Agra, Sep 16 (IANS) “Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi”, an upcoming film starring character actor and comedian Kader Khan in his comeback role, is a clean and original comedy, says director Fauzia Arshi, who regrets not being able to shoot the movie in the Taj city.
“It is a Uttar Pradesh based film, using typical local dialect. We all, Kader Khan in particular, wanted to shoot a qawwali sequence in the Agra Fort, but the heat of June prevented us. We then shifted to Ahmedabad,” Arshi told IANS.
A major portion of the film has been shot in Uttar Pradesh.
The film stars Om Puri, Sanjay Mishra and Rajpal Yadav among others, who took the comedy in the film to new heights.
“It’s a clean, healthy and 100 percent original film with nothing lifted or inspired. The punches, the dialogues with ‘desi’ flavour and no double meaning words — these are all beautifully woven in the script to delight the intellectual (audience) and the masses,” the director added.
Arshi believes the movie will be a good laugh for adults and youngsters alike.
“The plot of the movie revolves around the chase for their most desired asset; the mystery of which unfolds in the movie. All in all, ‘Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi’ will enlighten and groom the youth with different and thought-provoking situations that are hilariously portrayed in the movie,” she said.
To add to that, Arshi pointed out that the USP of the film, releasing on October 16, is its music.
“Usually, comedies do not work on music. But we have soulful Sufi music and a romantic track for the masses.”
