A Story Set On The Nawabi Chic-Fangled Part Of Lucknow

Director Shoojit Sarkar has tried his hand at the social stage this time. In the backdrop of Lucknow, he has shown some characters whose feelings of laughing and crying over problems come together. The story is set in the part of Lucknow, where Nawabi once used to be chic. There are ruins now, which are being monitored by the government, tenants living there and the system.

One such ruin is Fatima Mahal, whose mistresses are Begum. Seventeen years younger than herself, she lives with Mirza (Amitabh Bachchan). Banke (Ayushmann Khurrana) is his tenant, who lives with his sister Guddu and mother. He also has difficulty in paying rent of 30 rupees a month. Due to this, Mirza and she do not get along at all.

Later, the situation becomes such that Shukla, an officer of the archaeology department, threatens to capture the palace. Marja himself is waiting for Begum’s death so that Fatima Mahal can name after her. A lawyer is also there to help him.

And in The End, The Bet Takes Some More Kills

Seeing the opportunity, Banke also creates an alliance with Shukla and a local property dealer. All the characters clash. Everybody tries to be smarter than each other, but in the end, everyone’s cleverness defeated. The bet is taken away by someone else.

Great work of Amitabh, Ayushman and Shoojit in Gulabo Sitabo

The entire film revolves around Mirza and Banke’s noises. Amitabh and Ayushmann have presented it well. Costume designer, prosthetic makeup artist have effectively portrayed Mirza and Banke’s troubling situation. While the story of writer Juhi Chaturvedi is strong, the direction of Sujit Sarkar is also useful. There is also a surprise element for the audience at the end of the film.

The Shujit government has appealed to people to watch the film through social media. He may have written, “Gulabo suitable watch leisurely and if it is not free, take leisure time and watch it leisurely.”
