Story Line : Guddu Ki Gun is the tale of Govardhan aka Guddu (Kunal Kemmu), a Bihari settled in Kolkata. He is a door-to-door washing powder salesman, whose sales pitch is “Ek washing powder ke saath Guddu free”. While sharing a room with his close friend Ladoo (Sumeet Vyas), Guddu leads an amorous lifestyle in Kolkata. His travails begins when he ditches one of his girlfriends, Bholi (Aparna Sharma). Furious for forsaking his granddaughter, Bholi’s grandfather casts a black magic spell on him. The only way Guddu can get rid of the curse is to find true love and by staying faithful to her.
What’s Good : Story is interesting in this genre. Even it had some beautiful emotional moments with subtle message. Screenplay is OK. Dialogues are good at places. Credit goes to Director, writer duo Mr. Shantanu and Mr. Sheershak. First half is very boring most of time due to bad making and taking, surprisingly there are some movement of shots in second half, which gives a bit relief. Climax Mughal-e-Azam play is well written but visually it’s exaggerated. It could have been laughter riot but ends on jerky note. Performance wise Kunal Khemu as Guddu is very good. He is throughout balanced in a completely unbalanced film. Sumeet Vyas, as his friend Laddo is fine. Flora Saini as nurse is quite OK in her limited scope. Songs are just OK.
What’s Bad : Cinematography is too poor, directors and cameraman just don’t know how to make a film though the story is good. They even don’t bother to use zoom leave the other things like trolley, crane, jimmy or other equipment, due to this bad taking you get feel of listening a story rather than watching a film. Fix blocks always kills humor. They could have learned from songs choreography or action sequences but they don’t bother.
Our Opinion : Guddu Ki Gun is a one time watch for the story but making of the film have ruined the fun. But still you can watch it once.
