Ram Gopal Varma is always known for bringing something different to the screen be it directing with films like SATYA, JUNGLE, COMPANY and BHOOT or producing by giving his talented team of technicians a turn at directing with films like SHOOL, PYAAR TUNE KYA KIYA, ROAD and DARNA MANAA HAI. MMDBCH falls into the latter category!
The film revolves around Chutki(Antra Mali) who is completely mad over Madhuri Dixit and wants to be like her one day. She lives in a small town called Gajrola with her parents and younger sister. She is famous for her dances in the town in which she imitates Madhuri and she is dead keen to travel to Mumbai and become a actress like her idol.
her parents find out her dream they decide to marry her off.
Raja(Rajpal Yadav) has been Chutkis best friend since childhood and is
madly in love with her although he would never have the nerves to tell
her. He will do anything to bring a smile to her face and make her
happy. He comes up with a solution that if Chukti marries him he will
take her to Mumbai and fulfil her dream. The two get married and under
the false pretence that Raja is off to start a business in Mumbai the
two are off on the next train to hit the starry lights of Mumbai. Upon
reaching Mumbai they find out that things are not as easy as they seem
and everyone in Mumbai are after their own benefit. The two face
struggles and obstacles in every path and the road to stardom is much
harder than they thought.
After some false starts they encounter a film secretary who gives upcoming stars their first break(Govind Namdeo). He gets her a part in a dance video at first and after seeing her performance there he gets her a solo actress project with stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dev Anand, Shahrukh Khan etc.
Chukti and Raja rush to see the first day first show of the movie
where they are shocked to see that the theatre is nearly empty. They
listen to the disgusting comments made by the people in the theatres
and Chukti is heartbroken!
decides to move back to Gajrola with Raja and lead a simple life back
in her village....What happens next form the crux of MAIN MADHURI
DIXIT BANNA CHAHTI HOON!
terms of a story the film has been well written. Right from the early
first frames to the end the film flows extremely well on a single
track and keeps the viewer engrossed to what will happen next. The
film has a touch of realism throughout and one thoroughly indentifies
with what is happening on screen.
The screenplay of the movie is also superb and one can tell the effort gone into it.
Chandan Arora should be welcomed with open arms for daring to make
something different and emerging successful.
performance of the movie are the mainstay of the entire premise.
Mali gives one of the years best Female performances as Chutki. She
gets right into the skin of her character and emerges triumphant.
Those who think she is just a Urmila wanna-be should think again as
she proves that she is a actress to reckon with. Her puppy eyed face,
her non glamourous looks and her emotional sequences are all just
outstanding. The vunerability of her character is brilliantly executed
and Antra becomes Chutki and in the dance sequences when Antra mimics
Madhuri she is simply astonishing as one forgets that it is not
the entire movie being about Antra Mali the
best performance of the movie comes from Rajpal Yadav! After a
amazing debut in Varma JUNGLE, Yadav was mostly acting in a comic
routine with films like TNBP, THE HERO etc. but with this movie he
proves that he is one of the most talented actors in the industry! He
plays the simple and lovable role of Raja with utmost conviction and
one can't help but love his character. The manner in which he conveys
helplessness and his gamut of emotions will leave the viewer
gapefaced.Its rare that people like Raja exist today and Yadav manages
to convey the character of Raja "with a heart of gold" with
perfection! Just witness the scenes where he breaks down and cries-It
is rarely that we see a actor display such emotions with such a
natural flair. Without a doubt one of the best Male performances of
the supporting cast Govind Namdeo plays his part with conviction.
Raman Trikha is also convincing in a negative role. Reeta Badhuri and
Benjamin Gillani are good in their roles.
the film is OK. The camerawork is sketchy in parts and commendable in
by Amir Mohile is OK. The rendition of dance numbers like DHAK DHAK
and MAAR DALA and other various Madhuri Dixit songs are excellent and
their picturisations are also excellent.
All up MAIN MADHURI DIXIT BANNA CHAHTI HOON may not be everyones cup of tea. It is not your usual dose of masala entertainment and maynot appeal to everyone, but without a doubt it is a well made film. A simple story told from the heart which will touch the heart...Definetly worth a watch!!
