Posted: November 3, 2014 in 100 remarkable Indian films, Dibakar Bannerjee, Hindi films


In his debut film, Dibakar Bannerjee chooses a contemporary topic, that of land mafias exploiting innocent home and land buyers to the hilt. KKG deals with the predicament of an honest elderly man (Anupam Kher) when he buys a plot of land from a property dealer and gets duped in the process. The narrative unfolds the two sons’ (Prabin Dabas & Ranvir Shorey) effort at revenge/retrieval of the lost money (given away in the initial transaction by their father) with the assistance of a few others. The performances by Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Navin Nischol, Ranbir Shorey, Pravin Dabas, Tara Sharma, Navin Nagpal, Vinay Pathak & Rajesh Shrivastava are first rate.

The director captures the life and eccentricities of the characters from the Capital city effectively. The humor laced treatment of a serious subject makes the film enjoyable, and doesn’t allow it to become boring at any point.
Rating: 4 out of 5
