Movie Review: Paresh Rawal's 'Dharam Sankat Mein' is disappointing

Star Cast: Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah, Annu Kapoor


Director: Fuwad Khan


Producer:Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Trigno Media


Claps For: Paresh Rawal's comic timing, concept


Slaps For: Length and pace of the movie, climax


Popcorn Refill: Interval


Story: The film tells the story of a Hindu man, Dharampal (Paresh Rawal) who goes through an identity crisis, after he discovers that he was adopted and his biological parents are Muslim. In a quest to know who was his biological father, Dharampal decides to take help from his Muslim neighbour Nawab Mehmood Shah (Annu Kapoor). Whether he manages to find his biological father or no and how does his new identity land him in a fix is what makes the main plot of the movie.


Performance: Paresh Rawal as the confused individual trying to cope up with his new identity is phenomenal. He will make you empathize with his situation. However, his character doesn't keep you intrigued and makes the story predictable. Annu Kapoor as the Muslim lawyer is good in his role. His perfection is visible in his role. Naseeruddin Shah's role is a bit disappointing. Given the caliber Shah has, it is disappointing to see him as Neelanand Baba. The actor has hardly any scenes in the first half and the ones in second half are misfit.


Direction: Fuwad Khan had great script in hand but he fails in execution. Presence of such stalwarts as his star cast, the film could have fared exceptionally well, had it been cooked properly. The film's first half is humorous, crisp and watchable. But the moment you get done with the interval, the film starts dropping down. Naseeruddin Shah's role lacks depth. In fact, the message that the movie is trying to convey gets lost midway. He could have done a much better job, especially with the climax. Certain scenes were completely picked up from 'OMG: Oh My God!' And not to forget, the songs were just not necessary in the movie.


Combo-on-Offer: PK + OMG: Oh My God = Dharam Sankat Mein


Verdict: We give the film slaps for its pace, content and approach
