Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Much of the second half is evidently inspired from Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, but there is none of that film’s sparkling wit at display here. The final scenes are unabashedly schmaltzy, and while the message itself is important, it is conveyed with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer.I’m going with two out of five for Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami. Promising but doesn’t quite take flight.

On the whole, Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is an entertaining, message-oriented film with a strong emotional base. It has merits but due to its very poor initial, dull promotion and dull pre-Diwali days ahead, it will go largely unnoticed. Even positive word of mouth will not help much so that the film will turn out to be a resounding flop.

Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is a fitting tribute to the common man who still values his self-respect more than his pay cheque. In times where materialistic things have taken precedence over people and good old values, ETKS is one of the most socially relevant films to have come out this year. It’s not just a film but a philosophy.

A vague reminder of another Anupam Kher classic, Khosla ka Ghosla, Ekkees Toppon ki Salaami may not be fast paced but you never really wonder about how long it will take to end. Similarly, some twists are predictable but the overall feel-good factor keeps you glued to your seats. Slightly substandard background score and cinematography mar this otherwise almost flawless film.Ekkees Toppon ki Salaami is one of those films that you can watch over and over again. Extraordinarily ordinary and proud of it, Ekkees Toppon ki Salaami reminds us of the important things in life in a highly consumerist world.

EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI is a satirical attempt at today’s commercial world that is interspersed with politics, power, greed and lust. This is one film which will make you laugh… laugh at the system and then laugh at yourself. The on-screen characters seem absolutely straight out of everyday life for they are the ones who do not need any make up to ‘highlight’ their roles. These are the characters that are very much a part of everyone’s day to day life. On the whole, EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI has a unique storyline and good performances while makes it an entertaining watch.

The first half is high on drama whereas it is the second half that takes you through a roller coaster of a ride which is full of laughter and thrill. There will be points in the second half where you will jump out of your seats with laughter. The message given via the film is very deep rooted but they have presented it in a humorous way and that keeps the momentum lively and doesn’t allow it to become boring at any point.

the first half of this film tries to be something which it clearly isn’t — with a mash-up song video featuring Neha Dhupia — and sloppy screenplay. It’s only minutes before intermission that the story picks pace and doesn’t wobble even for a second from then on. What works for Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is that it has something new to say about this city’s old ways of being. And that’s certainly worth the two-hour-plus runtime.

Neither is Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami unbearable, nor is it a good film by any standards; it’s somewhere in between. If your idea of going for a film is to get entertained and have a good time, then this is not something you would want invest your time in.

Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is not brilliant but somehow it wasn’t too bad either. It is semi watchable and despite its preachy tone, it survives your attention for being essentially noble at heart. I went with far too low expectations and hence probably came out to be a pleasant surprise. If you’re a movie buff who watches every film, this one wouldn’t be too much of a time waste.

  2. my review of ‪#‎EkkeesTopponKiSalaami‬ :
    A satisfying change from regular slapstick comedies! Give it a shot! [3/5]

    The lower middle class has been vanished from Hindi films for quite some time now. The last time we had something notable belonged to that part of the Indian population was Rajat Kapoor’s thoroughly believable and psychological introspective drama ANKHON DEKHI. EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI is far from joining that masterstroke in the same rank but that’s only because it chooses to be a mainstream film polluted with songs that rarely come with a dependable explanation and lousy melodrama meant to target the larger part of the picture. Still, it is a film with good content and a wise intent to highlight an honest common man’s want to have at least an honorable end to his struggled for long life.

    If given a chance, most would die to be born again but not to the same parents! Shekhar [Manu Rishi] and Subhash [Divyendu Sharma of PYAR KA PUNCHNAMA] never really approve their father’s lesser paid government job and his rock steady moral values to stay honest at any cost. Things change when Purushottam Joshi [Played by Anupam Kher] dies with false charge of being a corrupt employee just before he was to be retired. And now the sons are left with his last wish to have a 21 gun salute at his final ceremonial service in order to regain his lost respect.

    Ravindra Gautam’s EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI is a satirical take on today’s youth, political scenarios, and on the changing phase and face of media too. So, you will find many interesting characters and the deadpan jokes and good one-liners coming in free flow every now and then. When a state chief-minister [Rajesh Sharma] gets exposed in a scam of allotting government bungalow to his love-interest a flop Bollywood actress [Neha Dhupia], all he is concerned about the sum of the scam as it is too small to put him in the big league. You will also see a power-hungry mother [the veteran Uttara Baokar] pitching herself to the High Command modeled on the powerful kingmaker of Congress, as her son’s worthy successor. There is also a struggling writer in films [Aditi Sharma] now writing officially for the chief minister and in one sequence intelligently translates all his abusive, offensive and insulting remarks into a politically correct press-release.
    Filled with humor [most come from corruption & politics] and drama [soaked in middle-class values] that might sound outdated, film falters in the second half when most of the events look too convenient to be convincing and it all takes too much time to fizzle into the climax. Never mind! The performances never bore you. Anupam Kher outshines everyone and emerges as the strongest pillar of the film. With shades and emotions borrowed from any common man’s life, this one is his most absorbing performance in recent. Absolutely flawless! Manu Rishi & Divyendu don’t disappoint and stay true to their roles. Rajesh Sharma showers plenty of laughs and gags as the corrupt, lewd and loud-mouthed politician pampered by his opportunist mother. Uttara Baokar excels in that role. Neha Dhupia sizzles with her caricature-ish portrayal of camera-loving actress, especially in ‘Ghoor Ghoor Ke’ song where she appears as most of the top bollywood actresses in their best on-screen avatars.

    To conclude, EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI succeeds in making you uncomfortable with emotionally charged-up sequences but also gives you enough room to laugh out loud. A must if you want a satisfying change from regular double-meaning, sexy, slapsticks! [3/5].
