the film reads like the Adventures of  Bhoomketu in Blunderland, none of them exciting funny or revelatory. There is nothing this product of callow comicality tells me about what it takes to be a struggler in Bollywood. Way back in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi we had seen Asrani slumming it out in Bollywood his eyes expressing despair that no words can.

Bringing in the stars is really a self-defeating exercise in a film about a struggler dreaming to make it big.

Writer-director Pushpendra Nath Misra keeps interrupting his own narrative to show Ghoomketu’s father Raghubir Yadav and bua Ila Arun screaming their lungs out in what seems to be a mudslinging match where the mud splatters and sticks to the plot.

Anurag Kashyap said, “Every film is a labour of love and I saw the conviction in the director of Ghoomketu and hence decided to do something which is my least favourite thing to do, which is act. The film is funny and heartwarming.”
