Review: 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?'
One of my childhood memories is that of several relatives visiting us in Mumbai [presumably for a few days], but overstaying their welcome. Those days, the atithis were never looked upon as 'intruders'.
'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?' mirrors a reality, but the story has scope for not just humour and emotions, the staple diet of most Hindi movies, but there's a generous dose of devotional quotient that is well integrated in the storyline.
Do you miss movies of yore, helmed by masters like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee? 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?' may not be a 'Chupke Chupke', 'Golmaal', 'Chitchor' or 'Khatta Meetha', but it has a certain old-world charm that one misses in cinema of today.
Final word? Bring this atithi home!
It tells the story of Puneet [Ajay Devgn] and Munmun [Konkona], a married couple living in Mumbai. Their lives take an interesting turn when a distant relative, Chachaji [Paresh Rawal], turns up unannounced at their doorstep from a far-off village. The guest overstays his welcome, so much so that the exasperated couple comes up with various ploys to hasten his departure.
