Bhaji in Problem Review: Watching the Punjabi Industry grow, here comes Akshay Kumar entering the scene to en-cash the current trend, producing yet another comedy of errors featuring the singing star Gippy Grewal in the lead. Having nothing significantly new to offer in its script, Bhaji in Problem purely focuses on giving only one thing to its audience right from the very first scene, which is Comedy. It basically scores because of its well- written, witty and hilarious dialogues rendered in a punching style by the entire cast. And since Punjabi comedy largely or rather solely depends upon its comic dialogues only written in a raunchy style, Bhaji in Problem delivers the goods and you mostly feel satisfied with the content served.
Another major achievement of director Smeep Kang in this latest venture remains that the master is able to generate almost the same impact of his previous hits, even without two big veterans in the team namely Jaswinder Bhalla and Binnu Dhillon. And considering the name, fame & comic timing of these two actors, its nothing short of a big triumph to deliver such a product without their ‘much desired’ presence & contribution. Having said that, a few still might feel that the film could have reached much greater heights with the complete team performing together, as seen & enjoyed in their last hit CARRY ON JATTA. In short you are sure going to get entertained while watching BHAJI IN PROBLEM too since this also has the same energetic kind of second half with many hilarious one liners & particularly B. N. Sharma giving you a real good time.
Gippy is amazing as always and this is first movie Ghuggi plays a lead better than Gippy and has good screen presence with amazing dialogues. Akshay and Harbhajan Singh are hardly for two scenes so don’t expect much on acting part from these two biggies. Karamjeet Anmol and Ragini Khanna are amazing in their role. Other actors who appeared in Bhaji in Problem are Om Puri, Rana Jung Bahadurand Avtar Gill are strictly okay.
