Chala Mussaddi Office Office - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Chala Mussaddi - Office Office. If there is any award for posthumous achievement by an individual, Musaddi Lal would lap it hands down. For what greater feat for a man than to prove that he’s alive and therefore a legitimate beneficiary of the pension that’s been stopped on the ground that he’s met his maker!

The persecution of a common man at the hands of the irrevocably corrupt acquires larger proportion in the overlong celluloid version of the telly sit-com of the same title. But does it pack in more laughs as well. Nah! For the first part of the film as you see Mussaddi Lal doing the last rights of his deceased wife and bribing his way forward right from avaricious pundits to corrupt railway officials, you laugh along at the simple retired teacher’s misfortune of being exploited in a system where things don’t move until palms are greased.

Writer Ashwani Dhir and director Rajiv Mehra toss in the usual suspects, Bhatia (Manoj Pahwa), Pandey (Hemant Gupta), Patel (Deven Bhojani), Usha (Asawari Joshi), and Shukla (Sanjay Mishra) to set up the plot. We see the hapless Mussaddi being denied his pension because the record books show he is dead. So the sexagenarian is asked to prove that he’s alive.

An interesting premise indeed and we had laughs galore when the story unspooled on the idiot box. But on the big screen, the same 30-minute idea being rubber-stretched to two hours makes for a tiresome watch. The humour is strictly satirical and takes potshots at the babus who warm the seats in their dusty offices and do their over-the-table duties only after the mandatory under-the-table exchanges.

The angle of the empowerment of the exploited and persecuted Mussaddi in the dying moments of the plot comes too late to save the film. Yet, the performances from the likes of Pankaj Kapur, Manoj Pahwa and Sanjay Mishra make the film just about watchable.

Rating: 2 stars out of 5
