Our take

Kundan Shah’s thrillingly sharp debut is considered by many to be the greatest Hindi comedy of all time. A somber tone settles in among the slapstick, as two photographers accidentally capture a high-profile murder. This cult ’80s comedy of errors doubles as a dark satire on corruption in India.
