Ek Se Badhkar Ek: Funny, puerile and chaotic

Ek Se Badhkar Ek fails to live upto the expectations that can be attached to a director whose satirical comedy Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro still resounds in the memories of movie buffs.

Kundan Shah 's very first movie is perhaps the best work of his life. His following movies were quite likeable in their own ways, but none of them turned out to be exceptional like his debut.



His latest movie Ek Se Badhkar Ek is funny in parts, a bit puerile in between, and chaotic towards the end.

The film has Sunil Shetty playing a gardener's son, who, by a fortunate twist of fate, inherits a property of Rs 400 crore. But, there is a condition he must fulfill - he must become the most dreaded criminal in the city.

What makes Ek Se Badhkar Ek an average comedy is its shoddily written script and poor performances by its starcast. Sunil Shetty looks flat-faced with no expression for a good part of the movie, while Shekhar Suman often exaggerates his comic act. Raveena Tandon is just not capable of doing comedy and so is Isha Koppikar .

On the other hand, commendable performances come from people in marginal roles. Gulshan Grover , Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Shakti Kapoor, Deepak Shirke and Asrani keep the things lively with their entertaining acts throughout the film.
