gudduSTORY: Guddu (Kunal Kemmu), a Bihari salesman based in Kolkata, makes out with lonely housewives for fun. His interest in women is limited to physical intimacy. This hurts ‘bholi’ (Aparna Sharma), a wannabe ramp model, whose value system shuttles between puja ki thali and bikini blouses. Guddu’s pleasure-seeking lifestyle comes to a screeching halt, when he wakes up to a rude shock one day.

MOVIE REVIEW: Bholi’s grandfather curses the womaniser, rather his ‘gun’, turning it to gold. In order to break the curse, Guddu must find true love and marry her. The hero runs from pillar to post, to find the love of his life. Enters a geeky plain Jane (Payel Sarkar, with a Gracy Singh hangover) the only ‘unattractive’ solution to his problem.

Helping him in the process is a loyal friend/ sidekick (Sumeet Vyas). The duo must dodge the greedy (sexy nurse, silly doctor, sillier don and an anxiety-ridden Bengali man) who are after the gold. Does he succeed?

The film can give terrible sex comedies a run for their money. Kunal Kemmu tries his best to make this dickfest watchable but it’s outright repulsive. Strangely, not because it revolves around a male organ turning into gold but because the film has no substance or humour whatsoever. Your heart goes out to Kunal. The man has a good comic timing (Golmaal, Go Goa Gone) but the film lets him down. He still shows what he’s capable of in probably the only funny scene of the film, which falls towards the end. Kunal sneaks into a historic play dressed as Shah Jahan. When expected to speak Urdu for it, he mumbles, “Dialogues Gulzar sahab ne likhe hai shayad.”

Overall, this supposed adult comedy makes you squirm in your seat with its foolishness.
