A good tale of ethics, the story is set on the backdrop of a village and it is called Hadbahedi. Apparently, they have a problem and that is identity crisis. The residents of the village feel that they are not being given their due identity and they find a ray of hope in the form of Chintu (rishi) who hails from the same place. His dream is to become a politician and so he hires a PR firm to do the needful. This has got the smart and sexy PR executive Devika (kulraj) and both come to Hadbahedi. However, Chintuji feels repulsive about the villagers and his contempt is seen. However, things change when he gets an offer from the next village. What happens from there should be watched on the screen.
The director has come up with a very witty plotline and both the presentation and narrative were good. The dialogues were hilarious, the script was strong and the screenplay was competent. Music and background score contributed well and the cinematography was top notch. Editing was required since the film got dragged at few places. The costumes and art department have also been good. Rishi Kapoor is the life and soul of the film and he was wonderful. Kulraj was sensuous and did her bit well, Priyanshu was effective, watch out for Grusha and Saurabh Shukla, Sophie was sexy as usual, Shabnam was impressive. The others contributed in their own way.
The film leaves the audience with a feel good factor and while the first half is very effective and builds up the plot in a very good way, the second half kind of changes a bit with the unwanted drags here and there. However, the climax is worth watching and it has been culminated very well. The film does not have a heavy star cast and all but the strength lies in the presentation and the content part of it. This leaves the audience with a positive impact.
