    Critics Review

    • Sometimes, big things come in small sizes... Sankat City may not boast of stars to lure the audiences, it may not have a colossal canvas [on the contrary, the making is very basic], it may not have a terrific musical score to act as a hook [there are hardly any songs here], but Sankat City succeeds, and succeeds largely, in its endeavour: Make the viewer laugh at the right places. One walks in with zilch expectations [the promos don't do justice to the product], but when you make an exit from the audi, it's with the feeling that the 2 hours were well spent.

      Comedies today, can be segregated into two categories -- Brain-dead entertainers and intelligent comedies. Films like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, Bheja Fry and Sankat City fall in the latter category. Let's be honest. Not all of us can think whacky or come up with a crazy madcap comedy like Sankat City. It requires a wild and imaginative mind to come up with one and most importantly, execute it with panache. Debutante director Pankaj Advani gets its right on both the counts. Sure, there are glitches in the narrative, but Advani compels you to sit and listen to the story he intends narrating.

      Final word? Don't give Sankat City a miss just because the film doesn't star the Khans or Kumars. This 'City' is worth a visit!
