    With such a hackneyed story-line, it can only be duhcent.

    I watched this movie, and it made me laugh more often than not.
    It is a clean comedy, which is a rarity in Hindi movies these days.
    In fact, some of the humour was a throwback to the times of Hrishikesh Mukherji and Basu Chatterji, the purveyors of gentle and subtle humour.
    The movie has some truly hilarious moments, and Paresh Rawal takes centrestage, ably supported by others.
    The movie is based on a story of the same name, written by late Hindi hasya kavi Sharad Joshi.
    At least someone thought of making use of some eminent writer’s work rather than churning out some inane stuff in the name of comedy.
    In India, there is definitely some good literary work waiting to be made into movies, but most producers have no taste for such things.

    Atithi … has got a positive opening in India, according to the following reports
    (although boxofficeindia.com is yet to come up with hard numbers):



    In fact, the other movie ‘Road, movie’, starring Abhay Deol (“the one Deol who can act” in your words) is also supposed to be good, but somewhat weird.

    1. Here’s what BoxOfficeIndia has to say on this film:

    The film is likely to do around 12 crore nett over its first week and is unlikely to cover costs for Warner even with revenue from all sources as Indian theatrical business is not up to the mark.

    2. The story of the guest who overstays his welcome is hardly new. 🙁

    In our not so humble opinion, Indian directors are petrified of complexity and hence fall back on banal scripts like Atithi.

      the title reminds me of an old movie featuring Dr. RajendraPrasad in the lead http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0271390/ Bandhuvulosthunnaru Jagratha. 🙂 It Also has you “Favourite” Brahmanandam 😀

    I agree wid guruprasad.. I don’t like ajay devgan, but this movie is pretty decent and phunny 😀
    Offtopic: Did you guys watch nana patekar’s ‘Ab tak chhappan?’ Watched it yesterday and really liked it..

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    No, haven’t seen Ab Tak Chhappan. We like Nana, one of the few who can spell/get ‘acting’ right in India.

    @”Fares badly at box office” – Hey.. you guys say that to every movie.. you have said the same to My Name is Khan and it tops the list now.. ATKJ had a decent run at the India box office and I think it will show higher up the list in a few weeks..

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    You write above: Hey.. you guys say that to every movie..

    Most Indian movies are horrendous garbage, fare badly at the box office and our insightful posts on their poor box office performance reflect that reality accurately.

    Hey, we liked Ajay Devgan’s All the Best even though it fared badly at the box office here (in the U.S.).
