Coming for the maker like Prakash Jha, one expected Crazy Cukkad Family to have some class but then this one is all about crass humour and forced situations that at times push you to cary instead of brining a smile on your face.
Crazy Cukkad Family is all about four siblings of the Beri Family; a greedy wheeler dealer (Swanand Kirkire), an aggressively ambitious daughter, Archana (Shilpa Shukla), the insipid, desperate for a green-card second son (Kushal Punjabi) and the foreign returned youngest one (Siddharth Sharma).
They all suffer from family phobia, cannot stand each other, not even their respective spouses or parents, but their common need of money is what that draws them together.
News of their father breathing his last makes them rush back to their family home, as each expects a share of his property. However, things go out of control when their lawyer informs them of their father’s last wish.
Now walks in a righteous, loyal non biological son by the dying father. He is actually their servant (Manohar). To add to all this, everyone gets a shock when one of their son declares himself to be gay.
Not this is what forms the basic crux of the film, which according to me is so fresh and never seen before.
Lyricist and writer Swanand Kirkire, who plays the role of the eldest son in the Beri Family has done flawless acting and deserves applaud for his comic timing. Shilpa Shukla too has pulled off her role quite well.
Crazy Cukkad Family itself lacks ambition as it seems content with little. The film is a comedy desperately in need of genuine laughter. You can’t even force yourself to have a faint smile forget laughing out loud.
One is amazed at Prakash Jha actually producing a film like this.
Overall, Crazy Cukkad Family is not worth a watch.
