RGV has attempted a number of serious films in rapid succession and a light entertainer from his stable is a rarity. That sure whets your appetite for a film like Darwaza Bandh Rakho, which promises to be a laughathon. Besides, the captain of the ship in this case is an actor, Chekravarthy, who didn't create much an impact with Durga, but proved his credentials when he directed one of the short stories in Darna Zaroori Hai.
That raises the expectations from this low-budget enterprise...
Like a majority of RGV films, Darwaza Bandh Rakho has a novel premise. But most innovative and unusual themes run out of steam midway because the storytelling lacks that certain spark. Thankfully, Darwaza Bandh Rakho gets most things right in those 11 reels.
