Few actors can turn a mediocre film into watchable fare as Nawazuddin does, and "Ghoomketu" only reiterates that fact. For a film hawked as a comedy and a spoof, the effort to create humour becomes too evident. Realising as much perhaps (and because this is a film about Bollywood), the makers have lined up half a dozen B-Town celebrity cameos. "Ghoomketu" (Film on ZEE5); Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Anurag Kashyap, Ila Arun, Raghubir Yadav, Ragini Khanna, Swanand Kirkire, Razzak Khan; Direction: Pushpendra Nath Misra; Rating: * * (two stars). The fact does not actually do the right kind of advertising for the direct-to-OTT campaign -- indeed, if films with little or no traction fill up the digital libraries, the entire fad of getting relevant releases directly to OTT could perhaps come and go as unimpressively as the trend of video films did in the late eighties. That is the film''s big drawback. For instant impact, writer-director Pushpendra Nath Misra could hardly have created a funnier specimen. Raghubir Yadav as Ghoomketu's 'Dadda' would have been more effective if he did not give in to the tendency to ham.
There is abundant to and fro as the scene shifts every few seconds to Ghoomketu's village to witness the rona dhona of his ghoongat-covered wife (Ragini Khanna) and everyday nok-jhonk between the inexpressive father and compliant siblings, played reliably by the delightful troika of Raghuvir Yadav, Ila Arun and Swanand Kirkire. It was wrapped up a few years year ago, and waiting for a platform to release (you do spot Razzak Khan in a few frames). If Nawaz comes up with a stellar act, most others in the cast deserve accolades, too. We are, of course, not to overtly mull over business basics in a review. Having only written on wedding cards and truck slogans before this, Ghoomketu barely qualifies as talent let alone a promising one. "Ghoomketu" becomes one of the first Hindi films to go straight to OTT. Which should have made it an 'event release' of sorts, except one is aware that this is technically not a new film.

The problem with the jibes is they are funny only in fits. Ila Arun as Santo bua matches Nawazuddin's comic timing. Chitrangada Singh portrays the stereotypical Bollywood heroine shooting a song (the sort you don't seriously see in our films anymore). For instant impact, writer-director Pushpendra Nath Misra could hardly have created a funnier specimen. Yet as the new-look Nawaz adds an entirely different dimension to the smalltown hero prototype, he underlines once again the fact that his range as an actor is simply inexhaustible. Ghoomketu's distracted, disjointed, narrative acquires the tone of a dream whose quirk stems from naivete, not narcotics, complains Sukanya Verma. ... (Razzak Khan … Lauren Gottlieb does an item number.
Raghubir Yadav as Ghoomketu''s ''Dadda'' would have been more effective if he did not give in to the tendency to ham. Director Nikhil Advani as himself explains a shot to Amitabh Bachchan, who then brings up the climax of "Ghoomketu" as himself. Mishra's humour neither shows a knack for parody nor the idiocy to evoke a chuckle. If the idea is to paint his adventures as a mishmash of expectations and reality, the wobbly treatment dilutes it all. Uh, well only for Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Often this distracted, disjointed narrative acquires the tone of a dream whose quirk stems from naivete, not narcotics. With a book titled "How To Be A Bollywood Writer In 30 Days" in his bag, Ghoomketu runs away from sleepy Mahona in UP to Mumbai, with dreams of hitting the bigtime. Which brings us to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the primary reason you would want to check out this film. Khan was noted for supporting … Exciting as it may sound, none of these star attractions manage to breathe life into this half-hearted, half-baked shot at comedy. Ironically, the script of Mishra's long-in-the-making project now streaming on Zee5 is all over the place. Yet, the scriptwriting brainwave simply seems to begin and end with the character that Misra has created for his hero.
The story needed a little more life and a lot more irreverent laughs. That, the makers must have realised, is clearly not enough anymore. The stardust of Mumbai's glitz and glamour fuels the dreams of many starry-eyed small towners across India. Director Nikhil Advani as himself explains a shot to Amitabh Bachchan, who then brings up the climax of "Ghoomketu" as himself. One such aspirant from Mohana becomes the focus of Pushpendra Nath Mishra's wide-eyed, formless Ghoomketu (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) after its titular character runs off to Mumbai in a bid to become a Bollywood writer. Yet as the new-look Nawaz adds an entirely different dimension to the smalltown hero prototype, he underlines once again the fact that his range as an actor is simply inexhaustible.

Besides, the film does not lay bare anything about Bollywood that you are not already aware of. Yet, the scriptwriting brainwave simply seems to begin and end with the character that Misra has created for his hero. Swanand Kirkire has its moments as Guddan chacha.
Perhaps when he took up the role, the idea of personifying a 'Laut ke buddhu ghar ko aaye' appeared fresh and fascinating. The problem with "Ghoomketu" lies in its writing. Rather it is the done to death voiceover technique as Ghoomketu philosophically reflects on 'Bambai' and its Gateway of India and Ganpati identity and proceeds to cutely broadcast his wannabe objectives before a bored yet patient Bollywood producer. Chitrangada Singh portrays the stereotypical Bollywood heroine shooting a song (the sort you don''t seriously see in our films anymore). Which brings us to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the primary reason you would want to check out this film. The quirk about his character is evident. This is an easy part for Siddiqui, but not necessarily a right fit. He is known for his work on Hera Pheri (2000), Welcome M1LL10NS (2018) and Fool N Final (2007). That is the film's big drawback.
