Saibal Chatterjee The seriousness of the effort is passable. But overwhelming insipidity takes the shine off writer and director Pushpendra Nath Misra, a comical version of the small-town obsession with Bollywood. The sides pointing to the Mumbai genre films never find their mark. Some of the jokes are almost funny, but this story of an indescribable word creator who wants to write a new life in the city of tinsel is remarkably dazzling.
The plot is too risky. A thirty-something man from Mahona, Uttar Pradesh escapes the heavy lifting of his life and arrives in Mumbai hoping to become a screenwriter. But any chance of their (bad) adventures producing a roller coaster ride is quickly wasted. Ghoomketu is a bland affair that begins between a semi-rural family and the film industry without hitting any beat. This is despite the unmistakable elements of self-reflection in the script: Misra has its roots in Mahona, Lucknow district.

The titular hero (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) has no lost love for his irascible father (Raghubir Yadav). He composes slogans for autorickshaws and trucks, writes wedding cards, and writes political rally songs while waiting for his big break. He musters the courage to attempt a break from the past, but the future he desires eludes him.
Ghoomketu is looking for a job at Gudgudee, a local newspaper. The editor (Brijendra Kala) has no openings for job seekers, but offers the protagonist an introduction to the art of writing Bollywood cauldrons. Does the book bring Ghoomketu a whiff of good luck? That’s the question the rest of the movie answers.
Broadcasting on Zee5 after being stuck in limbo for years, Ghoomketu feels inevitably dated. The presence in the cast of the late Razzak Khan, who passed away in mid-2016, is a telling sign. In addition to the fact that the role of the deceased actor remains stunted, the film’s narrative style also reeks of obsolescence.
The pen pusher is at the end of its rope when, at a mass wedding, it hooks up with the wrong girl. Not exactly covered in glory. Not only does the body embarrass the bride, it also refuses to see her face because she is not the slim young man he expected her to be. That’s where it loses us.
A few days after the marriage, Ghoomketu, prompted by Aunt Santo (Ila Arun), flees to Mumbai with the family photo album. Her uncle Guddan (Swanand Kirkire), a grizzled youth leader, promises to take his nephew back to the family fold, no matter what happens, but the police do not have a photograph of Ghoomketu.
In Mumbai, a corrupt and clumsy policeman, Inspector Badlani (Anurag Kashyap), is assigned the job of finding Ghoomketu and putting him on the next train back to UP. But the unsuspecting agent’s incompetence gets in the way. The latter receives a 30-day ultimatum from the chief of police; Ghoomketu also has money for just one month’s rent. It is a race against time for both men.
Don’t expect a fascinating cat and mouse game here. The writer is supposed to be desperate to have an approved movie script, but his search never takes on the urgency of life or death. Other than that, the comic potential of Inspector Badlani’s ineptitude is barely tapped. Not for a moment does it seem that Ghoomketu or Badlani have the urge to jump out of their skin and go bankrupt.
The superficial comedy does not present anything that can provoke deep laughter in the belly, much less bring a smile to the lips. While the newspaper editor sheds sporadic light on Bollywood’s gender conventions that Ghoomketu must keep in mind when writing a script, the aspiring writer for his part falters from one form of storytelling to another as the producer continues to shift goals. .

When Ghoomketu writes a drama, he is asked to present a comedy. When he finishes a comedy script, the producer wants him to write a Star Trek-style science fiction fantasy with Spock imitations. In addition, it also has a stab in the horror genre: a pretext for the film to serve as a detour to the heart of a film presented by Bloodbath Films and titled Bloody Pool.
When it’s time for the would-be writer to try the romance, Ranveer Singh (a pale and grim shadow of today’s arrogant star) and Sonakshi Sinha team up to offer a variation on the DDLJ train station climax scene.
Amitabh Bachchan, too, steps in to provide a boost to the film’s fortune. He plays himself wearing the outfit of a prosecuting attorney in a movie within the movie. Chitrangada Singh and Lauren Gottlieb also appear for intermittent appearances. But all of this does not add lasting shine to the overall void.
Ghoomketu circles in search of a center. It doesn’t have one. Lead actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, laden with an undercooked character whose motives seem arbitrary, has no meat to dig into. The other cast members, several of them proven numbers, do little more than hover.
Raghubir Yadav, as the short-tempered patriarch of a rural family, praises and rants. The direction of its diatribes is inversely proportional to the decibel levels it scales. Ila Arun, in the role of the hero’s aunt, and Swanand Kirkire clear things up occasionally. But nothing they do can compensate for the film’s general caution.
And yes, Anurag Kashyap plays a policeman in such a half-hearted way that one wonders why he agreed to be a part of the film, and on the wrong side of the camera.
The stained designs on the protagonist’s colorful shirts summarize the nature of the film. He seeks attention, but the Ghoomketu flourishes fall off. The film tries very hard to stand out, but its legs are not strong enough to bear the weight of its ambition. It collapses in a heap.
