But this film feels like a tired retread on all counts. How you can pull of such a feat with so many good actors is an achievement in itself. In a better film, the combined efforts of Shukla, Shergill, Tiwari, Sharma and Pahwa could have yielded the desired results. Here, they all go waste, and this includes the barely-there acts of the two ladies.For an effective film, you need both plot and treatment. Family of Thakurganj has neither, and a solid ensemble cast is let down, once again, by inept handling.

The first thing you notice about Family Of Thakurganj is the sheer number of influences that overshadow its effort at storytelling. It is almost as if director Manoj K Jha was trying to cross the thematic essentials of Gangs Of Wasseypur with the small town spiff of Dabangg and the humour-violence cocktail of Satya, in order to set up a Deewar-style disparity in ideals among two brothers.By turns, the film seems like a grim gangland saga that inadvertently becomes funny, and an attempted spoof of a gangland saga that is far from funny.

Writer Dilip Shukla’s story is quite average, the bigger problem here is that the plot which is weakly woven. But again, it’s the performances that will keep you hooked and not the narrative. Sheirgill nails it as the power freak goon and Sharbati (Mahie Gill), as Jimmy’s dominating wife, is convincing. Saurabh Shukla, as a goon and Supriya who plays mom to the boys, pull off fine performances. With a decent concept at hand, had the director focused on keeping the story tight, it could have engaged the viewers. The film’s length is problematic, even the humour and the one-liners don’t help in keeping the film afloat.

While the editing is of the worst kind, the screenplay compliments it in being equally bad. And the direction by Manoj K Jha, who has assisted Tigmanshu Dhulia in several of his films, is outright shoddy. At no point, he seems to be at the helm of affairs. Family of Thakurganj fits into the category of so bad it’s good films. To be fair to the makers, the audience in my theatre were laughing almost throughout the runtime, the only problem is the scenes weren’t meant to be funny. The movie tries really hard to be an intelligent affair and to deliver a social message as well but it is all pointless as nothing feels organic or sensible. If only the movie hadn’t taken itself seriously, I swear Family of Thakurganj would’ve been a riot.

Some films are plain hard to define and this one is one of them. One fails to understand the motive behind making such a film as this. Did director Manoj K Jha was inspired by such classics as Deewaar or The Godfather and simply couldn’t handle the task at hand. Did he deliberately set out to spoof the gangster genre? Did he intend it as a comedy then got the genres confused. Yes, we have seen directors like Guy Ritchie, Anurag Kashyap or Ram Gopal Varma successfully using humour to counterbalance the violence in their films. They have been able to do so because of a coherent screenplay, which is sorely lacking here. As a result, the film enters a downward spiral from which it’s unable to make its escape.
