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". With dialogues packed with rhymes, mispronunciations and double entendres, the film is a delightful adult comedy that keeps you in splits by the minute. The characteristic one-liners are crisp, tempered and never sound crass. If not funny, it at least elicits a chuckle. The script written by the director duo, takes the fantasy route to deliver fables and life's lessons meaningfully.
With an author-backed role, this film is Kunal Kemmu's canvas, and he delivers gloriously. A natural actor, he effortless slips into Guddu's shoes, fluently speaking Hindi in the Bihari lingo. Keiko Nakahara's guerrilla cinematography captures the pulse of Kolkata beautifully. Amar Mohile's reverberating music and background score is seamlessly layered with the visuals by editor Cheragh Todiwala, thereby enhancing the viewing experience.
Overall, Guddu Ki Gun is a worthwhile watch to unwind.
